Bills re-sign defensive tackle Coleman and safety Blanton

The Buffalo Bills Wednesday re-signed defensive tackle Deandre Coleman and safety Robert Blanton.

They filled the spots on the 53-man roster vacated by Tuesday's cuts of safety Trae Elston and linebacker Jelani Jenkins. The Philadelphia Eagles, who have a habit of acquiring former Bills defensive backs, promptly picked up Elston off waivers.

The Bills released the 6-foot-5, 341-pound Coleman after this year's training camp. He joined the Bills' practice squad last year and was promoted to the active roster for the final five games of the regular season.

Blanton also was with the Bills last year, and was with the Dallas Cowboys through the offseason and preseason this year before his release on Sept. 2.
