    A pair of former Chicago Bears were involved in roster transactions on Sunday for the Buffalo Bills, as Sam Acho inked a contract with the team.

    Acho, who played for the Bears from 2015 to 2018, will move to defensive end for the Bills, according to the team. He registered 68 total tackles in four seasons in Chicago, defending three passes and forcing three fumbles in 51 games with the Bears.

    The veteran defender was released by the Bears earlier this season. He missed the final 12 games of the regular season with a torn pectoral muscle.

    Acho will replace a former Bears offensive lineman on the Bills’ roster, as the team announced it released guard Vlad Ducasse. The 31-year-old has made NFL stops in New York, Minnesota, Chicago, and Baltimore. He appeared in 15 games for the Bears during the 2015 season, starting in 11 of those contests.
