The Buffalo Bills have signed veteran punter Sam Martin to a one-year contract, the team announced Wednesday.
Buffalo had been looking for a punter after the team released rookie Matt Araiza. The 2022 sixth-round pick is accused in a civil lawsuit of gang-raping a minor during an off-campus party at San Diego State University last year.
Martin was released by the Denver Broncos earlier this week after he refused to take a pay cut. The nine-year veteran averaged 46 yards over 67 punts for the Broncos last season.
The 32-year-old was originally selected in the fifth round of the 2013 NFL draft by the Detroit Lions.
To make room on the roster, wide receiver Marquez Stevenson was placed on injured reserve.
