Clements signs one-year deal with Bills

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (May 5, 2006) -- Nate Clements re-signed with the Bills, accepting the one-year, $7.2 million contract Buffalo offered the star cornerback after designating him the team's franchise player in February.

The deal was struck in time for Clements to attend the start of a three-day minicamp. Clements, who missed a voluntary minicamp session last month, took the field on May 5.

Buffalo's first-round pick in the 2001 draft, Clements is a five-year starter who leads the team with 20 interceptions, four of which he's returned for touchdowns.

He was a 2004 Pro Bowl selection and considered a key member of a defense that is rebuilding under new coach Dick Jauron.
