The NFL draft is an exciting experience for aspiring NFL players because it's the first step to realizing their dream. However, those dreams become more of a reality once they finally sign their rookie deal.
Buffalo Bills 2021 fifth-round pick Tommy Doyle came one step closer to his NFL goal when he signed his rookie deal on Thursday. While most players don formal or even casual clothing to sign a contract, Doyle wrote his signature while wearing a full Bills uniform. There's really no other way to put it: it's an absolutely epic way to sign a deal.

It can sometimes be harder for a later draft pick to get noticed by his fanbase. After all, a lot of fans might be more familiar with the prospects who were projected to go within the first two rounds. Fortunately, Doyle has managed to separate himself from the pack with his memorable rookie deal signing.
With a 6-toot-8, 326-pound frame, Doyle will bring some size to the Bills' offensive line. He's spent the last two seasons for the Miami RedHawks at left tackle, but also played on the right side in 2018, which gives his new team some flexibility. He scored a 64.3 overall ProFootballFocus grade in 2020, showing that he could use a little more development before he sees consistent NFL action. Still, things look pretty promising if Doyle can successfully use his massive frame at the NFL level.
As it stands, the Bills are one of FanDuel Sportsbook's favorites to win the Super Bowl at +1200 odds. If Doyle can be half as epic on the field as he is off of it, Buffalo could be serious contenders for years to come.
