Bills Confirm Free Agent Signings; Two Roster Spots Open

On Friday evening, after the 6PM deadline in which NFL teams could make free agent signings official, the Buffalo Bills announced a series of roster moves that we'd known about for the past 24-48 hours. Drayton Florence has been officially re-signed, and veteran quarterbacks Tyler Thigpen and Brad Smith (yes, he's a quarterback here) are now officially on the roster. Scott Chandler and Garrison Sanborn signed tender offers, and another undrafted free agent (defensive end Will Topp) was added.

After the latest flurry of roster moves, the Bills now have 88 players on their training camp roster (with two, Cordaro Howard and Reggie Corner, on the PUP list to begin training camp).

That leaves the Bills two roster spots to get up to the league-maximum 90 players, as that has been GM Buddy Nix's goal this week. I'd expect them to be veteran free agent additions, given the fact that the Bills now have 29 rookies on their roster. A little more veteran presence is needed on this football team.

By the way: none of the acquisitions listed above, save Topp, are eligible to practice until August 4, when the new league year begins. So if you're headed out to Fisher today, don't expect to see any shinier new toy than Marcell Dareus.
