One Bills player that needs to see more time



It’s tough to say what player needs to see more time with the recent departure of defensive coordinator Mike Pettine this week, before this news came afoot I thought that Nickell Robey fit nicely into the defensive scheme and I  was really looking forward to seeing how he progressed this year under him.

Not only did Robey earn a spot on the team as an un-drafted rookie with hard work and determination, he contributed in all sixteen games and had some impressive looks for a guy who is 5’7″ 165 lbs. If you look at his stats I think you would agree it should be interesting to see what happens through the off-season. I’m hoping he’s able to put on a few inches and become the little big time play-maker that I hope he can be. I’m also slightly impartial to Robey as I have visited his hometown of Frostproof FL several times, here is one of my personal pictures of Reedy lake that I took on one of my several trips through Frostproof.
My time in Robey’s hometown has really given me a better perspective of his roots, being able to actually see and know where he’s from allows you to really understand where this kid is coming from. It’s a great ride on the motorcycle and if you are ever in Central Florida and happen to be in the area then I highly recommend a stroll through.

Robey is just a small town kid with big dreams and I hope that not only his snap counts increase this season but also the caliber of his play as a result. Whoever becomes the next Bills defensive coordinator better find a place on the team for this guy because he is definitely one player that needs to see more time.
