Bills sign tight end Andrew George

The Buffalo Bills have signed undrafted rookie free agent Andrew

George to address their depleted tight end position.

The 6-foot-5 George had a career-best 30 catches for 408 yards

and five touchdowns at Brigham Young last year. He signed with

Carolina in April before being released in June.

Signed by Buffalo on Tuesday, George joins J.P. Foschi to become

the second tight end added to the team in consecutive days. The

moves were prompted after tight end Michael Matthews hurt his left

ankle on Monday.

Derek Schouman is expected to miss up to six weeks with a knee

injury, and Shawn Nelson will miss the first four games of the

season serving an NFL suspension.
