Bills drop receiver Roosevelt, pick up reserve corner


The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday they have signed cornerback Rod Sweeting to their practice squad.

In a corresponding move, the team released wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt.

Sweeting, a 6-0, 187-pounder out of Georgia Tech, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent in 2013 with the New Orleans Saints, where he played in nine games.

The Miami native was released by the Saints prior to the start of this season and joined the Miami Dolphins practice squad.

During his time at Georgia Tech, Sweeting recorded 160 tackles, one sack, five interceptions, 24 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries.
