The Buffalo Bills haven't been extremely busy signing players in the offseason, but, they have made sure to keep some of their own. The Bills added two more to the tally on Thursday night.

According to NFL.com, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson and offensive tackle Jordan Mills have signed on the dotted line, keeping them with the Bills for the 2016 season.

Hankerson, 27, ended the season with the Bills after playing most the season with the Atlanta Falcons, being released from Injured Reserve, and then spending a brief time with the New England Patriots. In eight games with Atlanta, Hankerson had 26 receptions for 327 yards and three touchdowns last season.

Before that, the wide receiver spent four seasons with Washington and made 14 starts over those four seasons.

Mills, 25, was one of three restricted free agents the Bills issued a tender to ahead of the start of free agency in early March. Mills reportedly signed his one-year, $1.671 million tender with the team to keep him in Buffalo this upcoming season.

Mills will be in a three-way battle for the starting right tackle competition with Seantrel Henderson and former second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio. Mills started the final five games of the 2015 season at right tackle for the Bills. He has 34 total starts over his three-year career.

The Bills have yet to officially announce the signings.
