Doug Legursky contract details: two years, $2 million with Bills

It's a meager contract for a veteran lineman, but only three of his fellow Bills linemen will be paid more in 2013.

Details are beginning to emerge on the contract that offensive lineman Doug Legursky signed with the Buffalo Bills last week.

Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 reported yesterday that Legursky signed a two-year contract worth a total of $2 million. It's not clear how much of that contract is comprised of bonus money, but we do know from NFLPA records that Legursky is scheduled to make $800,000 in base salary in the 2013 season.

The contract may seem meager - and it is - but only three Bills offensive linemen are slated to earn more in base salary than Legursky in 2013 (Eric Wood at $2.3 million, Erik Pears at $2.1 million and Kraig Urbik at $2.05 million). Buffalo is very young and unproven across much of the offensive line and especially down the depth chart, and that's why Legursky - who is significantly more experienced than his competitors for the starting left guard job - has a great chance to start in Week 1. He's already splitting first-team reps with Colin Brown.
