Bills sign offensive linemen Bodine, Newhouse
The Buffalo Bills bolstered their offensive line by signing center Russell Bodine to a two-year contract and offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse to a one-year deal, the NFL team announced Monday.
Bodine, 25, started all 64 games in his four seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals after being drafted in the fourth round in 2014 out of North Carolina. Only Travis Frederick (80 games) of the Cowboys has a longer active streak of starts at center.
Bodine will compete with Ryan Groy for the starting spot following the retirement of Eric Wood.
Newhouse, 29, was released by the Oakland Raiders last week after starting 14 games last fall. He has started 70 games for four teams, primarily at right tackle.
He broke into the league in 2010 with the Green Bay Packers as a fifth-round selection out of Texas Christian.
