Joe Buscaglia at WGR 550 is reporting that the Buffalo Bills and long snapper Garrison Sanborn have agreed to a three-year contract extension. Aaron Wilson reports that it's a $3.21M deal with a $530K bonus. Sanborn, entering his fourth season out of Florida State, was set to become a restricted free agent.

The Bills signed Sanborn as an undrafted free agent out of college in 2009, where he promptly beat out Ryan Neill (who has since spent time in St. Louis and San Diego) and held onto the job for three full years. Here's the true measure of how good Sanborn has been in his role: it's tough to remember a single poor snap in the past three seasons. His contract extension, if the report is accurate, is well-deserved.

Sanborn was one of three impending restricted free agents that the team may look to give longer-term deals this spring, joining guards Kraig Urbik and Chad Rinehart. With more than a month remaining until the start of free agency, it's possible that the Bills will complete more re-signings before the new league year begins in early March.
