This past summer Bills head coach Chan Gailey lamented the fact that he did not have a full offseason to work free agent signee Brad Smith into his offensive playbook due to the NFL lockout. This bye week may afford Gailey and offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins some time to add a small package of new material specifically for Smith.
“Maybe so,” said Gailey. ”But there’s a lot of things going on other than that. I’m not sure that’s at the top of the list, but it’s certainly on the list.”
Ahead of expanding Brad Smith’s offensive role is addressing the Bills pass rush and refining both offensive and defensive concepts and personnel groupings. Getting a head start on Washington is likely also ahead of putting in material for Smith, but the fact that it’s on the brain of Buffalo’s head coach says something.
