OL Young lines up on both sides

Newly signed OL Sam Young lined up at both right and left tackle during the course of practice Wednesday as he tries to get acclimated to his new surroundings and more importantly his new playbook here in Buffalo.

“I am going to ask as many questions as I can right now,” said Young, who has been projected by GM Buddy Nix as a right tackle. “Whether it is from the guys or the coaches, I showed up five minutes ago so I am just trying to soak it all in right now. And like I said get in the book tonight and tomorrow and get rolling in order to be as sharp as I can.”

Young, who was claimed off waivers from Dallas by the Bills, has had the benefit of facing the likes of DeMarcus Ware and Anthony Spencer in practice every day the past year or so and believes it has only made him a better player.

“I went up against him all the time,” said Young of Ware. “That was the best thing that ever happened to me was being able to go up against him and Anthony Spencer day in and day out. He would bull rush me and then he would tell me exactly what he saw, so I was learning from him and bouncing ideas off of him. The guy is as good as it gets so it was a great opportunity for me to learn from him and really to improve.”

Young also said it was nice to see a familiar face in Buffalo’s locker room in TE Scott Chandler, who played in Dallas with Young last season.

“I had him as a roommate for a couple of road trips in Dallas so it was nice seeing him when I walked in the locker room,” he said.
