The Buffalo Bills have signed defensive end Ian Seau, the nephew of late Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau.
Signing with Buffalo represents a second chance for Seau, who spent training camp and the preseason last summer with the Los Angeles Rams before being cut prior to the start of the season. He rejoins Bills defensive line coach Mike Waufle, who coached the Rams’ defensive line last season.
Seau’s signing comes after the Bills added nine players on Friday. The team now has 70 players on its 90-man roster as coach Sean McDermott prepares for an on-field minicamp next week.
Ian Seau signed with the Rams as an undrafted free agent last May from the University of Nevada, where he combined for 18 sacks in 25 games over his final two years.
Seau’s uncle, Junior Seau, was a 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker who played from 1990 through 2009. He was posthumously inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015.
