OL Pitts visits Bills

Posted Jul 26, 2010

The Buffalo Bills hosted free agent offensive lineman Chester Pitts at One Bills Drive on Monday.

Pitts (6'4" 308) is an eight-year NFL veteran that has spent his entire career with the Houston Texans, where he has been a starter since the club made him a second-round pick in 2002. He's played primarily left guard for the Texans, but has also spent time at left tackle.

The 31-year old lineman had not missed a single start in his career until last season when a knee injury in Week 2 landed him injured reserve.

Buffalo is believed to be looking for interior line depth. Behind projected starters Andy Levitre and Eric Wood, only Kirk Chambers has appreciable NFL experience among the interior linemen on the Bills roster.

Pitts reportedly worked out for a pair of other NFL clubs last week.
