Bills GM Buddy Nix Gives Cordy Glenn A Strong Endorsement

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey played the right card last week at the close of mandatory minicamp when he said that the team's left tackle job would be decided by a competition between rookie second-round pick Cordy Glenn and second-year pro Chris Hairston.

GM Buddy Nix, however, was not as even-handed with his comments about the left tackle position in a recent interview with BuffaloBills.com, giving a strong indication that the left tackle job is Glenn's to lose this summer.

"We feel pretty good about the guy we got there," Nix said of Glenn. "He's taken every snap since he's been here. He lined up there from day one, and he's been (in) every play with the ones since he stepped out of the car here. Again, that'll all be decided in pads, but he hasn't done anything except impress us that he can play there."

Nix's commentary doesn't mean that there won't be a competition for the job between Glenn and Hairston, nor does it deny the potential outcome that Hairston could very well win that battle. What it means is something we discussed last week: Glenn has the inside track at the job.

When Bills training camp begins in 31 days (one month from tomorrow!), expect Glenn to continue to get the lion's share of first-team reps to start out - and to win the job outright if he keeps his head above water and doesn't struggle too badly.
