Free agent G/T Kraig Urbik is visiting the Dolphins.

Urbik, 30, was cut by the Bills earlier this month after they deemed him unworthy of his $1.775 million cap hit. Urbik can play either guard spot and right tackle. The Dolphins have one of the worst guard situations in the league.
Mar 21 - 8:45 PM

Bills released OL Kraig Urbik.

Urbik appeared to confirm the news on Twitter. The move saves the Bills $1.775 million against the cap. A 16-game starter in 2013, Urbik has settled into a backup role the last two seasons. The 30-year-old should find a home as a utility interior lineman.
Mar 1 - 12:45 PM

Bills.com’s Chris Brown expects OL Kraig Urbik to make the 53-man roster.

Urbik is due $1.2 million after grading out as PFF’s No. 53 guard. His ability to play all three interior spots gives him the clear roster edge over Chris Williams. Urbik and Cyril Richardson are the favorites for backup guard duties.

Kraig Urbik has been taking snaps as the second-team center at Bills OTAs.

Urbik started nine games at left guard last season, but the arrival of Richie Incognito and rookie John Miller has relegated him to a backup role. Taking snaps at center should help Urbik stick on the roster as a swing interior lineman.

Bills LG Kraig Urbik has agreed to a restructured contract.

His base salary for 2015 went from $2.9 million to $1.2 million, so he's taking a pretty sizable pay cut. Urbik's restructure gives Buffalo around $16 million in cap room, not including Percy Harvin's new deal. Guard remains a trouble area for the Bills, though at least Urbik's bloated contract is no longer a burden.

Bills LG Kraig Urbik is expected to start in Week 8 against the Jets.

Urbik will replace rookie Cyril Richardson. The Bills have had some of the worst interior line play in the league this season. Richardson could eventually move back into the starting lineup in place of Erik Pears, who has allowed 11 quarterback hurries through seven games.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the Bills are shopping G Kraig Urbik.

Despite his solid 2013 campaign, Urbik lost his right guard job to former tackle Erik Pears during camp. Urbik is set to count $3.45 million against the Bills cap, but Buffalo could save $2.9 million of that by releasing or trading him. Urbik would find plenty of suitors on the open market if cut.
Fri, Aug 29, 2014 07:49:00 PM

Coach Doug Marrone confirmed the Bills' starting right guard job is up for grabs.

Kraig Urbik is the incumbent, while Chris Hairston is his main competition. Hairston can play any position on the line besides center and is returning after missing all of last season with an undisclosed illness. Urbik is scheduled to count $3.375 million against the cap. He graded out as a top-20 guard at PFF in 2013, receiving positive marks both in the run and pass games. If LT Cordy Glenn is sidelined into the season, Hairston is more likely to fill in there.

The Bills aren't expected to release RG Kraig Urbik.

Urbik is being pushed by Chris Hairston for the starting job, but his roster spot appears safe because of money. Urbik inked a four-year, $15 million extension in December of 2012 and is set to count over $3 million against the cap. The Bills would have to eat $2.1 million of that by cutting him. Urbik and RT Erik Pears were a weak pair on the right side of Buffalo's line last season. Pears' job is in grave danger. Unlike Urbik, he can be released without a dead money hit.

Bills signed RG Kraig Urbik to a four-year, $15 million contract extension.

Urbik was set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, but Buffalo locked up their versatile 27-year-old right guard after he posted back-to-back solid seasons. Urbik has started 24 games over the last two years and grades out as one of Pro Football Focus' top-25 guards for 2012 heading into Week 16. Andy Levitre, Buffalo's left guard, is also eligible for unrestricted free agency after the season. Levitre is going to be a bit more pricey.

Bills RG Kraig Urbik (foot) is listed as questionable on the Week 10 injury report.

Urbik practiced on a limited basis this week and is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Patriots. He missed three games earlier this season due to injury. With Erik Pears (hip, injured reserve) out for the year, Chris Hairston will make his second straight start at right tackle.
Sat, Nov 10, 2012 07:05:00 PM

Bills RG Kraig Urbik is expected to return from his ankle injury in Week 9.

Shelved since Week 4, Urbik used the Week 8 bye to nurse himself back to full health. His return should provide a boost for the Bills' running game.
Mon, Oct 29, 2012 04:04:00 PM

Bills RG Kraig Urbik, LT Cordy Glenn, and RG Chad Rinehart did not participate in Wednesday's practice.

The Bills offensive line has been just ravaged with injuries this season. They're now extremely thin at right guard with Urbik's replacement Colin Brown on I.R., and Rinehart also dealing with a calf injury. The Bills did sign veteran G/T Reggie Wells, who has not played an offensive snap since Week 17 of 2010. The situation is a concern for Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller owners.
Wed, Oct 10, 2012 05:36:00 PM

Bills RG Kraig Urbik has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain.

Coach Chan Gailey expects both Urbik and LT Cordy Glenn (ankle) to miss this week's game against the 49ers' crushing front seven. Urbik is wearing a protective boot and will likely sit out Week 6 at Arizona as well.
