A day after creating an opening on their 53-man roster, Buffalo quickly filled the vacancy signing OT J.J. Unga off of the Baltimore Ravens practice squad.
Unga (6’5” 320) signed with the Ravens as an undrafted college free agent this past May. He was released during final cuts, but was promptly signed to Baltimore’s practice squad where he has spent the entire 2013 season.
The offensive tackle played his college ball at Division II Midwestern State, where he appeared in 20 games making 10 starts. He lined up at both right and left tackle in his college career.
Unga earned first-team All-Lone Star Conference honors as a senior in 2012. He will wear No. 64.

Marrone also discussed the reasoning behind bringing in the offensive lineman.
"I think what we like to do is build a bigger team," he said. "My philosophy has always been that this is a big man's game. I think that when we have the opportunity to better ourselves, we have to go ahead and do that no matter what time of year it is. I think players know that and coaches know that, and that's what we're trying to do."
