The Buffalo Bills announced the hiring of new head coach Sean McDermott this week and while most of the team wasn’t very vocal about it, there were some frequent tweeters that weighed in.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor was the only current Bills player at the coach’s introductory press conference but he declined to speak with the media afterward.
Also of note, several players retweeted the videos and pictures the team sent out in place of writing actual posts of their own. Pass rusher Shaq Lawson, backup guard Patrick Lewis, and cornerback Kevon Seymour were among those who shared.
The rest of the Bills probably won’t meet McDermott until April’s voluntary workouts begin unless they are in town to sign a contract or get checked out by team doctors.
