Undrafted free agent notebook: QB Jackson staying in Buffalo

Published

on

Former University at Buffalo quarterback Tyree Jackson and the Buffalo Bills reached an agreement on an undrafted free agent deal.

“I truly thought he would be drafted,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane told reporters. “He was on our draft board to be drafted. I’m surprised. You saw his name still sitting there late in the seventh, and you start going, ‘Man, if this kid doesn’t get drafted, we’re going to have to go after him.’ And we did.”

Beane said the 6-foot-7, 249-pound Jackson must pass a physical before a contract can be signed. He then will have a chance to compete for a backup spot to Josh Allen with veterans Derek Anderson and Matt Barkley. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the deal includes a $75,000 guarantee.

Jackson left college with one year of eligibility remaining. In three seasons, he completed 55.8 percent of his passes for 6,999 yards, throwing for 49 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.
