    Orchard Park, N.Y. -- The announced their finalized list of undrafted free agents on Friday, a week before the team holds rookie minicamp.

    The team agreed to terms with the following players:

    Jason Croom, tight end, Tennessee

    Jason Croom spent time at both wide receiver and tight end during his five seasons at Tennessee. Of the undrafted free agents, he may have the best chance to make the roster.

    Jordan Johnson, running back, Buffalo

    Jordan Johnson is a Western New York native and product of the University at Buffalo. He finished his career with the sixth-most rushing yards in school history.

    Marquavius Lewis, defensive end, South Carolina

    A team captain at South Carolina, Marquavius Lewis had 9.5 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks over the last two seasons while moving around the Gamecocks' defensive line.

    Austin Rehkow, punter, Idaho

    Austin Rehkow kicked and punted at Idaho and did both extremely well. During his final season with the Vandals, 26 of Rehkow's 56 punts landed inside the 20-yard line.

    Brandon Reilly, wide receiver, Nebraska

    Originally a walk on at Nebraska, Brandon Reilly finished his career with 70 catches for over 1,200 yards and six touchdowns.

    Greg Pyke, offensive line, Georgia

    Greg Pyke played both guard and tackle at Georgia. He spent the 2014 and 2015 seasons at guard before moving to tackle for his final season with the Bulldogs.

    B.T. Sanders, safety, Nicholls State
    Sanders is known for his tackling ability and has been a mainstay in the Nicholls State secondary. In 2015, he was second on the team in tackles and was named a Second Team All-Southland selection.

    Marcus Sayles, cornerback, West Georgia

    Marcus Sayles was one of the Bills' pre-draft visitors last month and comes with an impressive resume, albeit in a small-school setting. He ran a 4.49 40-yard dash and started 46 of 47 games during his career at West Georgia, blocking 13 kicks and intercepting 12 passes.

    Daikiel Shorts, wide receiver, West Virginia

    Daikiel Shorts has a chance to stick with the Bills as a slot receiver. He had 874 receiving yards out of the slot last season and forced 11 missed tackles after the catch, according to Pro Football Focus. His lack of ideal size and speed caused him to go undrafted, but Shorts has other qualities that could make him a productive pro.


    Keith Towbridge, tight end, Louisville

    While Keith Towbridge only had 21 catches during his career at Louisville, he has the frame to develop into a useful blocking tight end.

    Jeremy Tyler, safety, West Virginia

    Jeremy Tyler had 101 tackles, three interceptions and 11 passes defended during his career at West Virginia.

    Nigel Williams, defensive tackle, Virginia Tech

    In 51 games at Virginia Tech, Nigel Williams had seven sacks.

    Zach Voytek, offensive line, New Haven

    Zach Voytek was a Division II All-American as a senior at New Haven. He played left tackle during his college career but may project best as a guard at the next level.
