The Bills signed the veteran tight end on Thursday.
The Buffalo Bills signed tight end Matthew Mulligan on Thursday and released Merrill Noel.
Mulligan spent his first three seasons in the league (2009-2011) with the New York Jets with Bills head coach Rex Ryan. During his three seasons in New York, Mulligan caught six passes for 60 yards.
In 2012, Mulligan joined the St. Louis Rams and caught eight passes for 84 yards and a touchdown. Mulligan’s next stop was with the Patriots in 2013. He recorded 16 yards and one touchdown on two receptions.
Last season, Mulligan spent time with the Chicago Bears, Arizona Cardinals and Tennessee Titans. He didn’t record any receptions.
Buffalo has no shortage of tight ends on their roster. Currently, the team has Charles Clay, Nick O’Leary, MarQueis Gray, Chris Gragg, Clay Burton and Chris Manhertz at the position. Mulligan will face an uphill battle to stick with the Bills in 2015.
