Bills sign Doug Legursky

The Bills brought a couple of veteran offensive linemen in for visits on Tuesday and signed one on Wednesday.

Guard/center Doug Legursky has agreed to a contract with the team while Tyronne Green will have to look elsewhere for a 2013 gig. Legursky played 50 games for the Steelers over the last four years, starting 17 times at both interior line spots.

Legursky will be reunited with Bills General Manager Doug Whaley, who held a personnel role with the Steelers before heading to Buffalo. He’s not the first former Steeler to make that trip as Kraig Urbik, Chris Scott and Keith Williams have all wound up with the Bills after starting their NFL careers with the Steelers.

Legursky is likely ticketed for a backup role, although the Bills are still sifting through their options at left guard. Sam Young, Colin Brown and Scott are all possibilities for that spot and Legursky could also find his way into the mix at some point.

    Nice I have him in Madden.

    Good player, especially at center. The Steelers will definitely miss him when Pouncey goes down (and he will go down) with an injury again this year.

    Opponents would try to beat Legursky with a “swim” move until they realized he was born with flippers instead of arms.

    Seems like a solid addition. Let the competition begin!

    I’m picking the Bills for the SB now.

    Best franchise ever makes wisest decision ever by dumping reliable backup center. Hmmm, maybe they aren’t the best franchise ever – maybe we should ask Beggar Ben’s ducks about that?

    Great signing. If Eric Wood goes down at any time during the season, we won’t have to worry about who will replace him. Legursky has proven himself totally capable of stepping up when he’s called upon. Solid sign Mr. Nix! Hmm Hmm, I mean Mr. Whaley.

    Really good backup during his time in the Black `N Gold. Hate to see him go and, frankly, I am at a loss as to why the Steelers let him walk. Plays both guard positions and center at a high level (for a reserve) and never complained about moving around.

    Good luck, Doug, hope to see you back in the Burgh in a few year :)

    Here is the value player the Bills have been looking for. How’s Levitre’s knee these days.

    Could very well end up starting in one of the guard spots.. He definitely adds depth and versatility.

    Well I guess there are worse teams whose hand-me-downs we could end up with.

    The Big Legursky. Nice signing. The O-Line is now solid again.

    We’ve also addressed a glaring need at having more Dougs on the team.
