Bills Release 4: To get the roster under the 90 man limit the Bills have released four players. Gone are QB Aaron Corp, T Adam Grant, K Chris Koepplin and TE Joe Sawyer. With the free agent signing of Jeff Tuel the Bills had five quarterbacks which is one more than you need to go to camp with. Front Office Page.
Signings Official: The Bills made it official today, announcing the signing of 16 undrafted free agents. This group is headlined by WR Da'Rick Rogers who was considered among the top players left on the market after the draft. He has high round talent but has had many off the field issues that caused him to transfer from Tennessee to Tennessee Tech. Washington State QB Jeff Tuel is an extra arm for camp and he will compete for the third string job. Undrafted Player Signings.
Bills, Colts Swap LBs: In a very rare NFL player for player trade, the Bills have sent LB Kelvin Sheppard to Indianapolis for LB Jerry Hughes. Sheppard was a third round draft pick in 2011 and would have played inside in the 3-4 defense but didn't seem to be a good fit for Mike Pettine's defense. Hughes is a former first round pick who was a great pass rusher in college gaining 26.5 sacks in his last two seasons at TCU. He had just five sacks in three years with the Colts after being selected 31st overall in 2010. He will likely play on the strongside outside in the 3-4 defense like he did in Inday. The drafting of Kiko Alonso made Sheppard expendable while the drafting of Bjoern Werner by the Colts helped make Hughes expendable. Depth Chart.
Draft Has Speed, Versatility: The new regime in Buffalo definitely put their stamp on the team with their first draft. They went for speed on offense and speed and versatility on defense. For good measure they even drafted a kicker who may take the roster spot of the longest tenured Bill. For all the intrigue with this draft it all comes down to the success or failure of EJ Manuel.
