Bills Draft Pick Michael Jasper Signed, Team Announces

The Buffalo Bills will take the field at St. John Fisher college for 2011 training camp in just over 48 hours. With that in mind, the team needed to get to work on signing their rookies, and began that process Thursday by announcing the signing of their second seventh-round pick, Bethel (TN) nose tackle Michael Jasper.

Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed. But as he's a seventh-round pick, y'all probably aren't overly interested in the financial terms, anyway.

Jasper, whom the team lists at 380 pounds, will enter training camp as the fourth of four nose tackles on the roster. There's no way he'll surpass either Kyle Williams or Torell Troup on the depth chart, but he's got a chance to nudge himself past Kellen Heard. It's expected that if Jasper doesn't make the team - a very distinct possibility - that the Bills will keep him on the practice squad this season, as they're highly intrigued by his outstanding athletic ability.

The Bills now have eight more draft picks to get under contract by Saturday afternoon, lest we get any official holdouts. These rookies can't afford that route this season.
