Tyree Jackson wasn’t one of the 254 names called in the 2019 NFL Draft, but the former UB quarterback is staying in Western New York to begin in pro career.

Jackson announced on Twitter Saturday night that he and the Bills have agreed to terms as an undrafted free agent.

This past season, Jackson helped guide the Bulls to their best season in Division I history, winning 10 games, advancing to the Mid-American Conference and to the Dollar General Bowl.

It was just the third time in program history Buffalo played in the postseason.

Throughout the combine and leading up to the draft, Jackson worked out with Bills starting quarterback Josh Allen and Jordan Palmer in California.
