Bills bring back Bryan Scott

A few hours before the start of the free-agency period, the Buffalo Bills have kept one of their own from hitting the market.

ScottScottESPN's John Clayton reports the Bills have re-signed Bryan Scott, who started at safety and linebacker for them last year. An unnamed source informed Clayton the deal is for two years and more than $3 million.

Scott started Buffalo's first three games at strong safety. He missed five games with a twisted ankle and lost his job to George Wilson. But with the Bills ravaged by injuries, he started six games at linebacker. He sat out the final two games with a concussion.

Scott played in only nine games yet finished third on the Bills with 78 tackles, a stat the reflects more on the depleted defense than it does on Scott. He had two sacks, three tackles for losses and one interception.
