The Buffalo News is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with free agent guard/center Seth McKinney. The deal is believed to be for one year.
McKinney, soon to be 30 years old, is a seven-year pro that spent 2008 with the Cleveland Browns as the team's top reserve on the interior offensive line. With starting experience at both guard and center, McKinney brings starting experience to the Bills' interior line depth - a spot sorely lacking after the February release of Derrick Dockery. McKinney has started 45 games in his career.
A native of Buffalo, Texas (there's another Buffalo?), McKinney has spent time with the Browns and Dolphins, who drafted him in 2002. He becomes the latest in a pool of players in contention to start at left guard - a group that includes tackles-by-trade Kirk Chambers and Demetrius Bell.
