Bills GM Nix asks fans for a little more patience in outlining offseason needs _ including QB

Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix is asking playoff-starved fans for a little more patience while explaining why it's taken him so long to address the team's most pressing need: Quarterback.

With numerous holes to fill when he took over three years ago, Nix thought it was better to improve the rest of the team before selecting a quarterback high in the draft. As for whether this is the offseason he takes a run at drafting a quarterback high, Nix would only say, perhaps — and only if the right player's available.

Nix's comments come at a time when the Bills (5-7) are in jeopardy of extending the NFL's longest active playoff drought to a 13th season. Buffalo hosts St. Louis (6-7-1) on Sunday.
