QUOTES OF THE DAY
ROBERT WOODS, Buffalo Bills Wide Receiver on signing his rookie contract and his style of play:
“First of all I want to say thank you to the organization, but my job is to play football. I hired a good agent. I know he’s going to do his part. My job is to play football, get this behind me and the focus is on the field now. I wouldn’t say I have a distinct style. I can be a possession receiver because I can catch the quick passes and pick up the first down, but I can also make a guy miss and go the distance. So I would say I’m probably more of a complete receiver because I can do it all. I can play inside or outside.” via BuffaloBills.com (5/20)
