Bills add pair to practice squad

With two vacancies on Buffalo's eight-man practice squad, the team's personnel department set to work on filling those two spots signing free agent G Marc Dile and free agent CB Trae Williams.

Dile (6'4", 300) was signed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted rookie in 2009. He made the 53-man roster a year ago coming out of training camp, but was waived after Week 5 as the team subsequently signed him to their practice squad.

Williams (5'10", 195) was a fifth-round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2008, but did not make the final roster later that year. He spent the 2008 season on the Philadelphia Eagles practice squad, and spent most of 2009 on the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks.

Late in 2009 he was signed off the Seattle practice squad by Pittsburgh, but was released the following June. He was signed this past summer by Tampa Bay, but did not make the final roster.

Williams' 16 interceptions at South Florida rank second in school history and holds records for interception return yards (219) and interception-touchdown returns with four.

Williams and Dile are teammates for the second time in the NFL as both were with the Tampa Bay organization at the same time. The two were also college teammates at South Florida.
