Bills Sign DT Alameda Ta’amu & DL Brandon Deaderick, Cut Two

The Buffalo Bills announced that they’ve signed defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick and Alameda Ta’amu to contracts.

Ta’amu, 25, is a former fourth-round pick of the Steelers back in 2012. He lasted just over a year in Pittsburgh before he was placed on waivers at the start of the 2013 season and later claimed by the Cardinals.

Arizona elected to move on from Ta’amu coming out of the preseason last year. Ta’amu wound up signing a future/reserve contract with the Chiefs this past January, but was cut loose just a few weeks ago.

In 2014, Ta’amu appeared in seven games for the Cardinals, but did not record a single statistic.

Deaderick, 28, is a former seventh-round pick of the Patriots back in 2010. He spent ovoer three years in New England before he was waived and later claimed by the Jaguars.

After spending the 2014 season with the Saints, Deaderick signed on with the Texans as an unrestricted free agent in June of last year. Unfortunately, Deaderick lasted just a few months with the team before he was cut loose at the start of the regular season.

In 2014, Deaderick appeared in 13 games and recorded eight tackles and no sacks.
