It had almost been a full month into free agency and LB Zach Brown hadn’t been drawing a lot of interest. But it didn’t have him antsy about finding a home. Appearing on the John Murphy Show, Brown talked about how Buffalo expressed interest and he’ll be lining up for the Bills in 2016.
“I just kept praying and had faith in God that (an opportunity) was going to come. The Bills called and it was a great chance because I was thinking they’ve got a great defense,” said Brown. “Great defensive line, great cornerbacks and Rex and Rob (Ryan) and they just got my man coach (defensive line coach – John) Blake up there. The pieces of the puzzle are there so I said, ‘I’d love to join the crew.’”
Brown had met Rex Ryan before as he had a pre-draft visit with the Jets when Ryan was the head coach there, so he had some familiarity with him. During his visit Brown said he liked the collective vibe in the building and wanted to be a part of it.
“It was good. It’s a great feeling and everybody here wants to win so it’s a good atmosphere,” he said. “They’re going in the right direction so for me I wanted to be a player who could come in and get them to where they want to go.”
Brown said he plans to attend the team’s offseason conditioning program to get to know his new teammates.
