Buffalo Bills sign three including Baccari Rambo

New, comments

Rambo was one of three players signed on Tuesday.

Meet the new safety depth, same as the old safety depth. On Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills added Baccari Rambo to what was (and is?) a perilously thin safety group.

Rambo is a former member of the Bills, having been part of the team in 2014 and 2015. In 19 games with the Bills, he intercepted 3 passes, had 8 passes defensed, and made 60 tackles.

In addition to Rambo, the team also added linebacker Sam Barrington and guard Karim Barton. Barrington was a seventh-round draft choice of the Green Bay Packers in 2013. He was a backup in Kansas City and New Orleans last season.

Barton has bounced around on multiple practice squads during his NFL career, spending time with the Philadelphia Eagles, Cleveland Browns, Houston Texans, and Tennessee Titans since entering the league in 2014.

To make room for the three newcomers, center Patrick Lewis and linebacker Anthony Harrell were released. We rated Lewis as one of the worst salary cap values on the Bills’ roster, and his release saves the team $1.2 million. Harrell was little more than a depth piece—we profiled him in our 90 players in 90 days series earlier in the offseason.

The Bills’ roster now stands at 90 players as training camp approaches. (Anquan Boldin remains unsigned.)
