NFL.com’s Gil Brandt was on hand for Cam Newton’s highly publicized pro day at Auburn Tuesday and naturally several NFL clubs were represented. But the Bills apparently got some extended time with Newton and his representatives.
According to Brandt the Bills had dinner the night before with Newton and his agents. Here’s what he wrote.
An interesting side note: Newton and his agents, Tony Paige and Bus Cook, had dinner with the Buffalo Bills the night before. So clearly, there is an interest there.
No one has any true gauge on just what level of interest the Bills potentially have in Newton, but there’s no debating that Buddy Nix and his staff are doing their due diligence with respect to their pick at three. They know they have to nail that pick and are taking advantage of every extra opportunity to gather information on each and every prospect that could be available at 3.
Of course Gil Brandt thinks the Panthers are a good bet to make Newton the top overall pick anyway.
