Just prior to training camp practice No. 14 at St. John Fisher College, the Buffalo Bills announced the signing of free agent outside linebacker Jamaal Westerman.

The former undrafted free agent out of Rutgers spent his first three seasons in the NFL with the New York Jets, where he was coached up by none other than current Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine. A familiarity with the defensive system should help the 6'3", 265-pound pass rusher assimilate quickly to his new surroundings.

Westerman, 28, accumulated 3.5 sacks as a sub-package player with the Jets in 2011 before leaving the team. He spent part of training camp in 2012 with Miami, but was released, landing with Arizona. When Arizona released him, he wound up with Indianapolis, where he played on special teams for them during the playoffs.

As you can see below, Westerman is dressed and ready to participate in his first Bills training camp practice tonight. We'll be using this thread for live updates from tonight's penultimate evening session.
