Inside The Bills

Size matters

Posted by Chris Brown on September 3, 2011 – 4:57 pm

In football it doesn’t all come down to measurables, but often times bigger and stronger wins. Buffalo’s coaching staff in some cases put a value on that with their roster decisions to get down to 53.

WR Ruvell Martin hasn’t been with the club for more than a week, but showed some ability on special teams and in the passing game Thursday night against the Lions and at 6’4″ 212 pounds is an intriguing target.

OL Colin Brown, who has been lined up at guard all summer with the second and third unit, is one of Buffalo’s largest offensive linemen at 6’7″ and 328 pounds. He too made the roster.

Now size wasn’t the only reason these players made Buffalo’s 53-man squad. They obviously have talent as well, but smaller players at their positions were not retained.
