One of the Buffalo Bills' newest receivers just made his first catch as a Western New Yorker: a $600,000 house that former quarterback AJ McCarron passed off to him.
Tyler Kroft, a tight end who last month signed a three-year, $18.75 million contract to play for Buffalo, bought a four-bedroom home in Orchard Park with his wife, Alexa, from McCarron and his fashion model wife, Katherine Webb.
Kroft, who played college football for Rutgers University, was drafted in 2015 by the Cincinnati Bengals and played four seasons there. In 51 games, he caught 67 passes for 661 yards and eight touchdowns. However, he was injured in the fifth game of the 2018 season, and missed the rest of the season.
McCarron was traded to the Oakland Raiders on Sept. 1, after less than six months with the Bills. He had also played four seasons with the Bengals, overlapping with Kroft, before he signed a two-year, $10 million contract with Buffalo just over a year ago. He competed for the starting job against Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen, but only played in the preseason. McCarron signed with the Houston Texans last month.
The 3,196-square-foot home on Airmont Drive was built by Forbes.
