QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills GM Buddy Nix
On DE Mario Williams and if there’s any pressure on him:
“He gets it,” Nix told Buffalobills.com. “He’s got his head screwed on right. It doesn’t bother him. He doesn’t want to be looked at as the savior. He wants to play good and he wants to make everyone around him better. Pressure doesn’t matter to him and it doesn’t matter to me. The most pressure he’ll ever have is being the first pick in the draft six years ago.”

THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
April 12, 1964 — BILLS SIGN PETE GOGOLAK
