"Yeates appeared in 13 games in 1975 after seeing action in 10 contests during the 1974 campaign. He continues to improve after missing the entire 1973 season recovering from a knee injury. Jeff blocked a field goal in the final minute against the Patriots to preserve a 29-28 Bills win in 1974.
The fourth draft pick of Buffalo in 1973, Jeff has exceptional quickness for a lineman. He can play either end of tackle and has been used as a nose guard in the 3-4 alignment.
Jeff 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."
