Buffalo Bills sign free-agent DB Mark LeGree

The Buffalo Bills have signed free agent defensive back Mark

LeGree to fill the roster spot left open following Mana Silva’s

unexcused departure.

LeGree has yet to play in the NFL after being selected by

Seattle in the fifth round of the 2011 draft out of Appalachian

State. He was cut by the Seahawks before the start of his rookie


He has spent the past two years on practice squads in Arizona,

San Francisco, the New York Jets and Atlanta.

LeGree was signed Wednesday, a day after the Bills placed Silva

on the exempt-left squad list. Silva left training camp without

informing the Bills before practice Monday.

Silva’s agent, Josh Arnold, said his client is re-examining his

priorities after experiencing some recent personal issues.
