Bills sign general manager Whaley to contract extension
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) The Buffalo Bills have signed general manager Doug Whaley to a contract extension.
Bills co-owner Kim Pegula made the announcement by posting a note and a picture on her Twitter account on Sunday afternoon. The picture showed Whaley signing a contract and posing alongside Kim's husband, Terry, and team president Russ Brandon.
The extension was reached after Whaley, coach Rex Ryan and other team officials spent the weekend holding postseason meetings with the Pegulas at their home in Florida.
Whaley completed his third season as the team's general manager, and was entering the final year of his contract.
The Bills finished 8-8 and extended the NFL's longest active playoff drought to 16 seasons.
