Ramses Barden WR BUF 3 Months

Bills signed WR Ramses Barden, LB Willie Jefferson, FS Jajuan Harley, WR Chris Summers and LB Nathan Williams to reserve/futures contracts.

A former third-round pick of the Giants, Barden missed the entire 2013 season after being released in September with an injury settlement. He'll compete for a roster spot with the Bills as a red-zone specialist. Jefferson appeared in six games with the Texans as an undrafted free agent.

The 85th pick in the 2009 draft, Barden ran like there were cement blocks attached his his feet, which hurt his NFL prospects. He could still generate some free-agent interest from teams interested in red-zone specialists.

Giants WR Ramses Barden's one-year contract gave the team a "minimum salary benefit" because it's worth just $780,000.

Barden received a base salary of $715,000 with a $65,000 signing bonus. Because of the minimum salary and a signing bonus worth equal to or less than $65K, the Giants can carry Barden at just $620,000 in salary cap cost, per NFL rules. It's a reminder that Barden is not highly regarded around the league. He lasted over two months on the open market before re-signing on the cheap.

He'll be back at the minimum salary and as the No. 5 receiver.
