The Buffalo Bills announced a four-player roster shuffle on Wednesday. Tackle De’Ondre Welsey and tight end Mik’Quan Deane were added to the team. To make room the Bills released offensive lineman Blake Hance and safety Abraham Wallace.
De’Ondre Wesley actually returns to the Bills after a hiatus with the Indianapolis Colts. Wesley was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Baltimore Ravens in 2015 and reached the active roster for six games. An injury robbed him of his 2016 season and he was waived by the Ravens before the 2017 season. Wesley was on the Bills’ practice squad in 2017 and then the Colts for 2018. The Colts waived Wesley on May 21st.
Mik’Quan Deane was an undrafted free agent from this year’s draft class. The tight end from Western Kentucky played two years, reeling in 55 catches for 673 yards and seven touchdowns. Deane’s signing might be a response to injuries to Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom that occurred during OTAs.
Blake Hance and Abraham Wallace were also undrafted free agents from this year’s class and faced a steep climb to make the roster at their respective positions.
