Tight End Mickey Shuler has bounced around as he enters his fourth year in the NFL. When the Bills claimed Shuler off the waiver wire and were awarded his rights Tuesday, Buffalo became his fourth stop in the NFL.
Shuler entered the league as a 7th round pick of the Vikings in 2010. He’s played with Minnesota, Miami, Minnesota again, and then Oakland since then.
In an appearance on The John Murphy Show Tuesday night, Shuler said he found out about his release from the Raiders over the weekend.
“Yeah, I wasn’t expecting that,” Shuler said. “I flew into Pennsylvania for a wedding, and Im getting back on the plane flying back to Oakland from Pennsylvania Sunday night, and I got the call and they said they were releasing me on Monday. So yeah, it was a bit of a surprise.”
Shuler has only played in six NFL games, and that came in his rookie year in 2010 with the Dolphins. He’s hoping he gets a chance to get back on the field with the Bills and settle in to an NFL career.
“Every time you get another opportunity it’s a blessing,” he told host John Murphy. “It’s not easy on your stress level. Your family, my wife, it’s hard on everyone. As long as you keep getting a shot to play this game, a kid’s game, and get a chance to get paid to do it, I’m going to keep doing it.”
Shuler expects to arrive at the Bills complex by Wednesday afternoon. The entire interview with new Bills Tight End Mickey Shuler is available here
