BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills have tendered contracts to three potential free agents, including safety Donte Whitner and linebacker Paul Posluszny.
The moves temporarily secure the players' rights, though it's unclear what their status will be under a new collective bargaining agreement after the current one expires on Thursday night.
Tight end Scott Chandler was also tendered a contract by the Bills on Tuesday.
Whitner completed a five-year contract last season, and questioned whether he'd return to Buffalo after negotiations broke down in December. Posluszny completed a four-year deal and has said he's open to re-signing with the Bills.
Chandler joined the Bills in December after being claimed on waivers from Dallas.
