Marker Bills' Henry still on Cards' list [5:01 AM]
Arizona Republic reports: 'The proposed trade is more complicated than just swapping Shelton for Henry, because Henry has just one year left on his contract. Before agreeing to the deal, the Cardinals probably would like to reach agreement on a long-term deal with Henry.'

Marker Immobility sends Bledsoe on the move [5:00 AM]
Seattle Post Intelligencer reports: 'The problem was Bledsoe's mobility, or lack of it. "We just felt that our offense needed a little more mobility," Bills coach Mike Mularkey said. "Some of the things we like to do with running the quarterback and his ability to escape. Every year the pass rush just seems to get more fierce and faster, and we just felt we needed a little more mobility. We knew what we had with Drew. We think this is a step forward."'

Marker Bills GM gives Henry permission to visit Arizona [10:29 PM]
AP reports: 'Shelton has already visited Buffalo, and Donahoe said the Bills have given Henry permission to visit Arizona altough that has not yet happened. "That's as far as the talks have gone," Donahoe said.

Marker Bills prepared to let Jennings and Williams become free agents [10:24 PM]
AP reports: '''We'd like to get both back if we can, but it may not be cost effective,'' Bills president Tom Donahoe said at the NFL combine in Indianapolis Thursday.'

Marker Cardinalsí front office facing busy stretch [12:17 PM]
East Valley Tribune reports: 'Teams also can begin making trades March 2, and the Cardinals are expected to deal tackle L.J. Shelton at some point. One possibility is to Buffalo for disgruntled running back Travis Henry, a deal that would likely have to include a contract extension for Henry to get completed. The Cardinals are playing coy on any of the Shelton talks, although they are known to be in discussions about dealing Shelton for Henry.'

Marker Bills like Matthews as their backup to Losman [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills are confident the more mobile Losman will add spark to their 25th-ranked offense. But will reliability be sacrificed for versatility?'

Marker Bledsoe Buries Bitter Divorce With Buffalo [5:00 AM] reports: '"The sense that I got from talking to (Bills head coach) Mike Mularkey and (Bills president/general manager) Tom Donahoe was that the move was more that they felt like they needed to get the other kid on the field," said Bledsoe, who signed a three-year deal with Dallas on Wednesday. "I suppose I can understand that. It wasn't something that I agreed with, but I've moved on and moved on to something that I believe is better."'

February 23, 2005

Marker What's the problem? Bledsoe is a good option [9:53 PM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Bledsoe doesn't fit as a player nearing career sunset. In fact, he should be at or near career peak. Even his near peak looks better to me than the offerings of predecessors Quincy Carter, Anthony Wright, Ryan Leaf, Clint Stoerner, Chad Hutchinson and Testaverde. Who among them was better?'

Marker Bledsoe Introduced In Dallas [9:51 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'One surprising statement made by Bledsoe was he was upset Mike Mularkey didn't open up the job to a competition between him and J.P. Losman. Had that happened, Bledsoe indicated he may have stayed. He said he couldn't live with not being given a chance to hold on to his job.'

Marker Bledsoe signs [9:50 PM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: '"I'm very excited to be a Dallas Cowboy. I can't wait to go home and dress my kids with the little stars and get rid of the old gear from the other team," Bledsoe said.'

Marker Dysfunction in Dallas is overblown [5:48 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The decision to sign Bledsoe, and to adopt a more prudent approach in the development of Henson (about whom some Dallas coaches have real doubts) will be viewed in a lot of different ways over the next few days. For what it's worth, here is one contrarian take on the signing: Parcells extended the career of Bledsoe by bringing him aboard. If Bledsoe plays well enough, wins, say, nine games in 2005, he'll help extend Parcells' stay as well.'

Marker Veteran's day [5:10 PM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Bledsoe said he was "disappointed and angry" he was released by Buffalo but "energized" to be in Dallas. "The passion is still there...any thoughts of retirement were fleeting," Bledsoe said.'

Marker Cowboys reunite Bledsoe, Parcells [2:24 PM]
AP reports: 'Parcells makes no secret of his affinity for his former players, believing he can trust them more. His collection in Dallas already included receivers Keyshawn Johnson and Terry Glenn and running back Richie Anderson. Glenn played with Bledsoe from 1996-2001 in New England.'

Marker Cowboys agree to deal with Bledsoe, sources say [2:23 PM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'According to several sources, the Cowboys and Bledsoe have an agreement in principle, and the veteran quarterback is in Dallas today to finalize the deal. The Cowboys have scheduled a 3 p.m. news conference.'

Marker Bills Get Ready For NFL Combine [1:15 PM] reports: 'Each NFL team will be allowed to interview 60 players for 15 minutes apiece.'

Marker Whatís in a name? [12:59 PM]
Rochester City Newspaper reports: 'The Bills' first order of business during the new J.P. Losman era is to change the second-year quarterback's last name to "Winman." Losman is pronounced LOSS-man, and that makes me uneasy. Hopefully, his name doesn't reflect his on-field performance.'

Marker Cowboys Agree To Contract With Former Bills, Patriots QB [11:28 AM] reports: 'Since Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells arrived in Dallas back in early 2003, it has been no secret he likes to reunite with former players.'

Marker Cowboy up! Bledsoe agrees to terms [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills, meanwhile, did not exercise their option to designate anybody on the roster as a franchise player or transition free agent. It means left tackle Jonas Jennings and defensive tackle Pat Williams can shop their services around the league starting March 2. The Bills are expected to attempt to sign at least one of the two. They could wind up signing both, depending on how much money they command in the open market.'

Marker Cap leaves Bills some spare change [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills are likely to be at about $78.5 million come next Wednesday. Initial estimates of the Bills having more than $10 million in cap space did not take into account several bonus payments that are included in player contracts this year.'

Marker Henry's status affects Bills' strategy [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Jennings is expected to command a signing bonus of more than $10 million alone. In recent days, huge deals have been struck with Seattle's Walter Jones (seven years, $52 million) and Indianapolis' Ryan Diem (seven years, $36 million) by their own teams to keep them in the fold.'

Marker One Drew too many [5:00 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Bledsoe playing behind the Dallas line? Jevon Kearse and Michael Strahan can almost feel their sack bonuses kicking in.'

Marker Bledsoe agrees to contract [4:59 AM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: 'The page is one ripped out of the "Bill Parcells Players" book. Parcells drafted Bledsoe first overall with the Patriots in 1993, and Bledsoe helped lead New England to Super Bowl XXXI after the 1996 season. And while Bledsoe is 23-25 in his three seasons with the Bills, in many ways he defines the "bus driver" Parcells has said he desires in a quarterback.'

Marker Bledsoe to sign with Dallas [4:58 AM]
San Antonio Express News reports: 'The addition of Bledsoe leaves Dallas with three quarterbacks, including second-year player Drew Henson and third-year pro Tony Romo. Vinny Testaverde, who started 15 games at quarterback for the Cowboys last season, will become an unrestricted free agent March 2.'

Marker Bledsoe, Cowboys Reach Agreement [4:57 AM]
Washington Post reports: 'Bledsoe likely will become the new starter for a Cowboys club that went 6-10 last season, but perhaps could improve rapidly. The Cowboys have abundant salary cap space to sign free agents, and have two first-round picks in the April draft. Dallas will turn over its running game to tailback Julius Jones, who was highly productive as a rookie last season after recovering from a shoulder injury, and Bledsoe almost certainly will start at quarterback ahead of youngsters Drew Henson and Tony Romo.'

Marker Parcells gets Cowboys to go for Bledsoe instead of Vinny [4:56 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'In the long run, this could be a heck of move for the Cowboys -- perhaps a last-gasp effort by Parcells to turn things around. The talk is he will leave the team after the 2005 season if they don't make the playoffs. Henson wouldn't do that. Bledsoe can.'

Marker Report: Bledsoe a Cowboy [4:55 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'The signing reunites Bledsoe with Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells, who drafted the signal-caller into the NFL when he was the head coach of the New England Patriots in 1993.'

Marker Drew to Dallas [4:54 AM] reports: 'And so it came to pass; Drew Bledsoe is going to Dallas to play for coach Bill Parcells again.'

Marker Henry To Cardinals? [4:53 AM] reports: 'If the Bills canít work out a deal with the Cardinals, there will be a definite alternative route with other teams. Henryís numbers from previous years arenít a fluke, and heíll make a team extremely happy next season. Just look at how quickly the NFL evolves. Not even two years ago the Bills were going into the 2003 season with Drew Bledsoe and Travis Henry as their future leaders, now itís JP Losman and Willis McGahee. This duo should be a tandem for a decent amount of time.'
