Marker Frank Coyle: Bills hope D-linemen fall in draft [7:02 PM]
Shout! reports: The Bills do not have a first-round pick in April, but they hope to draft a top defensive performer in the second and third rounds. Buffalo, of course, will debate the possibilities. Drafting an offensive playmaker is not entirely out of the question. Still, defensive linemen are Buffalo's biggest need and that is a fairly strong group with the addition of underclassmen.

Marker Thomas runs with idea of helping others [9:08 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Oh, man. It's almost now like I'm the president of AA. Everywhere I go at least four or five people come up to me and thank me. It's been amazing to me I've been able to touch as many lives as I've touched with me coming out and saying I'm a recovering alcoholic."'

Marker Williams believes LeBeau is good fit [5:29 AM]
D and C reports: '“He’d bring 40-plus years of experience and a lot of things he brings defensively, he innovated in this league,” Williams said. “I think he would bring a breath of fresh air ... and (be) another ear for me, to help me a lot as far as some of the administrative duties a coach does.”'

Marker Transcript of interview with Don Blackmon [2:46 PM] reports: "When I talked to Coach Williams it was a good meeting. And I was excited about the opportunity to come here and join this franchise, they've done a good job.

As far as just being here, just having the opportunity to work with good people, it's important."
