The Buffalo Bills announced that they’ve signed OL Jeremiah Sirles to a one-year contract on Tuesday.
Sirles takes the roster spot of OT Marshall Newhouse, who has been traded to the Panthers.
Sirles, 27, originally signed on with the Chargers as an undrafted free agent out of Nebraska back in 2014. He was unable to make the 53-man roster during his rookie season and spent the year on the team’s practice squad.
The Chargers later traded Sirles to the Vikings in return for a 2016 sixth-round pick that eventually became FB Derek Watt. Minnesota brought Sirles back on an exclusive rights contract last year but declined to tender him a contract as a restricted free agent this offseason.
The Panthers signed Sirles to a contract only to release him with an injury settlement at the start of the regular season.
In 2017, Sirles appeared in 14 games for the Vikings and was rated by Pro Football Focus as the No. 48 offensive tackle out of 81 qualifying player
