CB Mario Butler, RB Mike Gillislee, WR Greg Salas and P Colton Schmidt were all re-signed by the Bills.

Butler saw significant playing time in Week 17 against the Jets and finished the game with two passes defensed. The cornerback's biggest pass defensed came late in a game on a long pass to Kenbrell Thompkins. Butler had a strong training camp for Buffalo in 2015 and could realistically be the team's fourth cornerback in 2016.

Gillislee played five games with the Bills this season. In his time with Buffalo, Gillislee racked up 267 yards and three touchdowns on 47 carries, a 5.7 YPC average. In 2016, Gillislee will get the opportunity to be the team's third string running back behind LeSean McCoy and Karlos Williams. 

Salas appeared in two games with Buffalo at the end of the season. He saw significant reps on Sunday and caught three passes for 41 yards. Salas will get the opportunity to compete for a job at training camp with the Bills.

Last, Colton Schmidt signed an extension with the team. The punter had a strong season with Buffalo. Schmidt averaged 46.3 yards per punt this season with the Bills on 82 punts.
