The Buffalo Bills continued to fortify their special teams ranks signing free agent RB Senorise Perry to a one-year contract.

Perry, 27, spent the past two seasons with the Miami Dolphins chiefly as a special teams performer. After finishing third on the Dolphins in special teams tackles in 2017, Perry led the team in special teams tackles last season and had a fumble recovery.

With the 2019 free agency period officially open, here's a look at Buffalo's acquisitions.

Perry is part of a concerted effort to raise the talent and performance level of Buffalo’s coverage units from last season. The Bills front office re-signed long snapper Reid Ferguson to a multi-year extension and primary gunner Lafayette Pitts.

In the first wave of free agent signings, Pro Bowl returner Andre Roberts was added and now Perry.

Perry (6-0, 211) was originally an undrafted rookie signing of the Chicago Bears, where he had a productive rookie season in 2014. He led the club in special teams tackles that year with 17 and forced a pair of fumbles.  

Being a former running back, Perry does have kick return experience. Twelve of his 22 career kick returns have gone for more than 20 yards.
