We’ve officially signed TE Dawson Knox to his rookie deal:

Knox was chosen in the third round of this year‘s draft with the 96th overall pick after the Bills swung a trade with the Washington Redskins to move back into the third round after having already taken running back Devin Singletary with the 74th overall pick. The Ole Miss product has seen plenty of reps throughout OTAs and minicamp following a broken foot suffered by free agent acquisition Tyler Kroft on the first day of OTAs. 

The 6' 4" and 254-pound Knox, a converted quarterback in college, is considered extremely athletic, but a bit raw at the position catching only 39 passes for 605 yards in his collegiate career. 

Now that the entire draft class is signed, everyone will turn their attention to training camp, which will open on July 25 at St. John Fisher College in Rochester. The entire training camp schedule was released Friday morning and can’t be found here.
