The Buffalo Bills are bringing back a core member of their special teams.
Linebacker Ramon Humber was re-signed Thursday. Humber led the Bills with 12 special-teams tackles in 2016, playing 336 snaps, 73 percent of the team's total. Humber was claimed by the Bills on waivers shortly before the start of the regular season after being released by the New England Patriots.
He started one game on defense, but otherwise played sparingly at linebacker, making 14 tackles.
With Humber re-signing, the Bills have 22 pending unrestricted free agents. Earlier this offseason, the team re-signed safety Colt Anderson, another player who is primarily a contributor on special teams.
