An undrafted free agent out of Arkansas, Wingo is an intriguing athlete (6'2", 231 pounds, 4.47 speed).

Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun reports that the Buffalo Bills will bring in rookie running back Ronnie Wingo to join their practice squad.

Wingo, an undrafted free agent out of Arkansas (where he was a teammate of Bills tight end Chris Gragg), spent the spring and summer months as a member of the Atlanta Falcons. That team ended up keeping five running backs and a fullback on their final 53-man roster, but Wingo didn't factor into that wide open race much in his first NFL training camp.

Buffalo looked at two bigger rookie backs of their own this summer, but Kendall Gaskins struggled with ball security and Drew Smith landed on Injured Reserve. Wingo is a similar running back, fullback hybrid with a great size (6'2", 231 pounds) and speed (4.47 at the Arkansas pro day) combination. He's the fourth running back on the Bills' roster during practices as a member of the practice squad, and brings a different dimension to the group from an athletic perspective.
