After a gruesome injury towards the end of the season where he fractured and dislocated his ankle, Buffalo Bills’ running back Travaris Cadet agreed to a one-year deal with the team, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Over the course of the 2017 season, he turned into a steady hand to come in as the third running back for the Bills. He had 23 carries all of last season for a total of 96 yards and added 16 receptions for 119 yards.

Cadet has made tremendous progress with his injury and has been running at full speed just months after getting surgery on his ankle.

With the signing of Chris Ivory, Cadet most likely won't get many carries, much like last year. He will, however, be a reliable third option for the Bills. Cadet is versatile, athletic and sneakily powerful with the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

The 29-year old will be entering his 7th NFL season.
