The Bills roster is now officially at the maximum 53 players after the team claimed a pair of players off waivers Sunday.  Punter Corey Bojorquez and cornerback Ryan Lewis had both been with the New England Patriots but were released on Saturday.  To make room for the new acquisitions, punter Colton Schmidt was released.  The roster was previously at 52 players, so that was the only move required to get the roster to 53.

Schmidt had been with the Bills since 2014.  He had played in 64 games in a Bills’ uniform and recorded 322 punts, fifth most in team history.  He ranks second in franchise history with a net average of 44.1 yards per punt.

Also Sunday, the team announced that they have eight players to their ten man practice squad.  All eight of them had been released by the club as part of their final cutdowns on Saturday.

Signed to the Bills practice squad: T Gerhard de Beer, RB Keith Ford, DE Mike Love, S Dean Marlowe, WR Cam Phillips, LB Corey Thompson, CB Levi Wallace, T De'Ondre Wesley

That leaves two practice squad spots still to be filled.
