Bills add 2 at positions with uncertainty

sawyer-ellis-storyThe Bills two reserve future signings Wednesday were made at positions that have questions heading into the 2013 season.

Buffalo signed TE Joe Sawyer and FS Dominique Ellis. Sawyer, a former undrafted signing of the Green Bay Packers in 2010. He’s since worked out for Oakland and San Francisco this past year. He played his college ball at Southwestern Oklahoma St. He’s 6’3″ 270 and is 26-years old. He’s got some athleticism as evidenced by this YouTube video of one of his workouts, which includes some pass catching work.

The reason the tight end position is a question mark heading into next season is because it’s uncertain as to whether Scott Chandler will be ready for the start of the regular season. He just had surgery to repair a torn ACL last week. Knowing rehab is typically 8-9 months it’s almost certain he won’t be participating in training camp. That leaves Buffalo with Lee Smith and Dorin Dickerson at the position from the 2012 roster. Mike Caussin was on I-R.

Meanwhile Dominique Ellis out of South Carolina State, was an undrafted free agent with the Chiefs last season. He played free safety in college and has 4.55 speed. Free safety is another position that has some uncertainty knowing Jairus Byrd is set to become an unrestricted free agent in mid-March.
