Ideally, if you’re in the NFL, you would take a plane to get from the city of Chicago to Buffalo.
However, what if you miss your connecting flight?
Well, if you’re former Nebraska Cornhuskers wide receiver Brandon Reilly — who played in Lincoln from 2013-2016 and is currently on the Buffalo Bills — you can take an Uber. Reilly initially traveled to Omaha during the team’s bye week.
This also isn’t the first time a Bills player has been stranded in Chicago, looking to get back to Buffalo.
Bills cornerback Shareece Wright faced the same dilemma and took the Uber way out as well. Reilly remembered how Wright’s scenario played out — which was successful — so the pass-catcher decided to do the same.
“I was pretty tired,” Reilly said, via buffalorumblings.com. “I remembered talking to Shareece about his trip, so I’m like, ‘I’ll give it a try.’ The third driver finally took it.”
Reilly had to catch an 8 a.m. Monday meeting in Buffalo, so he told the driver he had to make it by then. The driver delivered, getting Reilly to his destination at 7:15 a.m.
