Olympic wrestling champion Jordan Burroughs visits Bills camp
August 08, 2017


PITTSFORD - He's only 5-foot-7 and 163 pounds but could probably run through a brick wall. Jordan Burroughs didn't stand out in stature on his visit to Buffalo Bills training camp, but his resume might even top LeSean McCoy's for most decorated on the field Monday.

Burroughs won a wrestling gold medal at the 2012 Olympics and has three world championships to his name. His friend, Bills alumni manager Jeremy Kelley, invited him to practice since Burroughs' wife, Lauren, is a Buffalo native and converted him from a Broncos fan when they met five years ago. Their two young children, son Beacon and daughter Ora, wore Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy jerseys while crawling on the sideline. Lauren's uncle also happens to be Bills legend Thurman Thomas.
