Former Wyoming standout Eddie Yarbrough looks to catch on with Buffalo Bills
LARAMIE, Wyo. — Eddie Yarbrough is a versatile kind of guy. As a hybrid between the defensive end and outside linebacker positions, he takes pride in being able to add or lose weight as teams see fit.
“I’m one of those people that if you tell me hit a mark, eventually I’m going to hit it for you,” the former Wyoming defensive end said. “If you need me to be 265 by tomorrow, I’ll be 265. If you want me 245 by next week, I’ll get there. It’s really just pick your poison with me.”
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) — The Buffalo Bills have signed eight players, including cornerback Marcus Cromartie, who spent the previous three seasons with the San Francisco 49ers.
Cromartie had one start in 21 games for the 49ers and addresses Buffalo's backfield depth. The Bills lost starting cornerback Stephon Gilmore in free agency, and released top backup Nickell Robey-Coleman, who has signed with the Los Angeles Rams.
