Ryan Fitzpatrick was elevated to the starting role last week. Now a week later Trent Edwards is gone, but he doesn’t see that changing his style or degree of leadership for Buffalo’s offense.
“I’m going to be the same guy regardless,” he said. “I think because my role shifted from back-up to starter, obviously it becomes louder, but I’m going to be the same guy. A lot of my leadership is on the field or talking with guys making sure that everybody’s on the same page and managing personalities – that’s just the way that I do it.”
The players in the locker room though shocked on Monday also realized they can’t dwell on the surprising release of Edwards. They’re going to move forward and said they’re committed to rallying around Fitzpatrick all the more on offense.
