Bills' deadline activity limited to release of DT Jay Ross

The least-exciting sports day of the year, otherwise known as NFL trade deadline day, has come and gone, with the Buffalo Bills standing pat.

The Bills opted to keep safety Jairus Byrd today, as the deadline arrived at 4 p.m. The team did make one move, however, by releasing defensive tackle Jay Ross from the 53-man roster.

Ross, 26, has played sparingly in five games for the Bills this season, registering just one tackle. His release leaves the Bills with an opening on their active roster.

The team did fill out its eight-player practice squad by signing wide receiver Cordell Roberson. The 6-foot-4, 205-pounder attended Stephen F. Austin University. He finished as the school's all-time leader in catches (221), receiving yards (3,191) and touchdown catches (39).

He entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Cleveland Browns, but was released prior to the start of the regular season, and also spent time on the Carolina Panthers' practice squad.
