Marker Bills Players Allocated to NFL Europe Teams [5:11 PM] reports: 'Team assignments for 21 kickers and punters, plus additional players – including German defensive lineman Christian Mohr, allocated by the Seattle Seahawks – will be confirmed during training camp, which opens in Tampa Bay early on March 2.'

Marker Bledsoe's likely out by month's end [4:18 PM]
Rochester Business Journal reports: 'The Bills want to give first-round draft choice J.P. Losman a full shot at winning the starting quarterback job, league sources told the newspaper. That appears certain to spell the end of Bledsoe’s tenure in Buffalo because there is no way he is going to be interested in being the Bills’ backup, according to two sources close to the veteran quarterback.'

Marker Palafox is back with Bills to play for NFL Europe [3:02 PM]
Sweetwater Reporter reports: 'Jonathan Palafox, a former star player at both Sweet-water High School and Angelo State University, is once again a member of the NFL's Buffalo Bills. The 26-year-old Palafox, a defensive back, was recently one of six free agents signed by the Bills and assigned to play this spring for NFL Europe. He is expected to learn the team he will play for this week.'

Marker Losman era shouldn't open with excuses [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills had better be making this switch because they're convinced it'll get them to the playoffs. This season. No excuses. No grace periods. No insinuations from the front office that Losman has to grow into the job. We've already gone through this in variation, the year Donahoe was hired, when he overhauled a team a year removed from the playoffs and entrusted it to Gregg Williams. It's taken 31/2 seasons to rebound and this is no time to retreat. Who willingly backtracks from 9-7?'

Marker Hunter harbors hope [8:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Hunter Kelly has defied the expectations. There's little doubt that the extremely high level of care he receives has helped him live a longer and fuller life. "I stand in awe that he's going to be 8," said his mother, Jill Kelly. "He wasn't supposed to be 8. He wasn't supposed to even be 2. He wasn't supposed to hold his head up by himself. He wasn't supposed to be able to blink for yes.'

Marker Bills to dump Bledsoe? [5:35 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'According to several league sources, the Bills want to hand J.P. Losman, their first-round pick in 2004, the starting QB job. Bledsoe, 33, would not be interested in the backup role, two sources close to him were reported to have said.'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:34 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'There are a few skeptics in the locker room about whether second-year QB J.P. Losman is ready to replace Drew Bledsoe as the leader of the offense. Players don't question Losman's talent. They just wonder if Losman's feel for reading defenses and decision-making can match his physical skills in his first year as a starter.'

Marker Bills Contribute to AFC Pro Bowl Win [5:33 AM] reports: 'Buffalo's four Pro Bowl representatives played a large role in AFC's 38-27 victory over the NFC on Sunday.'

Marker Bills demote Bledsoe, may soon release QB [7:34 PM]
Lawrence Eagle Tribune reports: 'According to a source in Bills management, Bledsoe was informed last week that he was out as the starting quarterback for 2005. General manager Terry Donahoe told Bledsoe that J.P. Losman, who will enter his second season in the fall, would be the No. 1 quarterback. Bledsoe was offered the opportunity to remain with the team as a backup, which would have meant forgoing a $1 million bonus in March and cutting his salary from $3.3 million to about $1.5 million. Bledsoe refused the request, saying he wanted to be a starter. He asked the Bills to cut him soon and allow him to become a free agent. The Bills said they would honor his request and probably release him in the next two weeks.'

Marker Bills ready to march on without Bledsoe [8:54 AM]

Marker If at first you don't succeed... [7:24 AM]
Allentown Morning Call reports: '''We could've packed it in after that first loss,'' Reed said. ''But we came to camp the next year with the same goal. And after every Super Bowl loss that followed, we did the same thing. It really speaks to the kind of team we were and the kind of coaching we had. We never gave up on that dream.'''

Marker Patriots' secret: Loyalty over wealth [5:14 AM]
Philadelphia Inquirer reports: 'If you want to know the secret of the New England Patriots, consider safety Lawyer Milloy and linebacker Tedy Bruschi.'

Marker Report: Bills rework contract of WR Moulds [5:13 AM]
Sportsticker reports: 'According to the report, Moulds, who signed the richest contract in team history in 2001, was scheduled to get a $5.5 million base salary and $1 million bonus next season. Under his new deal, the nine-year veteran will get the the same amount in 2005 - except $1.5 million will be in salary and $5 million will be part of the bonus. Since the bonus can be spread out over the life of the deal, Moulds' cap number is expected to drop from $8.6 million to $5.16 million in 2005.'

Marker Bills OK 3-year deal with Moulds [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The agreement is for three years and keeps Moulds under contract through 2007. His old pact was to run out in 2006, but his salary cap numbers were going to be costly in 2005 and exorbitant in 2006.'

Marker Bills, Moulds will restructure contract [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Wide receiver Eric Moulds agreed to restructure his contract — the details are expected to be finalized in the next few days — and that maneuver should create an extra $2 million in salary cap room, meaning the Bills would be approximately $12 million under the cap.'

February 11, 2005

Marker Nolan, Crennel could struggle with move to 3-4 [4:32 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The decision has essentially already been made by Bills officials, several sources told, that Losman, who missed much of his rookie season recovering from a broken leg suffered in training camp, will be the starter in 2005. In fact, it is believed that Buffalo officials have apprised Drew Bledsoe of the plan to elevate the former Tulane star to the top of the depth chart and are giving the 12-year veteran some time to consider the ramifications of the move, and to determine if he wants to return to the Bills as the backup.'

Marker Bills Pro Bowl Fun Fast Facts [4:28 PM] reports: 'Defensive end Bruce Smith was selected for the Pro Bowl 11 times with the Bills, the most by any player in team history.'

Marker Eerie Situation for Bledsoe [1:07 PM] reports: 'There are too many teams in dire need of Bledsoe’s veteran play, and unlike many people think he can turn around a team. He still has the tendency to hold onto the football too long, but when he is playing his game he is one of the top ten quarterbacks in the league. His deep ball is still there, and we all saw that in the second half of the season for the Bills, when rookie receiver Josh Reed started filling up the stat column.'

Marker No winners in Erie County budget crisis [12:48 PM]
AP reports: 'In the meantime, Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly and his son, Hunter, will be celebrating their shared Valentine's Day birthday at the Buffalo Bills Field House instead of Chestnut Ridge Park, which for five years has been the site of Hunter's Day of Hope for Children but is now closed due to the county's fiscal plight. The annual event raises research money for nervous system diseases, like the deadly Krabbe's disease that afflicts Hunter.'

Marker You have to tip your cap to Moulds [12:32 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Moulds hasn't always been happy playing for the Bills. He's complained at times about the offense and his role in it. There were times he wondered if he had a future in Buffalo. But those feelings were born out of frustration. There's no place Moulds would rather be than Buffalo. He likes living and playing here. There is something to be said for loyalty, and agreeing to a contract extension shows that Moulds is committed to the Bills.'

Marker South O'Brien to honor hometown hero [5:19 AM]
Sioux City Journal reports: 'The Bills have exclusive free rights to Stamer, so he'll find out around March 1 whether he'll be playing there again next season. If he does, Buffalo can sign him for the third-year minimum salary. That, of course, is the the probable scenario, but if the Bills don't sign him, then he'll try to catch on with another team.'

February 10, 2005

Marker Moulds Contract Extension [10:05 PM] reports: 'Moulds is signed through the 2006 season, the result of a six year extension agreed to in 2001. The new deal would allow the Bills to receive salary cap relief for 2005.'

Marker Bills Defense Looks to Shine in Hawaii [4:01 PM] reports: '"Collectively, when you have someone get selected for something like this it stands for a unit being successful," Adams said upon hearing he had been selected to his third Pro Bowl. "One person can't have any success without 10 other guys being there. If one person on the defense isn't doing their job then it's going to be a bad defense. When you have a solid defense that makes plays you have people that get recognized and it's because of everyone."'

Marker Offseason Game Plan: Bills [2:14 PM] reports: 'Once the Henry situation is resolved, all eyes will be on the expected quarterback battle between veteran Drew Bledsoe and 2004 first-round pick J.P. Losman. Bledsoe had a decent 2004, but the Bills didn't trade up for Losman just to keep him on the bench. Even if Bledsoe gets the starting nod, he'll probably be just a poor outing or two away from giving up the keys to his young understudy.'

Marker Moulds to get new deal [8:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While terms of the negotiations were not available, Moulds will likely receive just as much money this year, but his cap figure would go down significantly because the money would get spread out, for cap purposes, for more seasons.'

February 9, 2005

Marker Pochman Looking to Kick Start NFL Career [4:30 PM] reports: '"I was out of football all last year and I've worked really hard on my form and the flaws that I had before to cause me to lose a job and be out of football for a year," Pochman said from his home in Las Vegas, Nevada. "I really worked hard and I'm hoping to go over to NFL Europe and show everybody I still have what it takes to become a successful kicker in the NFL."'

Marker The real money players [12:40 PM]
Boston Herald reports: 'Lawyer Milloy's little ditty during a recent interview on WEEI had to be one of the most ridiculous lines ever uttered by an athlete.'

Marker Much more than money [6:02 AM]
CNN/SI reports: 'Lawyer Milloy looks like such a fool today.'
