QUOTE OF THE DAY

“By position, we know exactly how many we need. And by position, we’ve got them ranked. We will start with the first guy the minute the league office says ‘everything’s on go.’ We’re ready. When that’ll be, your guess is probably better than mine… I just know that we’ll be ready to go with it. We’ll be ready to get our drafted guys in here and get work. It’s kind of like kids at Christmas – the boxes are wrapped and under the tree, but you can’t open them,” General Manager Buddy Nix on being prepared for free agency during his interview with Norton in the Morning on 97Rock (Monday, May 3).
