BUFFALO,N.Y. (WIVB) The Bills announced two roster moves Friday. The team said that safety Rafael Bush has retired from the NFL and was placed on the retired/reserve list. The Bills also announced the signing of veteran safety Kurt Coleman to a one-year deal.

The 31-year old Coleman spent the 2018 season with the New Orleans Saints after 4 years with the Carolina Panthers, a year with the Kansas City Chiefs and starting the first four years of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Coleman has collected 21 interceptions in his 9-year NFL career. He enjoyed his most successful season with the Panthers in 2016 when he started 15 games, collecting 95 tackles, 1 sack, 7 passes defended and 4 interceptions.

No reason was given by the Bills for Bush’s retirement, with the announcement coming just 6 days before the start of training camp.
