Marker Something is better than nothing for Henry [8:50 AM]

Marker Haslett admits to using steroids [5:28 AM]
Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports: 'He described the introduction of steroids by the Bills to one of their new teammates in the 1980s. "I played with a guy who came into the league, he came out of the USFL," Haslett said. "He was 270, and he would never have made our team if he didn't get up to 300. The linemen got him together, got him a little supplemental pill for the week and he got up to about 305 and made our team. And he's probably one of the all-time great players in Bills history. He was a great player." While his description fits former Bills center Kent Hull, Haslett would not name him. Hull joined the Bills from the USFL New Jersey Generals in 1986 and played 11 seasons in Buffalo.'

While acknowledging the dangers of steroids, Haslett said he increased his bench press by 40 pounds during the weeks he was using steroids and didn't need as much recovery time between lifting sessions.'

March 22, 2005

Marker Lee Evans Player Diary: A Whirlwind Day [5:01 PM] reports: 'It's really hard to put into words what it feels like waiting to be drafted, but I guess it's similar to when you're a little kid waiting for Christmas to come. Sooner or later you know it's going to come, and you're just kind of waiting and waiting. It's that type of feeling.'

Marker Henry says let's make a deal [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We are grateful to the Bills for giving us the chance to talk to other teams," said Engelhard, who is based in Atlanta. "We're talking with a number of teams. But the team that has shown the greatest interest is Arizona, which has offered L.J. Shelton. We feel like the player-for-player trade is the right deal. It helps both teams fill voids."'

Marker Henry More Unhappy, Burns Signs, Wire Restructures [5:21 AM]

Marker Bills RB Henry prepared to sit out until trade demand met [9:26 PM]
AP reports: '``I'm definitely not going back to Buffalo if that's what you want to hear,'' the running back told The Associated Press on Monday from his home in Orlando, Fla. ``No minicamps.

Marker Bills Team Report [7:30 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'Re-signing veteran TE Ryan Neufeld was important because he gives the team much-needed stability at the position. The top two tight ends, Mark Campbell and Tim Euhus, are recovering from reconstructive knee surgeries and may not be healthy until the start of training camp at the earliest. While the team will likely add another tight end through free agency or the draft, Neufeld's experience and knowledge of the offense are assets it could not do without.'

Marker Bills' draft plans could center on the offensive line [8:59 AM]

Marker Inside slant [5:45 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"There has been much information and misinformation about the salary cap," Donahoe said. "The salary cap is somewhat like the stock market in that an individual team's salary cap can change almost daily depending on the moves that you make."'

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:44 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills have to start getting serious about upgrading their line; it's just not in the league of Pittsburgh's, Indianapolis', or New England's, the teams to beat in the AFC. Landing a veteran or good rookie would allow Trey Teague to be shifted to left tackle.'

Marker Notes, quotes [5:43 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'First the offensive line, now the secondary. Buffalo's decision to release veterans or not sign its own free agents has created gaps in its lineup that didn't exist when last season ended.'

Marker Ex-Raven Anderson visits with Bills [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Anderson, 28, started four straight years for the Ravens at right guard. He's known as a mauler, good at run blocking. Pulling and playing an athletic style are not considered his strengths.'
