Buffalo Bills Sign WR David Clowney, LB Scott McKillop, Per Reports

New, comments

Two separate reports that emerged Wednesday evening indicate that the Buffalo Bills have signed (at least) two new players to its roster as the off-season begins.

The agent for free agent wide receiver David Clowney told the Associated Press that his client had signed a contract with the Bills. Clowney, who will turn 27 just prior to the start of training camp this summer, was a fifth-round draft pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2007. He's spent time predominantly with the New York Jets, but also with the Carolina Panthers, and has recorded 22 receptions for 341 yards and a touchdown in his short career.

Aaron Wilson of Scout.com also reports that the Bills signed linebacker Scott McKillop to a reserve/future contract. Also a former fifth-round pick - this time by the San Francisco 49ers in 2009 - McKillop spent his rookie year with the 49ers, but did not make Jim Harbaugh's team this past season. McKillop played collegiately for Dave Wannstedt at Pittsburgh.

Both Clowney (6'0", 187 pounds) and McKillop (6'1", 243 pounds) are talented players that will provide some competition during camp next season. McKillop is particularly intriguing, given that he's at a position (inside linebacker) where the Bills could have a lot of depth turnover this off-season.
