Perhaps the most notable signing of this group of undrafted free agents is tackle Trey Adams, who was once seen as a decent prospect eligible for the 2020 NFL Draft. Adams spent five years playing at the University of Washington, where he appeared in 47 games for the Huskies. However, injuries were a significant factor in his draft stock to fall, including a torn ACL as a junior, as well as back concerns throughout the later portion of his collegiate career.

Where Adams gets some attention is his frame, as he stands very tall at 6-foot-8 and 311 pounds at the tackle position.

The Bills also signed a pair of other offensive linemen to free agent contracts, inking tackle Brandon Walton out of Florida Atlantic University and guard Marquel Harrell out of Auburn.

Another notable players signed by the Bills was full back / tight end Reggie Gilliam, who comes to Buffalo after spending his college career at the University of Toledo. In four years spent with the Rockets, Gilliam caught a total of 18 passes for 153 yards and three touchdowns.

Buffalo also added another offensive weapon with the signing of running back Antonio Williams out of North Carolina. Williams spent the first two years of his collegiate career at Ohio State before transferring to the Tar Heels, where we appeared in 20 games, rushed for 826 yards and eight touchdowns. His best season at North Carolina came in his junior year, where he ran for 504 yards and five touchdowns on 91 carries.

To round out the free agent signings, the Bills added a trio of defensive backs in safeties Garrett Taylor (Penn State) and Josh Thomas (Appalachian State), as well as cornerback Ike Brown (Florida International).

The Bills' roster is now at 88 out of a possible 91 players under contract.
