Bills sign rookie wideout Marcus Easley

The Buffalo Bills have a glaring hole at the wide receiver position opposite Lee Evans, and now have agreed to terms with a possible solution.

According to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times, the Bills have signed fourth-round pick Marcus Easley to a four-year deal that includes a $520,000 signing bonus.  Like most rookies, Easley’s four base salaries figure to add up to $1.79 million, bringing the minimum value of the rookie contract to roughly $2.31 million.
Just a one-year starter at UConn and a former walk-on, Easley exploded for an 18.6 yards-per-catch average with eight touchdowns as a senior in Huskies coach Randy Edsall’s run-heavy offense.  Easley ran a 4.42 forty at the Scouting Combine and goes 6-foot-3, 210 pounds.  
In March, we rated Easley the 12th best receiver in the draft and predicted he’d go 92nd overall.  He was the 14th wideout drafted, and went 107th overall.

  1. Evan, you forgot the primary rule of PFT posting. With that kind of name, we all want to know if the Bills signed him easily (or, maybe not).

  2. Reports from Buffalo is that this kid is making tons of big plays at OTAs. Keep an eye on him.

  3. @champ1315 – that prediction may not be as zany as you think… I was praying for Miami to draft this guy
