QUOTE OF THE DAY
Dan Carpenter, Buffalo Bills Kicker
Q: Can you sum up why you wanted to stay in Buffalo?
A: It’s a great organization. My wife and I very much enjoyed everyone that we’ve met here, worked with here and the fans are great. Even when I was playing against Buffalo in my Miami days I’ve always recognized how great the fans have been here and their support of the Bills. For us it was a no brainer to come back to Buffalo. We were comfortable and loved it here last year. To be able to go back somewhere and be wanted where you would like to go, you’re very fortunate in this league for that to happen. We’re very happy to be here and excited to see where it goes.
