Buffalo Bills: 6 players they should try to add to their practice squad
Bryan Cox Jr.
Another rule change around the practice squad is that in the past it was limited to players with three or fewer seasons of NFL experience. However, this year NFL teams can add six players with four or more years of experience.
This opens the door for a player like Bryan Cox Jr. to return to the Buffalo Bills. The organization went back to their Carolina Panthers connection by signing the defensive end this offseason, who had Sean McDermott as his defensive coordinator for his rookie season in 2017.
Bryan Cox Jr. was a bit of a long shot to make the 53-man roster due to the veterans the team had at the top of their depth chart with Jerry Hughes, Mario Addison, and Trent Murphy. However, he had a good training camp, and Sal Capaccio even tweeted he felt he had a good shot to make the 53-man roster.
That didn’t end up happening but even though the Buffalo Bills released the pass rusher, Ryan Talbot tweeted that the team hopes to be able to bring him back on their practice squad.
It certainly makes sense to add a player like Bryan Cox Jr. who has experience in this defense and if he was elevated to the active roster could step into this defense and contribute.
