PITTSFORD, N.Y. (WIVB) - Naaman Roosevelt is once again a Buffalo Bill. The former St. Joe’s and UB star signed with the Bills Monday, then hit the field for practice wearing #13.

“Just get in your mind, that you got to come here and learn everything all over again. I think it’s definitely going to be a lot of fun,” said Roosevelt.

Roosevelt played with the Bills earlier in his career, catching 25 passes for 396 yards and 1 TD, but says he was surprised for them to come calling again.

“I definitely was, yeah,” said Roosevelt. “When my agent called me and told me Buffalo contacted him, I was definitely surprised, but definitely excited too, at same time.”

The Detroit Lions released Roosevelt Saturday, and he went through waivers unclaimed.

The Bills also signed defensive tackle Landon Cohen, and released WR Ramses Barden and LB Nathan Williams.
