BDC 9/03: Bills Add Five to Practice Squad

Posted by Bills Daily Charge on September 3, 2012 – 9:56 am


DAILY REPORT

–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has signed the following five players to the Practice Squad: WR Kamar Aiken, WR Marcus Easley, DT Jarron Gilbert, DB Isaiah Green, and C David Snow.

–The Buffalo Bills released the following 21 players on Friday: WR Kamar Aiken, WR Derek Hagan, OL Mark Asper, DT Kellen Heard, TE Kevin Brock, WR Ruvell Martin, RB Zach Brown, LB Scott McKillop, LB Tank Carder, P Shawn Powell, OL James Carmon, WR Naaman Roosevelt, WR Marcus Easley, DB Nick Saenz, DE Robert Eddins, OL David Snow, DT Dwan Edwards, RB Johnny White, DT Jarron Gilbert, OL Keith Williams, and DB Isaiah Green. The Bills also announced that the team has placed OL Zebrie Sanders on Injured Reserve. Buffalo’s roster now stands at the mandatory 53 players.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills Head Coach Chan Gailey
On his thoughts on the New York Jets:
“They create a lot of problems defensively because of their multiple blitz packages. Their offense, they have added the (Tim) Tebow package so you have to spend time doing that. You do not know exactly what it is, you have an idea, but you do not know exactly what it is. So there are a lot of unknowns going into our first ball game. I think probably the things that we know the most about are their defense and their kicking game because they have the same people there.”

PHOTO OF THE DAY

Bills RB Fred Jackson and C Eric Wood got a chance to talk with ESPN personality Chris Berman during the ‘Kickoff at the Ralph’ event on Friday night at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Berman was the master of ceremonies for the event which was presented by New Era Cap Company. All proceeds went to benefit the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation.
