NOTABLE QUOTES FROM TUESDAY
General Manager Buddy Nix appearing on the Shredd and Ragan Show on 103.3 The Edge –
On reports that moves are made to save money:
(For) Any move that we make we take the information that we have at the time and we try to do things that will make our team better. It is our opinion that it makes us better. It is never about money. It’s never about when a guy was drafted. The business I am in, the only way I will stay in this job with the Bills and our coaching staff will survive is if we win games. It has nothing to do with what the budget is. …. This business of playing our guys or playing high draft choices, it is really kind of amusing when you think about it. The only way we are going to survive and be successful is to win games. So, every move we make is for that reason. Money has never been mentioned since I have been here. I know what the cap is and we can spend it all.
On if he has ever been told to save money from Ralph Wilson:
I am not going to get into this, but I will try to clear that up. It’s the other way around; I talk him out of going after high-dollar guys that you see on TV and ESPN. That has happened more than once. It’s me talking him out of it.
