Bills sign Marcus Thigpen, Ryan Groy; release Denarius Moore, Boom Herron

New, comments

Two days after return specialist Marcus Thigpen retweeted every Bills fan clamoring for his return to the team, the Bills added him to their active roster - along with a second-year guard.

The Buffalo Bills made two roster moves on Wednesday - one to try to shore up a clear team weakness, and the other to bolster depth along the offensive line.

Marcus Thigpen was re-signed presumably to handle return duties, where Denarius Moore and Leodis McKelvin have been disappointing in recent weeks. Moore was signed when Thigpen was released earlier this season, and now the two have traded roster spots again, with Moore being released today.

The team also added free agent guard Ryan Groy, a second-year player and former undrafted free agent that spent the 2014 season with the Chicago Bears, where he appeared in four games working for then-Bears coordinator and current Bills line coach Aaron Kromer. His addition adds depth at guard, where starting right guard John Miller is dealing with a high ankle injury. In order to make room for Groy - who was signed off of Tampa Bay's practice squad - the Bills released fourth running back Boom Herron.

Buffalo will be conducting a walkthrough practice today as they begin preparations for a road game against the Kansas City Chiefs on a short work week.
