Bills head coach Rex Ryan expressed appreciation for GM Doug Whaley’s willingness to trust his head coach’s judgment when it came to putting in a waiver claim on free agent LB IK Enemkpali. Whaley explained how the exchange between them resulted in giving the waiver claim the green light.
“We have an extensive background from our college scouts, so we knew about everything in his college days,” said Whaley of Enemkpali. “When Rex brought up the possibility and opportunity to claim him, I deferred to him. He’s been with him for a year. He said, ‘This is a good kid. We appreciated what he did for us. We’re going to judge him on what he did for us.’ (Enemkpali’s) motto, he told me, is the guy just shuts up and works. We’ll take guys like that who work hard and want to win.”
Enemkpali is expected to arrive in Buffalo on Thursday, take a physical and then report to training camp late in the day Thursday.
