Donte Whitner: A Parting of the Ways with Buffalo Bills Seems Likely
Donte Whitner Reportedly Wants Out Of Buffalo
The Buffalo Bills drafted Aaron Williams plus two other defensive backs, and that means somebody could lose their job. According to General Manager Buddy Nix, Donte Whitner is the guy not coming back.
Whitner cleaned his locker out early and avoided the media at the end of the season, and now Nix said he believes Whitner does not want to come back.
Whitner makes a lot of tackles, but he only had one interception in 2010 and only five total in his career. You would like to see more than that from a first-round draft pick.
Whitner is from Cleveland, so he has no local ties keeping him to Buffalo. But he also has not lived up to his first-round draft slot and can not expect to get a premium contract elsewhere in the league.
The NFL is a big league, and Whitner will end up somewhere, but it looks like his time in Buffalo is over.
Whitner was tendered prior to the lockout with a one-year contract, but until there is a new CBA, it is unclear what Whitner will do or where he will play.
With three rookies, though, the Bills are saying they are moving on, and they will do it with or without Whitner.
