The Bills on Friday signed linebacker/safety Maurice Alexander to a one-year deal worth $1.375 million, a source said. Alexander visited the Bills after one season with the Seahawks in which he played exclusively on special teams. Alexander, who also played extensively on defense for the Rams from 2014-17, should factor into the Bills' special-teams mix.

The Bills on Friday announced a one-year contract with free-agent tight end Jake Fisher. A converted offensive tackle who the Bengals drafted in the second round in 2015, Fisher will compete for a blocking tight end role for Buffalo.

Free-agent tight end Jake Fisher will visit the Bills on Friday after visiting the Redskins on Thursday, ESPN's John Keim reported. Fisher was drafted as an offensive tackle in the second round by the Bengals in 2015 but has recently dropped weight in an effort to become a blocking tight end. The Bills could use depth at the position with only Tyler Kroft and Jason Croom under contract at the position.

Mina talks to former NFL LB Kirk Morrison about the hype train for the Browns (3:15), the angriest looking coach in the NFL (9:55), why the sophomore slump for QBs is a real thing (31:50), what the Packers should do to help Aaron Rodgers (49:09), the Costco portion of free agency, and if he'd rather give up cake or pie (1:09:54). Plus, Mina discusses why she's here for the fish tank (11:05) and the time she awkwardly got in a revolving door with a 2-time Super Bowl champ (1:04:48).

The Bills will host free-agent safety Maurice Alexander on a visit later this week, a source said Tuesday. Alexander exclusively played special teams for the Seahawks last season after four seasons contributing on defense for the Rams. Buffalo is deep at safety but its low-rated special teams could use a boost. NFL Network first reported the visit.

The Bills on Saturday announced that they signed former Patriots offensive tackle LaAdrian Waddle to a one-year contract. Waddle played in 31 games the past four seasons for New England, making seven starts. He projects to fill a similar swing tackle role in Buffalo behind 2017 second-round pick Dion Dawkins and Ty Nsekhe, who signed a two-year, $14.5 million deal this week from Washington. Waddle is the fifth free agent offensive lineman the Bills have signed this offseason, joining Nsekhe, center Mitch Morse, guard/center Spencer Long and guard/center Jon Feliciano as GM Brandon Beane attempts to address the team's biggest deficiency last season.

Linebacker Mark Nzeocha, a key special teams player for the 49ers last season, visited Thursday with the Bills, a source told ESPN's Field Yates. Nzeocha would add competition to backup linebacker for Buffalo with Julian Stanford, Deon Lacey and Corey Thompson.

An irritated Bills general manager Brandon Beane said Thursday in a news conference the "narrative" about Buffalo not being a free-agent destination "pissed him off" and "started with a bad rumor on the Antonio Brown thing when people were looking for reasons and didn't have all the facts." Several reports indicated Brown did not want to come to Buffalo, nixing a trade between the Bills and Steelers. Beane described the trade talks as "positive all around" but Buffalo "just decided to withdraw." Of the perception Buffalo is not a free-agent destination, Beane said, "Don't speak about Buffalo if you don't know what this city and fan base is like. It really pissed me off. It's not true. How many [free agent signings] flowed through here today? ... I can't tell you how many players commented 'This is amazing. This is awesome. What a facility. What a culture.' This city, we love it. Anybody that says that doesn't know Buffalo and really is speaking out of ignorance."

Andre Roberts, who signed a two-year deal Thursday with the Bills, questioned the Jets' decision not to re-sign him after he made Associated Press' All-Pro team and the Pro Bowl as a returner. "I was surprised," he said. "Any guy that was an All-Pro and the team doesn't really want to sign him back, I think would be surprised. ... I understand it's a business thing. The way [the Jets] kind of handled it was a little shady. But it is what is." Roberts said he chose Buffalo in part to be able to play the Jets twice a year, adding, "Coming from there, I know all about what they're about. Being able to go against my old team is always going to be fun."

Cole Beasley, who chose to sign a four-year, $29 million deal with Buffalo after considering offers from Dallas and New England, stuck by his tweet in January that Dallas' front office "pushes who they want to get the ball to." Said Beasley in his introductory news conference Thursday: "That was just me answering a question honestly that a fan asked me. I still feel like it's the truth. Maybe I shouldn't have said it just because of the attention it brought. I'm not a guy that wants or needs a ton of attention. I also got to understand where I'm at professionally."

Bills WR Cole Beasley, in his introductory news conference Thursday, said his decision as a free agent came down to Buffalo, New England and Dallas. "Really I just wanted to be in a place where I had more opportunities, and this seemed like the place to be," Beasley said. He signed a four-year, $29 million contract with Buffalo with $10.7 million fully guaranteed. "[Opportunities] are the main reason why I came here," Beasley said. "Money is important, but I just wanted opportunities. I felt like I could do more."

The Bills continued to add wide receiver depth Wednesday by signing Andre Roberts, formerly of the Jets, a source told ESPN's Diana Russini. Roberts projects at least to fill kick and punt return duties for Buffalo, who shuffled through several players at both spots last season. The move could push a young receiver such as Isaiah McKenzie or Ray-Ray McCloud off the roster.

The Bills did not extend restricted free agent Logan Thomas a tender, the NFL announced Wednesday. That would have cost the Bills about $2 million, which they apparently deemed too rich for the former quarterback who converted to tight end in 2016 but caught only 19 passes for 144 yards the past two seasons for the Bills.

Free agent defensive end Ziggy Ansah will visit the Bills first before visiting New Orleans, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. If Buffalo signs Ansah, it would likely signal some sort of other move at defensive end. Jerry Hughes enters the final season of his contract, as does 2016 first-round pick Shaq Lawson -- whose fifth-year option decision for 2020 is due by May. There is also Trent Murphy, who will count $8.7 million against the Bills' salary cap this season.

The Bills aren't messing around with their offensive line rebuild. The team agreed Tuesday evening to sign former Raiders guard Jon Feliciano to a two-year deal, a source told ESPN's Chris Mortensen. That makes four free agent offensive linemen the Bills have added ā€” Feliciano, Spencer Long, Ty Nsekhe and Mitch Morse. Factor Feliciano into the competition at guard with Long and 2018 fifth-round pick Wyatt Teller.

The Bills intend to sign former Redskins offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe to a free agent deal Wednesday, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter. The deal is for two years and worth $14.5 million with $7.7 million guaranteed, his agent Vincent Taylor said. Nsekhe was the Redskins' swing tackle the past four seasons -- never the full-time starter -- but that sort of money indicates Nsekhe will replace free agent Jordan Mills as the Bills' starting right tackle. That means Buffalo is likely to have at least three new starters along the offensive line this season: Mitch Morse (center), Spencer Long (right guard) and Nsekhe (right tackle).
