Buffalo Bills sign WR Ruvell Martin

The Buffalo Bills addressed their banged-up group of receivers

by signing free agent Ruvell Martin.

Martin has five seasons of NFL experience after spending last

year with Seattle. He has 65 catches for 1,006 yards and seven

touchdowns in 53 games, including nine starts.

A Saginaw Valley (Mich.) State product, Martin has also played

with Green Bay and St. Louis.

The Bills are in need of healthy receivers as they prepare to

host Jacksonville Saturday. Receivers Roscoe Parrish (left calf),

Donald Jones (head), Naaman Roosevelt (right ankle) and Craig Davis

have all missed the first two days of practice this week.

Buffalo’s receiving corps has already been depleted after the

team traded seven-year veteran Lee Evans to Baltimore two weeks

ago.
