Doug Legursky, Tyronne Green visit Buffalo Bills

New, comments

With a pending left guard competition and unproven depth on the interior of the offensive line, the Bills are now bargain shopping.

The Buffalo Bills are apparently in the market for better depth on the interior of their offensive line, where two Tuesday free agent visitors - guard Tyronne Green and center Doug Legursky - make their living.

Legursky is the more notable of the two names, considering that he's a four-year member of a Pittsburgh Steelers organization to which Buffalo's new-look front office has strong ties. A former undrafted free agent out of Marshall, the 27-year-old Legursky has made 17 career starts with the Steelers, mostly as an injury fill-in (particularly for center Maurkice Pouncey).

New England signed Green as a free agent in early May following four years with the San Diego Chargers, but he was released late last week. The 27-year-old has 28 career starts as a former fourth-round pick out of Auburn, with 13 of those coming in his first year as a full-time starter in 2012.

Buffalo enters training camp with a brewing competition at left guard, and it's conceivable that either of these experienced veterans could immediately jump into that conversation. Legursky would also provide serious competition in the backup center slot for second-year pro David Snow; fortifying that position might be a good idea, as starting right guard Kraig Urbik might be the team's best backup plan in the pivot.
