Former Penn State tight end Kyle Carter has a new home after signing with the Buffalo Bills

Carter was a key player for four years for Bill O'Brien and James Franklin, earning Freshman All-American honors in 2012. He finished his Penn State career with 84 catches for 963 yards and four touchdowns, one of which preceded Sam Ficken's game-winning field goal in the 2014 Pinstripe Bowl.

He signed with the Minnesota Vikings as an undrafted free agent in 2016, spending two years on the practice squad. He spent time with the Giants and Seahawks before being signed to the Bills practice squad at the end of the 2018 season.
