One Buffalo: Bills sign two former Bulls

Just minutes after the end of the 2019 NFL Draft, the Buffalo Bills signed UB’s quarterback Tyree Jackson as an undrafted free agent.  The quarterback who played his college ball just 20 minutes away from One Bills Drive, will now have a chance to compete for the No.-2 quarterback job behind Josh Allen.


OPINION

Undrafted

“And with the 254th pick, the Arizona Cardinals select Caleb Wilson, a tight end from UCLA.” That was it. After three days and 254 picks, not one player from the University at Buffalo was drafted into the NFL.
