Bills activate LB Johnson, sign a CB
For the second straight day, the Buffalo Bills have made moves on their roster. On Thursday the team brought in a reserve offensive lineman to help out in camp while releasing cornerback Brandon Smith. Just hours before their Friday evening practice, the Bills replenished the cornerback position.
The team announced that they've come to terms with free agent cornerback Bobby Felder. A former undrafted free agent out of Nicholls State in 2012, Felder spent the past two seasons on a practice squad. During his rookie season, he was with the Minnesota Vikings practice unit. He then signed on with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the same role in 2013.
To make room for Felder on the roster, the Bills released defensive tackle Colby Way from the team. An undrafted free agent out of the University at Buffalo, Way signed with the team shortly after the 2014 NFL Draft. He was likely made expendable with the signing of defensive tackle Landon Cohen earlier in the week.
The Bills removed one more off their non-participation list for training camp. Seventh-round pick and rookie linebacker Randell Johnson started camp on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list but has now been cleared by the medical staff and will resume practice with his teammates.
All that remains on the team's non-participation lists are left tackle Cordy Glenn (Active/Non-Football Illness) and linebacker Kiko Alonso (Active/Non-Football Injury). The Bills resume practice Friday night at 6 pm at St. John Fisher College.
