Orchard Park, N.Y. — The Buffalo Bills are now one spot away from filling their practice squad.
On Monday morning, the Bills announced the signing of fullback Lonnie Pryor and guard D.J. Morrell to their practice squad, which leaves one open spot on the 10-player practice squad.
Pryor, a Florida State product, started his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars after going undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft. He spent time on the Jaguars’ practice squad before the Tampa Bay Buccaneers claimed him. Pryor was with the Bucs through the preseason before being released.
Morrell went undrafted out of Old Dominion in the 2014 NFL Draft and spent time with both the Detroit Lions and St. Louis Rams this summer. He’s 6-feet-6-inches tall and 325 pounds.
Quarterback Jeff Tuel, defensive ends Ike Igbinosun and Bryan Johnson, wide receiver Caleb Holley, safety Deon Broomfield, linebacker Jimmy Gaines and safety Kenny Ladler were signed to the practice squad on Sunday.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have cut two players to start the process of getting down to a 53-man roster. According to Greg Auman, cornerback Keith Lewis, linebacker Ka’lial Glaud and fullback Lonnie Pryor were all released today. Lewis was an undrafted rookie out of Virginia-Lynchburg, while Lonnie Pryor was a local favorite signed late last year. Glaud was an undrafted rookie out of Rutgers last year who spent 7 games on the roster primarily as a special teams player.
Lewis actually recorded an interception yesterday, but that wasn’t enough to keep him on the roster. Lonnie Pryor lost the battle at the fullback position to Jorvorskie Lane, a competition he never really threatened to win. All three players are still eligible for the practice squad.
The Bucs have to cut 19 more players before Saturday, 4:00 p.m. ET to finish their initial round of roster cuts. And then they’ll continue to tweak the bottom of the roster as they get the opportunity to claim waiver wire players they like, and add some of their own cuts and other players to the practice squad.
You can follow all of today’s roster moves in our Roster Cuts Story Stream.
