Ryan has affinity for Bills defensive players

He’s had a conference call with the Buffalo media twice a year for the last six years and there have always been a couple of players that new Bills head coach Rex Ryan will single out. Two in particular this past season were on the defensive side of the ball for Buffalo.

Ryan was being asked about Buffalo’s defense in one of his conference calls this past season and he quickly mentioned two players specifically in his comment.

“(Brandon) Spikes is one of those guys that I like because he’s a tough guy, a mean guy, a tough a**,” said Ryan. “I like guys that are competitors and that’s why I like him so much. That’s why I like Kyle Williams so much.”

Ryan has mentioned Kyle Williams almost every season he has been head coach of the Jets on his conference calls, so the new Bills head coach has to be pretty pumped that he now gets a chance to coach him.

Brandon Spikes is set to become an unrestricted free agent. It will be interesting to see how the hiring of Ryan could impact Spikes decision making this offseason.
