Bills hope to develop wildcat
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Bills had the opportunity to rest on Saturday and Sunday. This coming week will be a tough one - beginning with physicals Monday followed by three long days with mini-camp practices.
One area the team hopes to be more proficient this coming season is the wildcat offense. Much of that hinges on the development of Brad Smith. Both Smith and Vince Young are capable of running the formations, but Chan Gailey would prefer if Smith had some more natural QB skill - and development in that department was one of the keys to the OTA workouts.
"We still plan to use it," Gailey said. "We had to get out of it last year when Brad had to go play wide receiver full time and you don’t have time to work on that all the time. But when we had it we thought it was a viable option for us during the course of a ball game. We’re going to keep it. We’re going to keep working with it. The better Brad gets at quarterback… now he’s a threat to throw it and run it and that helps your wildcat."
