The Buffalo Bills have re-signed fullback Corey McIntyre to a two-year contract extension, an NFL source has informed ESPN.com. Financial terms aren't yet known.

McIntyre, a pure backfield blocker and special-teamer, would have become an unrestricted free agent at 12:01 a.m.

The Bills signed McIntyre prior to Week 5, cutting Darian Barnes to make room. McIntyre played 11 games. He had zero carries and two receptions for minus-1 yard.

His value was in clearing holes for Pro Bowl running back Marshawn Lynch and backup Fred Jackson.
