Bills re-sign Dean Marlowe, add UFDA Joel Wilson
The Buffalo Bills have brought their offseason roster to the maximum number of 90 players on the field day of 2023 OTAs.
The team announced on Monday that veteran safety Dean Marlowe was re-signed by the team, but the Bills added another undrafted rookie free agent as well: tight end Joel Wilson.
Marlowe, 30, has spent part of four years of his career in Buffalo. Originally joining the team in 2018, Marlowe departed in 2021 to find an opportunity for more playing time.
Last season Marlowe returned to Buffalo to backup the Bills’ starting tandem of Micah Hyde and Jordan Poyer once again as the team traded for him. Marlowe was with the Detroit Lions and Atlanta Falcons during his time away from the team.
Wilson is a 6-foot-4 tight end that played at Central Michigan. When Buffalo originally announced their UDFA additions after the 2023 NFL draft, Wilson was not among them.
With the team using a first-round pick on Dalton Kincaid at the draft, Wilson will have an uphill battle to a final roster spot. However, there’s a chance he could earn a practice squad place.
