The Bills claimed two players on Sunday, cornerback Ryan Lewis and punter Corey Bojorquez.
Lewis (6-0, 195) was released by the New England Patriots in final cuts on Saturday. The 24-year old spent the 2017 season on New England’s practice squad and was re-signed by the Patriots for the 2018 offseason.
Originally signed as an undrafted rookie by Arizona out of Pitt last year, Lewis did not make the Cardinals 53-man roster and spent a short time on Arizona’s practice squad before being released and picked up by the Patriots.
The Bills also made a change to their special teams unit a day after assembling their 53-man roster.
Bojorquez (6-0, 208) was most recently a rookie punter for the New England Patriots, but did not see any action in the preseason. The 21-year old played his college ball at New Mexico, where he had a very productive senior season in 2017.
The punter had a gross average of better than 47 yards that year with almost half of his kicks going 50 yards or more (31 of 67). He also had 32 of those 67 punts downed inside the opponent’s 20-yard line. Bojorquez also forced 25 fair catches in 2017.
The rookie replaces veteran Colton Schmidt as the team’s punter, who was released to make room on the roster for Bojorquez.
