Cyril Richardson signs rookie deal with Buffalo Bills

Brett Carlsen

The Bills now have five of their seven drafted rookies under contract, with only their top two picks - receiver Sammy Watkins and tackle Cyrus Kouandjio - to go.

The Buffalo Bills announced on Friday that their fifth-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, Baylor guard Cyril Richardson, has signed his rookie contract.

Drafted at No. 153 overall, Richardson's contract will closely reflect that of 2013's No. 153 overall pick, Atlanta defensive end Stansly Maponga, who signed a four-year, $2.35 million contract with a $186,740 signing bonus last May.

One of the more decorated offensive linemen in college football in his career at Baylor, the 6'5", 329-pound guard fell in the draft thanks to a poor showing at the Senior Bowl in January. Though he played left guard (as well as left tackle for a year) in college, Richardson spent the team's rookie minicamp working at right guard.

Richardson is the fifth of Buffalo's seven draft picks to sign their rookie deals, joining third-round linebacker Preston Brown, fourth-round cornerback Ross Cockrell, seventh-round linebacker Randell Johnson, and seventh-round tackle Seantrel Henderson. That leaves just two rookies left to sign: No. 4 overall pick Sammy Watkins, and the likely new starting right tackle, Cyrus Kouandjio.
