The deal signed by Bills right tackle Erik Pears is worth a total of $9.3 million over the next three years, The News has learned. The extension keeps Pears in the fold through 2014. Pears will get $3.85 million guaranteed in the contract.
"I feel great," Pears said after practice today. "I’ve enjoyed my time here and I’m happy to be here for three more years, I couldn’t be more excited. ... I can’t thank the organization enough for giving me a real opportunity to get in there and show them what I could do. I feel I really took advantage of the offseason and came in prepared to do the job."
