Buffalo Bills sign CB Jumal Rolle

New, comments

The Bills added another corner to the mix

As first reported by NFL Draft Diamonds, the Buffalo Bills have signed cornerback Jumel Rolle. The team has confirmed the move.

To make room for Rolle on the roster, the Bills have released cornerback Charles James II.

Rolle entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2013, signing on with our very own Buffalo Bills. He was cut that August as the team trimmed its roster to 75 players.

Rolle moved on to play for a few other teams, moving to the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers as a practice squad player before seeing his first action on an active roster as a member of the Houston Texans in 2014. All three of his career interceptions as a Texan, including two in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also played for the Baltimore Ravens.

Rolle tore his achilles tendon in 2016, which caused him to miss the whole season. He signed with the Arizona Cardinals in May 2017. The Cardinals waived him on July 27.

Rolle mostly played special teams to begin his stint with the Texans, so its possible that he will look to make the team by helping in that arena. At 6’ tall and 190 lbs., he brings decent size to the corner position, which is definitely in a state of flux after the Bills traded Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.
