A few connections between the Bills and Panthers:
-Panthers DL Dwan Edwards played for the Buffalo Bills in 2010 and 2011
-The NFL Career of Panthers GM Dave Gettleman began in 1986 as a Bills scouting department intern. From 1987-92, Gettleman worked as a full-time scout for Buffalo.
-Panthers Assistant Offensive Line Coach Ray Brown held the same position with the Bills from 2008-09. In both of his years in Buffalo, the offensive line blocked for 1,000 yard rushers (Marshawn Lynch in 2008, Fred Jackson in 2009)
-Panthers Assistant ST Coach Bruce DeHaven coached the Bills special teams unit from 1987-1999 and 2010-2012. The Bills ranked first in the NFL in 2011 by limiting opponents to 20.4 yards per return. From 1987-99, DeHaven was part of a Bills era that included four consecutive Super Bowl appearances and six AFC East championships.
