Kraig Urbik: Calls it quits after nine seasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Urbik announced his retirement from the NFL on Wednesday via a post on his personal Twitter account.

Urbik, a 2009 third-round pick, spent nine years in the NFL with the Steelers, Bills and Dolphins, appearing in 100 regular-season contests (63 starts). The 32-year-old didn't suit up in 2017 after the Dolphins cut him in training camp while he was tending to a knee injury. Urbik noted that his slow recovery from the injury played a factor in his decision to retire, as he didn't believe he was capable of performing at the level he had in previous years.

by R.J. White |

The team lost its top two running backs in Week 7 and turned to Dixon to finish the game.

The Bills also looked to boost the offense line by inserting interior lineman Kraig Urbik into the starting lineup at left guard.

by R.J. White |

Bills coach Doug Marrone is exploring the option of making a change to the starting offensive line in an effort to improve the struggling unit, and inserting Kraig Urbik into the lineup ahead of rookie Cyril Richardson is the most likely move, reports.
