ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) _ Receiver Jemalle Cornelius and
cornerback Reggie Lewis, both members of the national champion
Florida Gators, were among 15 undrafted rookie free agents signed
by the Buffalo Bills on Thursday.
Cornelius, listed at 5-11, 185 pounds, ranked third on the
Gators with 34 catches for 523 yards receiving. He also caught five
passes in Florida's blowout win over Ohio State in the national
championship game in January.
Lewis, 5-10, 196 pounds, picked off four passes _ third on the
team _ and made 27 tackles last season for Florida.
Buffalo also signed cornerback Duane Coleman out of Clemson in
an attempt to shore up the defensive backfield. After losing
cornerback Nate Clements to free agency, Buffalo didn't select a
cornerback in last weekend's NFL draft.
The moves are in addition to the seven players Buffalo selected
in the draft, a group led by California running back Marshawn
Lynch, who was picked 12th overall.
The Bills will open a three-day mini-camp next weekend.
