Former Bills General Manager and Hall of Fame nominee Bill Polian is now refuting a report he could return to the Bills front office.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com published an article saying Polian could be back in Buffalo as soon as Monday.

It has been 15 years since the Bills have made the playoffs.  They were eliminated from postseason contention this year with a 26-24 loss to Oakland in Week 16.

Polian told The Buffalo News that Florio's article is “about as wrong as can be.”

Polian last worked with the Bills from 1984 to 1993, serving first as the Pro Personnel Director (1984-1985) and then GM from 1986-1993.

The report indicates it is unclear what duties Polian would have, saying the Bills could "engineer" a job as a means to avoid resetting his election into the Hall of Fame.

Polian was nominated as a "contributor" nominee for the Class of 2015 in October.

Polian also had his name placed on the Wall of Fame at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2012.
