Bills practice squad: Jamie Blatnick, Mark Asper among five signings

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Three of the team's Saturday cuts return, as does a former 2012 Bills draft pick and a speedy project receiver from Baltimore.

The Buffalo Bills have announced the names of five additions to their practice squad: quarterback Thaddeus Lewis, wide receiver Tommy Streeter, guard Mark Asper, defensive lineman Izaan Cross and linebacker Jamie Blatnick. The team did not confirm the reported signing of running back Ronnie Wingo, however.

Lewis (link) and Streeter (link) were both reported signings from earlier this afternoon that you can read about at those respective links. Cross and Blatnick were both cut by the team on Saturday; Cross is an undrafted free agent out of Georgia Tech that finished the preseason on a high note, while Blatnick was a player that many (including yours truly) thought was a shoo-in for the 53-man roster based on his strong summer session.

Asper is a name you'll recognize from the team's 2012 NFL Draft class, where he was a sixth-round pick out of Oregon. Buffalo released him last summer with the intention of stashing him on the practice squad, but he was claimed off of waivers by Minnesota. He spent training camp this season down in Jacksonville, and has now come back full circle where the Bills intended to have him all along. Asper worked with the team as a center during Chan Gailey's last training camp, and he gives the team some flexibility behind injured reserve guard/center Doug Legursky.

We'll continue to keep track of the Bills' cutdown weekend roster moves in this StoryStream.
