Reed in camp, Germany speaks about being waived

The Bills' biggest move on a day full of moves was agreeing to terms with Josh Reed, a second-round draft pick, on a four-year contract that will pay him about $3.2 million with a $1.7-million signing bonus.


Reed arrived in time for the afternoon practice. He ran on to the practice field, said hello to some teammates and immediately caught a punt.

His presence will be important on a team running short of wide receivers. They waived Reggie Germany and Clarence Coleman because they failed their physicals; Reggie Allen is rehabbing an injury suffered in the NFL Europe League, and Jeremy McDaniel is recovering from hernia surgery, but did practice with the team …

In addition, Buffalo placed right guard Jerry Ostroski and tight end Jay Riemersma on the physically unable to perform list, and quarterback David Dinkins on the reserve-non-football injury list.

Ostroski and Riemersma can be activated at any time. Dinkins is expected to be out up to two months. He was scheduled for arthroscopic surgery to repair a hole in his heart. Germany and Coleman could be claimed by another team within 24 hours. They could play for that other team, but not for the Bills this season. Buffalo could place them on injured reserve, or waive them once they pass a physical.

Despite being on waivers, Germany watched both of the day's practices. He wouldn't comment on being waived or failing his physical. He did say he was "ahead of schedule" in his rehab and that he would remain in camp unless another team claimed him.

McDaniel showed few ill effects when he ran patterns. He beat free safety Tony Driver and undrafted free-agent cornerback Daryon Brutley for a deep catch.
