The Buffalo Bills signed all four of their exclusive rights free agents on Monday as players returned for OTAs, with contracts to tight end Nick O’Leary, cornerback Lafayette Pitts, defensive end Eddie Yarbrough, and tight end Logan Thomas.
The decision to tender all four players was unsurprising, considering each player is young and under team control for very cheap. O’Leary is the most decorated of the four players, having had his best professional season in 2017. He caught 22 passes on 32 targets, amassing 322 yards and 2 touchdowns.
Yarbrough arrived last season after spending time on the Denver Broncos’ practice squad. The 24-year old had 34 combined tackles and 1 sack in his work as a rotational defensive end.
Pitts appeared in 10 games with the Bills after beginning the season with the Jacksonville Jaguars. The 5’11” corner entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2016 with the Miami Dolphins. He has one tackle on his ledger, made last season with Buffalo.
Thomas, the former-quarterback-turned-tight-end project, looks to maintain his roster spot as Buffalo’s third tight end on game days. He caught 7 passes for 67 yards and his first career touchdown last season.
