The Bills released wide receiver Leonard Hankerson and added two defensive linemen on Monday.

Hankerson finished the 2015 season with the Bills and re-signed with the Bills last spring. A third-round pick of the Redskins in 2011, Hankerson also spent time with the Falcons and Patriots last season.

The Bills signed defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick and Alameda Ta’amu, both of whom have prior NFL experience. Deaderick has played in 60 career regular games with 17 starts for the Patriots, Jaguars, and Saints, while Ta’amu has played in 21 games with the Steelers, Chiefs and Cardinals.

The Bills also released defensive tackle T.J. Barnes.
