Bills head coach Chan Gailey knows with Brad Smith on his roster he’s not going to keep other NFL coaches in the dark about having a Wildcat package in his offense. But with a full offseason to install and experiment with the package using Smith, something they could not do last offseason due to the work stoppage, Gailey sees value in having it as a part of the offense.
“We still plan to use it,” he said. “We had to get out of it last year when Brad had to go play wide receiver for a time. You don’t have time to work on that all the time. But when we had it we thought it was a viable option for us during the course of a ball game. So we’re going to keep it. We’re going to keep working with it and the better Brad gets at quarterback, now he’s a threat to throw it and run it and that helps your Wildcat.”
That’s part of the reason Smith spent more than two-thirds of the OTA practices at quarterback over the past three weeks.
