Former Syracuse guard Chibane to join Buffalo Bills as undrafted free agent

Former Syracuse guard Zack Chibane will join the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent.

Chibane, who started all 38 games in his final three seasons with Syracuse, is going to be reunited with former Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone, who became the Bills’ head coach in January.

Chibane tweeted about his move to Buffalo on Saturday, calling the process “stressful.”

 

 

The 6-foot-5, 298-pound Chibane helped block for a 1,000-yard rusher in each of his three seasons as an anchor on the offensive line. The man who lined up to his left for the last three years, Justin Pugh, was selected by the New York Giants with the 19th overall pick in the NFL Draft.

In all, four Syracuse players have joined NFL teams this weekend. The Giants selected former Orange quarterback Ryan Nassib in the fourth round with the 110th overall pick, while the Pittsburgh Steelers drafted former Syracuse safety Shamarko Thomas immediately after with pick No. 111.
