In a long-anticipated move, Bryan Scott confirmed via Twitter on Wednesday that he'd re-signed with the Buffalo Bills. The veteran linebacker/safety has been with the Bills since 2007, making the 2012 season his sixth with the organization.

Naturally, terms of the deal have not been disclosed, though they could be at some point in the near future.

Scott, who will turn 31 next month, has emerged as a valuable sub-package reserve in recent seasons, where he has been asked to play in nickel situations as a linebacker with coverage responsibilities. It's a role he has generally performed well; over the last two seasons specifically, he has accumulated 105 tackles, four sacks, two interceptions, a fumble recovery and two touchdowns.

Scott's re-signing means that second-year pro Da'Norris Searcy, who is a similar body type to Scott, will be able to remain at the strong safety position as the chief reserve to starter George Wilson. Scott is the second player to re-sign this week, joining wide receiver Derek Hagan.
