Buffalo Bills Sign Local Defensive Tackle To Team
On Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills added a new player to their roster from the free agency. According to the Buffalo Bills website, OL Randy Colling will be joining the Buffalo Bills for their 2014 season. Colling, a graduate from Gannon University where he played DT, left the university with the second highest career sack record of 25. Colling recently has been playing for the Cleveland Gladiators in the Arena Football League where he led the team in sacks and tackles for loss.
This is not Colling’s first foray into the NFL. In 2012, he participated in mini-camps with the New York Giants and Green Bay Packers. Although he did not find success with these teams, he was able to lock his time in with Cleveland in the AFL. It was his moderate success with Cleveland that gained the attention of the Buffalo Bills when they signed him through a professional future’s contract.
While Colling has shined defensively, the Bills have made it known that they hope to utilize him as an offensive lineman and possibly a guard. This assignment clearly is intended to strengthen the line and give E.J. more passing time in the pocket. We will see if the bills add him to the starting roster or keep him as a backup until he learns the system.
As a former high school classmate of Colling, this writer is hoping that we see him on the line in Week 1 as an important piece of the future playoff puzzle.
