Defensive back Jaylen Watkins will sign with The Buffalo Bills' practice squad, a league source confirmed to The Buffalo News on Sunday afternoon.
Watkins is the half-brother of Bills receiver Sammy Watkins. The two have the same father. Sammy Watkins tweeted about Jaylen joining the Bills on Sunday.
Jaylen Watkins was a fourth-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 2014. He played in four games and made three tackles and one pass defensed as a rookie. He was cut by the Eagles on Saturday.
Watkins can play both cornerback and safety, although he spent most of his time at corner with the Eagles. Watkins played collegiately at Florida. He has a good combination of size (5-foot-11, 194 pounds) and speed (4.41-second 40-yard dash at the NFL Scouting Combine).
