Gable Steveson, the former decorated amateur wrestler, who is fresh off of his WWE departure from NXT, is headed to the NFL. The United States Olympic gold medalist and WWE NXT competitor Gable Steveson has reportedly signed with the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, according to NFL insider Adam Schefter. Steveson, who is expected to play on the defensive line, joins the team on a standard three-year rookie deal.
