Former South Carolina football star Brandon Shell signed an offseason contract with the Buffalo Bills with the intention of fighting for a starting role on the offensive line for one of the best teams in the NFL. Shell, the nephew of Pro Football Hall of Famer Art Shell, appeared ready to contribute for the Bills after starting over 60 games at both tackle spots during his 6-year career.

Things appear to have changed for the Goose Creek, South Carolina native, however.
