O. Gary signs with Buffalo

Postby Indy Dragons » Tue Apr 22, 2003 6:13 am

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) - Running back Olandis Gary is leaving a crowded backfield in Denver, agreeing to terms on a contract with with the Buffalo Bills.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed. A telephone call to Frank Murtha, Gary's agent, was not returned.

Gary, 27, isn't likely to be a starter for the Bills either. He is expected to back up Travis Henry after spending last season as a second-stringer behind Clinton Portis.

Gary's best pro season came in 1999 when, as a rookie, he finished with 1,159 yards rushing and seven touchdowns. He tore ligaments in his right knee in 2000 and broke his left leg late in November 2001.

Last season, Gary rushed 37 times for 147 yards and one touchdown and caught 18 passes for 148 yards. He figured to be a third option, at best, in Denver this season behind Portis, the 2002 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and Mike Anderson, who won that honor in 2000.



Not super big news, but at least it does show us where Gary ends up at.

Hmm, I figured he would go somewhere that he may get a chance to play ! Seems like he will just be insurance for Henry.

He's a nice insurance policy for the Bills.

there aren't a whole lot of openings for Rbs right now. His only hope for starting now would be due to injury. Dallas would've been a nice fit, but I guess that's hindsight now.

Dallas might have been a good fit for him, but it appears that they are interested in Jamel White from Cleveland.

Right now I don't see White going anywhere, unless he was packaged with another player (KJ...hmmm...COUCH) just because they will have no backup for Green. Jackson is the next RB in the depth chart, and we've all seen what skills he has, or should i say lacks. Besides, Cleveland tagged White and if Dallas wants him, they'll have to put out big for him.

Gary would have been a good fit for Dallas, but ah well. I guess he'll do well riding the pine for Buffalo just as well...
