For the second time in two years, the Buffalo Bills have moved quick (once allowed) to sign a University at Buffalo undrafted free agent. Last year the Bills signed wide receiver Naaman Roosevelt, who made the practice squad, hit the active roster and then made an impact on the field late in the season. Perhaps lightning will strike twice with Buffalo getting Bulls safety Dominic Cook to join the defensive secondary mix.
Cook spent the first three seasons of his UB career at cornerback before converting to safety for his senior season. His play was stellar last year—- earning first-team All-MAC honors, largely on the strength of six interceptions (sixth in the nation) while forcing three fumbles.
Cook is hoping to join his teammate from last year in the NFL as 2011 rookies. Cornerback Josh Thomas probably has a much easier road as he was a fifth-round draft pick by Dallas this past April.
Another teammate in the UB secondary from last season, Davonte Shannon, is likely to get a NFL training camp invite in the next 24 hours.
**UPDATE** Via Twitter, it looks like the Bill have signed two more undrafted free agents. Bills wide receiver David Nelson tweets that the team has signed his former University of Florida teammate, running back Emmanuel Woody while WGR’s Joe Buscaglia is reporting that Texas Tech linebacker Brian Duncan has also signed.
