MarQueis Gray is a supremely talented athlete who has shown great versatility over his young football career.  Recruited as a quarterback, he began his collegiate career at the University of Minnesota as a wide receiver before taking the reins from Adam Weber.  Gray pulled in 42 catches for 587 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore, then switched to quarterback full-time as a junior.  He had a nice all-around junior season, with 1,495 passing yards, 966 rushing yards, and 14 total touchdowns (eight passing, six rushing).  Still, he split his senior year between quarterback and wideout.

Undrafted out of college, Gray's caught on with the Cleveland Browns in 2013 and spent the season learning the H-back and tight end positions.  He was brought back to Minnesota prior to this past season and made the Vikings as a backup tight end.  Gray appeared in eight games for the Vikings, catching one pass.  He was claimed off waivers by the Buffalo Bills and finished out the season with them.
