The Buffalo Bills announced Wednesday that they’ve signed DT Justin Zimmer to their active roster.
“Justin really stepped up and gave us quite a bit in being able to put some pressure on the QB and helped us some in the run game as well. He really did a good job,” said DC Leslie Frazier regarding Zimmer’s recent performance.
Zimmer, 27, originally signed on with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Ferris State back in 2016. He lasted just a few months in Buffalo before he was waived at the start of the season.
The Saints later signed Zimmer to their practice squad towards the end of the 2016 season and brought him back on a futures contract a month later. Unfortunately, the Saints waived Zimmer and he sat out the entire 2017 season.
From there, Zimmer joined the Falcons in 2018 before signing on with the Bills this past summer.
In 2020, Zimmer has appeared in two games for the Bills and recorded 10 tackles and no sacks.
