He Bills they are signing ex broncos linebacker lightning shane after a minicamp tryout, Ray advertised on instagram.
Ray was Denver’s first round pick in the 2015 NFL draft, ranking 23rd overall, spending a total of four seasons with the team. He played in 49 games and recorded 14 sacks. His most productive season came in 2016, when he had eight sacks.
However, Ray failed after that year. He collected just two total sacks over the next two years before becoming a free agent in 2019. He signed with the Ravens that offseason, but did not make the team and has been out of the league ever since.
“Words cannot describe the emotions I’m feeling right now,” Ray wrote. “So many tears, sleepless nights, depression, everything that comes with losing the game. So many days of having nothing but hope while fighting an uphill battle. There were times when I thought maybe I should give up, but I wouldn’t be myself if I quit. Even in my darkest moments I believed in myself. I believed in my preparation. I thought I would have another chance even if the world didn’t believe it.”
Since 2021, Ray has played for the CFL’s Toronto Argonauts, appearing in 18 games over two seasons. Last year, he had six sacks and two forced fumbles.
