Bills sign former Steelers OG Doug Legursky

New, comments

In an odd twist of fate, the Bills cut Greg Lloyd, Jr., the son of the former Steelers great Greg Lloyd, Sr., to make room for the interior lineman.

The Bills announced Wednesday they had signed veteran free agent offensive lineman Doug Legursky to a contract, and indicated he could compete for their open left guard position.

"There's just a vibe they have here," Legursky said. "They have an electricity here. They're an amped up coaching staff. I really think they're going to do well and I'm just glad to be a part of it and part of an organization that trusts me. They brought me in and hopefully they'll lead us to a championship."

Legursky joins another former Steelers offensive linemen, Chris Scott, the team's fifth round draft pick in 2010. He was cut by the team in 2011 and signed with the Bills last season.

Buffalo is becoming something of a refugee location for former Steelers - "Steelers Northeast, perhaps. Along with Legursky and Scott, the Bills have recently signed former Steelers castoffs CB Crezdon Butler, DT Corbin Bryant, FB Frank Summers and OGs Kraig Urbik and Keith Williams.

It's just not for the offspring of former Steelers. Greg Lloyd, the son of the Steelers legend with the same name, was released to make room for Legursky.
