The Bills have re-signed a backup quarterback.  So it makes sense that they also have signed a backup offensive lineman to protect him.  On the bench.

Colin Brown, who would have been a restricted free agent, has signed a two-year, $1.445 million contract, per a source with knowledge of the deal.

Brown received a signing bonus of $25,000.  He’ll earn a base salary of $630,000 in 2013, along with $30,000 workout bonus.  The deal contains a split salary of $358,000, which will be paid in the event Brown lands on injured reserve.

For 2014, Brown has a base salary of $730,000 and a workout bonus of $30,000.
