Bills sign WNY native, 2 others, to futures contracts

(WGR 550) -- The Buffalo Bills have dipped their toes into the pool of players originally from western New York once again. On Tuedsay afternoon the team announced they've signed three players to reserve/future contracts.

Randy Colling, native to Arcade, NY and a graduate of Pioneer High School, officially signed on with the team as an offensive guard. He attended Gannon University where he was a defensive standout, but head coach Doug Marrone will instead move the 6-foot-5, 320-pound Colling to the offensive side of the line.

The WNY native totaled 220 tackles and 25 sacks in his college career.

The team also brought pass rusher Kourtnei Brown back to One Bills Drive. Brown spent all of training camp in 2013 with the Bills before being released ahead of the regular season. The 6-foot-4, 253-pound Brown entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2012.

To add some competition at running back, the Bills signed former Baltimore Ravens seventh-round draft pick Anthony Allen. The 6-foot-1, 223-pound running back was selected in 2011 and has appeared in 21 games throughout the first two years of his career. Allen spent his college days at Georgia Tech before transferring to, and graduating from Louisville.
