Buddy Nix is stepping down as the Buffalo Bills general manager, the team has announced. Nix will remain with the team in a new role as special assistant, the Bills said in a release issued on Monday. The Bills did not immediately announce Nix's replacement. The team has spent much of the offseason grooming assistant GM Doug Whaley to take over. The move did not come as a surprise, and comes after Nix oversaw the draft in which the Bills opened by selecting quarterback EJ Manuel. At 73, Nix completed his third season as the Bills general manager.
