INDIANAPOLIS — At the highest levels, running backs are not exactly a hot commodity in the NFL right, as Le’Veon Bell can surely tell you, but teams are always looking to add depth at the position where injuries take an enormous toll year in and year out.
One of those teams is the Buffalo Bills, who are looking to find someone to reduce the workload of their tandem of 30-year old backs in LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory, both of which are entering the final year of their contract.
Enter Ollison, a Niagara Falls, New York native that played his high school championship game at New Era Field.
Ollison said he’ll be happy no matter where or when his name gets called, but admitted he’s thought about the possibility of playing near his hometown and sharing a backfield with another former Pitt ball carrier.
“Whether it’s 40 minutes from home or 40 hours, I’m going to be happy wherever I go, but it would be great,” Ollison said. “My last high school game was on that field. … The Bills Mafia, everything about Buffalo, I love it.”
