The Buffalo Bills have been looking for help along the offensive line and, following a workout on Tuesday, the team settled on four-year veteran Doug Legursky. Legursky spent the past four seasons as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, appearing in all 16 games for the team last season.
The veteran offensive lineman spent the majority of his career with the Steelers at center, but it's expected that he'll compete for the starting left guard spot left open after the departures of Andy Levitre and Chad Rinehart. Legursky told the team's website that he's ready to compete for playing time wherever he can get it:
"I've had a starting season at guard," Legursky said. "I've played just as much guard as I have center, but whatever they need me to do, right, left, center, fullback, tackle, just throw me in there and I'll get the job done."
If Legursky isn't able to claim the starting spot at guard, it seems that there's a good chance he'll serve as the team's primary backup at a couple of the interior line positions -- something he obviously seems comfortable doing going forward.
To make room for Legursky, the Bills released linebacker Greg Lloyd.
