While there were some bigger factors in Jerry Hughes’ decision to re-sign with the Bills, he didn’t deny that the fan support the team gets on Sundays at Ralph Wilson Stadium was a plus too.

“It was huge. The fans were great here,” said Hughes. “I think that was another key thing for me as far as coming back—the fan support that I have always been getting. All of the love and all of the respect. I think that was another part.”

Of course the opportunity just to get on the field on defense was a major factor as well after not seeing much playing time his first three NFL seasons with the Colts.

“Just the playing time aspect—that had a lot to do with it,” he said. “Anytime someone gives you an opportunity to play in the NFL and the way that they gave it to me here, it was great. You don’t want to leave that.
