While the fact that Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey believes the team will be a hybrid defense going forward is interesting enough, a different opinion of his might be more relevant to the 2011 NFL Draft. That opinion? Gailey believes his team is weakest defensively. (Which is fairly obvious, but nice to hear, anyway.)
"Defense is where we’re the thinnest," Gailey told The Buffalo News in Indianapolis on Thursday.
Stating also that the team has plans to re-sign Paul Posluszny once a new CBA is in place, Gailey also confirmed that improving at inside linebacker is an emphasis for the team. Even with plans to re-sign Posluszny, and with Andra Davis and Reggie Torbor under contract, the Bills are poised to lose Akin Ayodele and Keith Ellison via free agency, and need to improve drastically in this area.
Gailey also told The News that he was not in Buffalo when the team hosted free agent safety Bob Sanders on a visit this past Tuesday.
