Marker Bills to dump Bledsoe? [5:35 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'According to several league sources, the Bills want to hand J.P. Losman, their first-round pick in 2004, the starting QB job. Bledsoe, 33, would not be interested in the backup role, two sources close to him were reported to have said.'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:34 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'There are a few skeptics in the locker room about whether second-year QB J.P. Losman is ready to replace Drew Bledsoe as the leader of the offense. Players don't question Losman's talent. They just wonder if Losman's feel for reading defenses and decision-making can match his physical skills in his first year as a starter.'

Marker Bills demote Bledsoe, may soon release QB [7:34 PM]
Lawrence Eagle Tribune reports: 'According to a source in Bills management, Bledsoe was informed last week that he was out as the starting quarterback for 2005. General manager Terry Donahoe told Bledsoe that J.P. Losman, who will enter his second season in the fall, would be the No. 1 quarterback. Bledsoe was offered the opportunity to remain with the team as a backup, which would have meant forgoing a $1 million bonus in March and cutting his salary from $3.3 million to about $1.5 million. Bledsoe refused the request, saying he wanted to be a starter. He asked the Bills to cut him soon and allow him to become a free agent. The Bills said they would honor his request and probably release him in the next two weeks.'

Marker If at first you don't succeed... [7:24 AM]
Allentown Morning Call reports: '''We could've packed it in after that first loss,'' Reed said. ''But we came to camp the next year with the same goal. And after every Super Bowl loss that followed, we did the same thing. It really speaks to the kind of team we were and the kind of coaching we had. We never gave up on that dream.'''

Marker Report: Bills rework contract of WR Moulds [5:13 AM]
Sportsticker reports: 'According to the report, Moulds, who signed the richest contract in team history in 2001, was scheduled to get a $5.5 million base salary and $1 million bonus next season. Under his new deal, the nine-year veteran will get the the same amount in 2005 - except $1.5 million will be in salary and $5 million will be part of the bonus. Since the bonus can be spread out over the life of the deal, Moulds' cap number is expected to drop from $8.6 million to $5.16 million in 2005.'

Marker Bills OK 3-year deal with Moulds [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The agreement is for three years and keeps Moulds under contract through 2007. His old pact was to run out in 2006, but his salary cap numbers were going to be costly in 2005 and exorbitant in 2006.'

Marker Bills, Moulds will restructure contract [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Wide receiver Eric Moulds agreed to restructure his contract — the details are expected to be finalized in the next few days — and that maneuver should create an extra $2 million in salary cap room, meaning the Bills would be approximately $12 million under the cap.'

Marker Nolan, Crennel could struggle with move to 3-4 [4:32 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The decision has essentially already been made by Bills officials, several sources told, that Losman, who missed much of his rookie season recovering from a broken leg suffered in training camp, will be the starter in 2005. In fact, it is believed that Buffalo officials have apprised Drew Bledsoe of the plan to elevate the former Tulane star to the top of the depth chart and are giving the 12-year veteran some time to consider the ramifications of the move, and to determine if he wants to return to the Bills as the backup.'

Marker Bills Pro Bowl Fun Fast Facts [4:28 PM] reports: 'Defensive end Bruce Smith was selected for the Pro Bowl 11 times with the Bills, the most by any player in team history.'

Marker Eerie Situation for Bledsoe [1:07 PM] reports: 'There are too many teams in dire need of Bledsoe’s veteran play, and unlike many people think he can turn around a team. He still has the tendency to hold onto the football too long, but when he is playing his game he is one of the top ten quarterbacks in the league. His deep ball is still there, and we all saw that in the second half of the season for the Bills, when rookie receiver Josh Reed started filling up the stat column.'

Marker No winners in Erie County budget crisis [12:48 PM]
AP reports: 'In the meantime, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and his son, Hunter, will be celebrating their shared Valentine's Day birthday at the Buffalo Bills Field House instead of Chestnut Ridge Park, which for five years has been the site of Hunter's Day of Hope for Children but is now closed due to the county's fiscal plight. The annual event raises research money for nervous system diseases, like the deadly Krabbe's disease that afflicts Hunter.'

Marker You have to tip your cap to Moulds [12:32 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Moulds hasn't always been happy playing for the Bills. He's complained at times about the offense and his role in it. There were times he wondered if he had a future in Buffalo. But those feelings were born out of frustration. There's no place Moulds would rather be than Buffalo. He likes living and playing here. There is something to be said for loyalty, and agreeing to a contract extension shows that Moulds is committed to the Bills.'

Marker South O'Brien to honor hometown hero [5:19 AM]
Sioux City Journal reports: 'The Bills have exclusive free rights to Stamer, so he'll find out around March 1 whether he'll be playing there again next season. If he does, Buffalo can sign him for the third-year minimum salary. That, of course, is the the probable scenario, but if the Bills don't sign him, then he'll try to catch on with another team.'

Marker Moulds Contract Extension [10:05 PM] reports: 'Moulds is signed through the 2006 season, the result of a six year extension agreed to in 2001. The new deal would allow the Bills to receive salary cap relief for 2005.'

Marker Bills Defense Looks to Shine in Hawaii [4:01 PM] reports: '"Collectively, when you have someone get selected for something like this it stands for a unit being successful," Adams said upon hearing he had been selected to his third Pro Bowl. "One person can't have any success without 10 other guys being there. If one person on the defense isn't doing their job then it's going to be a bad defense. When you have a solid defense that makes plays you have people that get recognized and it's because of everyone."'

Marker Offseason Game Plan: Bills [2:14 PM] reports: 'Once the Henry situation is resolved, all eyes will be on the expected quarterback battle between veteran Drew Bledsoe and 2004 first-round pick J.P. Losman. Bledsoe had a decent 2004, but the Bills didn't trade up for Losman just to keep him on the bench. Even if Bledsoe gets the starting nod, he'll probably be just a poor outing or two away from giving up the keys to his young understudy.'

Marker Moulds to get new deal [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While terms of the negotiations were not available, Moulds will likely receive just as much money this year, but his cap figure would go down significantly because the money would get spread out, for cap purposes, for more seasons.'

"I really worked hard and I'm hoping to go over to NFL Europe and show everybody I still have what it takes to become a successful kicker in the NFL."'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:35 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'After a strong rookie year, WR Josh Reed's play has been in decline the past two seasons. He needs to a strong offseason to show the team he still can be an effective No. 3 receiver. Reed is a good route runner, but needs to get more separation from defenders. He entered the NFL with a reputation as a sure-handed receiver. But he's dropped an alarming number of passes the past two seasons. He has to strengthen his concentration and play with more confidence. If Reed doesn't show progress, the team will replace him with someone on the roster or in free agency and/or the draft.'

In sports and [with] the great athletes that have been recognized, this is one of the most coveted awards in the NFL," Carter said. "He was humbled by being able to receive the award. He told me, 'Cris, now that you'll be there, I don't have to worry about it. I can just concentrate and take care of my family.'"'

Marker Giants' win a super example of strategy [9:26 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: 'For the game, the Giants held the ball a Super Bowl-record 40:33; the Bills just 19:27. The game's best player was Thomas, who had 190 yards (135 rushing, 55 receiving): He averaged an amazing 9.77 yards per minute his offense was on the field. But the game's best team was the Giants. Their strategy worked, and they won what many people think was the most exciting Super Bowl.'
