Bills sign TE Mundine, cut three players

In addition to Brandon Spikes and David Hawthorne, the Bills signed a second-year tight end and made some moves to accommodate all three players.

Earlier today, the Buffalo Bills filled some depth at linebacker by signing Brandon Spikes and then adding veteran David Hawthorne to the mix.

One more name was added to the roster before the dust settled.

Mundine, 24, spent 2015 on the New England Patriots practice squad. Prior to that, he was a fairly productive player at the University of Kansas under former UB coach Turner Gill and longtime NFL offensive coordinator Charlie Weis (although neither had much success during their time with the Jayhawks). With Jim Dray suffering an injury earlier in the week, tight end was another position that needed to be filled, and it looks like Mundine is going to earn some playing time with the team this preseason.

None of the cuts were very surprising. Chambers was a UDFA pickup this offseason and was near the back of a crowded race for a spot as a depth receiver with the team this year. Arenas was going to have to earn a roster spot as a return man, and the signing of Reggie Bush all but put an end to his chances to make the team in that role. Reddick was actually waived/injured, according to Joe Buscaglia, after suffering a sprain in Friday's camp session. Apparently, he either didn't make much of an impression before that injury, or it was more serious than it seemed. Either way, he won't figure into the Bills plans at linebacker this year, whatever they may be.
