Bills add OL to practice squad

The Bills made a change to their practice squad Friday afternoon, adding offensive lineman Mansfield Wrotto. The four-year NFL veteran was most recently with the Seattle Seahawks on the club's 53-man roster and appeared in two games thus far this season.

Wrotto (6'3" 313) was released by Seattle this past Tuesday after Seahawks first-round pick Russell Okung returned from an injury that had kept him out of the lineup. A former fourth-round pick of the Seahawks in 2007, Wrotto has played mainly guard in the NFL, but offers versatility with some experience at tackle as well.

The Georgia Tech product was recruited by and played for Bills head coach Chan Gailey in college. He's also familiar with Bills offensive line coach Joe D'Alessandris, who coached him during his senior season. Wrotto is considered an athletic offensive lineman with size and good physical tools, despite still being relatively young at the position. 

Wrotto only played one collegiate season on the offensive line as he played his first three seasons for Georgia Tech at defensive tackle. He was selected to play in the Senior Bowl after his senior season at offensive tackle for the Yellow Jackets.

To make room on the eight-man practice squad for Wrotto, the Bills waived TE Rob Myers.
