QUOTE OF THE DAY
Anthony Dixon, Buffalo Bills Running Back
Q: Do you feel you can fill a role in short yardage situations?
A: Yeah I consider myself as an all-around football player. I can do anything asked of me in the backfield. I can play multiple positions, whatever coach asks me to do I can do. I’m just looking to come in and show them what I can do and then it’s up to them where they put me.
