Rhodes agrees to 2-year deal with Bills
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP)—Running back Dominic Rhodes agreed to a two-year contact with the Bills, giving Buffalo an established starter while Marshawn Lynch opens next season serving a three-game suspension.
Rhodes is an eight-year veteran who became a free agent this offseason after spending last year with Indianapolis. The deal was announced Saturday and comes after Rhodes visited the Bills this past week.
The Bills needed to bolster their depth at running back after the NFL last week suspended Lynch without pay for violating the league’s personal conduct policy. Lynch has until next week to appeal.
Rhodes is the latest addition to a revamped offense that will now feature receiver Terrell Owens. Buffalo is also retooling its offensive line after trading Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters to Philadelphia on Friday and releasing left guard Derrick Dockery in February.http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=a ... &type=lgns
Hopefully he doesn't impact Marshawn all that much but he will be one of the guys getting the carries on opening day and have a chance to prove himself.
This also takes competition from Addai. Curious as to what the Colts do here.
