After being rumored last night, it became official today that the Buffalo Bills and Kraig Urbik agreed to a four year, $13.3 million dollar contract with a $3.5 million dollar signing bonus.

It’s amazing how Urbik was a third round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft for the Pittsburgh Steelers, was ultimately waived in September 2010, claimed by the Bills two days later and hasn’t looked back.

I think this is an excellent signing as he’s a key point of the Bills offensive line, a very good right guard and in a pinch, he can play center as well. He did in the past when Eric Wood was hurt. I also like this signing a great deal because of the fact that Urbik and also soon to be free agent Andy Levitre share the same agent, so he might be signed next, although it will be for more money and more years. I hope so, anyway.

Following a 1,000-yard season for third-year back C.J. Spiller, Bills general manager Buddy Nix is trying his best to keep the foundation of a suddenly above-average line that he has built in his three seasons while at the helm. If this line can stay itact, I think the sky is the limit for this running offense, especially if Spiller is let loose next season. That might happen if a coaching change happens first.
