Bills Sign 7 Futures Deals Including DB Phillip Thomas

The Buffalo Bills officially signed seven players to future/reserve contracts on Monday including DB Phillip Thomas.

The others players signed include: S Jonathan Dowling, TE Jacob Maxwell, TE Blake Annen, C Ronald Patrick, DE Cedric Reed and G Cyril Richardson.

Future/reserve contracts are essentially an opportunity for players compete for a roster spot in offseason workouts and training camp.

Thomas, 26, is a former fourth-round pick of the Redskins back in 2013. He was waived by the Redskins a few months ago in a move that cleared $510,000 in cap space for Washington.

The Dolphins would later sign him to a contract, but he lasted just a few weeks in Miami before he was among their early roster cuts. The Bills just recently signed him to their practice squad.

In 2014, Thomas appeared in eight games and recorded 27 tackles and fumble recovery. He previously missed the entire 2013 season after he sustained a broken foot.
