Buffalo Bills sign Doug Legursky; left guard competition changes

Jamie Squire

Buffalo's newest offensive lineman could very well contend for a starting job this summer.

After visiting team head quarters on Tuesday, free agent offensive lineman Doug Legursky has signed with the Buffalo Bills. The team announced the move Wednesday afternoon, releasing linebacker Greg Lloyd to make room on the 90-man roster.

Legursky, who will turn 27 next week, is a former undrafted free agent out of Marshall that has been with the Pittsburgh Steelers since 2009. In his four years in the league, he's accumulated 17 starts and 50 game appearances as an oft-used reserve.

At bare minimum, Legursky profiles as a seasoned backup option on the interior offensive line, and in particular for center Eric Wood, who still has not completed a full 16-game season as he enters his fifth pro season. It's also quite possible that the 6'1", 315-pound Legursky could wind up as a serious contender for the starting left guard competition that will also involve Colin Brown, Sam Young and Chris Scott (and potentially others).

In fact, the Bills included that very notion in their press announcement of the move, writing that Legursky is "expected to be a prime candidate for the starting left guard competition."
