Bills WR Percy Harvin says he expects to be more than “just a gadget guy” in Buffalo this season.
“Aside from the first two years I got in the league, I’ve been just a gadget guy,” said Harvin, via BuffaloBills.com. “I’ve been dying to just sit down with that one coach who will tell me what I’m doing wrong and what I need to do.”
According to Harvin, Bills WRs coach Sanjay Lal played a big role in him signing with Buffalo a few months ago.
“I fell in love with Sanjay (Lal) as a coach,” Harvin continued. “His ability to get me to process things so quickly … going into the second or third game, I felt like I had been playing outside for years … That was all a part of my big decision to come here.”

Giants defensive line coach Robert Nunn said that he expects second-year DL Johnathan Hankins to surprise people in 2015 based on his interior pass-rushing ability.
“He really surprised a lot of people with his pass rush,” said Nunn, via Giants.com. “Everybody thought that he was a run stopper coming out but those sacks were legit. He had some legit numbers and a lot of quarterback hits and pressures, came up big in some key situations and I really like where Hank is.
“He has got to continue to improve with technique. That is where his big improvement has got to be going into training camp but I think that it is a very good situation. He has got a chance to be a solid player for a very long time in this league.”
