2008 NFL Offseason: Bills Re-Sign Offensive Lineman Whittle

The Buffalo Bills resigned offensive lineman Jason Whittle yesterday. 

Whittle formerly played for the Giants, Buccaneers, and the Vikings.

The Bills resigned Whittle for a one-year deal for $605,000. 

The Bills signed Whittle last season on the opening day of when the free agent market started, along with starters Langston Walker and Derrick Dockery. 

Whittle was signed to serve as a backup on the line and give some veteran leadership to the O-line. 

Whittle's season ended early last season in week three when he tore his hamstring, he was put on IR after that. 

He looks if he is going to be healthy this season and if any of the Bills lineman go down, he will prove to be a great to step in and to do the job. 

The Bills have a very good offensive line and Whittle just adds even more depth to a great line. 

He can play center and the both guard spots.

The Bills line varies with youngsters to veterans.  The only other backup O-lineman that the Bills have under contract are Kirk Chambers, Nevin McCaskill, Duke Preston, Christian Gaddis, and Patrick Estes. 

Most of these back up linemen are young, and, as mentioned, Whittle does bring veteran experience to the position. 

Whittle looks to get back on track this upcoming season and contribute in anway that he can.
