Lee, a depth tight end who has just one reception on the season, was let go Saturday, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports.
The Bills had a bigger need in their secondary with two regulars being very questionable to go this week, so they had to make room for defensive back Dean Marlowe on the roster. It wouldn't be a surprise to see Lee resurface with the team once other players heal up.
The Bills have claimed Lee off waivers from the Lions, Vic Carucci of The Buffalo News reports.
Lee didn't do enough in the preseason to convince the Lions to keep around a fourth tight end, but the 2015 undrafted free agent from Bowie State will do just that with the Bills, where he apparently sits behind Charles Clay, Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas.
Lee was waived by the Lions on Saturday, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.
It seems the Lions will roll with three tight ends entering the regular season, where Lee is among the odd men out. Solid in the run game, Lee could be a candidate for the practice squad.
Lee logged 13 offensive snaps during the Lions' preseason loss to the Patriots on Friday.
Lee also saw 10 snaps on special teams. He appears to be on the outside looking in as far as earning a roster spot goes.
Lee didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Kyle Meinke of MLive.com reports.
The reason behind Lee's absence Wednesday wasn't revealed, but he joined Eric Ebron, Cole Wick and Tim Wright on the sidelines for the session. Given his positioning on the depth chart, a swift return to practice would certainly benefit him.
Lee has signed a reserve/future contract with the Lions, MLive.com reports.
Lee spent the first eight weeks of the 2016 season in Detroit after spending the summer in Chicago and logged over 100 snaps, primarily in a blocking role. He's set to square off with Matthew Mulligan and Khari Lee for depth chart slotting behind Eric Ebron and Clay Harbor.
Lee was waived by the Lions on Tuesday.
Lee was released by his second team this season after the Bears parted ways with the tight end before the beginning of the regular season. In eight games with the Lions, he failed to record a single statistic, playing in a limited role on offense and special teams. He'll now look to find his way onto another roster in need of tight end depth.
Lee was claimed off waivers by the Lions on Tuesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Lee was waived by Chicago on Sunday after the team picked up tight end Logan Paulsen. Aside from backing up Eric Ebron, it remains unclear how Lee will fit in with current tight end bunch.
Lee was waived by the Bears on Sunday, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Lee was waived in order to make room for recently acquired Logan Paulsen. Assuming he clears waivers, many close to the Bears believe that the 24-year-old tight end will be re-signed to the team's practice squad.
Lee caught his only pass target for three yards Thursday against the Browns.
As usual, Lee was used primarily as a blocker, and he had very little opportunity as a receiving option. Although he'll technically be listed frequently as the team's starter, he'll continue to have his biggest value to the Bears as essentially an extra offensive tackle.
Lee failed to catch his only target in Sunday's loss to the Redskins.
Lee served as the Bears' No. 2 tight end for the contest, after Martellus Bennett (ribs) was placed on season-ending injured reserve. Despite the upgrade, Lee failed to see much involvement in the offense, which will likely remain the case for what's left of the season.
The Texans traded tight end Khari Lee to the Bears on Wednesday, the Bears announced. In exchange for Lee, the Texans will receive a sixth-round draft pick in the 2017 draft.
