Buffalo Bills Confirm RB Johnny White Has Signed

Earlier today, we speculated that running back Johhny White (North Carolina) had signed his first NFL contract when he announced on Twitter that it was the "happiest day of his life". The Buffalo Bills have confirmed that he indeed signed his first NFL contract this morning.

The team also confirmed the signings of first-round pick Marcell Dareus and fourth-round safety Da'Norris Searcy in a news release.

White will battle to find a spot on the roster which is now loaded with talent in the backfield. Fred Jackson will get the majority of the carries while last year's top pick, C.J. Spiller, is sure to get his fair share of touches in his second season. Buffalo also signed free agent Brad Smith who will split time between the backfield and wide receiver. Special teams coach Bruce DeHaven will likely find a role for the former Tar Heel.

With the three rookie signings today, Buffalo now has seven of their nine draft picks under contract and at St. John Fisher College. Second-round pick Aaron Williams and third-round pick Kelvin Sheppard are the only remaining unsigned rookies.

The team's first practice is at 3:30 this afternoon after moving in and physicals this morning along with some positional meetings.
