ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills signed offensive right tackle Jason Peters to a contract extension on Friday. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Now entering his third NFL season, Peters was originally signed by the team as an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas before the 2004 season. During his first two years with the Bills, Peters has played tight end and special teams before permanently supplanting former No. 1 pick Mike Williams at right tackle last year, starting the final nine games.

Because of Peters' solid play, Williams was then tried at left guard, but that experiment failed. Williams was released by the team in February, and has since signed with Jacksonville.

Peters has registered two touchdowns in his career. He caught quarterback J.P. Losman's first career touchdown pass in the 2005 season opener against Houston, and recovered a punt that he blocked himself in the end zone against Cincinnati in 2004.
