Welcome to featured Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of the featured Wikipedia article every day.
The featured article for Tuesday, 30 June 2020 is Chris Gragg.
Chris Gragg (born June 30, 1990) is a former professional American football tight end who played three seasons for the Buffalo Bills of the National Football League (NFL). Over 32 career games, Gragg totaled 24 career receptions with 2 touchdowns. Born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas, Gragg played college football for the Arkansas Razorbacks and was drafted by the Bills in the seventh round of the 2013 NFL Draft.
After he graduated from Warren High School in Arkansas, where he played football as a wide receiver, Gragg committed to the University of Arkansas where the coaching staff converted him into a tight end. In Gragg's sophomore and junior seasons with the Razorbacks, the team made appearances in Bowl Championship Series games and defeated the Kansas State Wildcats in the 2012 Cotton Bowl Classic, which culminated the 2011 season. A knee injury caused Gragg to miss eight games his senior season as the Arkansas team finished with a losing record. Invited to participate in the NFL Scouting Combine, an evaluative competition among prospective NFL players, Gragg ran the fastest 40-yard dash time and had the highest vertical jump and longest broad jump among all tight ends in attendance; in the draft, the Bills chose Gragg with the 222nd overall selection, a pick Buffalo acquired from a trade with the St. Louis Rams.
Gragg made his NFL debut for Buffalo on October 13 and played in nine regular-season games during the 2013 NFL season. He then played in 10 games in 2014 and 13 games in 2015 before he missed the entire 2016 season due to injury. He signed with the New York Jets in 2017, but did not play any regular-season games for the team after a preseason injury. On his Twitter account, Gragg was described as "retired" from the NFL as of December 2019. In 2020, Chris was listed as a "graduate assistant (wide receivers)" coach for the Memphis Tigers football team.
