Buffalo Bills sign Bobby Felder, release Colby Way

Hours before the Bills resume training camp practices on Friday evening, the team made some final adjustments to the back end of their 90-man roster.

The Buffalo Bills made another set of roster moves on Friday, readying their 90-man roster for the next four-day stretch of training camp practices at St. John Fisher.

After Thursday's release of cornerback Brandon Smith, the Bills have replaced him in their defensive backfield with third-year corner Bobby Felder. A 2012 undrafted free agent out of Nicholls State, the 5'10", 195-pound athlete has spent time on the practice squads of both the Minnesota Vikings and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first two years of his career.

In order to make room for Felder on the roster, the Bills released rookie defensive tackle Colby Way, a UB graduate. He was an extreme longshot to make the Bills' final 53-man roster, and the Bills can get away with fewer bodies at his position now that Marcell Dareus and Alan Branch are both cleared to practice.

The Bills also placed rookie linebacker Randell Johnson on the active roster after he spent the first four practices sidelined by injury. That puts the Bills down to just one player (aside, of course, from Kiko Alonso) that is currently out of the lineup: left tackle Cordy Glenn, who remains sidelined by an undisclosed illness.

Here's an unofficial look at the Bills' updated depth chart.
