Ross was signed Tuesday, BuffaloBills.com reports.
Ross in an undrafted receiver (2013) that's floated around several practice squads before landing a return role with Washington in 2015. While he'll be a longshot to make the team, the Bills decided they'd rather give a look to a healthy speed guy than an unhealthy one, as Kolby Listenbee (pelvis) was let go in the swap. Ross's best bet to land a spot would be to beat out Brandon Tate for a return role, no easy task considering Tate is one of the league's better return specialists.
Ross was waived by the Redskins on Thursday.
With Dashaun Phillips being signed to the active roster Thursday, Ross was released in order to clear a spot on the 53-man roster. Ross recorded just one reception for eight yards in five games with the Redskins this season. That said, Ross' abilities in the return game could make him a targeted commodity among teams looking for late-season special teams help.
Ross earned himself a spot on the 53-man roster thanks in part to his versatility and ability to play multiple positions. He may not see many targets in the passing game but could rack up kick return yards, making him a deep option in leagues that award such stats.
Ross snagged two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in Wednesday's 20-13 preseason win over the Buccaneers.
Ross made a push for a spot on the 53-man roster on Wednesday night, scoring one of Washington's two touchdowns. The wideout finds himself on the roster bubble but a spot may emerge, with Josh Doctson (Achilles) beginning the season on the PUP list and Jamison Crowder (knee) not at full health.
