Marker Draft a QB at 10? Tyrod Taylor says he's not worried if the Bills do just that [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Just like any other position, in order to do our job the right way, for us to just ignore certain positions wouldn't be doing my job, or" General Manager Doug Whaley "doing his job. We're going to look at every position, so that we know that 'X' player is sitting there, we know them inside and out and we can make a good, solid decision for this organization. Quarterback is no different."'

Marker A dark, dreary, dysfunctional day for Buffalo sports [1:52 AM]

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Hot Read: One GM down, one to go [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While this latest purge is a bold and warranted one, it surely doesn't paint the Pegulas as a stable sports ownership.

Marker 3 reasons the Bills should draft: Louisville S Josh Harvey-Clemons [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'At 6-foot-4, Harvey-Clemons is massive for a safety. Because of that, he could play some hybrid linebacker.

Again, the scouts come up with some good information for us. With on-campus visits and the ways they dig to find information, it's always interesting to find out some of that information that comes available, right? Some teams get it and some teams don't. That's an important part for us and the evaluation of character."'

Marker Tyrod Taylor doesn't care if Buffalo Bills draft a quarterback at 10 [1:41 AM]
