On Sunday, the Buffalo Bills released a statement claiming that they have suspended offensive line coach Aaron Kromer for the first 6 games of the 2015 season without pay. Kromer was originally arrested for allegedly punching a teenage boy in the mouth for using his beach chairs. The Bills would go on to say the following:
“Over the past several weeks the Bills organization has gathered information regarding the incident,” Bills president Russ Brandon said in a statement released through the team. “We worked in conjunction with the NFL on this matter and we are highly supportive of the NFL Personal Conduct Policy that holds all NFL and club employees to a higher standard. … We look forward to coach Kromer rejoining the Bills organization at training camp.”
The 48-year old joined Buffalo back in January after spending two seasons with the Chicago Bears. How will this affect the team? Apart from distractions within the organization, E.J. Manuel and the Bills’ offense may hurt without their number-one option for an offensive line coach.
