On Tuesday the Buffalo Bills signed veteran punter Jon Ryan to a one-year deal. 

Ryan spent 10 seasons with the Seattle Seahawks but was released by his former team earlier in the week. According to reports, Ryan requested a release after the team drafted a new punter in April. 

During his 10-year career, Ryan has averaged 44.7 yards per punt and added 311 punts downed inside the 20-yard line. 

Ryan becomes the second punter on the Bills roster along with Colton Schmidt, who has spent the last four seasons in Buffalo.
