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.
