Bills re-sign safety Bryan Scott

ESPN's John Clayton is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have re-signed unrestricted free agent Bryan Scott to a two-year, $3-plus million contract.

The six-year veteran logged starts at both safety and linebacker in 2009, ending the season with 81 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble. He did miss several weeks with an ankle injury before making the switch to linebacker, and also sat out the final two weeks of the season with a concussion.

Scott, 29, is likely to move back to strong safety as the team transitions to the 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator George Edwards. The decision to bring back Scott preserves the Bills' depth at the position, as Scott's physical style of play complements the skill sets of fellow safeties Jairus Byrd, Donte Whitner and George Wilson rather well.

The NFL's free agent signing period is set to begin at midnight tonight. Keep it locked in to Buffalo Rumblings for all the latest.
