It’s no secret that players who come to play in Buffalo, whether it be for the Bills or Sabres, love their time here. There are a few outliers who didn’t like playing here but generally speaking, most players love Western New York after giving it a chance. It doesn’t hurt when the team is good either, which is the case for this current Bills team.
The culture the Bills have built at One Bills Drive over the last six seasons has been nothing short of amazing. The team has made the postseason the last three seasons, with a fourth straight playoff appearance likely this season.
Head coach Sean McDermott, general manager Brandon Beane and quarterback Josh Allen are huge reasons why the team is great and the players love playing here. One Bills player tweeted after the win over the New England Patriots that he does not want to leave. Guard Rodger Saffold tweeted that he will do “whatever I got to do” to stay in Buffalo. He even tagged Beane’s fan account.

Saffold was signed as an unrestricted free agent back in March and has been a key piece of the offense line. Saffold has played the last few years with the Tennessee Titans and before that, the Rams organization. It’s not clear how much left he has in the tank in his career but he clearly adores playing in Buffalo and for the Bills organization.
Sounds like Beane will have an easier job getting Saffold re-signed.
