The still very popular Bills of the 90’s fought so hard for each other because of the bonds they developed off the field as much as in the heat of battle. Bills center Eric Wood took a page out of their book this offseason with a rather important offensive teammate.

Making every effort to strengthen the bond with QB EJ Manuel, Wood in an appearance on SiriusXM NFL Radio explained how he brought his quarterback along on an annual pilgrimage of his.

“I brought him back to the Kentucky Derby this year with me and we really have become close, which I feel needs to happen in that center-quarterback relationship. He’s my guy moving forward and I’m super excited for him. I know he’s excited to go back out and really play well this year,” said Wood. “EJ struggled a little bit last year, but a lot of that was when he was coming off of injuries and didn’t have a lot of practice time. Given all this time in camp and the way he’s grown this offseason mentally and physically I expect big things out of him. He’s my guy.
