Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reports that the Buffalo Bills have re-signed special teams ace and reserve wide receiver Marcus Easley to a four-year deal worth $7 million. He has further details of the deal, as well:

Easley, 27, has been with the Bills since 2010, when the team made him a fourth-round pick out of Connecticut. Although he never really panned out as a receiver, Easley emerged as an outstanding special teams player over the past two seasons, working under coordinator Danny Crossman. The Bills have made a concerted effort to build a quality special teams core over the past two offseasons, and re-signing Easley has been the biggest step in that process.
