QUOTE OF THE DAY
Macky MacPherson, Buffalo Bills Center
On getting an opportunity with the Bills…
“Some teams don’t take that intangible factor of whether the person is smart or whether they have good leadership skills. There are some teams out there that just want a guy who they think is a big enough player. Luckily, I latched onto a team here with the Bills that cares more about not just your size but care about the kind of football player you are.”
