Marker Inside slant [7:24 PM]

Marker Notes, quotes [7:23 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I think everything we went through last year is going to make us a better team. We overcame adversity. We went through a lot of things. (Starting 0-4) that would have been the perfect time for a team to tear apart because of all the hard work they put into it and not have success. But with our guys, there was never a time where I said, 'We're losing them.' They hung in there. They stayed the course. They almost pulled off an unbelievable feat to be where they were at 3-6 and have a chance to be in the playoffs. It's definitely something we can build on." - Bills coach Mike Mularkey, speaking at the recent owners meeting in Hawaii.'

Marker Gomez Snaps Up NFL Europe Opportunity [5:15 PM] reports: '"Everything is about timing and situations in this league," said Gomez. "I think I have a pretty good situation (in Buffalo) and basically I'm just looking for a chance to compete for a job. If there is anyway that I could help the team, whether it's as a long snapper, on special teams, or as a tight end, that's what I look to do."'

Marker Green won’t trade picks for Henry [9:37 AM]
East Valley Tribune reports: 'One source familiar with the talks said that while the Cardinals had originally been looking for something extra in addition to Henry in exchange for Shelton — as was pointed out by Buffalo general manager Tom Donahoe Wednesday during a national radio interview — that was no longer the case. Henry has one year left on his contract, but Green not only emphasized that wouldn’t be an impediment to getting a deal done, he said the Cards would want Henry to play out his deal before committing to a new contract. "We don’t really know his value," Green said. "If Travis did do a deal with us, he would not be satisfied with it. . . . We’d rather him prove he should get the big money."'

Marker Draft may spark Cards-Bills talks [5:01 AM]
Arizona Republic reports: '"Arizona understands our position, we understand theirs. So probably, unless somebody wants to blink, it's probably not going to get done. Sometimes as you get closer to the draft, and these ideas that looked like they were dead, they start to take on a new life. "So we will keep the door open and will continue to look, because that is probably the fair thing to do."'

Marker Bannan, Peters Line Up [11:56 AM] reports: 'The switch is a risk for Bannan who goes from one side of the ball to the other in the final year of his contract. "It is a risk," Bannan admitted. "I can go over there and it might not pan out like I want it to or the Bills want it to, but it's a risk I'm willing to take. If all else fails I'll go back to defense, but this is something I'm looking forward to and I want to help the team and win. If the coaches think I can be a good fit on the other side then why not? I'm ready to give it a shot."'
