The Buffalo Bills announced the signings of three more practice squad players on Monday morning, bringing their total to the league-maximum of eight names. New to the squad are running back Ronnie Wingo, offensive lineman Edawn Coughman and cornerback Johnny Adams.

Wingo, a rookie undrafted free agent out of Arkansas, was a signing reported yesterday. We discussed his signing in this thread.

Coughman is an undrafted free agent, circa 2011, that played collegiately at Shaw. He spent some time in the CFL, and was also in NFL camps with Seattle and, most recently, Dallas. The 6'4", 305-pound Coughman is light enough on his feet to have received an extended audition at tackle at the NFL level, but may be a better fit inside at guard due to his size.

Adams is a rookie undrafted free agent out of Michigan State, and spent training camp this summer with Indianapolis. A smaller player, the 5'10", 185-pound Adams is nonetheless a speedy athlete, putting up a 4.43-second 40-yard dash at the Combine this past February. He gives the Bills a seventh cornerback in the facility in the event that injuries occur beyond the current one to starter Stephon Gilmore.

The full practice squad is listed below. Buffalo's active roster still stands at just 51 players; you can keep constant track of the roster comings and goings on our depth chart page or in this StoryStream.
