QUOTE OF THE DAY
MIKE PETTINE, Bills Defensive Coordinator, on Aaron Williams’ play at safety and learning the position:
“Being a safety is such a different world from being a corner. Now there are a lot of plays where he ends up locked up on a guy and his corner instincts can take over. But it is a lot of learning and a lot of communication and I think he’s ahead of schedule of where we thought he would be. He’s flashed just the things that we saw in him as far as being a safety. Real nice play yesterday undercut a throw, interception and obviously his range his ability to get sideline to sideline is obviously something we’re going to take advantage of.” via BuffaloBills.com (6/12)
