Bills sign former Illinois State RB Mendenhall

Free agent running back Walter Mendenhall has signed with the

Buffalo Bills.

Mendenhall has yet to play an NFL game after being released by

Indianapolis before the start of last season. He was an undrafted

rookie free agent out of Illinois State, who initially signed with

Philadelphia earlier in the year.

Mendenhall had 796 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns during his

senior season. He previously played three years at Illinois.

His younger brother, Rashard Mendenhall, is a running back with

the Pittsburgh Steelers.
