Marker NFL Draft: Priorities Lie Up Front [4:49 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Most of those upgrades sit up front on both sides of the ball, while developing depth is the main focus at the other positions. Surprisingly some of the upgrades the Bills are looking to make through the draft are realistic even though at press time they did not possess a first round pick. The main reason is the draft lacks big name talent, and there really isn't a consensus top pick this spring. If ever there was a year to not have a first round pick it might be 2005.'

Marker Hearst headlines Bills' visitors [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If he stays healthy, Hearst could be a good fit as a backup to Willis McGahee in the Bills' backfield. It's a spot the Bills are expected to address should they consummate a much-awaited Henry-for-L.J. Shelton trade with the Arizona Cardinals.'

The Villages Daily Sun reports: '"I got my first job at a little 500-watt (station) in Dunkirk," Miller said. "They had this guy doing basketball who was so bad that I went in to see the station manager and I told him you need a play-by-play guy. He said 'well you've never done it before Miller.' And I says to him, 'sure I have.' So he has me go into the studio and make up a game. Well I had been doing that since I was a kid, so this is no problem. I do a game and I have the owner make a 30-footer at the buzzer to win the game and he says 'You're hired.'"'

BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Stamer admits while he was there to concentrate on football, the opportunity to travel around Europe is something he will never forget.

The serving size is different and the seasoning and the taste is different. I thought it was a little bland. We eat too much with huge portions in America."'

Marker Bills Team Report [7:06 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Bills are keeping an eye on TE Mark Campbell's recovery from reconstructive knee surgery that sidelined him for the last four games in 2004. He is several weeks into his rehabilitation, which is progressing so well the team believes he might be healthy enough to play early in training camp. The Bills are counting on Campbell's return because he is expected to be a key part of the offense. He is a solid run blocker with the size (6-6, 255), strength and leverage to hold his own at the line of scrimmage. He's also a good receiver who runs good routes, has strong hands and a knack for finding soft spots in the secondary. If healthy, he'll be a solid receiving option for young QB J.P. Losman.'

Marker J.P. Losman [9:11 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bledsoe combined a cannon arm, 12 years of experience and cement feet. He could not get the Bills into the playoffs. Losman has a cannon arm and a picture-perfect delivery, and he runs like a gazelle. His potential to create spectacular plays on the move will make the Bills' offense look much different this fall. Scouts say he also has the toughness of a linebacker. We've heard that analogy before, and we like it.'

Marker Inside slant [7:24 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'If Henry wants to sit out the 2005 season, pass on earning his $1.25 million salary, and eventually become an unrestricted free agent, good luck, Donahoe said.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [7:23 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Offensive tackle. Following the departure of Jonas Jennings, Mike Williams might switch to the left side. Either way, Mike Gandy isn't the answer as a starter. The Bills need someone who can step in and play on the left or right side.'

Marker Notes, quotes [7:23 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I think everything we went through last year is going to make us a better team. We overcame adversity. We went through a lot of things. (Starting 0-4) that would have been the perfect time for a team to tear apart because of all the hard work they put into it and not have success. But with our guys, there was never a time where I said, 'We're losing them.' They hung in there. They stayed the course. They almost pulled off an unbelievable feat to be where they were at 3-6 and have a chance to be in the playoffs. It's definitely something we can build on." - Bills coach Mike Mularkey, speaking at the recent owners meeting in Hawaii.'

BuffaloBills.com reports: '"Everything is about timing and situations in this league," said Gomez. "I think I have a pretty good situation (in Buffalo) and basically I'm just looking for a chance to compete for a job. If there is anyway that I could help the team, whether it's as a long snapper, on special teams, or as a tight end, that's what I look to do."'

Marker Green won’t trade picks for Henry [9:37 AM]
East Valley Tribune reports: 'One source familiar with the talks said that while the Cardinals had originally been looking for something extra in addition to Henry in exchange for Shelton — as was pointed out by Buffalo general manager Tom Donahoe Wednesday during a national radio interview — that was no longer the case. Henry has one year left on his contract, but Green not only emphasized that wouldn’t be an impediment to getting a deal done, he said the Cards would want Henry to play out his deal before committing to a new contract. "We don’t really know his value," Green said. "If Travis did do a deal with us, he would not be satisfied with it. . . . We’d rather him prove he should get the big money."'
