Quiet day around One Bills Drive as the players had the day off. We began the podcast with the news of the day and we heard from running back Fred Jackson on the current state of the Bills offense and his thoughts on the season moving forward.
Newly signed Bills wide receiver Deonte Thompson joined us in studio. Thompson was claimed off the Baltimore Ravens practice squad on Monday and talked about the process getting to Buffalo. He also discussed his relationship with former Raven and current Bills cornerback Corey Graham. Thompson is hoping to pick up the offense quickly and get on the field to help Buffalo “take it to the next level.” He was asked why Buffalo is a good fit for the next step in his young NFL career.
“It’s more of an opportunity to play. More of an opportunity to get on the field and try to help this team win. That’s the biggest thing. I just want to go somewhere I can fit right in and start rolling.”
Thompson also talked about his specialty of running routes and returning kicks and being part of the Ravens Super Bowl winning team in 2012.
