"Moves like the ones we’ve made today are never easy, but we have to do what’s best for our team and keep moving forward," General Manager Buddy Nix said. "We’ve got some good, young players on our roster who we feel are ready to take the next step and they will now have the opportunity to do so. We thank both Nick and George for everything they’ve given the Bills organization and wish them nothing but the best for the future."
"Thanks to all the great fans and friends I have met in Western New York. It was truly a pleasure being a part of that organization and culture. Very unfortunate we didn't get the Bills to the playoffs, but I know you guys will have many successful years ahead of you. Thanks Bills Mafia for all your support. Sad to leave but like they say, when one door closes more open up. All in God's hands."
