With the Buffalo Bills’ 2019 NFL Draft class in Orchard Park this weekend for rookie minicamp, the majority of the group is now under contract as they arrive and sign deals, the team announced.
Defensive tackle Ed Oliver, offensive tackle Cody Ford, running back Devin Singletary, linebacker Vosean Joseph, safety JaQuan Johnson, defensive end Darryl Johnson Jr., and tight end Tommy Sweeney have all signed their rookie deals. Only tight end Dawson Knox, selected in the third round, has yet to sign. It won’t be long before the full set is complete.
According to Aaron Wilson’s tweet and the Houston Chronicle, Oliver’s fully guaranteed contract will pay him $19.675 million—with the Bills capable of exercising the fifth-year option on the ninth overall pick. He received a $12.329 million signing bonus.
