Bills' Roosevelt excited to join all the 'Buffalo boys'


And then there were four.

With the Buffalo Bills' recent re-signing of receiver Naaman Roosevelt, the squad now has a two-pair of Buffalo natives, as he joins Derek Brim, Corey Graham and Mike Williams on the roster.

"I got released by Detroit and Buffalo called me right away," Roosevelt said Monday, via BuffaloBills.com. "It's crazy that there are so many Buffalo boys on the roster now. I love it."

Roosevelt signed with the Detroit Lions earlier this offseason but was released last Saturday. He played in 16 games for the Bills between 2010-11, tallying 25 receptions for 396 yards and a touchdown.

The Bills also added 6-3, 274-pound defensive lineman Landon Cohen and released receiver Ramses Barden and linebacker Nathan Williams.

Cohen was drafted in the seventh round by the Detroit Lions in 2008 and played under current Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz for one season when he coached Lions in 2009. Cohen has since played for four teams over the past four seasons.
