Bills Sign TE David Martin; Claim OG Kraig Urbik

In a flurry of moves this afternoon, the Buffalo Bills have signed veteran TE David Martin, confirmed via Twitter by Adam Schefter. Martin was recently cut by the Miami Dolphins after spending two seasons with the team. He is an eight-year vet who played six season with Green Bay before playing his last two with the Dolphins. His addition was paved by the Bills' cutting of veteran TE J.P. Foschi earlier today.

In addition, the Bills were awarded OG Kraig Urbik off waivers from the Pittsburgh Steelers (same Schefter tweet). The 2009 third-round draft pick was released by the Steelers on Friday.

Martin will back up Jonathan Stupar at tight end. Urbik becomes the ninth offensive lineman the team employs, joining undrafted rookie Cordaro Howard as interior line depth. To make room for Urbik, the Bills released undrafted free agent safety Dominique Harris.

The Bills also added OL Jason Watkins and FB Rodney Ferguson to the practice squad, as they join Naaman Roosevelt and Joique Bell. Buffalo still has four spots remaining on their practice squad, and may not yet be done wheeling and dealing.
