Once upon a time, offensive lineman Wyatt Teller was traded by the Buffalo Bills to the Cleveland Browns.
One might think some comments made by Buffalo general manager Brandon Beane healed old wounds.
The GM said earlier this spring that one of the mistakes he made in his career with the Bills was trading Teller. The lineman fetched Buffalo a late-round draft pick… and he went on to become and All-Pro selection.
But actually it wasn’t those remarks that changed the way Teller felt. Rather, any angst toward the Bills was quickly removed for Teller by Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott.
At Browns minicamp, Teller was discussing the personal side of the NFL against the business side.
Admittedly, Teller said it’s hard to find the right balance at times. In a series of events with McDermott, Teller said the coach found it.
Teller reflected on being dealt by the Bills. He explained how even though he was gone from the Bills roster, McDermott went on to check in with Teller a mere few weeks later.
The coach make sure things were working out for Teller with the Browns.
Here’s Teller’s full story on McDermott via News5 in Cleveland:
#Browns Wyatt Teller was talking about how there’s both a business and personal side to football. He said, “The personal side never changes.”
