Last year Bills new FB Jerome Felton was a teammate of Matt Cassel in Minnesota. Felton watched how Cassel won the starting quarterback job in a competition with rookie first-round pick Teddy Bridgewater. A Week 3 foot injury cost Cassel the rest of the 2014 season, but his approach to the game and his success in landing the starting job impressed Felton, who is once again his teammate in Buffalo.
In an interview with Buffalobills.com right after he signed his contract with the Bills, Felton called Cassel a true pro and his presence on Buffalo’s roster only reinforced his desire to sign with the Bills.
“It was unfortunate last year when he got hurt. He had put a lot of work in and had a really good camp and we felt good about him going into the season,” Felton told Buffalobills.com. “So when I saw that he had signed here it made me more excited. I was already pretty much bought in and I wanted to be here and they wanted me here and when I saw that he was coming I got even more excited. He’s a true professional. He comes to work every day. He’s going to push whoever is already here and push to be the starting quarterback. There’s a lot of work that goes into it and he’s going to put it in every day.”
