The Bills have signed seven undrafted free agents, the club said Tuesday.

Two University of Florida products — defensive tackle Damien Jacobs and linebacker Darrin Kitchens — are among the signeees.

Jacobs (6-3, 290) played two seasons for the Gators, recording 34 tackles (six for loss) and notching 2.5 sacks. He started four games as a senior.

Kitchens (6-2, 230) appeared in 45 games (six starts) in a four-season career with Florida, posting 59 tackles (four for loss).

In addition to Jacobs and Kitchens, the Bills signed these undrafted rookies: Iowa State safety Deon Broomfield, Miami (Fla.) linebacker James Gaines, West Texas A&M Bryan Johnson, Vanderbilt safety Kenny Ladler and Clemson cornerback Darius Robinson.

The club also said it had reached agreements with two University at Buffalo products: safety Derek Brim and defensive lineman Colby Way.

    I hope Kitchens can stand the heat.

    Ladler could actually make the team. The others? Mostly local guys but it’s great they get a shot.

    Buffalo is the land of opportunity.

    Where did Brandon Oliver land? Has he even signed anywhere?

    Bo went to Indy.

    Kid has skill. Hope he makes it.

    Same with Neutz, who went to Cincy.

    I wish they took a chance on Colt Lyerla.

    Kid was once a 1st round talent and nobody will touch him…kind of like Vontaze Burfict, and look at his resume now.

    Kiko Alonso is in Buffalo and could really help Lyerla…as could the TE room and the great personalities they have in that room.

    They have given a lot of players second chances…Colt deserves to be on of those.

    No QB additions at all this offseason? My bad, it’s the Bills. I mean, why wouldn’t you be happy with a 1:1 td/int ratio and 57% passing?

    The Clemson Cornerback will make the team.

    Exactly, why wouldnt people be happy with slightly above average stats from a rookie QB who wasnt even supposed to start last season and was injured half the year. I dont get it. I mean, those stats are only comparable to Peyton Mannings rookie season, and look at what a scrub he turned out to be.

    Look, not saying hes the next Peyton Manning, but first seasons in the NFL DO NOT MATTER. Its about what you put together over a career. If he improves this year, theres no reason NOT to keep him on. But do not condemn a guy after 1 year. If everyone had to make it in their first year, the NFL wouldnt have many players left.

    From Ohio State’s website they announce Ohio State super sub QB Kenny Guiton signed with the Bills so they did pick up a QB.
