The Buffalo Bills have reportedly filled one of the three holes on their 53-man roster with cornerback Brandon Burton.
While there has been no official announcement from the team, that report comes directly from the player himself, on his verified Twitter page.

Burton, 24, is a former fifth-round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings in 2011. He played in 14 games over the past two seasons with the team, including one start, before being released Saturday. Burton, 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, played collegiately at Utah.
The Bills now have five healthy cornerbacks on the roster: Burton, Leodis McKelvin, Justin Rogers, Ron Brooks and Nickell Robey. No. 1 cornerback Stephon Gilmore is also on the active roster as he recovers from a broken wrist.
