The agent for Buffalo Bills rookie tight end Shawn Nelson is confirming that his client and the Bills have agreed to terms on a four-year deal. Terms of the deal, as per club policy, have not been disclosed.
Nelson's (eventual) signing means that four Bills rookies remain unsigned on the eve of the opening practice of training camp. Bills officials and player agents are expected to work late into the night to try to get DE Aaron Maybin, OG Eric Wood, FS Jairus Byrd and OG Andy Levitre into camp on time. Right now, it is a virtual certainty that Maybin will miss the start of camp; the odds are against signing Wood by tomorrow morning as well.
A speedy, talented receiving threat, Nelson is expected to see time at both tight end and receiver in camp.
