Snow Signs With Buffalo

David Snow was arguably the Longhorns' best blocker in 2011, earning some first-team All-Big 12 honors. Now, that skill has earned him a free agent contract with the Buffalo Bills, which he signed Sunday.

"It feels great," Snow said. "It's funny: when I was a child, me and my dad used to watch football games and some of the best ones in my childhood were watching the Bills play in the snow. So it's kind of cool to get the opportunity to possibly do that. My last name is Snow, so it's going to be good.

"I like their team. We have [former Longhorns CB] A.J. [Aaron] Williams playing for them, and they are just on the cusp. And I think they are going to be extremely good next year and the year after, and I am just really excited to be a part of it."

Snow started at all three interior positions in his Longhorn career, with 14 starts at center, 13 at left guard and five at right guard. All 13 of those left guard starts occurred in 2011, when he was named first-team All-Big 12 by the Houston Chronicle and San Antonio Express-News and second-team All-Big 12 by the Associated Press.

"David Snow is a very smart young man," said Texas coach Mack Brown. "He played four years for us. He played just about every position. He played a lot at center and both guards. And he's a guy with his versatility can really help an NFL team."
