Bills add wide receiver Chase Claypool on 1-year deal

BUFFALO, N.Y. — The Bills continued to add to their wide receiver room after the draft, signing Chase Claypool to a one-year deal, the team announced Friday morning.

The 6-foot-4, 238-pound receiver brings veteran depth to a receiver room that is being reconstructed after Stefon Diggs was traded, Gabe Davis left in free agency, and Keon Coleman was drafted 33rd overall. Claypool ran a 4.42 40-yard dash at the NFL combine in 2020.

Claypool, 25, has been with three teams over the past two years, most recently with the Miami Dolphins after the Chicago Bears traded him in October. Early in the 2023 season, Claypool expressed frustration with how he was being used in the Bears’ offense, and he was then inactive for multiple games before being traded to Miami, where he caught four passes in nine games.

He was acquired by the Bears in a trade from the Pittsburgh Steelers the previous year. Claypool spent the first two full seasons of his career in Pittsburgh after he was drafted in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft out of Notre Dame.

The Bills also signed linebacker Deion Jones and defensive end Dawuane Smoot to one-year deals.
