QUOTE OF THE DAY
Doug Whaley, Buffalo Bills General Manager with BuffaloBills.com
Q: When you look at the success you had with Alan Branch and Manny Lawson and even some of the free agents you acquired during the course of the season, is that the approach you’ll take in free agency this year?
A: Yes, we like that approach. We call those guys “dust settle” guys, not big splash free agents, but guys you can get a lot of value out of. You get more bang for your buck.
