Buffalo NFL Draft and Free Agency Week In Review

The Weekend saw three of the five Bulls being watched land with an NFL team. Two of trio, Matt Weiser and John Kling, ended up being signed as free agents with the Chargers and Bears respectively. Joe Licata, Buffalo's Quarterback signed up for a tryout with the Buffalo Bills.

Weiser's Saturday was the most interesting.

Shortly after the draft the Washington Redskins extended an invitation of a tryout date with Weiser. If he had tried out and made the cut he would then get a free agent contract.

Before the night was over, however, the San Diego Chargers offered the Tight End a contract without having to go through a tryout. San Diego is one of the teams Weiser had a workout with in the weeks leading up to the draft. The other team being the San Francisco 49ers.

No Bull being drafted this season breaks a three year streak and making it just the second time since 2008 in which Buffalo did not send a player to the NFL via the draft, the other year was 2012.

Two players who many are still watching are Buffalo Punter Tyler Grassman and defensive back Okezie Alozie. Alozie's pro day numbers were impressive and looks to fill one of two roles on an NFL team. He can be a linebacker or safety but is a far better fit as a safety.
