Less than 24 hours after feeling confident he had made the Buffalo Bills final 53-man roster, punter Colton Schmidt was cut by the Bills on Sunday to make room for punter Corey Bojorquez who had been cut by the New England Patriots the day before.  Bojorquez is a rookie who didn't see any playing time during the preseason.

According to the Bills Bojorquez played his college ball at New Mexico where last year during his senior season he had a gross punting average of better than 47 yards with half his kicks going 50 yards or more.  He also had nearly half his punts downed inside the 20 yard line.

The Bills also picked up cornerback Ryan Lewis who also had been cut the day before by the Patriots.  Lewis was an undrafted rookie signed by the Arizona Cardinals last year then spent the rest of the season on the Patriots practice squad after he was released by the Cardinals.

The Bills also signed eight players to their practice squad; all of them had been cut the day before as the Bills made moves to get down to the league-mandated 53-man roster.

Returning to the Bills are:

  • T Gerhard de Beer
  • RB Keith Ford
  • DE Mike Love
  • S Dean Marlowe
  • WR Cam Phillips
  • LB Corey Thompson
  • CB Levi Wallace
  • T De'Ondre Wesley
