Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson Makes Historic Move to NFL, Signs with Buffalo Bills

In a groundbreaking move, Olympic wrestling gold medalist Gable Steveson has signed with the Buffalo Bills in a bid to conquer the NFL. At 24 years old, Steveson is set to embark on a new chapter in his athletic career, aiming to become the first athlete to clinch both a Super Bowl ring and an Olympic gold medal.

Steveson expressed his excitement for the challenging transition from wrestling to football, stating, “I am grateful to Coach [Sean] McDermott, [GM] Brandon Beane and the Buffalo Bills organization for giving me this opportunity.” Standing at 6-foot-1 and weighing 275 pounds, Steveson is expected to make his mark on the defensive line, a position he has never played before.

Despite his lack of experience in football, McDermott sees immense potential in Steveson and believes he can be a valuable asset to the team. The Bills have a history of nurturing talent, particularly in the realm of defensive tackles, making Steveson a promising addition to their roster.

Steveson’s journey to the NFL was facilitated by his agent, Carter Chow, who recognized the athlete’s potential in the football arena. Despite receiving interest from other teams, Steveson ultimately chose the Bills as his new home in the NFL.

Having achieved numerous accolades in wrestling, including two national championships and a gold medal at the Tokyo Summer Olympics, Steveson’s foray into football marks a significant turning point in his career. With his remarkable athleticism and determination, Steveson is poised to make waves in the NFL and leave a lasting impact on the Buffalo Bills.
