Bills re-sign Safety Bryan Scott


ESPN’s John Clayton has reported that the Buffalo Bills have re-signed unrestricted free agent safety Bryan Scott.  The deal is for two years and is worth a little over $3 million.

The 29-year old out of Penn State, Scott had double-duty with the Bills in 2009, starting at both strong safety and weak side linebacker.  He started the Bills’ first three games at strong safety, but an ankle injury caused him to miss the next five games.  Due to the Bills’ pile up of injuries at the linebacker spot (Kawika Mitchell & Keith Ellison were both lost for the season with injuries), once Scott returned he preceded to start six games at weak-side linebacker.  Scott missed the final two games of the season with a concussion.  In nine games, Scott recorded 81 tackles, two sacks, an interception and a forced fumble.

As the Bills transition to a 3-4 defense under new defensive coordinator George Edwards, Scott is likely to be moved back to strong safety.  Bringing Scott back provides Buffalo with solid depth at the safety position with fellow safeties Donte Whitner, Jairus Byrd and George Wilson.
