Just moments ago, the Buffalo Bills announced that the team had reached a contract agreement with free agent running back Tashard Choice, who will return to the Bills in 2012 as the favorite team's No. 3 running back. He'll compete with 2011 fifth-round pick Johnny White for that role.

Financial terms of the deal are undisclosed, but it's likely in the range of the one-year deals that Ruvell Martin and Derek Hagan inked earlier this off-season.

Choice, 27, joined the Bills for their final six games of the 2011 season after he was claimed off of waivers from the Washington Redskins. In those six games, playing second fiddle to starter C.J. Spiller, Choice carried the ball 23 times for 70 yards and a touchdown, and also caught seven passes for 51 yards. In his four-year career as a reserve in Dallas, Washington and Buffalo, Choice has rushed for 1,216 yards and nine touchdowns.

With a healthy Fred Jackson returning to Buffalo's lineup, Choice's role will be highly limited barring an injury to either Jackson or Spiller - and that's if he can beat out White, who was a valuable special teams performer as a rookie.
