The Buffalo Bills now wait for the NFL to decide whether the recent incident involving LB Nigel Bradham is a violation of the league’s personal conduct policy, and whether any sanctions might be imposed.
That’s the word from Bills GM Doug Whaley, who met with the media at noon Tuesday at St. John Fisher College.
“We take these situations seriously,” Whaley said. “We don’t condone these actions. It’s something that’s unfortunate and we’ll deal with it as it comes.”
Early Saturday morning, Bradham was charged by Tonawanda police with unlawful possession of marijuana after a traffic stop. He was issued a ticket for possession of marijuana and a traffic ticket for having illegal tinting on the windows of his car.
Whaley says the incident is covered by the NFL’s Personal Conduct policy for players and “it’s under review as we speak.”
According to the Bills GM, Bradham has already met with Head Coach Doug Marrone and the team’s Director of Player Engagement, Paul Lancaster, to talk about the incident. Whaley says he plans on meeting with Bradham once the NFL issues its’ decision.
Whaley also says the Bradham incident should serve as a reminder to the rest of the players what’s expected of them from the franchise.
“The message is, when you’re in this league, it’s a privilege, it’s not a right,” he said. “You have to respect the shield, you have to respect the Buffalo Bills, you have to respect your teammates, the whole organization.”
