Bills re-sign TE Klopfenstein, who joined team in mid-season

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills re-signed tight end Joe Klopfenstein on Thursday, one week after allowing him to become a free agent.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed.

Klopfenstein was active in four games with the Bills last season and had one catch for 11 yards. He's a four-year NFL veteran who initially signed with the Bills in November after Derek Fine sustained a season-ending knee injury.

Klopfenstein previously played three seasons with the St. Louis Rams before being released in September. St. Louis selected him in the second round of the 2006 draft out of Colorado.

Klopfenstein has 38 starts in 49 career games, and he has 34 receptions for 397 yards and two touchdowns.
