Impending free agent S James Ihedigbo mentioned that he’s hoping to re-sign with the Bills this offseason.
“The one thing I really liked and my wife will say the same, the people in Buffalo. We played for the Jets and were around the people in New York. New Yorkers are New Yorkers, you love them all, but Buffalo the people are so genuinely nice and arms wide open for us and they really accepted us into the community,” Ihedigbo said, via BuffaloBills.com. “I definitely look forward to that aspect of it.
“Buffalo has the best fans. To even see when we were leaving the stadium on the last day cleaning out our lockers and there are 50 fans standing out by the gate cheering us on, those are the type of fans you want to play for on Sunday. They deserve to see a winning program and a winning team and I look forward to hopefully help give them that.”
Ihedigbo, 32, originally signed on with the Jets as an undrafted free agent back in 2007. He spent four years in New York before catching on with the Patriots.
The Ravens signed him to a contract in 2012 and he spent two years in Baltimore before joining the Lions on a two-year contract in 2014.
Ihedigbo didn’t sign on with a team until November of last year when the Bills added him to their roster.
In 2016, Ihedigbo appeared in four games and recorded 16 tackles, no interceptions and a pass defense.
