Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, citing sports agent Ralph Cindrich as his source, is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with free agent tight end J.P. Foschi. The Bills have confirmed the move.
Foschi has spent time with five NFL teams since entering the league in 2004, most recently with Cincinnati, where he caught 27 passes for 260 yards and two scores just a year ago. The 6'3", 265-pound Foschi is a Georgia Tech alum, where he spent two years playing for Bills head coach Chan Gailey.
Prior to the signing, Buffalo had just one healthy tight end on the roster in first-teamer Jonathan Stupar. Derek Schouman is out 3-6 weeks with a right knee injury. Michael Matthews, another Georgia Tech alum, left practice Sunday night with an undisclosed injury. Shawn Nelson was suspended for the first four games of the season last week.
The Bills did not need to make a roster move to get Foschi on board, but did so anyway, parting ways with cornerback John Destin and the injured Matthews. Buffalo's roster now stands 77 deep.
