Buddy Nix stepped down as the Bills GM after only three years. Sadly those three years were not ver improessive, not only on the field but in the office as well. Some foolish trades were made, some questionable free agent signings were made, players were cut, and some strange rookies were drafted.
Nix will remain with the team in a new role as special assistant, the Bills said in a release issued on Monday.
The Bills did not immediately announce Nix’s replacement. The team has spent much of the offseason grooming assistant GM Doug Whaley to take over.
The move did not come as a surprise, and comes after Nix oversaw the draft in which the Bills opened by selecting quarterback EJ Manuel.
