NFL Mini Camp - Buffalo Bills invite former Bull Byron Mulkey

He gave it a shot last year and will get another this season.

He may not have earned a spot on the team last year but Byron Mulkey's 2012 performance in the Bills mini camp earned him another shot.

For the second year in a row the Wheatfield native has received a formal invitation to participate in the Buffalo Bills voluntary mini camp. He has not played in an official football game since his outstanding high school career at Niagara-Wheatfield High School but Mulkey has been working out for two years bulking up for football.

The move is not unheard of Antonio Gates from Kent and Western Michigan’s Joe Reitz have each made the move from Mid American Conference hoops star to an NFL roster.

The Mulkey Way?

While he returned to school to complete his master’s degree in higher education administration, he asked around to see if there was a way to scratch that itch, and found a supporter in his former head coach Reggie Witherspoon, who was able to get him in contact with the Bills. Though his former coaches at UB were surprised by the request, no one is counting him out. -- UB Athletics On hits shot last season

Mulkey played for Niagara-Wheatfield where he was a quarterback and defensive back . After earning an All-WNY honoree as a defensive back in 2005 he did get interest from the Ivy League. Princeton, Brown and Harvard all recruited him for football but with little in the way of financial assistance he decided to walk onto the basketball at Buffalo.
