Bills sign rookie OL Calloway, release DB Virgil

New, comments

The Buffalo Bills announced on Tuesday that the team had agreed to terms on a rookie contract with seventh-round pick Kyle Calloway. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, though Aaron Wilson reports that the deal is for $1.851 million over four years.

In order to free up room on the roster for Calloway, the team released undrafted rookie free agent defensive back Stephan Virgil.

Calloway (6'7", 315 pounds), chosen No. 216 overall in this past April's NFL Draft, has been getting reps at both right guard and right tackle in mini-camps and OTAs. Athletically limited but tough and dependable, he'll likely be counted on as depth on the right side as a rookie, though he'll have stiff competition to make the back end of Buffalo's roster.

The Bills have now signed three of their nine draft picks, previously agreeing to deals with OT Ed Wang and OLB Danny Batten. The team still has six more rookies to sign, and each time they do make a deal, they'll need to release a player in order to stay under the league-mandated roster limit of 80 players.
