"Yeates appeared in 10 games in 1974 and will be remembered for blocking a field goal in the final minute of the Bills' 29-28 win over New England at Foxboro. He was involved in three tackles last season.
He spent the entire 1973 season in the 'physically unable to perform' category and has worked hard to get ready for the 1974 campaign. He has exceptional quickness for a defensive lineman. Yeates was the Bills' fourth draft pick in 1973.
Yeates was a three-year letterman and a defensive leader at Boston College. He made the All-East team as a senior and was chosen to play in the Senior Bowl. He earned his degree in management."
