Bills sign CB Breon Borders

Posted Dec 16, 2017

Buffalo filled their vacant roster spot by signing CB Breon Borders off the Oakland practice squad Saturday.

Buffalo made quick use of the vacant roster spot left behind when OT Cordy Glenn was placed on injured reserve Friday. The Bills signed CB Breon Borders off of the Oakland Raiders practice squad.

Borders, 22, signed with the Raiders as an undrafted rookie this past May. He did not make the 53-man roster and was subsequently signed to the Oakland practice squad, where he’s been all season.

A three-year starter at Duke, Borders (6-0, 180) has a nose for the ball as evidenced by his 12 career interceptions. He also had 26 pass breakups and allowed a completion percentage against of just 38 percent in his final two seasons with the Blue Devils.

Borders has good length and is seen as a good fit for a zone-based scheme like that of Buffalo. Having just signed with the club, he’s not expected to dress for Sunday’s game against Miami.
