Ikard, 26, originally signed on with the Titans as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma back in 2015. He was waived at the start of the season and was later claimed off of waivers by the Bills.
After a brief stint with the Browns, the Lions claimed him off of waivers before cutting him loose coming out of the preseason. Ikard would later sign on to the Bills’ practice squad before getting called up a few weeks later.
Unfortunately, Buffalo waived Ikard during the season last year and he was later claimed off of waivers by the Browns. Cleveland waived him back in August.
Ikard stands to make a base salary of $615,000 for the 2017 season.
In 2016, Ikard appeared in two games for the Bills and Browns.
