Ellicott City View reports: 'Being chosen by the Bills came somewhat as a shock, explained King on Monday. “I had no idea they’d draft me. They said they thought I was going to be a steal. They hadn’t drafted a defensive back in two years so it says a lot,” said King.'

Marker Gause among Bills' signings [8:54 AM]

Buffalo News reports: 'It was Donahoe's job to get a deal done. He overplayed his hand. The draft is done and the market for running backs has been significantly weakened.

Marker More than draft defines Bills’ roster [7:31 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“We’ve got to be careful with numbers because we can only sign so many guys. We might be talking to five receivers knowing we can only sign two so we say to all five, ‘Look, it’s really first-come, first served.’ As soon as we get a guy, we might be out of the market for a receiver. So it’s a hectic time, but it’s a fun time.”'

Marker Bills still hopeful for Henry solution [5:02 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'At this juncture, it may be in Buffalo's best interest to wait until summer when teams suffer training camp injuries and may be forced to find another back. That could give the Bills some negotiating leverage in a league now crawling with running backs.'

Marker Bills add reinforcements for Losman [8:52 AM]

Marker Bills banking on offensive improvement [8:52 AM]

Marker Four area products sign free-agent deals [7:23 AM]

Marker Bills address need at No. 3 WR with Parrish [7:13 AM]
Pro Football Weekly reports: 'The selection of Parrish seems to indicate the Bills' displeasure with their current crop of receivers looking to fill the No. 3 role, most notably Josh Reed, a second-round pick in 2002, and Sam Aiken, a fourth-rounder in ’03. Parrish also will further strengthen the Bills' top-rated special teams, giving them a punt returner who is a threat to take it all the way each time he catches the ball. They already have a kick returner in Terrence McGee who poses the same threat on kickoffs, with McGee having returned three kicks for touchdowns in 2004.'
