Bills re-sign TE Klopfenstein

Posted Mar 11, 2010

The Bills addressed their thin numbers at the tight end position Thursday re-signing Joe Klopfenstein.

Klopfenstein (6'5" 262) was originally signed by the Bills last season on two separate occasions (Nov. 18, Nov. 28). He appeared in just the season finale for Buffalo making one reception for 11 yards in the 30-7 victory over the Colts.

A former second-round pick, Klopfenstein is known as a good blocking tight end. The 26-year old has 38 career starts with 34 receptions for 397 yards and two touchdowns.

Buffalo has only one other tight end under contract in 2009 fourth-round pick Shawn Nelson. Derek Schouman, a restricted free agent, was tendered a qualifying offer last week. Jonathan Stupar is an exclusive rights free agent.
