Ed Wang was the first Chinese-American player drafted by an NFL team. Now, he’s the first Chinese-American draft pick to sign a contract.
Per a league source, the fifth-rounder from Virginia Tech (140th overall) agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills.
Also, Wang’s name was dropped earlier this week by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton during a speech she gave at the USA Pavilion in Shanghai.
“It felt good,” Wang said. “She’s a very important person, and so for someone like
that to talk about me, it just feels good.”
