Found August 12, 2012 on Buffalo Wins:
Now that the Buffalo Bills own the highest-paid defensive player in league history, their defense needs to be better in 2012. Not should be better. Not could be better. It needs to be better. But, ah, hold on a minute, I was always told by my coaches and inspiration posters in my high school hallways that there is no I in team. One person can't do it on their own, I was told.

Bills could cut Dwan Edwards, Terrence McGee
