Inside the Bills:
Newly signed RB Tashard Choice practiced Thursday and was glad to see some familiar faces.
“It’s good to be here,” he said. “There are a lot of good coaches here…the ones I knew from Georgia Tech and also players that I know on this team. I know Sam Young, Scott Chandler, CJ (Spiller) and a couple of other guys because I played against them in college.”
Choice also is familiar with some of the offensive scheme.
“Oh, yeah, it does make it easier. You pick up things quickly…you remember everything you did before. So it’s not that difficult to know the plays and know what’s going on. So it was actually a really smooth day…really smooth.”
Knowing there’s a chance he could be in the Bills game day lineup soon Choice is anxious to get up to speed completely.
“My thoughts are just to get rolling. It’s been more difficult this season than I thought so I’m just really ready to get the opportunity and to get my chance and do the best I can.”
