NFL.com reports that Kroy signed the one-year contract after the Falcons decided not to re-up him in the off-season. Biermann met with the team earlier this spring before signing to become an official team member.
Kim also reacted to the news on Instagram, noting her connection to Buffalo. “Kroy is so excited as I am (my parents grew up there, half my family still lives there) never mind the fact the fans are AWESOME, the team is AWESOME and my hubby is ecstatic,” she wrote.
This has been one of the hardest days ever for me. Kash turning 4 and starting Pre-K, KJ starting kindergarten and my best friend, my everything left this morning to play for @buffalobills although Kroy is so excited as I am (my parents grew up there, half my family still lives there) never mind the fact the fans are AWESOME, the team is AWESOME and my hubby is ecstatic … It was hard to say good bye! Im so thankful for @briellebiermann taking Kroy so early this morning, @cheftraceybloom coming to the rescue to be here for me, @nikitpressley texts and ALL of you who have welcomed my husband with open arms! THANK YOU #HeIsMyCalm #HeIsMyStrength #HeIsEveryThingAManHusband&FatherShouldBe
