Wannstedt meets with Bills defensive staff -
"It’s not me that he needs to meet with," Gailey told "He’s meeting with the defensive staff which is the biggest meeting. He and I have known each other a long time and I have a great deal of respect for Dave."

"Like I said before when you’re picking third that means you’re not very good so there are a lot of spots you can get better," he said. "You don’t say to yourself, ‘We don’t need that.’ There might be some areas where you think you have a little bit more of a need. Now if you have a great player that’s going to be great for many years you have to still take a look at it and consider it."

Inside The Bills | Nix on Bills free agents
"Every class you bring in should be better than the one before. That’s your goal," said Nix. "That’s what we try to do. We want to keep our own players. We don’t want guys going off and playing against us. You want the good players to stay here. We’re going to try to keep them all and keep them at the right value and that’s the only discussion I’ll have about free agents."

Inside The Bills | Nix points to greatest impact
"We’re not going to draft for positional need," Nix said. "It’s obvious when you’re picking third that you’re not real good unless you traded for it. So we can get help in any area. We’ll let it play out and do our homework and the guy there that can make the biggest impact for us is the one we’ll take."

Inside The Bills | Wannstedt a proven def. mind
"Buffalo’s head coach made it clear that he’s sold on Wannstedt having worked with him in the past, but the key is making sure there’s a way that Wannstedt and the current defensive staff can effectively blend together."

Landing Wannstedt would be a Buffalo coup - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"He's overqualified for the Bills' only apparent vacancy, inside linebackers assistant. But tack on the title of assistant head coach and the pay that goes along with it, and that might work."

Shawne Merriman thrilled with Bills - AFC East Blog - ESPN

"The idea of looking at a Wannstedt, I mean, he's more of a 4-3 guy than a 3-4 guy. You wonder, is change in the works on the [Bills] defense."

Fitz clear choice for Offensive MVP -
"A lot of the offensive success the Bills did enjoy could be tied chiefly to the player who would quarterback the offense for 13 of the last 14 games of the season. Ryan Fitzpatrick set single season career highs in completions (255), passing yards (3,000), touchdowns (23) and passer rating (81.8). While his impact on Buffalo’s offense didn’t translate into wins, his play was convincing in naming him the team’s offensive MVP."
