Bills coaches volunteered their time at the Buffalo City Mission on Wednesday, serving a Valentine's Day community meal. Cornerback Levi Wallace also attended.
Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll, who is from Western New York, said connecting with the community at events like this are part of the reason why coaches come to love working in Buffalo.
"These coaches here that maybe aren't from Buffalo and they've lived here one and two years, you can see them – they love this place, because the people make you feel comfortable being here," Daboll said. "This is their town now, too. This place has a way of making you feel that way. Great neighbors. So I think it's important as many times as we can get out there, to help those who are less fortunate, we try to do that.
"We work for the Buffalo Bills' organization, but the Buffalo Bills is bigger than just the Buffalo Bills," Daboll added. "It's the community of Buffalo and the surrounding areas. Just to show a small appreciation for some of the people around here makes you feel good."
UB product Steven Means signs extension with Atlanta Falcons: Defensive end Steven Means, the Super Bowl champion who attended Grover Cleveland High School, got a new contract with the Falcons. Means was cut by the Eagles last season but landed with the Falcons, who seem to like having him around.
Bills largely avoided injury bug in 2018: The good news: The Bills stayed pretty healthy last year. The bad news: The team still wasn't very good. But Jay Skurski noted that the Bills were able to limit soft-tissue injuries (meaning injuries to muscles, ligaments, etc), which are thought to be more preventible than hard-tissue injuries (bones). That's a credit to the Bills' Strength & Conditioning, Athletic Training, and Performance Science departments, all which focus on injury prevention to some degree.
