Free agent running back Dan “Boom” Herron is back in Buffalo.

The Bills announced today that they signed Herron, who also spent time in Buffalo last season.

Herron is a 27-year-old running back who had recently worked out for the Dolphins. He was a 2012 sixth-round pick of the Bengals out of Ohio State and has also played for the Colts. In his career, Herron has 112 carries for 468 yards and one touchdown, plus 31 catches for 277 yards.

The Buffalo Bills announced Thursday that the team has signed RB Dan “Boom” Herron. In accordance with team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Buffalo cut cornerback Julian Whigham to make room for Herron on the 90-player roster.

  1. i know he’s had issues off the field so far in his nfl career, but averages of over 4 YPC and 9 (8.95) YPR show that he could really help a team if he keeps his head on straight. hope it works out for the kid…

  2. I never understood why teams repeatedly sign really slow running backs.

  3. I dont know why. The Bills are already a mile and a half deep at HB. Lesean Mccoy is the presumed starter. Karlos Williams was the 2nd best rookie HB last season. Mike Gillislee was a massive surprise late last season and proved he can carry the torch if someone goes down. And then you have rookie Jonathan Williams who the press say has been good enough in practice so far that he may end up as the #2. Herron was solid last year for us, but he will be nothing but camp fodder this offseason

  4. Here is a fact: The Dolphins have the most unanswered and untested Running Back situation in the entire league and they let this guy walk. Does this tell you something? If I was a Bills fan… all I could think is “hey, we need guys to run the ball and hold the blocking dummies in camp”.
