Towbridge, 24, was with the Bills for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. He spent 2017 on injured reserve and 2018 on the team's practice squad. He made appearances in last year's preseason, including a touchdown grab from former Bills quarterback A.J. McCarron in a 28-27, Week 4 comeback win over the Chicago Bears.

As for Deane, he was signed by the Bills last month. He was initially signed by the Seattle Seahawks as an undrafted rookie, but was released on May 13 before being picked up by Buffalo just over a week later.
