TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday that the franchise has agreed to terms with former Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland.
The Bills took Ragland at No. 41 overall in the second round of last month’s NFL draft. Ragland is expected to be a contributor from day one for the organization. Contract details were not revealed.
“It feels great,” Ragland told Buffalobills.com. “You get this opportunity and you work so hard your whole life as a kid just to be in this position. You’ve put yourself in this position so now you’ve got to come through. So I’m very thankful I got the deal done and now it’s time to get to work.”

Ragland led Alabama and finished among the top-10 SEC tacklers with 102 (60 solo) last season. He earned SEC Defensive Player of the Year honors and was also tabbed as a unanimous All-American. He was one of the leaders of a stout defense that helped the Crimson Tide to its fourth national championship in seven years.
