Appearing on the Shredd and Ragan show on 103.3 The Edge Tuesday afternoon, Bills GM Buddy Nix was asked about a range of topics including the release of former starting center Geoff Hangartner, who has since signed with Carolina.
Nix gave the following answer.
“Geoff’s a great guy, a great community guy,” he said. “Geoff lacks strength to anchor at the point. If a guy is a back-up center for us, he’s also got to back-up at guard. We have 53 players. When we go into a game 46 of them can play. Seven offensive linemen is what you want. You have one guy that backs up the center and both guards. You have to have a guy who backs up both tackles. In my opinion, Geoff could not do that. So that’s what we did.”
