Gailey keeping options open

Bills coach Chan Gailey acknowledged on the radio Thursday that the team is going to consider all its options, including quarterback, with the third overall pick in the NFL Draft. That's no surprise. Gailey stressed the team has to act in the organization's best long-term interests.

“No I wouldn’t say that at all," Gailey said, when asked on WEDG if a QB at No. 3 is not a consideration. "What has got to happen is you’ve got to understand that I think Fitz is a really good quarterback and I think he can take our team to the playoffs. But if you’ve got a chance to get a guy that you think for 10 years, 12 years, is going to be the guy, Fitz is moving on up in years, too. How many years do you expect us to draft No. 3 and be able to get a guy like that, Even if you put him under wraps for a year or two while you’re grooming him? You have to consider that. We’re not in here thinking about just short term, next year, what can we do for the Buffalo Bills? Buddy and I are committed to the long-term success of the Buffalo Bills."
