Bills keep backup LB, special-teamer DiGiorgio

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills re-signed linebacker and special-teams player John DiGiorgio on Wednesday.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

In six games with the Bills this past season, DiGiorgio finished with six special-teams tackles. He was placed on injured reserve after he tore a ligament in his knee during a punt return in a Week 7 game against the San Diego Chargers.

DiGiorgio had his best NFL season in 2007, when he made 14 starts, including 13 at middle linebacker after rookie Paul Posluszny broke his forearm. DiGiorgio ranked second on the team with a career-high 137 tackles and two sacks that year.

DiGiorgio joined the Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2006 out of Saginaw Valley State.
