Winters was released by the New York Jets on Sunday after being a starter on their offensive line since 2013. The 29-year-old has started 79 games over the course of his seven-year career, all spent with the Jets.
The Bills roster was set at the maximum limit of 81, and general manager Brandon Beane said on Sunday that in order to bring any players in for visits, the team must have an open roster spot in order to host any free agents.
In another roster move made by the Bills on Tuesday, the team activated defensive tackle Vincent Taylor from the reserve/COVID-19 list. To make room on the 81-man roster, the team released linebacker Mike Bell.
