Poll: Who Is Buddy Nix's Greatest "Holdover Find"?

New, comments

Think back to the early stages of the Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey regime with the Buffalo Bills. Buffalo was coming off of a terrible end to the Dick Jauron era - a period of time highlighted by a horrific lack of continuity in the front office - and Bills fans were ready to wipe the slate clean and start over with new people across the board.

That mentality included the Bills' roster, but thankfully, Nix didn't play it that way. Instead, he kept a lot of Jauron's personnel around in a "let's see who sticks" play, and the result is that he's found a lot of key contributors - and even a star or two - in that crop of players.

The Bills have upwards of 15 or 20 "holdover" players that are expected to stick with the team this year. We're asking you to name the best "find" of that group - the one player discovered that, if you were Nix, you'd point to as justification for preserving much of Jauron's team. We've got five candidates for you in the below poll, but have provided a write-in option as well. Go!
