Buffalo Bills Claim OL Sam Young On Waivers

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills have claimed offensive tackle Sam Young on waivers, reports Jason La Canfora of NFL.com.

Young was waived by the Dallas Cowboys on Monday to make room on their roster for free agent signee Derrick Dockery. A sixth-round pick of the Cowboys in the 2010 NFL Draft, Young was a four-year starter at Notre Dame, but spent much of his year-plus in Dallas buried on the depth chart.

The 6'8", 332-pound Young certainly fits the size prerequisite, as Chan Gailey and the Bills have consistently sought out massive offensive linemen with the goal of getting bigger and more physical up front in mind. Young is not, however, an impressive athlete, and because of his height may only be able to get looks at right tackle.

In order to make room on the roster for Young, the Bills released veteran wide receiver Ruvell Martin, who stuck out like a sore thumb in a very young and developing receiving corps.
