The Buffalo Bills need playmakers on defense so you think that taking Auburn defensive lineman Nick Fairley would be a smart move.
Apparently not as the Bills should pass on him.
In the National Football League a player has to have a burning desire to want to succeed, especially in the early stages in their career. However, if there is any reason that a player doesn’t want to be with a particular team then their development can be greatly compromised.
That would be the case if the Bills took Fairley as according to Chris Brown of the Bills website Fairley has stated that it when asked what team he would like to play for, “it doesn’t matter as long as it is not cold.”
No team at the top of the National Football League Draft is going to take a player if there is any inkling that he doesn’t want to play there. The reason being it would be a complete public relations disaster and would hurt ticket sales greatly.
Fairley’s statement is pretty stupid as after the Carolina Panthers the next warm weather team is the Arizona Cardinals at fifth overall. The next team after that is the Dallas Cowboys at ninth.
That means Fairley would stand to lose millions of dollars with or without a rookie cap.
In the end, the Bills need talented dedicated football players and not dumbasses like Fairley.
