Naaman Roosevelt back with the Bills

A native of Buffalo and former training camp mainstay is back with the Bills organization. The team announced shortly before the start of their second practice of the summer that wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt has been re-signed by the organization.

Roosevelt originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of the University at Buffalo, spending two whole seasons with the Bills until his release in 2012. He then hooked on with the Cleveland Browns on the practice squad, then with the Detroit Lions' practice squad in 2013. The Lions recently released the graduate of St. Joseph's Collegiate Institute.

Roosevelt will be joined on the roster by former seventh-round pick and defensive tackle Landon Cohen. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Cohen played with both the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears last season and has eight career starts since entering the league in 2008. He was added likely as a result of the Bills being without both Marcell Dareus and Alan Branch (Active/Non-Football Injury) to start camp.

To make room on the roster, the Bills have released wide receiver Ramses Barden and linebacker Nathan Williams. The roster remains at 90 players with the transactions.
