Yesterday, Buffalo Bills coach Chan Gailey said the team would look into adding a wide receiver to the suddenly thin corps. Today the Bills did just that, signing veteran Ruvell Martin.

Martin has been in the league for five years, having spent three seasons with the Green Bay Packers and one year each with the St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks. He has 65 career catches for 1,006 yards and seven touchdowns. Martin fits the mold of tall receivers that Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey have added over the last two years; he is 6'4" and 220 pounds.

After the trade of Lee Evans a week ago, Buffalo lost Roscoe Parrish, Donald JonesNaaman Roosevelt, David Nelson, and Buster Davis to injuries. Nelson and Davis returned to practice today.

Martin will step into Evans' roster spot and number, donning 83 at least for the time being. One more Bills note: Martin went to Saginaw State University with former Bills linebacker John DiGiorgio.
