Bills re-sign OL Chambers

They had been working on it for a while, but on Wednesday a new deal for Bills offensive lineman Kirk Chambers was completed as he became the second unrestricted free agent on Buffalo's roster to re-sign with the club this offseason.

The four-year veteran has spent the past two seasons with Buffalo, serving primarily as the team's swing tackle. Appearing in all 16 games last season Chambers made four starts last season with one start at right tackle, one at right guard with two starts at left tackle in the final two regular season games of 2008.

In those final two games Buffalo averaged 124 rushing yards per game.

No word on whether Buffalo plans to make him their primary reserve tackle, but there's the chance that the reliable Chambers could be considered for the Bills' vacant left guard position after the release of veteran Derrick Dockery late last week.

At the very least Chambers provides the Bills with good depth and versatility, something they needed with three of their other veteran linemen also free agents.
