Buffalo Bills add CB Lafayette Pitts, release CB Tony McRae

The Bills have added a former Jacksonville CB to the secondary

Given the injuries surrounding the Buffalo Bills secondary, the team's front office decided to go out and upgrade at the position. On Wednesday, the team announced that they have signed cornerback Lafayette Pitts and released cornerback Tony McRae.

Pitts is in his second year in the NFL, and Buffalo is his third stop on his professional journey. Pitts was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Miami Dolphins last season before eventually being signed to their practice squad. Pitts was a member of the Dolphins active roster for the last two months of the NFL season.

Pitts then headed to the Jacksonville Jaguars after being waived by Miami. Jacksonville waived Pitts October 24th.

Pitts has three career tackles in the NFL, one of which came two weeks ago against the Los Angeles Rams. Pitts was brought in to add depth to the secondary in case of any more injuries to the starters. The Bills were left with no reserve corners last weekend after some injuries.

McRae was only on the team for a day.
