WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- For the first time in his career, Jay Ross will start the season on a NFL roster.

The New Hanover High School and East Carolina grad announced the news on Twitter this afternoon that he has made the opening day roster for the Buffalo Bills. Teams have to make their final roster cuts to get down to 53 players by tomorrow.

"God is so good to me i thank him everyday for his many blessings," Ross Tweeted.

Ross has spent the preseason second on the depth chart at nose tackle for the Bills.

For the last three years, Ross has been primarily a practice squad player with the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers and Bills. He received a Super Bowl ring for being part of the Packers' championship run in 2010. He was on the Bills' active roster for one game last year.

The Bills open the season at home Sept. 8 against the New England Patriots.
