Buffalo Bills sign 2nd-round pick Kouandjio
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills have their entire seven-player rookie draft class now under contract after signing offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.
Kouandjio is an Alabama product who was drafted in the second round, 44th overall. He’s listed at 6 foot 7 and 322 pounds, and will be given an opportunity to immediately compete for a starting job at right tackle.
He started 27 of 35 games at college, and was part of an offense that allowed just 10 sacks during the regular season last year.
Kouandjio has already spent time practicing with the starting unit during the first two sessions of Buffalo’s voluntary minicamp practices this week.
In a separate move on Thursday, the Bills released offensive lineman Randy Colling, who had been signed to a reserve-future contract in January.
