Nicklaus: Buffalo A 'Good Place' for O'Leary

Nick O'Leary was drafted by the Bills in round six of the NFL draft. His grandfather, legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, believes O'Leary landed with a good team.

Jack Nicklaus is regarded by many as the greatest golf of all-time. The Buffalo Bills hope that Nick O'Leary, Nicklaus' grandson, can become one of the greatest tight ends of all-time. The legendary golfer believes that his grandson has landed in a good situation in Buffalo. Nicklaus released the following statement to the Buffalo News on Saturday.

"Buffalo is a young, up-and-coming team with a bright future. It should be a good place for Nick.

"Buffalo’s got a tremendous defense; they have made a lot of changes on offense; and Rex Ryan is a players' coach. I tell you one thing, Buffalo got one heck of a football player in Nick. He is a heck of an athlete. He’s a hard worker. He’s got great hands. And he’s a lot faster than he tested, I’m going to promise you that."

Nicklaus won 18 career major championships during his golf career. Bills fans can only hope that O'Leary can win a few championships of his own with Buffalo.
