Lattimore will likely to compete for a spot on special teams, as Rodak writes. For his career, Lattimore has appeared in 64 career games (nine starts) and has 68 tackles, two sacks, and one interception to his credit. Lattimore will need to outperform players like Eric Striker, Max Valles, and even Randell Johnson if he wants to make Buffalo’s 53-man cut, Joe Buscaglia of WKBW writes. Buscaglia seems to think that Lattimore can be used for more than special teams, though he will be hard pressed to make the roster if he cannot flash his ability in that area.

In other Bills news, tackle Seantrel Henderson has been cleared to practice and is expected to report to the team today. Henderson started all 16 games in his rookie season in Buffalo, and had started 10 games for the team in 2015 before he was sidelined with Crohn’s disease. Right now, the Bills are using Jordan Mills as their first-team right tackle in practice while hoping that that 2014 second-rounder Cyrus Kouandjio can get back to full health and win the starting job. It remains to be seen how Henderson will fit into that picture.
