The Bills released receiver Jake Kumerow on Thursday, according to the league’s transactions wire. The team, though, re-signed Kumerow on Thursday night, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports.

The moves were made for salary-cap purposes.

The Bills originally re-signed Kumerow to a one-year deal on March 10.

He played a career-high 15 games for the Bills last season, seeing action on 116 offensive snaps and a career-high 264 on special teams. Kumerow caught two passes for 28 yards and was credited with five tackles. He also recovered a fumble.

The 2021 season was his second in Buffalo after two seasons in Green Bay.

  1. Kumerow.
    He had one fantastic 12 catch season in Green Bay and everyone thought Aaron was going to make him his next “guy”.
    He’s just special teams filler.

  2. Really…? How much did they save? I can’t imagine he was making top level reciever money.

  3. As soon as they cut him, he should’ve called A Rod and got signed in GB. Even if he did have a deal set up with Buffalo beforehand.

  4. Thanks! Instead of letting us know what his cap number was going to be, you let us know he caught two passes and had a fumble recovery.

  5. Caught 2 passes for 28 yards.

    No wonder Aaron Rodgers was upset that the Pack let him go…..

  6. He has 23 total catches in 4 years playing with Rodgers and Allen…he’s not good.

  7. Too bad the Vikes couldn’t land him. He’d have been the #1 WR in East Dakota.

  8. He’s overrated. If Rodgers did not talk about this guy once no one would know who he is. Was a UDFA in 2015 and since then has 23 catches and 3 TDs. This guy is nothing special.

  9. he had two TD Drops that I saw last year, also surprised that he didnt go to Green Bay as Arod loves him
