The Buffalo Bills had reportedly tried to claim former New York Jets tight end Jordan Leggett after Tyler Kroft had broken his foot on the first day of OTAs on Monday.

The team did end up adding a tight end on Wednesday, signing free agent tight end Mik'Quan Deane. The Bills also added to the offensive line with the signing of tackle De'Ondre Wesley.

Deane is an undrafted rookie tight end out of Western Kentucky. He had 44 catches for 530 yards and six touchdowns in his senior season. He was let go by the Seattle Seahawks earlier this week.

The Bills now sit with seven tight ends on the roster, including the injured Kroft. With Lee Smith's recent contract including guaranteed money, Dawson Know being a third round pick, and Kroft's big deal, it's likely that only one roster spot at the position is up for grabs. Jason Croom and seventh round pick Tommy Sweeney will be leading candidates for that spot.

De'Ondre Wesley has spent time with the Bills in the past. He was on the practice squad in 2017, and was on the roster during the 2018 offseason. Wesley was cut from the practice squad in September, and then latched on with the Indianapolis Colts.
