Not long after he signed his new contract with the Bills Monday morning, he got on the phone to speak with owner Terry Pegula. In a sit down interview that will appear on Buffalobills.com later today (Monday) he talked about his exchange with his owner.
“Nothing but pleasantries. I told him I’m excited and very thankful for the opportunity that he’s given me, but now it’s time to get back to work,” Hughes told Buffalobills.com. “We have goals, an AFC East title. We want to get that banner hanging up in this building so we know we’ve got to get ready to work for that and that starts now. So we’re putting our effort into that. Super Bowl too, but first we’ve got to take care of our division so we can get into the playoffs and let the rest take care of itself.”
The self-motivated Hughes said knowing he had teammates in Buffalo who were just as motivated to complete the team’s turnaround and reach the postseason was a factor in his return.
