Bills sign fourth-round pick Wright to deal

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Running back Dwayne Wright, Buffalo's fourth-round draft pick, signed with the Bills on Wednesday in time for the start of training camp.

Selected 111th overall out of Fresno State, Wright finished third in school history with 2,683 yards rushing in 28 games despite missing most of the 2004 and all of the 2005 season with a knee injury.

Most of Wright's production came last season, when he had 1,462 yards rushing and scored 11 of his 16 career touchdowns. He also set a school record with 295 yards rushing against Louisiana Tech last year.

The Bills also released receiver Aaron Brown, an undrafted rookie free agent, who signed with the team in May.

The Bills have yet to sign their top two draft picks, running back Marshawn Lynch and linebacker Paul Posluszny, as the team prepares to open training camp on Thursday in suburban Rochester.

Also missing from camp is veteran defensive tackle Darwin Walker, who has refused to report to the Bills because of a contract dispute after being acquired in a trade that sent linebacker Takeo Spikes to Philadelphia in March. As a condition of the trade, Walker demanded the Bills restructure the two years he has left on his contract.

Negotiations remain at a standstill, and Walker will be sent back to Philadelphia if a deal isn't reached by Aug. 5. Buffalo would then receive a sixth-round draft pick from the Eagles. (Copyright 2007 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.)
