Bills sign Brown and Moats

The Bills completed the final two steps in getting the back half of their 2010 draft class under contract as sixth-round pick Arthur Moats and seventh-round pick Levi Brown both signed their rookie contracts Thursday morning at One Bills Drive.

"I'm glad it's done right now," said Moats. "I didn't have to wait that long for it. So now it's just straight football."

Moats was the first of two sixth-round picks by the Bills in late April and has been spending most of his time at inside linebacker after playing defensive end at James Madison University.

Brown, a quarterback, was the first of two seventh-round draft choices with offensive lineman Kyle Calloway being the team's other seventh rounder. Calloway signed on Tuesday.

"It feels good to get it over with and get all that stuff out of the way," said Brown. "Now it's just football from here on out."

The Bills had Brown highly rated going into the draft. He's part of the team's open competition for the starting quarterback job, but has not been afforded as many snaps as the three veteran signal callers in OTA and minicamp practices.

Buffalo now has more than half of their draft class under contract. Only the team's top four picks remain unsigned with more than a month before training camp opens.

To make room on the roster for the two signed draft choices, the Bills waived DL Will Croner and G Jorge Guerra. Both players were undrafted rookie free agents signed in May.
