The Bills made their signing of former first round pick Reggie Bush official today. Bush is reportedly signed to a one year deal that contains special teams related incentives, per Vic Carucci at The Buffalo News:
If Bush passes #Bills physical & decides to sign, I'm told it would be 1 yr deal worth up to $3M w incentives mainly tied to special teams.— Vic Carucci (@viccarucci) August 1, 2016
The full set of transactions on the day featured another couple of players. Also joining the roster is Kain Colter, a Northwestern product. Colter's claim to fame is as one of the college students who attempted to unionize athletes and took a lawsuit (unsuccessfully) to the NCAA. A quarterback and running back for Northwestern, Colter's best college season came in 2012 when he threw 8 touchdowns and rushed 179 times for 894 yards and 12 touchdowns. The Bills are designating the 6'1" 200 pounder as a receiver on their roster.
To sign the two players, the Bills cut two off the roster:

One of those was Marshall Morgan, who was the main competition to incumbent kicker Dan Carpenter. The other was Allen, an athletic receiver who joined Buffalo as an undrafted free agent after this year's draft.
