A big smile crossed Bills cornerback Leodis McKelvin's face today when asked whether he was excited to see former teammate David Nelson on Sunday.
"Most definitely. You know, it's always good to see David," McKelvin said of Nelson, who spent his first three seasons with the Bills as an undrafted free agent out of Florida. "Just to go against him in a real-live situation instead of at practice, it's going to be very interesting to see what he comes out with."
Nelson signed with the Jets on Oct. 2. In five games with the team, he's caught 16 passes for 199 yards.
"He's been doing a good job. He's hungry. He’s trying to go out there and make plays so he can solidify himself a spot on the roster," McKelvin said. "He's going to be ready to play. You'll have to be on your toes if your lined up against him."
McKelvin also expects it to be pretty noisy on the field.
"We'll get to rapping back and forth, chomping at each other," he said. "I'm looking forward to going at him in a real game."
Nelson made it clear earlier this week that he's got Sunday's game circled on his calendar.
"Anybody who tells you when they play an old team or a team that cut them or something like that, that it's just another game, is lying to you," Nelson said. "This isn't just another game for me, it's going to be personal and I think you'll see that on Sunday."
