Ray-Ray McCloud is joining the Buffalo Bills’ practice squad.
McCloud, 23, was originally drafted by Buffalo in the sixth round of the 2018 NFL Draft (Pick 167). He appeared in 10 games as a rookie and recorded five receptions for 36 yards while rushing for four yards on two carries. He also saw some time as a return man in Buffalo. McCloud returned four punts for 20 yards and one kick for 18 yards.
McCloud had a quiet rookie season, but showed significant growth during the spring and summer at the wide receiver position. Despite his improved play, McCloud was not able to make Buffalo’s 53-man roster this summer. The team intended to sign McCloud to their practice squad if he cleared waivers, but he ended up being claimed by the Carolina Panthers.
