At the beginning of rookie minicamp Bills head coach Doug Marrone said he didn’t care how the players got to the team’s rookie minicamp. He cared more about what they did on the field and in the classroom.
Over the course of those three days one of the four tryout players impressed Marrone and his coaching staff enough to earn a contract. Buffalo signed wide receiver Caleb Holley less than a day after the Bills rookie minicamp concluded.
Holley (6-4, 200), finished up his college career at East Central University in Oklahoma after spending his first two collegiate seasons at San Francisco City college. The Anchorage, Alaska native rolled up 970 receiving yards his senior season with the Tigers to set a school mark and earn second team All-Great American Conference honors. He also had 55 catches and nine touchdowns. Holley additionally set a school mark for single-game receiving yards when he put up 224 last October in a game against Southern Nazarene.
After Sammy Watkins, Holley was one of the more consistent players during the team's rookie minicamp demonstrating good separation on routes and reliable hands.
