Chris Gragg contract: rookie signs with Buffalo Bills

US PRESSWIRE

The Bills have inked their first 2013 NFL Draft pick, agreeing to terms Thursday night with seventh-round tight end Chris Gragg.

The Buffalo Bills on Thursday night announced that they had signed their first 2013 NFL Draft pick: Chris Gragg, the Arkansas tight end selected in the seventh round, signed on the dotted line.

Buffalo does not disclose the terms of these deals, but thanks to the rookie wage scale, we can make a reasonable guess as to what Gragg's contract looks like. The No. 222 overall pick will almost certainly sign a contract very close to the contract that last year's No. 222 overall pick, Dallas linebacker Caleb McSturdy, signed: four years, $2.16 million with a $59,400 signing bonus.

Gragg, 22, missed all but five games of his senior season at Arkansas with a knee injury. He'd caught 22 passes for 289 yards with three touchdowns in the team's first five games, and was on track to blow his previous career highs in catches, yardage and touchdowns out of the water. All told, he ended his career with 72 catches, 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns.

In Buffalo, the 6'3", 244-pound pass catcher will compete for a role as a receiving tight end in Doug Marrone and Nathaniel Hackett's offense, and could be aided by the continued recovery from off-season ACL surgery for starter Scott Chandler.
