The Buffalo Bills have signed five players to their practice squad (via CBS sports). As reported by by Chris Brown, the confirmed additions are:


Wide receiver  Kamar Aiken

Wide receiver Marcus Easley 

Defensive End Jarron Gilbert

Cornerback Isaiah Green

Center David Snow


The Bills did not have enough roster spots to keep all of their wide receivers. However, it's good that they were able to keep their young receivers on the practice squad, especially former fourth-round pick Marcus Easley.

Buffalo still has three available slots on their practice squad, so expect further announcements over the next day or two. 

Keep an eye on defensive end Jarron Gilbert. A third-round pick in 2009, Gilbert has not yet found his place in the NFL. His physical talents and 6'5'' 289-pound frame give him potential that the Bills hope to turn into ability.

Gilbert originally impressed scouts in the NFL Combine when he ran a 4.76 40, an impressive time for such a big player. He has yet to accomplish much in the NFL; however, at 25 years old, he is too young to be considered a bust. Hopefully he'll continue to develop as a player and become an asset to the Bills.
