If you’ve been following Donte Whitner on Twitter like I do, you have been along for the never ending ride of Whitner not being happy about what the Bills were offering the former 1st round pick as a contract extension. Nonetheless, Whitner was confident that he would remain a Buffalo Bill.
However Sal Maiorana of the Democrat and Chronicle, recently tweeted that he feels that Whitner playing days in Buffalo are done.
One of the many qualities I like about Chan Gailey is that he is a no nonsense, straight to the point type of coach. If he doesn’t feel like your a good enough player for his system, then your can pretty much kiss your spot on this team goodbye, a la Trent Edwards.
Now, whether or not the players Gailey does keep on this team actually leads the Bills to the promise land remains to be seen, but for now, I agree with letting Whitner test the market if he’s asking for more than what he is worth.
