Over the years, plenty of accomplished basketball players have become more than accomplished football players.  Specifically at tight end.

The Buffalo Bills could be considering doing the same thing.

According to WKBW-TV in Buffalo, the Bills will work out Canisius basketball player Chris Manhertz.  He has never played a single down of football.

Manhertz (6’6″, 235 pounds) appeared in 34 games as a senior at Canisius.  He averaged 8.4 points and 6.9 rebounds per game.

It’s believed the Bills are interested in Manhertz as a tight end.

    Yeah, he’s too big to play guard.

    If he can average 8.4 ppg and pull down 6.9 rebounds per game in the NFL he’ll make everyone forget about Anthony Gates.

    If he’s a high character guy, Kevin Costner will draft him with the overall number 1 pick.

    Why him and not others? If they haven’t played any Football, I think it a big reach….

    Great name.

    Manuel needs big targets to throw to since he isn’t the most accurate passer so if this guy can run and catch then he would be a nice addition to the team.

    The Bills shouldn’t be allowed to make any more transactions until the team moves.

    Hey, did you guys know Jimmy Graham played basketball?!

    The most surprising thing here: He didn’t play at Syracuse.

    This confirms my belief they will draft Eric Ebron or Austin Seferian-Jenkins.

    They are looking for an athletic TE.

    I have had the pleasure of watching Chris grow as an athlete since his early high school days. As a senior in high school he was invited to play in Germany during a school break- Manhertz in Manheim! He represented the U.S. well. He is a dedicated TEAM player. He works hard to better himself to be the best that he can be for the success of the team. He is a respectful and humble young man. Are those enough reasons “why him?” I think so…….
