TJ Yeldon

Former University of Alabama running back and Daphne native TJ Yeldon has signed a contract with the NFL's Buffalo Bills.

According to the team's website, the 25-year-old signed a two-year deal with the organization. 

Yeldon is a four-year NFL vet, spending the first part of his career with the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was a second-round draft pick in 2015. 

After starting as a rookie, Yeldon has served mainly as a reserve running back for the Jaguars each of the past three seasons with the past two backing up Leonard Fournette.

"The Alabama product is adept at making himself skinny to get through creases and anticipates running lanes well.

Yeldon has also proven to be a threat as a receiver out of the backfield with a pair of 50-catch seasons over the last three years, including a career-high 55-reception campaign in 2018.

The addition of Yeldon now gives Buffalo six running backs on their roster. Yeldon also visited with the New England Patriots."
