So on Wednesday, the second to last day of Bills minicamp, head coach Rex Ryan had a drawing where one player and one coach would be given the last day of minicamp off as a reward. The winners were Corey Graham and offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Ryan had to practically force Roman out of the building, and though he wasn’t on site on Thursday, he was checking in frequently. So his fellow offensive assistants decided to have a laugh at his expense.
“He already called or texted a million coaches,” said Ryan after the final practice Thursday. “I haven’t texted him back yet, but (offensive line coach Aaron) Kromer had a great one. He texted him back and goes, ‘Hey. Best practice we’ve ever had. I don’t know what the difference was, but there was a difference today. A different feel.’ And the next guy gets in there, same type of deal. ‘Hey, we were shredding it today. Tyrod was shredding it today.’ By the way, he was. We’re letting him know that to kind of pump him up like that.”
Obviously Roman is held in extremely high regard by his fellow assistants, but on the football equivalent of the last day of school his offensive coaches couldn’t resist.
