Orchard Park native Jon Corto has realized a dream by playing for his hometown team. He says he hopes that dream continues sooner rather than later during the NFL lockout.
Corto has been working out on his own doing his best to stay in shape.
"You know going to the weight room, coming here and running with the guys, that's all part of football ever since you're growing up so to say that just because of this lockout happening we're not going to work hard, I know personally I'm in great shape. I've been going at it just as hard, if not harder on my own here."
Running back Fred Jackson, receiver Lee Evans, and cornerback Terrence McGee have joined Corto from time to time. That number is about to increase in a big way as Corto says close to 30 Bills players will come together to work out on their own next week.
Corto is entering his fifth year in the NFL, all with the Bills, and has been a reserve linebacker and safety during his career. He's played a significant role on special teams.
The Bills signed Corto to a contract extension before the start of the lockout.
