Bills head coach Chan Gailey explained why the coaching staff chose to flip seventh-round pick and practice squad player Mike Jasper from nose tackle to offensive tackle in practice this week.

“We think he’s a very good athlete,” said Gailey. “We like Mike Jasper. We like his work ethic and athletic ability. We just think he’ll be a better offensive player in the long run. We moved him over there and he was agreeable to it and he actually was looking forward to it and I think he was excited about the opportunity.”

Jasper lined up at right tackle in practice Monday.
