Bills sign second-round pick Dion Dawkins to rookie contract

The Buffalo Bills nearly have their entire 2017 draft class under contract.

Offensive lineman Dion Dawkins, the team's second of two second-round draft picks, became the fifth member of the class to sign his rookie deal Friday, leaving only fifth-round quarterback Nathan Peterman unsigned from the group of six.

Dawkins' deal is for four years and will be worth about $4 million. He has worked at left tackle in rookie minicamp and the first week of organized team activities with starter Cordy Glenn out, but is expected to line up at right tackle in the regular season.

"I’m happy to be employed and have a job," Dawkins told the Bills' website. "I’m just going to work my tail off and whatever needs to be done, I’m willing to do it."
