The Buffalo Bills are keeping things stable on their offensive line.
The team announced on Monday that guards Kraig Urbik and Chad Rinehart have accepted their restricted free agent tenders and signed contracts to remain with the team.
Originally a third-round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers after his college career at Wisconsin, Urbik has played all 23 of his NFL games for Buffalo. The Bills signed him off waivers from Pittsburgh in 2010, and he played 10 games for the Bills that year before starting 13 games for Buffalo in 2011. He played five games at center in 2011.
Rinehart has also found a home with the Bills after starting his career elsewhere. He was drafted in the third round by Washington in 2008 (96th overall), but played just four games for the Redskins in two years. He landed on the Bills' practice squad for the 2010 season, and was signed to the 53-man roster before season's end. After playing four games for the Bills and starting in three, Rinehart played in all 16 games in 2011, starting 12 of them.
The Bills have now re-signed five of their free agents this off-season, including four on offense, where Urbik and Rinehart join running back Tashard Choice and wide receiver Derek Hagan.
