Eric Wood says he feels good, describes future as 'on the wait and see'

Bills center Eric Wood described his future as "on the wait and see" in his first public comments since his brief press conference two weeks ago.

Wood, a University of Louisville alum, attended the Cardinals' basketball game against Georgia Tech and was interviewed for the crowd by the arena in-game host with his daughter in his arms.

"I feel good," Wood said. "At this time, I'm still part of the Bills. I'm under contract and will do anything I can to help them out.

"I'm excited to be back here and do anything I can to get Louisville back on top as well."

Wood has a neck injury that will not allow him to play football again, but he has not officially announced his retirement as he and the Bills work out an arrangement regarding the remaining portion of his signing bonus from an extension he signed last August and the salary cap ramifications.

Asked specifically about his future, Wood said, "I'm on the wait and see. I've got my hands full at home right now and I'm enjoying that and enjoying being back home."  Wood and his wife welcomed a son on Jan. 11.

Wood said he had many memories from his NFL career, but singled out reaching the playoffs this season with the Bills.

"Making the playoffs this year and ending that playoff drought was about the most fun I've ever had," Wood said. "Celebrating with those grown men in the locker room acting like kids is something I will never forget."
