Bills add to receiver depth by signing Jeremy Butler

The Buffalo Bills continue to add depth at wide receiver.

On Monday, they signed free agent Jeremy Butler, a third-year NFL veteran who spent the last two seasons with the Chargers, Jets, Tampa Bay, and Baltimore.

The 6-foot-2, 213-pound Butler began his career in 2015 with the Ravens, who signed him as an undrafted free agent from the University of Tennessee Martin. He appeared in eight games as a rookie, catching 31 passes for 363 yards, including a long of 41.

After being released by the Ravens early last September, Butler joined the practice squad of the Buccaneers and spent five days on their active roster with no game appearances. He then hooked on with the Jets, but didn't play for them, either.

Butler's only game action last season came with the Chargers, who had him in their lineup for four contests. He caught two passes for 11 yards.

Butler is the second free-agent receiver the Bills acquired in the last two days. On Sunday, they signed Philly Brown, formerly of the Carolina Panthers.

That gives the Bills a total of six receivers on their roster. The others are Sammy Watkins, Dezmin Lewis, Walter Powell, and Kolby Listenbee.
