Midseason award for Nix

Posted by Chris Brown on November 4, 2011 – 11:11 am

Bills GM Buddy Nix and his personnel department have done a lot to turn around the team’s roster in less than two years time. With Buffalo’s 5-2 start he’s getting recognition for those efforts.

Sports Illustrated’s Don Banks named Nix as his Midseason Executive of the Year. Here’s what he wrote.

EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR: Buddy Nix, Buffalo general manager: Nix hired Chan Gailey last year, drafted defensive tackle Marcell Dareus this year, and has built a talented offense around lightly regarded players such as quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, running back Fred Jackson, receiver Stevie Johnson, tight end Scott Chandler and receiver David Nelson. The Bills have responded with a breakthrough season so far, and are 5-2 and tied with New England for first in the AFC East.
