I liked scoring touchdowns and I liked dancing in the end zone, so I stuck with it. But I always loved baseball.”'

Marker Do old-guard NFL owners hold enough ill will over USFL lawsuit to block Donald Trump ? [1:57 AM]
New York Daily News reports: '“Certainly, a lot of owners aren’t around anymore. Maybe some of the new guys wouldn’t bear the same type of resentment that some of the older guys would. Do you think he would be a good partner for us or be somewhat of a maverick and be in it for himself? All questions that have to be answered. It’s not just the USFL stuff. Who knows how serious he is. He likes to have his name out there. Let’s put it this way: I don’t think his confirmation would be a slam dunk.”'

Marker Let's go Buffalo! [1:59 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'Sure, some Buffalonians might resent the Bills relocating, but the fact remains the team at present is located in the suburb of Orchard Park, a 20-minute drive from downtown Buffalo. If the new stadium was built in Niagara Falls, it would be about the same driving distance, perhaps even faster with direct links to the state Thruway, the Niagara Express Way (1-190) and the international bridges to accommodate the heavy influx from the Canadian side.'

Marker Donald Trump says Bills will stay in Buffalo if he buys team [1:58 AM]

Marker Bills Draft Outlook: Safety [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'While some may look at safety as a dark horse position for the Bills to address within the first few rounds of the draft, there is a very real possibility that they look at it as just a training camp battle that needs to unfold in July and August. Although unproven, the organization appears to be optimistic about the prospects of the former fourth-round pick Duke Williams in addition to free agent acquisition Corey Graham, who can offer versatility as a utility player for the secondary. The key with this group will likely be with the sub-packages they trot out there from play to play. Without a true starter selecting a safety can’t be ruled out completely, but the competition already on the roster in concert with more pressing needs on the team means the Bills will likely look elsewhere early on in the 2014 NFL Draft.'

Marker Age is just a number to Fred Jackson [1:56 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“I’ve always prided myself on being a physical running back, and I have to be now more than ever," he said.

It worked out for me last year and hopefully it’ll keep me going in the league as long as possible.”'

Marker Trump wants to buy Bills [1:57 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I live in New York, and it's easier for me to go to Buffalo than any other place," said Trump, who once owned the USFL's New Jersey Generals. "Where am I going to move it, some place on the other side of the country, where I have to travel for five hours?"'

Marker Bills Draft Outlook: Running Back [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills and Whaley have stated publicly that a running back would have to be of the Adrian Peterson variety to consider taking one in the first round. To this point in April, they’ve been tiering their pre-draft visitors to be ready to select one in the third round and beyond. With the lack of importance on the position, picking a running back in the first two rounds — considering how early they’re selecting — would not be a wise move. If a player they like at running back is available, the talent on their roster gives them the flexibility to select that player in the middle rounds and beyond. At the very least, expect Buffalo to add a priority undrafted free agent as soon as the final round wraps up.'

Marker Before Sproles, Eagles inquired about C.J. Spiller [1:55 AM]
CSN Philadelphia reports: 'The Eagles contacted the Bills this offseason with hopes of trading for versatile Pro Bowl running back C.J.

Marker If bad boys produce on the field, off-field issues will be forgotten [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It’s worth taking a shot. No NFL locker room is without its dubious characters nowadays. One team’s castoff can become another team’s unearthed treasure, its rehabilitated star. A lot of pro athletes begin their careers as arrested adolescents. Various Super Bowl Bills come to mind.'

Marker Under lease, court could bar any new owner from moving Buffalo Bills [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Far-fetched as that may seem, legal experts say the provisions of the Bills’ 10-year lease on Ralph Wilson Stadium and an accompanying non-relocation agreement are so tough that a new owner who wants to move the team would likely be in for a rough encounter with the law.'

Marker Tackling the Bills' draft needs [1:57 AM]

Marker Thoughts on Masters, Bills and Sabres [1:56 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Not every resident of Erie County — which already has major financial problems — is a Bills fan.

Ditto those who pay taxes in New York ... especially those downstate. It’s a tough sell at a very bad time.'
