The Buffalo Bills and defensive tackle Alan Branch have agreed to a deal, the team announced Tuesday. CBSSports.com's NFL insider Jason La Canfora reports the contract is for one-year, worth $3 million with the possibility of Branch earning more with incentives.

Branch, 28, spent the last two seasons with the Seahawks after being chosen in the second round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Cardinals. He started 31 games for Seattle, compiling 64 total tackles and four sacks.

"Buffalo intrigued me a lot. ... My aggressive style is similar to theirs," Branch said. "I feel they had me in mind from the beginning. ... This is perfect for me."

Branch (6-6, 325) will add some bulk to a defensive line in Buffalo that was 31st in the league against the run last season.
