Adjusting to the life in the NFL is a challenge for all rookies, but Buffalo Bills undrafted free-agent signings Jimmy Gaines and Derek Brim have an advantage of familiarity.

The two Western New York natives are not only familiar with the city of Buffalo but also with one another. Gaines and Brim were both 2010 graduates from Canisius High School, a private, all-male secondary institution in Buffalo, where they were football teammates.

Gaines went on to the University of Miami, where he was a three-year starter at linebacker. Brim stayed local at the University at Buffalo, where he began his career as a walk-on but emerged as a starting safety midway through his junior season.

Both players did enough to capture the interest of the Bills, who made room for the local products on their 90-man preseason roster. That doesn’t ensure they’ll be on the Bills’ 53-man regular season roster, but both players are fighting hard to turn their opportunity into a career.
