Bills Cut Rico Gafford, Joey Ivie 

The Bills have made a handful of moves in advance of Saturday night’s preseason tilt. The club activated wide receivers Cole Beasley and Gabriel Davis, plus defensive tackles Star Lotulelei and Vernon Butler from the Reserve/COVID-19 list. To make room, they’ve waived receiver Rico Gafford and defensive tackle Joey Ivie while placing DT Treyvon Hester on injured reserve.

The Bills claimed Gafford and Ivie just a few days ago. Before that, Gafford was on the Cardinals’ training camp roster and had spent three seasons with the Raiders. Gafford, a cornerback-turned-wide receiver out of Wyoming, has dressed for a total of eight games as a pro.

Ivie, meanwhile, came from the Colts. He’s also had stops with the Browns, Titans, Chiefs, Seahawks, Falcons, and Cowboys. Now, he could be on the verge of his eighth NFL team.

Hester, 29 in September, was pushing to support the Bills’ talented defensive line. To date, he’s got 41 career appearances for the Raiders, Eagles, and WFT. Unfortunately, his ailing back will keep him off the field for the time being.

Indianapolis Colts

Jacksonville Jaguars

New England Patriots

New York Giants

  • Claimed off waivers from Dolphins: OL Ross Reynolds

Hundley is the biggest signing on this list. The Colts adding him is a pretty good sign they expect Carson Wentz to miss some significant time. Assuming Wentz misses games, Hundley will battle it out with second-year pro Jacob Eason.

A couple of kickers who have started a bunch of games both found themselves sent packing in Ficken and Rosas. Mannion latched on with the Seahawks. He’s familiar with new Seattle OC Shane Waldron from their time together with the Rams, explaining why the Seahawks added him as an option behind Russell Wilson.
