BUFFALO, NY-- Bills cornerback Terrence McGee is back in Western New York this week to help kick off the annual Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball tournament, and to workout with some of his Bills teammates.
McGee is excited to be a sponsor of the tournament, "I've been in this community for a while, going on my ninth year so it's positive for the community," McGee said at the announcement. "It's always good for the city."
McGee has also started to workout with some of his teammates as they try to stay in shape during the lockout. "It's very important because at anytime they can say comeback, it's time to go back to work and you don't want to look like that guy that hasn't been doing anything."
The Bills players are working out on their own and can not have any contact with the Bills organization or their coaches during the lockout.
Once the season does get underway McGee will have some new competition in the Bills secondary. Buffalo selected three, new defensive backs in the NFL draft, including cornerback Aaron Williams with their second round pick. "A little kid asked me that the other day, how do you feel about all the cornerbacks they got I was like they felt like they needed cornerbacks so they got cornerbacks and they got a d-lineman with the first pick so I felt like they had a pretty good draft."
McGee says the time-off during the lockout has been beneficial, "it gave me a little extra time to heal from all my injuries and also spend a little more extra time with my family. But now you're feeling like I want to get back to work."
