Bills C Eric Wood mentioned that both he and team are interested in working out a contract extension that will keep him in Buffalo beyond the 2013 season.
“There’s obvious interest from both sides to get a deal done at some point,” Wood said on Wednesday, via WGR 550 Buffalo. “But with a GM change and a big-time free agent at safety that we’d like to get re-signed — and this is just me speculating myself, this isn’t stuff they said — and rookies, I know I’m not top priority right now. Hopefully we can get a deal done at some point, maybe this summer.”
Wood, 27, is entering the final year of his rookie contract. Although he’s performed pretty well in the past, Wood was rated as the No. 25 best center in the league by Pro Football Focus. On top of that, he has missed 17 games in the past four years, so the team may want to see how he does in their new offense before working on an extension.
