Bills Draft Pick Chris Hairston Signs Contract, Per Report

New, comments

We now know of a second Buffalo Bills rookie that has signed a rookie contract, thanks to some top-notch sleuthing from Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County-Times.

Clemson offensive tackle Chris Hairston, Buffalo's fourth-round pick in April's draft, has agreed to a four-year contract, per Wilson. He becomes the second Bills rookie we know of that has signed a deal today, joining seventh-round pick Michael Jasper. Wilson reports that Hairston's deal includes a $415,900 signing bonus.

Hairston is being billed by the team as a right tackle, and one that could potentially earn a starting job somewhere down the line. The team likes his size (6'6", 326 pounds) and toughness on tape, but also stressed that he has a lot of work to do technically when he was selected earlier this year.

This (unofficial) signing brings Buffalo's unsigned rookie total down to seven. As for first-round pick Marcell Dareus, the players picked immediately before and after him, Von Miller and A.J. Green (respectively), have already signed contracts.
