There still was no official word Wednesday on the Buffalo Bills' plans to introduce Doug Whaley as the new general manager, but an announcement on Thursday is likely.

The Bills still were finalizing the timing of the deal Wednesday, a team source said. Whaley's ascension to GM has been a question of when, not if, since the end of the season. The team announced Monday that Buddy Nix is stepping back from general manager to special advisor to the football department.

Whaley, 40, joined the Bills in February 2010 as player personnel chief and was promoted to assistant general manager a year later. He received a contract extension in February.
