And I we are joined right now by a bills head coach Rex Ryan kind of have to give us a few minutes he's on his way to a meeting with coaches but he's been kind enough to stop by the studio out Orchard Park. Rex is soured Jeremy and Joseph your good morning thank you first offer come anomalous. Good morning guys. So let's Charles clay and pershing Hartman Rex you wanted to talk to bubble guys let's Charles clay and tell us why you guys wanted him so badly. What they first off. You know it is you know fans who have a buffalo known in the disk has a hard guy to defend. He's real multiple why you can do with film. So we creates like match up problems cities too fast for a linebacker he's he's too big for corner recover. So it's you know what he had a love that match up well that they also is he's a guy that is perfectly. You know suited for awhile were looking for you know especially Greg Romans that type offense. If you might recall the 49ers he had a guy named Delanie Walker and you know in the end Davis thinks so I think that's. He really fits that you can actually put him in the back feel leaves a former tailback. So you claim a full backing employment tide did he give Klamath the eight specks by the can actually play of our receiver so. There's a lot of things we can do with him and we love his versatility. Rex one of the things that this offense here you mentioned ground and pound but. From the look at the signings it looks like it might be a lot more flashy Percy Harvard of course we'll show on record you mentioned the versatility of clay. Will the offense be built a lot on disguising and on just the the number of different things you'll be able to do. Jeremy that's exactly right every were to take advantage of of why the you know what the defense has given us and that's the thing about Greg Roman and he's been he is such a year. He's a Smart guy in we're taking advantage of of what that defense gives us if he you know we you're you're right we prefer ground and pound there's no doubt we wanna run it fifty times that we can on yet. However teams Superman you know we're not naive enough to think that. We're going to be really get away with that so they're gonna put a mall down there's no question we do you know we still might not disappoint implied. At the same time we get spread you out it creates some mud nightmare for you coverage if if if you wanna stop Iran by keeping all the big guys in there. Then so be it will be alert Jim a lot of different ways outside. Pressure eyewitness here on the AT&T hotline that you mentioned a moment ago when you're talking about Charles clay that he was perfectly suited for Greg Romans offense. What kind of players have you been looking for for Greg Romans office. Well I think first off you know Howard do you see that you know we had the fullback. You know while Felton. Who's at the you know just a smash in the face type guy. That fits us perfectly. And then all of a sudden you know now I gate clay so. Really we're trying to build a pieces that. That you know we we feel we need obviously he had been at castle and paler than the makes it the quarterback situation so that create competition there but we feel great about war offensives. I'm Percy Harvard and you obviously have a working knowledge of him from last year in New York what did you wanna bring Perseus. Well first off I think GAAP Percy is a guy that you know as an explosive. Athlete he's a a super talent and what we're trying to do is take a little pressure on Samuel markets as well. You Murray call last year. You know Sammy got double almost every snap you know you roll your coverage to an all that. I think we Gallic Percy harbor and that's going to be tough for you duke is Percy can't say yes slant take it the distance thinking go over the top via. All those type of things the game breaker. And the flexibility gives per she's one of those rare guys that you can put all over you can put him in the back field you can run reverses whether you can. Guys are an outstanding kick returner but the other thing is that you don't realize there's this guy's a tremendous receiver and he's only getting better. You know he's been a slot receiver for the majority of his career. But we use of last year we got them. As the outside receiver and he started getting better and better as the year went on had actually had a couple of about 200 all purpose yard games Morse. So I'm excited about him and if Percy isn't as competitive a guy as I've ever been around and and he was a great teammate. War I wanted to ask you about that because no one's ever really doubted his his offensive ability and his talent wrecks but there's always been talk about his attitude. So yeah I am guessing you would've brought him in here fewer word about it what did you learn about him. The person. That maybe you wouldn't have known as an outsider as someone watching him play for another team in reading stories about. Barred when he came out we did a lot of research on because quite honestly Percy was going to be a guy we are gonna draft that was a Mark Sanchez so. We did you know we spent like a weekend there so we we knew everything about them and I was really comfortable with that I've I think. When we brought him and he was everything we thought he'd be in that was a great teammate and super competitive guy disagree got to be around. In fact one of the highest awards this is Ed block courage award. That the players vote on he was second on our team in voting it only been there for four weeks at times so that ought to tell you about what what what his teammates their bottom. Bill that coach Rex Ryan joining us here on WGR just how open is the quarterback competition. Well it's going to be open Germany having its you know it it's a competition and you know whoever urge to job will be to guide its out their put them. You know we have. We have some talented guys in him we'll see what happens obviously you know you bring in a veteran like Matt Cassel. You know I thought I think he's you know he's done some things in this league some pretty get things in the sleek he's got that veteran you know a lot of presence about him. They begat you know went with Vijay back there. Just going into his third year I've really believe BJ's can improve tremendously fun with his fundamentals. Haven't David Lee of thanks and I think you'll that I I've I love the fact he's a gym rat he's Smart. He'll take where it would Greg Roman the you know with our offense. Will be multiple mobile or get ourselves out of bad plays give us in the good plays and base. So the middle part of it I think all three the quarterback for a quarterbacks that we have should be over handle that so. You know we'll see both them and then another guy is you will with with Taylor I think. That's going to be you know a young man he's probably the fastest quarterback in the league. He's he's explosive run in the zone reads and things like that. It will see where he's at so. You know it meant that truly you you've got guys there to work with him and I think that's. You know that'll be the important thing is you know that there will be competition in the first gonna have to earn the job it has been handed to somebody. We're still about you know couple months away from actually no organized team activities and things like that but I know that sometimes. The number of wraps yeah haven't practiced and in training camp you you kind of have to make a bit of a decision before the decision so heavy already kind of figured out laid out. What order the guys will go when you've got 34 guys to get in the mix I'm not exactly asking you who gets the first snap of OTAs but just. Have you given thought to how it will actually be designed to make this competition give you the best candidate. Well we haven't I take in particular when you get the training camp where actually get you know do a lot of things on two fields. So it won't just be you know BI offenses is going to defense is out their service and a basic test site every case will be working on two fields. So and that's how you develop young quarterbacks. You know where we're blessed to have some guys that are really developed quarterbacks you know obviously Greg Roman Chris Palmer. And this out they did. You know you put. You know he eats which whoever's running with the twos. One feel than the ones are on one field in the end that's how you get better and and I think. We're gonna have that we we need to develop some we have some young quarterbacks and here we wanna make sure that that everybody gets the the right amount of reps you actually had the exact same practice. On feel one Mattel anfield you know want to appeal to that you have a feel once so everybody gets the same rap sheet is basically double. Rex and I gotta get to meeting before let's ago when you first came and you talked a lot about building up the offensive line you bring in Ritchie and cock meego. Are you do you feel that you're done are you still gonna look into free agency do you need to get another offensive line starter here can you give us your thoughts on that position. Well I think we'll always do you always be looked at there's no question about that whether it's through free agency whether it's in no. You know the draft to whatever will always have regardless of the position will will look to. That competition will actually you know look to you know where guys can help us but yet that was a priority going in there's no question but. You know in in free agency someplace or some guys quite honestly that we really liked. But you know when you're trying to to balances the the books so to speak you know it's not like the New York Yankees are you know had unlimited spending. Although I will say this will our ownership that wanna be an issue we had a you know so well. They just wanna win but you gotta you know. The eke out the other look at things that clay was our number one priority. So we're able to get him in and then obviously Percy Harvey and that was something that. Really was was kind of a yum. The dole on Percy I don't think we realize that he really could could be available. In that was something that we jumped on and I think that's the mark of partner in our team we we have an opportunity Darren and we made ourselves better. Wrecks your bracket guy. I don't think it's say anything publicly on a notch you Corretja you got to you know I don't buddy buddy unethical and maybe some jelly beans but. But it's now off course did you pick any of the upset just any chance at Georgia State moving on. Ali I know no doubt of course. Now. It's it's too funny you know I just I don't know anything about basketball but I do know that Kentucky's pretty target that's a Smart pick I think you'll be out you might have a chance to win in those jelly beans the thanks stretcher come anomalous appreciate given us the time I've my pleasure against Rex rival's head coach joining us on the eighteenth to highlight more to park ever get a we get a break in here now wanted to keep Joseph around for a cameo ago.
