Bills sign cornerback Westbrooks; waive receiver Holley

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills have signed free-agent cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks, and designated receiver Caleb Holley as waived/injured.

The moves were announced Tuesday night, a day after Holley was carted off the field after partially tearing his right hamstring in practice.

Westbrooks was selected by Cincinnati in the seventh round last year, but never played a game with the Bengals. He hurt his thumb and was placed on injured reserve on Aug. 27 before being released a few days later.

Westbrooks had seven interceptions in 49 games, including 41 starts, during a four-year career at Georgia Southern.
