Bills meet with Clausen; Bradford mum
INDIANAPOLIS -- Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen has met with only two teams so far at the NFL scouting combine: Buffalo Bills and Washington Redskins.
That list is sure to grow. Clausen and Oklahoma's Sam Bradford consistently are rated the best two quarterbacks in this year's draft class.
But at least we know the Bills are interested enough to formally interview Clausen, who said he has spoken to Bills coach Chan Gailey previously.
"I've met Coach before and he's a great guy," Clausen said Saturday afternoon in Lucas Oil Stadium. "We were just talking ball and having a lot of fun. Like I've said, I've met him before and it was good to see him again."
Gailey and general manager Buddy Nix have been vague in speaking publicly about the Bills' quarterback situation. The depth chart consists of Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm, each of whom started last year.
Bradford declined to reveal the teams he has met with.
