WR Easley is latest Bills rookie to get a deal

Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times is reporting that the Buffalo Bills have signed fourth-round pick wide receiver Marcus Easley to a four-year deal. According to Wilson, the contract includes bonus money of $520,000.

Easley, a Connecticut product, was Buffalo's fourth-round selection in this past April's NFL Draft, selected No. 107 overall. Something of a one-year wonder as a collegian, Easley exploded onto the scene during his senior campaign, enjoying a 48-catch, 893-yard, 8-touchdown season while establishing himself as a legitimate NFL prospect. Prior to his final year at UConn, Easley had caught just five passes over three seasons.

The 6'2", 207-pound Easley has been making a good impression at OTAs despite his inexperience and raw technique, consistently beating Bills defenders over the top for long gains. He'll compete for playing time in a very green Bills receiving corps alongside the likes of James Hardy and Steve Johnson, among others.

Buffalo has now agreed to terms with six of its nine April draft picks. Only running back C.J. Spiller (No. 9 overall), nose tackle Torell Troup (No. 41) and defensive end Alex Carrington (No. 72) remain unsigned. When the signing of Easley becomes official, the Bills will need to free up a roster spot to make room for Easley's contract.
