Bills signed WR Naaman Roosevelt.

Just three days after getting waived by the Lions, Roosevelt gets scooped up in a familiar place. Roosevelt played his college ball at the University of Buffalo, and has made his only NFL appearances as a Bill (16 games between 2010-11). He'll be on the outside of the roster bubble looking in.

Lions waived WR Naaman Roosevelt.

They saw more upside in Corey Fuller and Kevin Ogletree.

Lions signed WR Naaman Roosevelt.

Roosevelt attended the Lions' voluntary minicamp earlier this week. He hasn't appeared in the NFL since 2011, but will add offseason receiver depth. 26-year-old Roosevelt will compete for a spot on Detroit's training camp roster.

Browns signed WR Naaman Roosevelt.

Roosevelt, 25, was out of the league last season. Prior to that, he caught 25 passes for 396 yards and one touchdown in two seasons with the Bills. Roosevelt will try to earn a spot at the bottom of the roster.

Ryan Fitzpatrick says Naaman Roosevelt has been "the man" so far in Bills training camp.

"All he does is get open and catch the ball; that's it," Fitzpatrick said. "He's always in the right spot at the right time. You always know what you're going to get from him. He's just Mr. Reliable." Per beat writer Mark Gaughan, Roosevelt has been "showing off his phenomenal hands," and "hauling in a good number of passes, mostly against backup defenders." Roosevelt is squarely on the roster bubble, but that won't last long if his impressive play carries over to preseason games.

Naaman Roosevelt caught three passes for 29 yards in the Week 17 loss to the Patriots.

Roosevelt fell behind Brad Smith and Derek Hagan on the depth chart. His second season in Buffalo ends with 16 catches for 257 yards and one touchdown in 10 games. Roosevelt will have to battle for a roster spot in 2012.

Bills declared Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder) inactive for Week 15 against the Dolphins.

Roosevelt has fallen behind Brad Smith, so he's a healthy scratch. Scott Chandler (ankle) is also inactive, as expected. The rest of the Bills' inactives: DB Josh Nesbitt, OL Sam Young, DL Jarron Gilbert, WR Kamar Aiken and TE Fendi Onobun.

Bills declared WR Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder) active for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Roosevelt is ready to serve as the No. 4 receiver. Stevie Johnson and Brad Smith will start out wide, with David Nelson in the slot. The Bills will be without K Rian Lindell (shoulder), giving Dave Rayner another shot. The rest of their inactives: WR Derek Hagan, WR Kamar Aiken, T Sam Young, DE Kyle Moore, LB Antonio Coleman and S George Wilson.

Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder) returned to Bills practice Wednesday, albeit on a limited basis.

It's a big step after Roosevelt failed to step on the practice field last week. If he's able to go again on Thursday, he'll likely be better than 50-50 to suit up against the Titans. Roosevelt still won't be a fantasy option.
Wed, Nov 30, 2011 02:13:00 PM

Bills coach Chan Gailey said Monday there's a "chance" WR Naaman Roosevelt returns for Week 13.

The Bills are majorly banged up at receiver, so Roosevelt will surely be pushed to return this week. If he's active, he'll likely line up opposite Stevie Johnson on the outside, leaving David Nelson in the slot. His status will be updated on Wednesday.
Mon, Nov 28, 2011 04:04:00 PM

The Bills have ruled out WR Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder), SS George Wilson (neck), and K Rian Lindell (shoulder) for Week 12 against the Jets.

Recently promoted Kamar Aiken is expected to dress as the No. 5 receiver behind Brad Smith and Ruvell Martin. Still learning the offense, Derek Hagan is believed to be sixth on the depth chart. Rookie Da'Norris Searcy racked up a team-high 11 tackles starting in place of Wilson last week.

Bills WR Naaman Roosevelt (shoulder) missed practice again on Thursday.

Roosevelt's injury could be a reason why the Bills added two receivers to the roster this week instead of just one to compensate for Donald Jones' loss. Roosevelt won't be a fantasy option for Week 12 at the Jets regardless.
Fri, Nov 25, 2011 08:44:00 AM

Bills WR Naaman Roosevelt did not participate in practice on Wednesday.

The Bills have yet to provide a reason for his absence. In line to play outside (David Nelson in the slot) with Donald Jones out for the season, Roosevelt could be worth a look in deeper PPR leagues if he's able to suit up this week.
Wed, Nov 23, 2011 03:01:00 PM

Bills slot WR Naaman Roosevelt caught one pass for a 60-yard touchdown against the Giants in Week 6.

Roosevelt went untouched through the heart of the Giants defense for a 60-yard catch-and-run to give the Bills a 14-7 lead at the end of the first quarter. He saw just one other target, which is hardly a comforting thought heading into the Week 7 bye. He's merely a stash in fantasy leagues.
