Bills return RBs Cadet and Jones to the fold


After spending the early stages of free agency adding mostly new additions from other clubs to the Bills roster, Buffalo brought two of their own free agents back onto the squad. The Bills agreed to terms on one-year contracts with running backs Travaris Cadet and Taiwan Jones on Friday.

Ironically, Cadet, 28, originally signed with the Bills last November after the club lost Taiwan Jones to a broken arm suffered on an onsides kick against the Jets last season.

Cadet contributed right away rushing for 93 yards while averaging 4.2 yards per carry in six games. He also had 13 receptions for 93 yards as he put his versatility on full display.

Unfortunately, Cadet also suffered a season-ending injury when he sustained a fractured ankle in the Bills Week 16 game at New England after his foot was caught in the turf and twisted awkwardly under his full body weight.

Both players are healthy now and expected to participate fully when the team's offseason conditioning program begins in mid-April.

Jones, who turns 30 in July, appeared in eight games for the Bills last season primarily on special teams.

Both will be battling for depth roles at running back and on special teams this coming season.
