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.
The Eagles have gotten down to 53, making some notable cuts to get there. The team released guard/center Stefen Wisniewski, who they re-signed to a $1.5MM deal back in May. He had gotten $150K guaranteed, so Philly will eat that. Wisniewski had started at least six games in each of the past three seasons for the Eagles.
To help thin out their crowded running backs room, they got rid of a few well-known names. They waived Josh Adams, who rushed for 511 yards for them last year, as well as 2017 fourth-round pick Donnel Pumphrey, who has battled injuries ever since entering the league. They also cut Wendell Smallwood, who had 364 yards rushing and three touchdowns and another 230 yards and two touchdowns through the air last year.
