Nix on tackle situation

Posted by Chris Brown on April 18, 2012 – 11:07 am

Bills GM Buddy Nix talked about the team’s offensive tackle situation in terms of their roster numbers and who they believe are capable for the blind side.

“We need tackles, but we think Chris Hairston can play left tackle for us and win,” said Nix. “People say Fitz gets the ball out quick, but we run our offense with a lot of empty sets, with five blockers and if they bring six he better get it out. In this offense he has to get it out quick. Chris Hairston might not be the prettiest foot athlete that he can protect the back side. We’ve got Pears and Sam Young is coming off of knee surgery. So we’ve only got three. We’d like to have two more.”
