Bills face a motivated former teammate Sunday

Posted by Chris Brown on November 12, 2013 – 8:24 am

The Jets receiving corps has been through the ringer when it comes to injuries. Santonio Holmes, Jeremy Kerley are two of the more prominent wideouts who have been out of the lineup. To help fill the void they signed a free agent receiver, who began his career with the Bills. And that receiver is coming into Sunday’s game pretty motivated.

Bills former WR David Nelson, who was signed as an undrafted rookie in 2010, is still smarting from not being tendered a contract offer after his original three-year rookie deal ran out with Buffalo. He insists he’ll be using it as fuel when he returns to play at Ralph Wilson Stadium this weekend for the first time in another team’s uniform.

“Anybody who tells you when you go play an old team or team who cut them that it is just another game is lying to you,” Nelson told the Newark Star-Ledger. “This is definitely more than just another game for me. It is going to be an emotional game, a fun game. This game holds a little more in my heart than most others.”

Nelson has been productive for the Jets of late with 13 catches for 179 yards the last three games.
