Bills Player: “Money Didn’t Matter; If We Got Paid In Candy I’d Stay in Buffalo”
This offseason so far has not been too exciting if you're a Bills fans, since most of the activity from the Bills has been re-signing their own, but what is making Buffalo fans smile are players wanting so bad to stay on the Bills.
The Bills have re-signed star linebacker Matt Milano, tackle Daryl Williams, guards Jon Feliciano and Ike Boetgger, cornerback Levi Wallace and running back Taiwan Jones, to name a few.
Another fan-favorite is wide receiver/kick returner Isaiah McKenzie. After testing the free agent market, and getting interest from as many as eight teams to sign there, McKenzie decided to re-sign with the Bills.
What McKenzie said though, on why he resigned with Buffalo, will warm your heart.
McKenzie said he wants to stay in Buffalo, even if they paid him in candy.
"For me, money didn't matter... If we were getting paid in candy, I would stay here... for the rest of my life, said McKenzie."
McKenzie re-signed with the Bills on a one-year, worth $1.15 million. He caught 30 passes in 2020 and accounted for seven total touchdowns, including a punt return against the Miami Dolphins in week 17.
McKenzie is a fan-favorite and that quote is so cool. We heard similar comments from Matt Milano, Jon Feliciano and Levi Wallace -- three players I thought would be gone in free agency, but it's clear that this team wants to stick together as long as possible to win a Super Bowl.
