Bills add Dickerson, cut QB Corp
With rookie mini-camp wrapped up at One Bills Drive over the weekend, the Buffalo Bills have invited two of the players that were in on a tryout to training camp.
The team announced Monday that they have signed tryout players Dorin Dickerson (fullback) and Nick Saenz (safety) to a contract. The team also has added former Mississippi State offensive tackle James Carmon.
The Bills only had one roster spot open, so they also released two players to make room. Former Richmond quarterback Aaron Corp and Mercyhurst safety Ian Wild.
Monmouth College quarterback Alex Tanney who was brought in for a workout over the weekend was not signed by the team, and is no longer affiliated with the Bills in any way at this point in time. Tanney is the Youtube "Trick Shot Quarterback" that went viral.
Here is the information on the three new Bills' players from Monday's press release:
Dickerson entered the NFL as a seventh-round (227th overall) draft pick by Houston in 2010 and saw action in seven games with the Texans. The 6-1, 226-pound Pittsburgh product was released by Houston prior to the 2011 season and sport a portion of the year on the Pittsburgh and New England practice squads.
Saenz (pronounced SIE-nz) joins the Bills as an undrafted free agent from the University of Houston. The 6-0, 195-pound safety recorded 240 tackles (135 solo) in 52 games for the Cougars from 2008-11.
Carmon, a 6-7, 320-pound undrafted free agent from Mississippi State, started 10 of 11 games in 2011 for the Bulldogs.
