The Bills made some roster moves on the off day between OTA practices this week. Buffalo signed TE Nate Becker and DT L.T. Walton on Wednesday.

Becker (6-5, 260) was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent this past April by the Detroit Lions, but was released by the club right after their rookie minicamp to make room for a new signing by Detroit. He played his college ball at Miami (OH) University where he served primarily as a blocking tight end. He made 19 receptions in his college career.

Buffalo also added free agent DT L.T. Walton. A former sixth-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in 2015, Walton (6-5, 305) has played the last four seasons for the Steelers largely as a rotational defensive end in Pittsburgh's 3-4 scheme.

He's appeared in 36 career games registering 22 tackles, two sacks and three pass breakups. Walton was not re-signed by the Steelers at the end of his rookie contract.

To make room on the roster the Bills released TE Moral Stephens and DT Quindarius Thagard.
