On Monday, the Buffalo Bills signed free agent veteran tight end J.P. Foschi to bolster their scant depth at the position. On Tuesday, the team continued to bolster its depth, albeit in the form of youth, by adding undrafted rookie free agent Andrew George to the roster.
The 6'5", 249-pound George is a BYU product, where for three years he played second fiddle to Dennis Pitta, a fourth-round draft choice of the Ravens this past April. While Pitta was raking in 204 receptions and 19 touchdowns over the last three seasons, George was quietly adding 70 receptions and 11 touchdowns in the same time frame.
George joins Foschi and Jonathan Stupar as the healthy tight ends on Buffalo's roster (which still has two open slots should they choose to add more depth). Derek Schouman is dealing with a knee injury that should keep him out 3-6 weeks, and Shawn Nelson has a pulled muscle and was suspended for the first four games of the regular season. The team waived/injured veteran Michael Matthews on Friday night.
The Bills break training camp this morning at St. John Fisher College; they'll head back to Orchard Park to continue preparations for Saturday's penultimate pre-season game against Cincinnati.
