In his four seasons at Clemson, Tuttle racked up 2,329 receiving yards and 16 receiving touchdowns. That was enough for the Buffalo Bills to select him in the first round of the 1982 draft, but as has often been the case with Clemson players sent to western New York, he didn’t provide much return on investment.
Tuttle only started one game as a rookie and caught just seven passes for 107 yards. In Year 2, he played nine games and started three, but only caught 17 passes for 261 yards. After 1983, Buffalo cut ties and Tuttle ended up in Atlanta for his third season. It would end up being his last in the NFL as he only made one catch for seven yards across eight games between Atlanta and Tampa Bay.
