The Buffalo Bills made some roster moves on Wednesday, swapping out one tight end for another, as well as one defensive tackle for another.

The team announced they’ve signed tight end Nate Becker and defensive tackle L.T. Walton, while releasing tight end Moral Stephens and defensive tackle Quindarius Thagard.  

Becker, a Miami (OH) product, was signed as an undrafted free agent last month by the Detroit Lions, but released shorty after. He caught 19 passes for 209 yards and two touchdowns in 35 college games.

Walton is a four-year NFL veteran, all with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was originally selected by Pittsburgh in the sixth round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of Central Michigan. He’s played in 36 NFL games, starting four of them, collecting 22 tackles, including four for loss, two sacks, and three passes defensed.

Both Stephens and Thagard were signed by the Bills after attending rookie minicamp on a tryout basis last month.
