Gentry inks with Buffalo, will join practice squad
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y., -- "Glory to God."
Those are the three words former Wyoming receiver Tanner Gentry typed on his Twitter account after news broke Monday that he was signing with the Buffalo Bills and reuniting with former college quarterback, Josh Allen.
In 2016, the only season the duo played significant time together, Gentry snagged 72 passes for 1,326 yards and 14 touchdowns. Nine times that season the Denver native finished a game as Wyoming's leading receiver, including a 184-yard, three-touchdown performance against UNLV.
He did all that damage with just five receptions against the Rebels.
Gentry, who is 6-foot, 2-inches and weighs in at 202 pounds, will join the Bills' practice squad after visiting the team last week. Buffalo (13-3) is the No. 2 seed in the AFC Playoffs and will host Indianapolis Saturday at 11:05 a.m. MST.
Gentry signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent in 2017. He spent two seasons in the Windy City and played in four games, catching three balls for 35 yards. Gentry's last stop was in New York City where he was a member of the XFL's Guardians.
Last year, Gentry started The Performance Empire in his native Colorado. That's a skill-position football training program in the Denver area.
