52 days after Cordy Glenn became the eighth of nine draft picks to sign with the Buffalo Bills, the team on Monday announced that third-round pick T.J. Graham has signed his rookie contract. The deal means that all 90 players on Buffalo's roster will be under contract and (hopefully) healthy for the start of training camp in just over two weeks' time.
Terms of the contract have not yet been disclosed (and won't be disclosed by the team), but it'll be a four-year deal and should cost the Bills around $3 million (or slightly less) over the life of the deal. Last year's third-round pick, Kelvin Sheppard - chosen one slot ahead of where Graham was picked this year - signed a four-year, $3 million contract.
Graham did not miss any practice time through May and June, even though he was without a contract. Now that he's signed, he won't miss any training camp practices as he makes a bid for serious playing time in an offense lacking a natural deep threat.
