Greg Roman deal with Buffalo finalized


Now that the Bills have a head coach, they’re moving quickly to assemble a staff around him.

As expected, the Bills have finalized a deal with former 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman for the same job there. According to Alex Marvez of FOX Sports, the deal has been finished and will be signed tomorrow.

Roman took some criticism in San Francisco for being a little run-heavy this season, but frankly, that’s the direction he’ll need to go in Buffalo.

Unless he can turn E.J. Manuel into Colin Kaepernick overnight, the Bills will need to lean on their strengths, and Roman’s a good philosophical match for the kind of ground-and-pound game Ryan had his most success with when he was the Jets head coach.
