Peters Gets Contract Extension
Peters Gets Five Year Deal: The contract extension signed by Jason Peters is reportedly for five years which will keep him with the team through 2011. He does have one year on top of the extension because of the tender he signed this offseason. Peters told the Buffalo News it is a good feeling knowing he will be with the organization. Financial terms were still not available.

Peters Signs Extension: The Bills announced today that they have signed OT Jason Peters to an extension. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Peters was an exclusive rights free agent who had signed his one year tender worth $425,000. He was an undrafted free agent tight end that has converted to tackle and he starts on the right side. He has tremendous upside so locking him up long term was a solid move by the team.
Backers Can Get Tickets Today: Bills Backers can get individual game tickets starting today at the Bills official website. General individual game tickets go on sale tomorrow morning at 9 online at buffalobills.com and ticketmaster locations or at ticketmaster.com.

Nickel Back Spot: While it is a foregone conclusion that Nate Clements and Terrence McGee will hold on to the starting cornerback spots, the question remains who will be the third corner used against the slot receiver on passing downs. The battle for the nickel back spot appears to be a three way battle. Jabari Greer and Eric King battled back and forth for that spot last year, splitting time. They will be joined in this year's competition by third round pick Ashton Youboty. King is a former fourth round pick who was thought of highly by the old regime and has talent. Greer is an overachiever who practices well but doesn't always perform that way in games. Youboty is the new regimes choice. When the season starts look for King or Greer to temporarily hold down the nickel spot but Youboty to take it over sooner rather than later. Who do you think will win the job?

Kelsay Looking Smaller: One position that doesn't appear to have a battle going on is left defensive end. It is assumed that Chris Kelsay will hold on to the starting job but as always Ryan Denney is nipping at his heels. Kelsay has lost some weight as he looks to regain some quickness he lost when he gained weight for the previous defensive scheme. Not he expects to fly to the ball. The new regime seems to like Denny who they gave a multi year contract to in the offseason so he will continue to push Kelsay for the job. Who do you think will win the job?
