Wide receiver Caleb Holley of Anchorage isn’t quite an NFL player, but he’s still drawing a paycheck from the league.
Holley, an East High grad who was cut by the Buffalo Bills on Saturday when NFL teams had to trim their rosters to 53 players, has been added to Buffalo’s practice squad. That means he will practice with the team but will not suit up for games.
Alaska’s top high school receiver in 2009, Holley was undrafted last spring after a record-setting career at Oklahoma’s East Central University. The Bills signed him in May after Holley performed well at a rookie tryout camp.
Two Alaskans will play in the NFL this season — Anchorage’s Zack Bowman is a cornerback with the New York Giants and North Pole’s Daryn Colledge is an offensive guard with the Miami Dolphins.
