Bills test reporters and broadcasters everywhere with practice squad move

By Jay Skurski

Say it with me now ... ee-PO-mo-sahh ig-bi-NO-sun.

That's how you pronounce the name of the Buffalo Bills' newest practice squad addition. Ikponmwosa Igbinosun is a 23-year-old defensive end from Southern Connecticut State. Igbinosun, 6-foot-3 and 286 pounds, signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers as an undrafted free agent in 2012 before being released prior to the start of the regular season. He spent a portion of his rookie year with Dallas before being released prior to the start of the regular season. 

During his collegiate career, he was a first-team All-Northeast 10 Conference selection as a senior after making 58 tackles, 7 sacks, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries in 10 starts.

To make room for Igbinosun, the Bills released defensive end Adewale Ojomo from the practice squad.
