Buffalo has made a bunch of changes on offense this offseason with their offensive line leading the way. Not far behind however, has been their shuffling of the deck at running back. That continued on Monday with the signing of free agent RB T.J. Yeldon.

Yeldon, 25, has spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Jacksonville Jaguars, after the club made him a second-round pick in the 2015 NFL draft.

With the 2019 free agency period officially open, here's a look at Buffalo's acquisitions.

After starting as a rookie, Yeldon has served mainly as a reserve running back for the Jaguars each of the past three seasons with the past two backing up Leonard Fournette.

The Alabama product is adept at making himself skinny to get through creases and anticipates running lanes well.

Yeldon has also proven to be a threat as a receiver out of the backfield with a pair of 50-catch seasons over the last three years, including a career-high 55-reception campaign in 2018.

The addition of Yeldon now gives Buffalo six running backs on their roster. Yeldon also visited with the New England Patriots.
