ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - The Buffalo Bills reached an agreement early Monday to sign receiver Robert Woods, their second-round draft pick, according to a person familiar with negotiations.

The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the team had not announced the move.

Woods spent this past weekend taking part in the NFL Players Association-sponsored ``Rookie Premiere'' festivities in Los Angeles. He was scheduled to return to Buffalo for the start of the team's three-day minicamp Monday.

Selected 41st overall out of Southern California last month, Woods was regarded as the most polished among the draft-eligible receiver prospects following a solid three-year college career.

Woods set a school record with 252 career catches in 38 games in becoming Matt Barkley's favorite target.

Woods finished with 2,930 yards receiving and 32 touchdowns. His best season came in his sophomore year in 2011, when he had 111 catches for 1,292 yards and 15 touchdowns.

He will be given an opportunity to compete for a starting job opposite Stevie Johnson.

The Bills are in the midst of rebuilding their group of receivers under new coach Doug Marrone.

They drafted Texas speedster Marquise Goodwin in the third round. Following the draft, Buffalo signed undrafted rookie Da'Rick Rogers. Though Rogers was projected as a top-10 receiver prospect, he was overlooked in the draft because of a troubled college career split between Tennessee and Tennessee Tech.

Buffalo has reached deals with seven of its eight draft picks. Only its first-round selection, quarterback EJ Manuel, is unsigned.
