As we reported last month Marcus Easley will be able to resume his playing career after an unexpected medical condition sidelined him for the 2011 season. Here’s where Buffalo’s front office stands on Easley moving forward.
“Marcus has had the worst luck. I’ve tried to stay away from him, I’m afraid it will wear off on us,” said Nix jokingly. ”His problem’s been completely solved. They said it would not recur again. So we don’t know what we’ve got. We know he’s talented, we’ve always thought he was. He’s a really big, strong, guy, he’s 225 pounds who can run. He ran a 4.40. He can run after the catch, we haven’t had that much. But to answer your question we’ve got to see what we’ve got.”
Nix said the club, assuming they re-sign Stevie Johnson want to acquire another big receiving threat. That’s likely due to the jury still being out on Easley’s ability in games that count, and the fact that he was unavailable his first two NFL seasons.
