Bills release Jerel Worthy, sign Deandre Coleman

The Bills re-signed defensive tackle Deandre Coleman on Tuesday, releasing veteran Jerel Worthy in a corresponding move.

Coleman spent training camp with the Bills, but they released him Sept. 5 to make room for the signing of defensive tackle Cedric Thornton. Buffalo signed Coleman to its practice squad Sept. 20 before releasing him a week later.

He likely plays on early downs to help the Bills’ run defense, which has allowed 492 rushing yards the past two games to fall from third in the league against the run to 22nd.

Worthy, a second-round pick of the Packers in 2012, played in five games this season with five tackles.

  1. I trust the process and believe McDermott is the guy to lead us out of moribund cesspool of a playoff drought. I have to agree with you though, i think it was a misstep taking Milano out for Humber. Milano is a playmaker and a sure tackler, something we missed the two weeks we sat him for Humber. Dennison should be on thin ice with his play calling. I loved the idea of Tolbert when we picked him up but seeing him get two touches in the same set of downs is disheartening.

  2. The problem with the running game is the fact they don’t have a home-run threat besides McCoy. With Gillislee and Karlos, you had both a back that could churn out the tough yardage, but also turn those between the tackle runs into TD’s. I understand why Tolbert is on the roster, and playing RB, but ignoring the fact that he is strictly a short yardage/additional blocker is killing this offense. As far as the defense, they are undersized in the front 7. Don’t even start with the Dareus talk, I’ll just point you to the Miami and Steeler games, and then politely inform you he was playing 25% of the defensive snaps in the games he even played. You can make this defense work, but it requires perfect technique and sure tackling(sounds like I’ve heard this somewhere before?). Oh yeah, and Tyrod is terrible.
