The Buffalo Bills have added 10 players to their practice squad, including quarterback Davis Webb, who comes over from the New York Jets.

Davis comes to the Bills after spending all of last season and this preseason with the Jets, this week's opponent at MetLife Stadium. He was originally a third round pick of the New York Giants in 2017 out of California.

Nate Hall was released by the Dallas Cowboys after signing as an undrafted free agent out of Northwestern. Tyron Johnson was released by the Houston Texans after originally signing this year as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State. The other seven players were all with the Bills this preseason, but released oin Saturday.

The team has one open practice squad spot remaining. NFL teams are normally only allowed 10 players on the unit, but the Bills are allowed 11 spots this year by giving former UK rugby star Christian Wade an exemption. The running back is part of the league's International Pathways Program.

By electing to put him on the practice squad via the exemption, Wade is not eligible to be activated by the Bills or signed by any other team in 2019.

All other players on the practice squad are considered free agents and free to sign with any team at any time, but then must immediately be placed on that team's 53-man active roster.
