The Bills completed their first week of OTA practices and also completed a contract agreement with their first-round draft choice. Tre’Davious White signed his rookie contract Thursday not long after practiced wrapped up on the field.

White, who was taken by Buffalo with the 27th overall pick, was glad to have his rookie contract out of the way.

“I can’t tell you all how grateful I am for the opportunity, how happy I am for myself and my family,” White said. “I’m looking forward to earning all my stripes and earning the respect of the vets and of the guys that are here.”

White, has been rotating in with fellow cornerbacks Ronald Darby and Kevon Seymour with the starting defensive unit. The LSU product has also been in the rotation for punt return duties with veteran Brandon Tate.

“I just feel I can bring some depth to this secondary,” White said. “We already have some great players, some players that I’ve watched for some time in Micah Hyde – I watched him when he was in Green Bay. I’ve watched a lot of (Ronald) Darby when I was in college and he was at Florida State. He was another guy. And then we have Jordan Poyer here too. There’s definitely some guys that I’ve watched at LSU and I’m looking forward to just coming in and adding to the great players that we already have.”

With White signing, only second-round picks, Zay Jones, Dion Dawkins and fifth-round pick Nate Peterman remain unsigned.
