Tight end Nick Provo, who played under Bills coach Doug Marrone at Syracuse, was signed Sunday by the team.
Provo, 24, participated in the Bills' voluntary minicamp in April on a tryout basis. The 6-foot-4, 249-pounder set a Syracuse school record for career catches by a tight end, with 92. His 1,027 receiving yards were the second most in school history for a tight end.
Provo signed as an undrafted free agent with the Baltimore Ravens in 2012, but was released prior to the start of the regular season.
The Bills need some depth at the position, as Scott Chandler is being eased into the lineup after surgery to repair a torn ACL, and reserve Mike Caussin injured his hip Friday.
To make room on the roster for Provo, the team released offensive lineman Hutch Eckerson.
