Pitts signed a one-year contract with the Bills on Tuesday, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports. Pitts played in all 16 games for the Bills in 2018, playing primarily special teams and totaling just nine tackles. He'll enter his age-26 season in 2019 and look to earn a role as a backup secondary player once again.
Pitts (concussion) practiced fully for the first time all week Friday and does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Pitts' presence will help the Bills' special teams units, but the four-year veteran is really just around for a depth role. Younger players have passed him on the depth chart, and he hasn't taken an offensive snap all season.
Pitts missed Wednesday's practice after he suffered a concussion in Sunday's win over Jacksonville, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. Pitts hasn't seen a defensive snap since Week 3, so if he can't play this week against the Dolphins, it would mean more of a special teams adjustment in the lineup.
Pitts will not return to Sunday's game against the Jaguars after suffering a head injury. Pitts will be subject to the league's concussion protocol, and his absence will leave the Bills a bit thin at cornerback with Ryan Lewis (coach's decision) also sidelined.
Pitts was claimed off waivers by the Bills on Wednesday. Pitts spent the first seven weeks of the season as a special teams contributor for the Jaguars prior to being waived Tuesday. The 25-year-old will likely take on a similar role in Buffalo.
