WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Jay Ross, a former New Hanover Wildcat football star, has been called back by the Buffalo Bills.
Ross, who was cut by the team two weeks ago, re-signed with the squad Tuesday.
A spot opened on the Bills' roster when defensive lineman Alex Carrington was placed on injured reserve Monday.
WECT reached out to Ross on Facebook Tuesday evening.
"I don't really have any comments but just saying thanks for everyone always being positive and supporting my dreams," Ross said.
The defensive lineman is expected to rejoin his team this week after spending time in Wilmington with his family and new baby girl.
Ross was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New Orleans Saints in 2010. He played college football at East Carolina University.
