Buffalo Bills comment on GMs' taped phone call


One of the stranger stories we've seen in a long time emerged Tuesday, when Deadspin released a taped recording of a phone conversation between Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik and Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix.

The conversation was fascinating, but the legality of how the tape was obtained seemed questionable at best, so it was not posted on Around The League. The Bills released a statement on the matter to the Buffalo News.

"We are aware of the report on Deadspin involving a phone conversation with Bills GM Buddy Nix," the Bills said. "We have made the league aware of the report and are reviewing it with legal counsel."

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello added: "NFL Security and our attorneys are looking into it."

That sounds ominous for the men who made the recording.
