Bills sign offensive lineman Peters to extension

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills signed offensive
right tackle Jason Peters to a contract extension on Friday. Terms
of the deal were not immediately available.

Now entering his third NFL season, Peters was originally signed
by the team as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas before the
2004 season. During his first two years with the Bills, Peters has
played tight end and special teams before permanently supplanting
former No. 1 pick Mike Williams at right tackle last year, starting
the final nine games.

Because of Peters' solid play, Williams was then tried at left
guard, but that experiment failed. Williams was released by the
team in February, and has since signed with Jacksonville.

Peters has registered two touchdowns in his career. He caught
quarterback J.P. Losman's first career touchdown pass in the 2005
season opener against Houston, and recovered a punt that he blocked
himself in the end zone against Cincinnati in 2004.
