ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Free agent Josh Scobey signed with the
Bills on Thursday, providing Buffalo depth at running back and
special teams.

Scobey is a five-year NFL veteran who appeared in 12 games last
season with Seattle before breaking his arm against Denver on Dec.
3. He played mostly on special teams, returning 17 kickoffs for 315
yards and adding 12 special teams tackles.

Scobey played two seasons with Seattle after spending his first
three with Arizona, which selected him in the sixth round of the
2002 draft. He has had limited action at running back, getting 27
carries for 89 yards rushing, all in 2004 with the Cardinals.

The Bills value Scobey's special teams ability. He will also
compete for a backup running back spot in Buffalo behind
first-round draft pick Marshawn Lynch, who was selected 12th
overall in Saturday's draft, and veteran backup Anthony Thomas.
