It has been a busy off season for former Stanford tight ends. After Austin Hooper decided to go pro and Coby Fleener signed with the New Orleans Saints, and Zach Ertz signed a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, Jim Dray continued the pattern and signed with the Buffalo Bills.
Dray spent his last two season as a blocking tight end for the Cleveland Browns. Dray, who is 6'5" and 255 pounds, will rejoin the Bills offensive coordinator, Greg Roman. Roman was Dray's tight end coach during his 2009 senior season at Stanford. Roman uses a running attack for the Bills, and Dray's style of play should fit right in.
Throughout his NFL career, Dray has 56 receptions and three touchdowns in thirty three starts. Prior to the Browns, Dray played with the Arizona Cardinals, who picked him in the seventh-round of the 2010 draft. Now, Dray will continue his career in Buffalo with a veterans minimum deal.
