Bills The Favorite To Sign FB Jerome Felton

Jason La Canfora mentioned earlier this morning that the Bills are hoping to sign former Vikings FB Jerome Felton.

  • Now Alex Marvez is reporting that the Bills are the favorite to sign Felton.
  • According to Marvez, Felton will likely come away with a “nice contract” for a fullback.

Felton exercised the opt out clause in his contract last month, so that he could test the open market.

Last year, Minnesota reduced Felton’s salary from $1.95 to $1.45 million and in turn included the ability for him to opt out of the agreement following the 2014 season.

Felton has played just 122 of the team’s 743 snaps and only saw five snaps against the Packers in Week 12.

Pro Football Focus has Felton rated as the No. 7 fullback in the league, so even though fullbacks have found very little interest on the open market, there is a chance that Felton could have some opportunities next year.

Felton, 28, appeared in all 16 games and and carried the ball for 27 yards on four carries to go along with 36 kick return yards.
