Barnett: Unit has to jell and grow

Posted by Chris Brown on March 16, 2012 – 9:47 am

LB Nick Barnett was as excited as anyone else affiliated with the Bills about the signing of Mario Williams. At the same time however, he cautioned that the pass rusher shouldn’t be viewed as a savior.

“You can’t help but to be excited right now. That’s a big step up for us, but our work is nowhere near to being done,” said Barnett. “It’s definitely a step in the right direction and we’re excited about it.”

Barnett admits that the defensive unit looks really good on paper, but the veteran linebacker knows what’s required of each guy on that defensive unit to maximize the talent on that side of the ball.

“There is still the chemistry that we have to grow,” he said. “That comes in training camp. Obviously there is still depth that we need to get as far as offense. But you can’t be more excited about Mario Williams coming in to Buffalo. It’s going to be awesome.”
