The Bills added a pair of players to their roster on Tuesday, one for each side of the ball. Buffalo signed free agent S Abraham Wallace and G Isaac Asiata just two days before training camp.
Wallace (5-10, 192) is a familiar face from the spring. He signed with the Bills after making good on a tryout opportunity during the team’s rookie minicamp this past May.
He was released by the club on May 22nd when injuries at tight end forced the Bills to sign a free agent tight end during OTA practices.
Wallace went undrafted this past spring. He played his final collegiate season at West Alabama, after spending a year at Texas Tech (2017) and two years at LSU (2015-2016) where he was a teammate of Tre’Davious White.
In 2018, he had 60 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a half sack. The safety will be competing with sixth-round pick Jaquan Johnson among others behind Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer on the depth chart.
Asiata, (6-3, 345) is a former fifth-round pick of the Miami Dolphins (2017) and was with the club last season on their practice squad. After being placed on waived-injured by the Dolphins this past May during OTAs, Asiata transitioned to injured reserve, before ultimately being released by the club in June.
He has appeared in two games in his NFL career, both for the Dolphins, with one coming in 2017 and the other in 2018.
To make room on the roster for Wallace and Asiata, the Bills released WR Da’Mari Scott and OL Jeremiah Sirles was placed on injured reserve with a foot injury.
