NFL: Bills sign fifth-round pick Wang


Associated Press

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. Rookie offensive lineman Ed Wang has signed with the Buffalo Bills.

Last month, Wang became the first player with direct Chinese ancestry to be selected in the NFL draft. His parents are former Olympic athletes who emigrated from China in the 1980s.

The 6-foot-5, 301-pound lineman from Virginia Tech was the 140th overall pick in the fifth round, and is the first of Buffalo's nine draft choices to sign.

Wang started 36 of 47 games for the Hokies.
