The Buffalo Bills announced a flurry of roster moves Tuesday morning, one of which we already knew thanks to the player himself. Guard Isaac Asiata signed with the Bills, and his agent tweeted that out Monday night. Now, we know the rest of the team’s moves.

The Bills officially announced the Asiata signing, and they also signed defensive back Abraham Wallace. Wallace comes to the Bills as an undrafted free agent. He had previously signed with the club after a rookie tryout in May, but injuries at the tight end position forced Buffalo to release him in order to sign depth there.

Clearly the Bills like the former LSU safety, who finished his collegiate career in 2018 at West Alabama. He made 60 tackles in 2018, adding two interceptions, half a sack, and one forced fumble. While at LSU, Wallace was a teammate of Tre’Davious White.

The Bills also announced that they released wide receiver Da’Mari Scott. Scott, 23, finished the 2018 season as a member of the Bills after beginning the year with the Cleveland Browns. He appeared in three games with the Bills and did not accumulate any statistics.

Offensive lineman Jeremiah Sirles was placed on injured reserve due to a foot injury, making room for Asiata on the 91-man roster. Sirles came to Buffalo from the Carolina Panthers last season after spending the previous three years with Minnesota Vikings. He immediately slotted in as the team’s swing tackle-slash-sixth offensive lineman. With all the additions to the line this offseason, Sirles faced an uphill climb to make the team again, but his versatility is something that the Bills’ brass covets in its offensive linemen. His wife gave birth to their first child, Oliver Clyde, on Saturday.
