Report: Bills GM Whaley wants Roman out as OC

According to a report from Jason La Canfora, Doug Whaley wants the team to part ways with offensive coordinator Greg Roman

It's been a busy morning for the Buffalo Bills as far as reports go. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Sunday that Bills GM Doug Whaley is at odds with the coaching staff and a showdown could occur this offseason. 

Per the report, sources have told La Canfora that one of the biggest issues Whaley has is Buffalo's inability to feature receiver Sammy Watkins. Whaley moved up in the 2014 draft to select the receiver that he felt would be a gamechanger for Buffalo. However, entering Week 15, the receiver has only been targeted 64 times this season. La Canfora goes on to state that Whaley would like to see Buffalo part ways with offensive coordinator Greg Roman. Here is an excerpt from La Canfora's report:

"He would also prefer the team move on from offensive coordinator Greg Roman and others, though it is highly unlikely owner Terry Pegula would support such measures."

Roman is in his first year as Bills offensive coordinator. Although Watkins hasn't been featured as much as he possibly should be, Roman deserves credit for how his offense has helped develop Tyrod Taylor in his first season as a starter. 

Truthfully, it's a bit odd that the report states that Whaley would like to see Roman out as offensive coordinator since the defense has been a bigger liability for the Bills this season.
