ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. — Following the trade of Lee Evans and recent comments by Fred Jackson, there's the feeling that some Buffalo Bills' veterans are not satisfied with the direction of the organization.
The most vocal example was after the Evans trade, cornerback Drayton Florence tweeted his frustrations. Then on Tuesday, he yelled "you've earned respect" while Jackson was being interviewed by the media.
“I don't question the commitment of anything here. I know everyone's on the same page. Everyone wants to win. Everyone's tired of losing. I know it's time to get things turned around. I know there's a lot of guys just tired of the situation - going home in January,” said Florence.
Concerns over recent moves aside, the Bills veterans say they need to produce on the field.
“Hopefully all the guys around here understand that this is a business. If you don’t keep up your end of the bargain, they move on,” said defensive lineman Kyle Williams. “I want our defense to be better when I’m playing than if I’m not playing, and I think it’s the same thing with everybody on our team: veteran, rookie, or not. They have to understand that and come out here and work and try to get better no matter what the circumstances are.”
