The Buffalo Bills were busy making roster moves Monday. Topping that list was the return of tight end Lee Smith.

Smith was cut by the Oakland last week after 4 years with the Raiders. Smith played for the Bills from 2011-2014.  Smith’s deal with the Bills is for 3-years.

Smith is primarily known as a blocker and in 8 NFL seasons has 56 catches for 392 yards and 7 touchdowns.

In other roster moves, the Bills signed 4 players who tried out in last weekend’s rookie minicamp, to contracts.

Those players are offensive lineman Garrett McGhin from East Carolina, tight end Moral Stephens from Florida, defensive tackle Quindarius Thagard from UAB and safety Abraham Wallace from West Alabama.

To make room for these additions, the Bills cut running back Keith Ford and tight end Jake Fisher.

Ford played in two games for the Bills last season rushing for 79 yards and catching 3 passes for 21 yards.  Fisher was attempting to make the switch from offensive tackle to tight end after he was signed by the Bills in March.
