The team announced the move on Tuesday, a day after starting left tackle Cordy Glenn was cleared to take part in full-team practice sessions. Glenn had missed the first three weeks of training camp because of an undisclosed illness.
Coughman spent last season on the Bills practice squad. The team retained him at the end of the season by signing him to a reserve/future contract.
