Urbik was claimed off waivers on September 5, 2010.

Urbik was slated to start at right guard for them in 2012.[10] The Bills signed Urbik to a four-year contract extension which locks him up through 2016 and is worth $13.3 million, including a $3.5 million signing bonus for the 2012 season.[11]

Urbik agreed to a pay cut in an effort to stay with the team on March 17, 2015.[12]

Miami Dolphins[edit]

On March 22, 2016, Urbik signed with the Miami Dolphins.[13]

He entered training camp competing with Dallas Thomas, Billy Turner, Jermon Bushrod, and Laremy Tunsil for the starting offensive guard positions. Urbik was named the Dolphins' third-string right guard and center to begin the season.[14]

On September 29, 2016, Urbik had his first start of the season during a 7–22 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. On December 17, 2016, he received his first start at center against the New York Jets after Mike Pouncey was placed on injured-reserve for the remainder of the season on December 13, 2016.[15]
