Bills' Kelsay loves having DE rotation

It will be quite a different season for Buffalo Bills defensive end Chris Kelsay.

For the majority of his career, Kelsay has been pegged as one of the two starting pass rushers for the Bills as they approach the season. Now with the additions of Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, Kelsay's role could be significantly scaled back.

To Kelsay, a team-oriented player through and through, he's just focused on one thing -- and it's not playing time.

"I'm here to win. I think everybody in this organization knows that. I've played a lot of snaps in my career, and to be honest with you, I'm looking forward to having a rotation. You can play fresher, I think we'll be more productive in doing so.

"When you've got guys like Mario [Williams] and Mark [Anderson] and Shawne [Merriman] and the younger guys -- I mean it's going to be a competitive training camp. Whoever we go with, it's nice to be able to look on the sideline and know that if you need a blow, somebody that's coming in is just as good and can provide great depth and production on your side of the ball, and specifically at our position.

"I'm excited. If it means that you're playing 30 snaps instead of 60, or 65-70 some games closer to 80, I'm all for it. It's something I'm actually looking forward to, and I think everyone in our room is."
