INDIANAPOLIS — The Bills have many questions on offense, but new coach Chan Gailey isn’t exactly answering them all publicly.
During his Thursday news conference at the NFL Scouting Combine, Gailey wouldn’t address reports that the Bills might be interested in adding a veteran quarterback.
“I’m going to sidestep that,” he said, drawing light laughter from the assembled media.
The Bills have Ryan Fitzpatrick, Trent Edwards and Brian Brohm at quarterback, but some believe Gailey is seeking an upgrade.
“If we can try to improve our situation, we’ll improve it,” said Gailey, who added that holds true for every position.
Gailey spoke highly of Marshawn Lynch, who has been mentioned in trade rumors, and said he believes NFL teams need two quality running backs to be successful. Lynch lost some carries to Fred Jackson, who just posted his first 1,000-yard season.
Gailey also said he hasn’t talked to WR Terrell Owens, who came to Buffalo last season on a one-year contract and caught just five touchdown passes.
Gailey did acknowledge that the Bills are looking for help on the offensive line, especially after RT Brad Butler‘s surprise retirement. Eric Wood and Demetrius Bell sustained season-ending injuries in 2009, but Gailey said their prognosises look good.
