Bills sign RB T.J. Yeldon to 2-year deal

NFL free agency rumors: Patriots may be looking to sign offensive playmaker

T.J. Yeldon is heading to the AFC East.

The former Jaguars running back has signed a two-year contract with the Bills, the team announced Monday.

Yeldon, 25, was selected out of Alabama by the Jaguars with the No. 36 overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft and spent his first four seasons in Jacksonville.

He has made 30 starts in 51 career games, registering 465 carries for 1,872 yards and six touchdowns. He also has 171 receptions for 1,302 yards and six touchdowns, catching at least 30 passes in each of his four seasons.

However, Yeldon drew criticism from Jaguars executive vice president Tom Coughlin last seson after he and Leonard Fournette were seen on the sideline appearing to not be paying attention to the team’s Week 17 game against the Texans.

“They were disrespectful, selfish and their behavior was unbecoming that of a professional football player,” Coughlin said at the time.

Yeldon is the third rusher to be signed by the Bills in free agency, joining Frank Gore and Senorise Perry. Buffalo also has LeSean McCoy on the roster.
