QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills Defensive Coordinator Dave Wannstedt: On what LB Arthur Moats has done to be with the first team:
“He has made very few mistakes and he is playing fast. He really is. It was a little bit of a disservice to him last year… He got hurt in that Denver game and then he missed the rest of camp… he did not have a real opportunity to go through everything, as did Bryan Scott, different position, but to give him the best chance to be successful.”
