O. J. Howard Signs With Buffalo
Former Tampa Bay first-round pick (No. 6) and Alabama alumnus O.J. Howard is being signed by the Buffalo Bills for a one-year $3.5 million deal with incentives worth up to an extra $1.5 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Howard suffered a torn Achilles during Week 4 of the 2020 NFL season and played a more limited role coming back for his last season for the Bucs. He totaled 119 catches 1,737 yards and 15 touchdowns throughout his 59 appearances with Tampa Bay.
With fellow Crimson Tide alum Levi Wallace leaving Buffalo for Pittsburgh, that makes Howard the only former Alabama player on the Bills' roster for the time being.
At Alabama, Howard was a part of three SEC championship teams (2014-2016) and was named the offensive MVP in the Crimson Tide's 2015 national title victory.
