In the past few days Shawne Merriman and Stevie Johnson have been very public in recruiting free agent WR Vincent Jackson on twitter. Merriman, as we profiled on the home page today, was instrumental in helping the Bills land Nick Barnett and Kirk Morrison in free agency last offseason. So how does Buddy Nix feel about his players actively recruiting potential free agent targets?
“I love it. I think it’s great if you’ve got guys that care enough about your team to try and recruit. ” said Nix in an interview with Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550 Tuesday morning. ”We don’t let them decide who we’re going after, but to know that they would try to sell and believe in our program and they want good players here, I think that’s great.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if defensive players for the Bills have also been on the phone talking to a primary defensive free agent target of the club as well.
