The Sports Xchange reports: 'When Vincent was set to return, coordinator Jerry Gray was ready to insert Vincent back at left cornerback, but with second-year pro Terrence McGee playing well and the Bills making a strong playoff push, Vincent felt it was in the club's best interest not to rock the boat. His long-range career plan was to shift to free safety eventually, only now the timetable was pushed up.'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:14 AM]

Florida Times Union reports: '"We're not going to budge. We feel we've already lessened the asking price. We don't think we could go below that. We think we're giving away for a three,'' Donahoe said. "We think that a three is pretty fair for a starting caliber running back, somebody who's been to the Pro Bowl. It's been perplexing to us why we haven't been able to get it done.'''

They have a fall back, which would be us, and now it is a matter of getting something else."'

June 27, 2005

Marker Sophomore Approach for Bills Coach [4:42 PM] reports: '"I'm not as fatigued as I was last year," Mularkey said. "A lot of that was because there was a lot to do with the staff, the draft, the camps … there's just a lot to do. And I was prepared for most of it. But there was still more than I had anticipated, and I could just tell physically I have a little more energy now than I did a year ago. I've also been getting home a little earlier than I have been (now that the Bills' Organized Team Activities have ended) and touching up on some little things in the office here that I can do this year that I couldn't do last year, because I was still going 90 [miles an hour]."'

Marker AFC EAST: Key questions heading into camp [9:34 PM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Actually, this is a playoff team for sure if Losman can avoid being the Buffalo Bust.'

Marker Bills Team Report [7:52 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Bills' relative free agent inactivity is not surprising. Because of their salary cap situation, they had no desire to make a big splash on the open market like they have the previous three seasons. They also didn't attack free agency hard because they don't think there are many holes on the roster. The Bills are always looking for players who will make them better, but they are willing to stand pat because they believe they have the personnel needed to make a strong run to the postseason.'

Marker Inside slant [6:14 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey has scheduled a team-high of four night practices for training camp, a decision that's filled with so many positives it's hard to believe NFL teams don't practice every day under the lights in the summertime. In addition to it being a safer time to work out and beat the effects of heat, night workouts tend to be more spirited and more productive. From the marketing end, more fans can attend without having to skip work. Translation: more merchandise and concession stand sales.'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:13 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"J.P. needs to make friends with those five starting linemen as soon as he can. On the field he has to let his blockers know where he'll be. I played with two different types of quarterbacks. With Jim Kelly, you knew where he would be because he couldn't move around that much. With Doug Flutie, you never knew where he was going to be." - Bills Wall of Fame center Kent Hull, talking about what new QB J.P. Losman needs to do to be successful.'
