Marker Moving Day in Buffalo [6:56 AM]
SI reports: 'Any experienced office mover will tell you: The best time to go treasure hunting is moving day.

Marker Bills’ Bradham feels blessed [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I never want to be in that situation again. I’ll make sure I never put myself in that situation again,” Bradham said Tuesday after the Bills wrapped up their third day of training camp at St. John Fisher College. “That was one of the main things this offseason was refocusing, and not hanging around the guys who I was hanging around, because they’re not really friends. The guys who are out here grinding with me are my friends. That’s what I had to learn.”'

Marker Bills offense struggles during Tuesday practice [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I thought we had a good day," Manuel said, a somewhat surprising response given the evidence of what transpired during the two-hour-plus session at St. John Fisher College. "It was the first third-down day so we have to continue to get better, but it was the first full pad practice and I thought we ran the ball well and threw the ball well."'

Marker Bills have four Buffalo natives on roster [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I dunked on Naaman in high school,” Williams said with a smile Tuesday. “They beat us — he played for St. Joe’s and I played at Riverside — but I dunked on him real bad. It was an ‘And one’ and the crowd was going crazy.”'

Marker Curse of Doug Flutie or just rotten luck? [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Fourteen years out of the post-season, a collective record of 88-136, six different general managers, seven head coaches, 11 starting quarterbacks, and still the fans come. As if the Bills have bottled the secret to marketing mediocrity.'

Marker Sammy Watkins to stop by Frontier Field [1:52 AM]

Marker Jeff Tuel pushing Thad Lewis for Bills backup quarterback job at training camp [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I looked at it quite a few times," Tuel said. "One of those things you look at the good, you look at the bad, you move on and you learn. It just seems like from where I am now to where I was then, already I feel like a different player. It's crazy just to think, it may sound funny to some, not even a year from it I feel like I know so much more now than I did then."'

Marker Jerry Hughes continues strong play and 5 other observations from Buffalo Bills training camp [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Manuel was fine, but the Bills obviously don't want him taking hits in practice. What they do want, though, is that type of disruption and fire and Hughes, who had double-digit sacks for the first time in his career last year. Tuesday was a day Hughes had been waiting for as the Bills practiced in pads before the first time.'

Marker Peter King thinks Buffalo Bills cornerback Stephon Gilmore will make the Pro Bowl in 2014 [1:46 AM]

Marker Bills QB, coach differ on offense's performance [1:43 AM]
AP reports: 'Marrone also wasn't pleased with Manuel's inability to get the ball off during several 7-on-7 drills, when the quarterback decided to take off and run. "I'm not fine with that," Marrone said. "I mean, it's 7-on-7. We want to throw the football down the field."'

Marker Bills' sloppy offense concerns Marrone [1:40 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"It's never just what you see. You always have to have a basis," said Manuel. "We're a progression-based offense and you always are going to go through your progressions someway, somehow. So if nobody is open, do a realistic thing, throw it away or take off and run."'

Marker Dareus delayed in getting back to Bills camp [1:37 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Adding another layer to the story, Dareus also hasn't been able to take the field for the team after a failed conditioning test on Saturday.

Marker Bills center optimistic about QB and OL [1:35 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"Luckily we have a lot of familiar faces back" Wood said. "We have Chris Williams at left guard, that’s our only new addition once Cordy gets back. We have pretty good chemistry or should have with that starting five. The good thing is we have a lot of talented back ups now and they’re competing for starting jobs. If they can beat out one of the starters that will mean they’re playing pretty good ball."'

Marker Run game working, Tuel earns reps [1:33 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“The offensive line can block and get some contact once they put the pads and they were definitely opening up some holes for us,” said Fred Jackson. “We notice it and it’s always the best part for us running backs when we can put the pads on and feel some contact out there.”'

Marker Bills waive one linebacker, sign another [1:32 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Boyd entered the league earlier this year as an undrafted free agent with the Baltimore Ravens.

Boyd is 23 years old and a native of St. Petersburg, FL.'

Marker Doug Marrone: ''It's a new year'' [1:31 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Just because we did some good things last year doesn’t mean we’re necessarily going to be able to do that again. We still have to come in and commit to working hard and trying to establish that. It’s a new year, if you think you’re just going to roll out there and run the ball well, that couldn't be further from the truth. Every year you have to go back out and build a foundation, and it’s going to take a while. Today was the first day in pads, and this is something that will develop as we go along in camp.'
