    Gable Steveson Signs with the Buffalo Bills

    Friday afternoon, ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter reported that 2020 Olympic gold medalist Gable Steveson will sign with the Buffalo Bills. Steveson was recently released from the WWE, as he was trying to break into the pro wrestling world shortly after winning his second NCAA title in 2022. 

    After the WWE deal fell through, Steveson posted on social media as he took visits with the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins. 

    The Bills make sense as they are led by head coach Sean McDermott who was a two-time National Prep champion Sean McDermott (LaSalle College Prep, PA) in 1992 and 1993. 

    Steveson is billed at 6’1” 275 lbs and will attempt to play on the defensive line. This will be the first time that Steveson has played organized football. 

    In addition to an Olympic gold medal, Steveson won a pair of national titles for the University of Minnesota and was awarded the Hodge Trophy after each of those seasons. All in all, Steveson went 83-2 in collegiate competition, losing only twice in the postseason during his true freshmen year. 

    Last spring, Steveson briefly came back to the wrestling world with a dominating tournament title at the US Open and two wins over Mason Parris at Final X. Shortly before the World Championships, he stepped down from the world team due to conflicts with the WWE. 

    Steveson’s signing conjures up memories of great heavyweights like Carleton Haselrig and Stephen Neal, neither of which played college football, but won multiple DI titles and had lengthy NFL careers.
