It's not exactly a Moneyball wave, but more teams are openly talking about embracing analytics in football.
New Buffalo Bills president Russ Brandon spoke on Tuesday about establishing an analytics department to support his traditional football operations. Brandon used to work in baseball, where sabermetrics are a more established part of the game after the last decade.
"We've seen it in the NBA. We've seen it more in baseball. It's starting to spruce its head a little bit in football, and I feel we're missing the target if we don't invest in that area of our operation, and we will," Brandon said, via The Buffalo News.
