A Parade…Marching Bands…School let out early…Buffalo LOVES Drew. Ralph Wilson speaks to roaring crowds welcoming Bledsoe to Buffalo, telling Drew he’s “given the whole area a spark.” Presented him with his official number 11 jersey…Bledsoe comes to the microphone…a very exciting day for him and his family, has always admired the Buffalo Bills and their organization. His first regular season game was in Buffalo, coming full circle now, hopes to end his career there, enjoyed his 9 years with the Patriots, his treatment there and experience and now looking forward to the next stage of his career. He’s coming there for one reason…to win football games.
Questions from reporters…comparing coming into the league as a rookie with joining this Bills team. Drew thinks this situation is better, the Bills are better than those early Patriots teams…When the trade happened, he was in the Hospital with his son, and there was a “range of emotions” Very excited when he found out he was going to be a Bill…Feels great to be wanted coming in here after not being able to get his starting job back last season…Had confidence all along that he would end up in a good situation, that’s as far as he’ll comment about the trade process…Extremely excited to get back on the field, know’s he can still play at a high level, can’t wait to answer critics (Read:Belichick) …refused to talk about comments made by NE players regarding certain things Brady brought to the team that Drew didn’t….said the answer he’s going to give is his play on the field…a ton of talent on that Buffalo team, he welcomes the high expectations, expects the team to win alot of games and expects to be held to a very high standard of play…looks to be “very successful very quickly”…Thinks the weapons the Bills have are probably more than the Patriots have….defenses can’t take away one guy and stop the team….no lasting effects from injury last year…then the media was dismissed to go out to the “rally”
This was all broadcast on WEEI
