Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp is this weekend, and with players’ arrival at One Bills Drive, many of the team’s NFL Draft picks are officially signing their first NFL contracts. The Bills also added a bunch of undrafted free agents and players with limited experience who are eligible for the minicamp this weekend.
Earlier in the week, the Bills signed second- and seventh-round selections DL Carlos Basham and Jack Anderson. On Thursday, three more NFL Draft choices inked on the line; fifth-round pick OT Tommy Doyle, and sixth-round picks WR Marquez Stevenson and CB Rachad Wildgoose. Doyle might have endeared himself to Bills fans forever by signing in his full uniform:

That leaves just a few draft choices who haven’t signed; first-round DE Greg Rousseau, third-round OT Spencer Brown, and sixth-round S Damar Hamlin. It wouldn’t be surprising to see them sign Friday or this weekend.
In addition to the NFL Draft picks that were signed, the Bills added six undrafted free agents. (More on each of them later today.)
- CB Olaijah Griffin
- CB Nick McCloud
- TE Quintin Morris
- S Tariq Thompson
- OL Syrus Tuitele
- WR Tre Walker
Buffalo also signed two young players to one-year contracts. We told you about Steven Gonzalez yesterday and the Bills also re-signed LB Mike Bell. Bell had a tryout in Buffalo following the 2019 NFL Draft, where he wasn’t selected after playing safety at Fresno State. He signed in April 2020 after that year’s NFL Selection Meeting but did not make the roster.
