The Bills had dinner with Cam Newton the evening before his pro day at Auburn. They’ve now gone and done the same with Blaine Gabbert whose pro day is today (Thursday).
That according to NFL.com’s Gil Brandt, who said Bills GM Buddy Nix along with a few other Bills reps had dinner with the Missouri signal caller last night. He also provided a laundry list of high ranking NFL coaches and executives that are already in Columbia, Missouri for Gabbert’s pro day workout.
When Nix took the GM job with the Bills on Dec. 31st 2009 he said he’s a scout at heart and he believes in getting up close to prospects to “smell their breath.” Looks like he takes that expression literally, though we can’t say how close Buffalo’s GM was sitting to Gabbert.
