Bills add TE Nate Becker, DT L.T. Walton


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.
