Felton, cut last week by the Bills, is about to be re-signed by the team, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Bills kept a younger (and cheaper) Glenn Gronkowski at fullback over Felton, but the team's run game struggled against the Ravens on Sunday and it looks like they want to bring Felton's veteran skills back to try and open up some more holes this week against the Jets. If the fullback position wasn't avoided by so many teams these days, a guy with Felton's football skills probably would have been snapped up by now, so the Bills should consider themselves lucky they're getting their guy back.

Felton has been released by the Bills, ESPN's Adam Scheffer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Felton was a pretty big favorite to land the fullback job, but in the end coach Rex Ryan decided he liked undrafted rookie Glenn Gronkowski better. While fullbacks are a dying breed in the NFL, there's still a pretty good chance Felton could get picked up by a team looking to open up some holes for an elite running back.

Felton will sign as a free agent with the Bills, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

Felton only had four rushing attempts with the Vikings last season and didn't have a single carry the two seasons before that. However, he was considered perhaps the best free agent fullback on the market and Bills coordinator Greg Roman favors a heavy run attack. That means LeSean McCoy may be the one picking up Felton from Buffalo International Airport this week.

Felton scored a touchdown on a fumble recovery in the end zone in Sunday's win over the Jets.

Charles Johnson fumbled the ball into the end zone and Felton recovered the ball. Felton didn't have a carry during the game and has three all season, so this isn't a sign he's a short-yardage option.

Felton had two carries for 21 yards in Sunday's loss to Buffalo.

Felton is barely getting on the field in offensive coordinator Norv Turner's offense, but he may be used more to provide blocking with Minnesota's offensive line struggling. However, he won't see many touches on offense.

Vikings re-signed FB Jerome Felton to a three-year, $7.5 million contract.

Felton was high on the Vikings' wish list, and they've gone all in to keep Adrian Peterson happy after trading Percy Harvin. Felton is one of the game's best lead-blockers.

The Star-Tribune expects the Vikings to lock up FB Jerome Felton before free agency opens.

This is a situation Adrian Peterson will be watching closely. Operating on a one-year "prove it" deal in 2012, Felton emerged as one of the game's best lead-blockers while helping pave the way for Peterson's remarkable 2,097-yard season. He'll have plenty of leverage in upcoming negotiations.
