ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) Buffalo Bills backup defensive tackle Corbin Bryant has signed his qualifying offer.

Bryant signed on Monday, shortly before the Bills opened their offseason voluntary conditioning program. He was a restricted free agent, whose rights were retained by the Bills last month, when they tendered him a one-year contract.

Entering his fourth NFL season, Bryant proved his value last year in filling after Kyle Williams sustained a season-ending injury in Week 6. Bryant was credited with 45 tackles and six quarterback hits in 16 games, including 10 starts.
