ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (April 27, 2006) -- The Buffalo Bills signed free-agent offensive guard Tutan Reyes, a 16-game starter for Carolina last season.
Reyes is likely to compete with incumbent Bennie Anderson and second-year backup Duke Preston for the starting left guard spot.
At 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, the Bills could consider switching the six-year veteran to tackle, where they have needs on both the left and right side.
Reyes was a fifth-round draft pick by the Saints in 2000, spending two seasons in New Orleans before signing with the Carolina Panthers in 2002.
In 2004, he played in 14 games, starting 12 for the Panthers at left and right guard.
