Former Dallas Cowboys’ running back Tashard Choice is returning to the Buffalo Bills, the team’s official website reported over the weekend.
Choice spent six, injury-hampered games with Dallas to begin the 2011 season before being cut by the team. Washington picked him up off waivers, but Choice spent just one, very quiet game with the Redskins--which happened to come against the Cowboys--before he was cut again.
Finally, on November 23, Choice landed in Buffalo where he played six games, picking up 70 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. He will most likely return to a similarly limited role with Buffalo in 2012, as he looks for carries behind Bills’ running backs Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller.
Selected by Dallas in the fourth round in 2008, Choice played in all 16 games over his first three seasons with the team, but the Georgia Tech product could never manage to find a niche with the team. Over 61 career games played to this point, Choice has rushed for 1,216 yards and nine touchdowns on 270 carries.
