Bills starting QB Ryan Fitzpatrick made an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio Wednesday and was asked for his thoughts on the addition of fellow QB Vince Young.

Fitzpatrick explained how Bills GM Buddy Nix filled him in onYoung before the signing even took place.

“Buddy Nix has been a guy that has been very fair to all his players, he’s been a guy who’s been trying to create a competitive atmosphere,” said Fitzpatrick. “Buddy caught me in the hallway one day and said, ‘Look, we’re looking to create some competition for that number two spot at quarterback, we are bringing in Vince Young. We made him an offer. We’ll see if he comes. But just to let you know, obviously, you are our guy and we are just trying to get better at every position.’ 

“When people are upfront and honest with you and telling you what is going on, then it makes everything go much smoother.  And for me, I’m a guy that’s got to go out there and perform, and I know that, just like every quarterback in the league knows that.  I met Vince the other day and he seems like a really good guy.”
