ORCHARD PARK, NY (WIVB) - Naaman Roosevelt still has no need for a moving van. The Buffalo native is staying in town to join the Bills practice squad. The Bills confirmed the move later on Sunday. He is one of four players added to that unit.
The wide receiver from U.B. was cut by the Bills on Saturday. He had a solid preseason but lost out when the team kept two other rookie receivers, David Nelson and Donald Jones.
Roosevelt, who played high school football at St. Joe's, will be able to practice with the Bills but is not eligible to play unless he's elevated to the 53 man roster Practice squad players earn $5,200 dollars a week.
The Bills also signed RB Joique Bell, FB Rodney Ferguson and OL Jason Watkins to the practice squad, leaving four spots still open.
Fellow U.B. grad and Roosevelt's former teammate Mike Newton earned a spot on the Colts practice squad. He was also released on Saturday.
