Bills sign seventh-round TE Chris Gragg

Posted May 9, 2013

TE Chris Gragg signed his rookie deal with the Bills on Thursday.

The day before Bills rookie minicamp opens Buffalo’s front office began the process of signing their draft choices. The club signed seventh-round pick Chris Gragg shortly after he arrived at One Bills Drive on Thursday afternoon.

Gragg, a tight end from Arkansas, was taken with the Bills seventh-round pick acquired in the trade with the St. Louis Rams on Day 1 of the NFL draft.

“It feels like the entire draft process is finally over,” Gragg told “I’m back to being a football player now. I’ve been talking to the coaches and they seem very excited for me to be here and I’m ready to get to work.”

Limited to just five games his senior season with a knee injury Gragg (6’3” 244) still finished his Razorbacks career with 72 catches for 1,003 yards and seven touchdowns.

Though he missed the last eight games of his college career he recovered and impressed NFL talent evaluators at the NFL Combine with a 4.5 40-time, 37 and a half inch vertical leap and 10-foot five-inch broad jump.

The Bills draft choices will be on the practice field Friday for the start of rookie minicamp.
