The Buffalo Bills have addressed depth needs by signing cornerback Phillip Gaines and receiver Kaelin Clay.
Gaines spent the past four seasons with Kansas City Kurt Coleman Jersey , where he had one interception and two forced fumbles in 41 games, including 16 starts. He was the Chiefs' third-round pick in the 2014 draft out of Rice.
He finished last season on injured reserve with a dislocated elbow. Gaines will compete for a backup spot behind starters Tre'Davious White and veteran free-agent addition Vontae Davis.
Clay rejoins the Bills after Buffalo acquired him in a trade that sent cornerback Kevon Seymour to Carolina in September. Clay had one catch for 28 yards in four games before being waived by the Bills. He finished the season in Carolina after the Panthers claimed him.
The Denver Broncos have signed Mark Chapman, a rookie wide receiver from Central Michigan University who was the top overall selection in the 2018 Canadian Football League draft.
Chapman didn’t sign with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and now is taking a longshot at playing in the NFL Danny Amendola Jersey , an opportunity that arose after two receivers failed to report to training camp this week.
Carlos Henderson, a third-round pick out of Louisiana Tech last year, is dealing with a family situation Keenan Robinson Jersey , his agent said, and Jimmy Williams, an undrafted free agent out of East Carolina who received a $10 Grady Jarrett Jersey ,000 bonus, also was placed on the reserve/did not report list.
The Broncos have a dozen receivers on their roster, including incumbent starters Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders and 2018 draft picks DaeSean Hamilton and Courtland Sutton.
With veteran Jordan Taylor returning from offseason hip surgeries Patrick Kerney Jersey , there’s an abundance of receiving talent the likes of which the Broncos haven’t had since Peyton Manning was the one throwing the passes.
Henderson faces a tough task to make the 53-man roster when – and if – he shows up. He missed his rookie season with a thumb injury after an unimpressive training camp and in January was arrested in Louisiana on a marijuana possession charge. He missed much of this year’s offseason program with a lingering hamstring injury that led coach Vance Joseph to call him out.
”He’s got to get back on the field if he wants to make this football team,” Joseph said during the team’s mandatory minicamp last month.
