The Buffalo Bills announced the signing of second-round draft pick Kiko Alonso, the linebacker from the University of Oregon.
Terms were not disclosed, but it's expected Alonso's deal will be worth about $1.1 million a year over four years. The total value should be worth about $4.4 million. Alonso becomes the sixth of the Bills' eighth draft picks to sign.
The remaining unsigned picks are first-rounder EJ Manuel and Robert Woods, who was taken in the second round five picks ahead of Alonso.
Alonso, 6-foot-3 and 238 pounds, has a chance to start right away in the Bills' defense. In the 3-4 front, Nigel Bradham is one starting inside linebacker. The other spot is open with this month's trade of Kelvin Sheppard to Indianapolis. Alonso started 17 of 36 games for Oregon. As a senior, he had 81 tackles in 12 starts.
