Bills claim one cornerback, release another

The Buffalo Bills are still looking for the right depth at cornerback, where they have been hit by the hamstring injury to starter E.J. Gaines.

Wednesday, they claimed cornerback Lafayette Pitts off waivers from the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Bills also released cornerback Tony McRae, who they acquired off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens Monday.

The Jaguars waived the 5-foot-11, 195-pound Pitts Tuesday. He has 14 games of NFL experience -- mostly on special teams -- with the Jaguars and the Miami Dolphins, who signed him as an undrafted free agent from Pittsburgh last year.

Pitts, who in 51 collegiate starts had 152 tackles and four interceptions, spent time on the Dolphins' active roster and practice squad.
