Alabama in the Pros

Former Alabama defensive back signs contract for Buffalo Bills

A speedster of the Nick Saban era at Alabama has landed a professional gig.

Former Crimson Tide defensive back Bradley Sylve signed a contract for the Buffalo Bills on Friday, according to NFL writer Aaron Wilson – who cited sources. Sylve was not selected through seven rounds of the 2016 NFL Draft, due to sustaining an Achilles tendon injury on the week of Alabama’s pro day.

Juggling both football and track, the Louisiana native was known for his speed.

Sylve played in 50 games throughout his four-year career (2012-15), posting 40 tackles and seven pass breakups. He earned two national championships and three Southeastern Conference championships.
