Bills secretly sit down with Cowher

ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen reports the Bills held a secret meeting with former Steelers coach Bill Cowher before the club named Buddy Nix general manager Thursday.

Cowher, through a CBS spokeswoman, issued a "no comment" on Mortensen's story.

The Bills previously interviewed former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan.

Mortensen also reports Nix will formally interview interim coach Perry Fewell for the opening Monday.
