During Manny Lawson’s introductory press conference in Buffalo, he admitted that he didn’t know the Bills haven’t been to the playoffs since 1999.
“That’s new knowledge to me,” Lawson said when asked about the franchise’s futility.
But there’s a new trivia question that arises from Lawson’s arrival. With the signing of Lawson, the Bills have now employed each of the three first-round defensive linemen who were drafted out of North Carolina State in 2006.
Mario Williams, the first overall pick that year, signed with the Bills last year as a free agent. Lawson, the 22nd pick, inked a four-year, $12 million contract this week. And John McCargo, the 26th selection, was drafted by the Bills.
Of course, McCargo is long gone. Still, you now have the ability to answer an obscure trivia question formulated by someone with no life. Like me.
