Not much different for Bryan Scott in 2012
When the Buffalo Bills initially released their roster during off-season workouts, there was a definitive switch in one players title.
Long-time safety Bryan Scott went from being listed at that spot, to know having the letters 'L' and 'B' next to his name. That should be a big deal, right? Wrong, says Scott.
"The only thing that changes is my official listing. Besides that, there's no difference to what I did last year," he said. "A lot of in the box stuff, covering running backs and tight ends. Now I'm just in the linebacker meeting rooms to really gel and get that chemistry with the backers since I'm working with them more."
Scott is heading in to his tenth season in the NFL, and has been with the Bills for what could be six of them. Being a mainstay in the locker room, Scott was glad to be back when the organization came calling to give him a new contract.
"It means a lot. It really means a lot. This organization is like my family, these guys are my family. They just have a great thing going on and I'm excited and happy to be a part of it."
The linebacker has been entrusted the past couple of seasons with the unenviable task of covering some of the games' best tight ends.
He and the Bills kick off the pre-season schedule August 9 at Ralphi Wilson Stadium against Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins.
