"The Bills' vaunted defense bogged down a bit last year, but there was nothing wrong with the work of big Ron McDole. The deceptively quick 6-2 1/2", 278-pound end hounded quarterbacks and manhandled enemy tackles to lead the Buffalo charge. It was the second good year in a row for McDole, who seems to be settling into a consistent pattern now.
He was troubled earlier in his career by migraine headaches, which may account for his nomadic life as a pro. After graduating from Nebraska, he played briefly as an offensive tackle for the St. Louis Cardinals, then moved into the AFL as a defensive end with the Oilers. He was cut, and that's when the Bills picked him up."
