Buffalo Bills: Things We Know This Week



Carlos Basham prefers to be called “BOOGIE.” Leslie Frazier, the defensive coordinator for Basham’s first two NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills, initially did not do “nicknames.”

“I can remember my first sack of the season against L.A. He called me Boogie then. He’s like, ‘I’m gonna call you Boogie when you make a big play.’” — Carlos Basham

Frazier has consistently wanted the big man, Basham, to play BIGGER.
