Nix on Hangartner release

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.”
