The Buffalo Bills added some depth to their secondary Monday, claiming cornerback Tony McRae off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens.
McRae, 24, has spent the past five games on the Ravens' active roster after being promoted from the practice squad in Week Two. The 5-foot-10, 185-pounder originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Oakland Raiders. He spent last season on the Cincinnati Bengals' practice squad.
The Bills were down to three healthy cornerbacks Sunday after E.J. Gaines went out in the third quarter because of a hamstring injury.
To make room for McRae, the Bills released wide receiver Kaelin Clay. He became expendable when the Bills signed receiver Deonte Thompson to the active roster last week. Thompson had four catches for 107 yards in Sunday's 30-27 win over Tampa Bay.
