Bills bring back fullback Felton 10 days after he was cut

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills have re-signed fullback Jerome Felton about 10 days after the ninth-year player was among the team's final cuts.

The Bills initially signed Felton to a four-year contract in March 2015 to provide muscle to their running game. Buffalo, however, used mostly a one-man backfield which led to Felton being used sparingly last season.

The signing came a day after Buffalo managed just 65 yards rushing in a 13-7 season-opening loss at Baltimore. The Bills have a short week in preparing to host the New York Jets on Thursday night.

To make room, Buffalo released fullback Glenn Gronkowski, the younger brother of New England star tight end Rob Gronkowski.

Glenn Gronkowski was an undrafted rookie free agent, who played just eight snaps against Baltimore.
