Bills add a pair to practice squad

The Buffalo Bills added a pair of former South Florida Bulls to their practice squad Tuesday, signing offensive lineman Marc Dile and cornerback Trae Williams.

Dile joins Buffalo after being released by Tampa Bay on Sept. 5. The 6-foot-4, 300-pound guard originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Buccaneers in 2009. He spent the first five weeks of that season as an inactive, and the final final 11 weeks on the practice squad. While at USF, he played in 51 games (second most in school history) and made 36 starts.

Williams also joins the Bills after being released from Tampa Bay on Sept. 5. He was a fifth-round pick (159th) overall by Jacksonville in 2008. He was released by the Jaguars prior to the start of that season and spent 2008 on Philadelphia's practice squad. Williams also spent time on Seattle's practice squad last season before signing to Pittsburgh's 53-man roster on Dec. 29, 2009.  

A 5-foot-10, 195-pounder, Williams had 16 interceptions for USF (second in school history) and holds records for interception return yards (219) and interceptions returned for touchdowns (four).
