Buffalo Bills

Bills sign five, including tight end Lee Smith, and release two


The Buffalo Bills added even more competition to their roster at tight end Monday by signing Lee Smith to a three-year contract.


His addition gives the Bills six tight ends on the 90-man roster, as he joins Tyler Kroft, Jason Croom, Dawson Knox, Tommy Sweeney and Moral Stephens, who participated in this past weekend's rookie minicamp and signed Monday.


Kroft, who signed a three-year deal at the start of free agency, is scheduled to count nearly $5 million against the 2019 salary cap, so he is also a safe bet to make the team.


If it's four, the last spot will likely come down to Sweeney, who was a seventh-round draft pick, and Croom, who played in 15 games last season, making 22 catches for 259 yards and one touchdown.


In addition to Stephens, the Bills also announced they have signed three more players who participated in rookie minicamp on a tryout basis: UAB defensive tackle Quindarius Thagard, East Carolina offensive lineman Garrett McGhin and West Alabama safety Abraham Wallace.


He played guard, center and tackle in his college career, displaying the versatility coach Sean McDermott likes in his players.
