The Bills executed a practice squad move on Tuesday signing free agent WR Jake Kumerow to their practice squad on Tuesday.

Kumerow (6-4 ½, 209) was recently released by the Green Bay Packers after appearing in 19 games for the club over the past two seasons.

A reserve receiver for Green Bay, Kumerow appeared in 14 games last season, making four starts as he pulled in 12 receptions for 219 yards and a touchdown.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, in a recent appearance on Sirius XM NFL Radio, had high praise for the former undrafted rookie (2015) out of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

"Jake Kumerow has been such a solid performer for us for the last couple years," Rodgers said last Thursday. "I love his reliability. I think he's a fantastic, steady player who's very heady on the field. He makes plays. He plays with a lot of confidence, and he's a guy you love having on the squad."

Kumerow was considered a surprise release by the Packers last weekend.

The Wisconsin-Whitewater product (Division 3) was originally signed as an undrafted rookie by Cincinnati 2015 and spent his first two seasons on the Bengals practice squad. He also had a brief stint with New England before being picked up by the Packers late in 2017.

Kumerow, 28, is the son of former Dolphins LB Eric Kumerow and is a cousin of NFL defensive ends Joey and Nick Bosa.

To make room on the practice squad for Kumerow, the Bills released OT Brandon Walton.
