S Silva leaves Bills camp, placed on exempt list

The Buffalo Bills have placed Mana Silva on the exempt-left
squad list after the backup safety left training camp without being
excused.

The NFL granted the Bills permission to make the move Tuesday, a
day after Silva left camp before the team’s scrimmage in suburban
Rochester.

Silva’s agent, Josh Arnold, told The Associated Press that his
client is re-examining his priorities after experiencing some
recent personal issues. Arnold hopes Silva will return to playing
football soon.

The Bills signed Silva to their practice squad last October
after he was cut by Dallas. He was added to the Bills’ active
roster a month later, and appeared in seven games.

An undrafted free agent out of Hawaii, Silva also appeared in
five games split over two seasons with Dallas.
