"It’s definitely the biggest opportunity to date that I’ve had here with this organization," Hairston told "I just want to take advantage of it fully and do everything I can to just be the right guy for that position.

The Buffalo News or other outlets can claim that the Bills should adapt this in order to extend an olive branch to the county, but they don't care.

In other words, they have a history of not doing what the fans want."
