The Buffalo Bills signed tight end Rory Anderson and safety Adrian McDonald.
The 6-foot-5, 244-pound Anderson is a former seventh-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 2015. He did not make the 49ers' 53-man roster as a rookie but was signed to the Chicago Bears' practice squad. By midseason, he landed on the Bears' practice squad/injured list.
Anderson, 24, battled injuries throughout his college career at South Carolina, including torn triceps in both arms. He still managed to make 61 catches for 954 yards and nine touchdowns for the Gamecocks.
The 5-9, 190-pound McDonald was an undrafted rookie signing of the San Diego Chargers in 2016. He spent his rookie year on the Chargers' practice squad but was released by the team last week.
McDonald earned All-American honors at the University of Houston. He set the school record for interceptions with 17 in his college career
To make room for Anderson and McDonald on the roster, the Bills released kicker/punter Austin Rehkow and waived/injured tight end Jason Croom, who was injured against the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night in the second preseason game and was seen wearing a walking boot.
