2019 NFL Free Agency: Buffalo Bills bolster special teams, sign Senorise Perry

New, comments

Perry, 27, previously played for the Miami Dolphins and Chicago Bears

The Buffalo Bills added to their special-teams corps on Thursday, agreeing to a one-year deal with free agent Senorise Perry.

Perry, 27, a five-year veteran in the NFL, spent the last two-plus seasons with the Miami Dolphins after beginning his career with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted rookie free agent out of the University of Louisville in 2014.

Primarily a special-teams contributor, Perry is a solid return man, as 12 of his 22 career kickoff returns have gone for 20 or more yards.

During the 2017 and 2018 seasons, Perry averaged 20.3 yards per kickoff return on 18 attempts. He also led the Dolphins in special-teams tackles with nine last year.

In his rookie season with the Bears, Perry was a special-teams standout, leading Chicago with 17 special-teams tackles to go with two forced fumbles.

Also a running back, Perry has rushed eight times for 30 yards in his career, all with Miami during the 2017 season.

Perry’s signing represents the fourth move this offseason to bolster a special-teams unit that under-performed in 2018. The Bills also re-signed long snapper Reid Ferguson to a multi-year extension, inked All-Pro return specialist Andre Roberts to a free-agent contract, and re-signed primary gunner Lafayette Pitts.
