Bills sign veteran offensive lineman Fernando Velasco

The Buffalo Bills added some veteran depth to the offensive line Thursday, agreeing to a contract with Fernando Velasco.

The 31-year-old Velasco spent the past two seasons with the Carolina Panthers, making eight starts in 27 games. He's played a total of 83 games with 38 starts in his seven-year career, which began with Tennessee and also included one season with Pittsburgh.

A former undrafted free agent, Velasco started all 16 games at center for the Titans in 2012, then started 11 games with the Steelers the following season. He also has experience playing guard. Velasco figures to compete for the reserve spot along the Bills' offensive line that was occupied last season by Kraig Urbik.
