The Buffalo Bills have claimed tight end Mickey Shuler off waivers after he was released by the Oakland Raiders.

Listed at 6-foot-4 and 247 pounds, Shuler spent the final 11 weeks of last season on Oakland's practice squad. He was selected by Minnesota in the seventh round of the 2010 draft out of Penn State. He split his rookie season with Minnesota and Miami, where he had two catches for 44 yards in six games.

He split the 2011 season between Cincinnati, Minnesota and Miami.

The Bills are in need of tight end depth with returning starter Scott Chandler recuperating from surgery to repair a torn left knee ligament. To make room for Shuler's addition on Tuesday, the Bills placed undrafted rookie receiver Kevin Norrell on waived/injured.
