Buffalo Bills Release TE David Martin, Add CB Terrence Wheatley

With injuries thinning out the cornerback position, the Buffalo Bills needed to make a roster move to boost their numbers at that position. They've done just that Tuesday afternoon, announcing that practice squad cornerback Terrence Wheatley has been added to the active roster.

Wheatley was a second-round draft choice of the New England Patriots in 2008 out of Colorado. After spending two years there and playing in just 11 games, the 5'10", 187-pound corner spent 2010 with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but only appeared in one game. Wheatley was added to Buffalo's practice squad earlier this season. He's now the fifth healthy corner on Buffalo's roster, and may get consideration to play in Week 4 over seventh-round rookie Justin Rogers.

To make room for Wheatley, the Bills released veteran tight end David Martin. Now merely a bit player in Buffalo's wide-open offense, Martin's departure leaves the Bills with just two tight ends - and rookie Lee Smith of Marshall is just as capable in blocking situations as Martin was.
