The Buffalo Bills are signing former Miami (OH) tight end Nate Becker to their practice squad.
Becker (6-5, 260) was signed as an undrafted rookie free agent this past April by the Detroit Lions, but was released by the club right after their rookie minicamp to make room for a new signing by Detroit. He played his college ball at Miami (OH) University where he served primarily as a blocking tight end. He made 19 receptions in his college career.
Becker was signed with the Bills last year in June. He spent time off and on on the roster for the Bills. Yesterday, with the Bills releasing TE Jason Croom from their practice squad it allowed the team to bring back the big and athletic tight end.
