ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - The Buffalo Bills made a couple roster moves Wednesday, with training camp set to begin next week. The team signed linebacker Stevenson Sylvester and released tight end Mike Caussin.
Sylvester, a former Steelers 5th round draft pick, played 50 games for Pittsburgh over the last four seasons. He has special teams experience, which Bills head coach Doug Marrone has emphasized this offseason. The 6-2, 231 pound linebacker played his college ball at Utah.
Caussin spent the bulk of his time with the Bills battling injuries, and would have been fighting an uphill battle for a roster spot, with Tony Moeaki, Scott Chandler, Lee Smith, and Chris Gragg all on the roster as well.
The Bills also placed CB Leodis McKelvin and LB Randell Johnson on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list. OT Cordy Glenn and DT Alan Branch are both on the Active/Non-Football Illness list. LB Kiko Alonso, who will likely miss the season with a knee injury, is on the Active/Non-Football Injury list.
