Just like that, five of the eight 2013 NFL Draft picks made by the Buffalo Bills are under contract.
We knew about the signing of seventh-round tight end Chris Gragg last night and of fourth-round safety Duke Williams this morning; now the Bills have announced that wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, safety Jonathan Meeks and kicker Dustin Hopkins are signed, as well.
Goodwin, the team's third-round pick, will sign a contract in the neighborhood of four years and $2.78 million with a $590,000 signing bonus. Meeks, picked in the fifth round, will have a contract in the vicinity of four years and $2.21 million with a $200,000 signing bonus. Finally, the contract for the sixth-round pick, Hopkins, will be four years at $2.21 million with a $114,000 signing bonus.
That leaves just three Bills draft picks without deals: first-round pick quarterback E.J. Manuel and two second-round picks, wide receiver Robert Woods and linebacker Kiko Alonso. Once those three deals are ironed out - and once the team gets the Jairus Byrd situation settled - all 90 of the team's players will be under contract.
