Marker Shaping up as an area of strength [5:39 AM]
Chicago Sun Times reports: 'During the Buffalo Bills' dominance of the AFC in the 1990s, coach Marv Levy referred to one man as his secret weapon. Not quarterback Jim Kelly, running back Thurman Thomas or defensive end Bruce Smith, stars of the team, but a more obscure figure working behind the scenes...'

Marker Inside the Herd: HOF Billy Shaw [9:16 PM] reports: 'Have you kept in touch with any of your old teammates? Do you still feel like you are part of the Bills team? Thanks for the memories, the 1960 Bills are a big part of my youthful memories.
BS: Absolutely, that was a close, close group. When we come back every year in September for the reunion, it's amazing how many of those guys come back. Stu Barber, Paul Maguire, Dick Hudson, Mike Stratton, Howard Kindig, Gene Sykes, all live in the south. I see them at golf tournaments around a whole lot more often than I see some of the other guys, but a great number of those guys still live in Buffalo. We certainly see them. It was a very close knit group of folks who have stayed in contact over the years.'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:18 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The team hopes the offensive line stays intact because it wants Trey Teague to remain at center. A former tackle, Teague has been solid in his three years as the anchor of the offensive line. He has exceptional quickness and agility to make blocks on the second level. He's a highly intelligent player who is adept at making the right line calls and has a good understanding of blocking angles. He is not a dominant blocker and has trouble with big, powerful defensive tackles. But his toughness, athletic ability and work ethic allow him to overcome any shortcomings.'

Marker Wyche finds an eager pupil in Losman [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He cringes at the comments about us not winning too many games because he's new," Wyche said. "It gets under his skin. And he doesn't want to be known as a scrambler. He wants to be a passer who can scramble."'

Marker Could '64 Bills have won 'Super Bowl' against Browns? [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"This is all hearsay and all talk," said Bills Hall-of-Fame guard Billy Shaw. "I've said it many times before of the AFL champions prior to the Super Bowl, that was probably the team that could have really played with NFL champions. I'll say this: We matched up really good with them. I'd have loved to have had that opportunity."'

Marker NFL revenue distribution key topic these days [8:41 AM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Wilson insists he isn't asking for any handouts to survive. His Bills do play in an 80,000-seat stadium. But he does expect his fellow owners to accept the reality that a team in Dallas has greater opportunities and potential for revenue than a team in Buffalo. "I don't expect Jerry Jones to take money out of his pocket and say, 'Here, Wilson, take this,' " Wilson said. "But I do expect him to take a dollar out and say, 'Here, come play me next week, will you?' "'

Marker Lee glad for run at No. 2 [9:22 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think I can mix it up a little bit," he said. "I can run tough inside and run outside. This will really be the first year that I'm being given the opportunity to show what I can do, and I'm excited about that."'

Marker Injured tight ends eye training camp [9:21 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"They're right where we anticipated them, I think maybe a little ahead," Mularkey said. "But that's something you don't want to test it too much. You don't want them to get any setbacks. But I feel like they're on schedule."'

Marker Inside slant [6:50 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Losman said it's important he focus on throwing to the healthy targets and not worry about who isn't in the lineup. "We can't worry about injuries and who we're throwing to and who we're not," he said. "Trafford's doing a great job and Ryan Neufeld, those are the guys I'm throwing to a lot now."'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:48 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'A half-dozen veterans skipped at least the final day of Organized Team Activity workouts at Ralph Wilson Stadium. That still meant some 80 players did take part, including QB J.P. Losman who wouldn't dream of skipping. He's been handed the starting job and the work he's putting in during May should make things run smoother come July. "Anytime you get a chance to come out here with the receivers, especially organized and running plays that we are going to run during the year, it's very critical," Losman said. "I'm very fortunate for the guys here that we're getting our timing down now."'

Marker Bledsoe finding Parcells treats vets differently [8:55 PM]
AP reports: 'Buffalo, which came one win short of the playoffs last season with Bledsoe, handed over the starting job to youngster J.P. Losman without an on-field competition. Bledsoe is driven to prove the Bills made the wrong decision, and also reward the faith Parcells has in him.'

Marker Maguire a Moorman Admirer [3:03 PM] reports: '"One record I'm not proud of is having the most punts in Bills history," said Maguire. "That will tell you what kind of crappy teams I played on."'

Marker Giants not in sharing mood [10:24 AM]
Bergen Record reports: 'Buffalo owner Ralph Wilson has been leading the charge for the sharing of those revenues. Wilson cites potential competitive imbalance, even though the league has a salary cap to level the playing field when it comes to signing players. Mara indicated some teams spend as much as 70 percent of their revenues on player costs, while other teams spend as little as 30 percent. That can impact on other team expenditures such as the coaching staff and building facilities, which could entice free agents to join the franchise.'

Marker Cameo roles challenge 'backer backups [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's a big challenge being a backup because as competitors we want to be on the field," said Haggan, Fletcher's understudy at middle linebacker. "But to get on the field we have to go through London Fletcher or Jeff Posey and Takeo Spikes. We know that we can play. We just have to be patient because our time will come."'

Marker Reich takes his game to higher level [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I always tell people that in football I learned a lot of things," Reich said during a celebration-related conference call Thursday. "Two key things were preparation and leadership. And essentially what we do as a ministry is prepare leaders for the church."'

Marker Titans owner Adams confirms interest in Henry [5:24 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I don't know exactly how deep it goes with Mr. Adams but I don't know if it's a matter of pulling the trigger, it's just are we hitting the right target?" coach Mike Mularkey said when asked about the Titans' overtures for Henry. "If it's the right target, the trigger will be pulled but obviously it hasn't yet."'

Marker New Bills RB comfortable with backup role [10:27 PM]

Marker TE's Campbell and Euhus Progressing [9:55 PM] reports: '"(The first minicamp) was more basic," said Losman. "We've thrown in a lot this time. We put a lot of new things in (to the offense) and it's making it a little bit difficult but then again, you're finding out what you are good at and what you aren't. It was a lot thrown at us but it was also fun at the same time."'

Marker Campbell And Euhus Are Improving [5:25 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The three rehabbing from surgery all worked out with the trainers. They are Mark Campbell, Tim Euhus and Kevin Thomas. Mularkey says Euhus and Campbell are maybe a little ahead of schedule and the plan is to have them full speed by training camp.'

Marker Oh, Henry: Adams says Titans want ex-Vol [5:32 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: 'With Titans General Manager Floyd Reese currently out of town, talks with the Bills will probably be on hold for a bit. Henry has only has one year remaining on his current contract with the Bills, so the Titans would likely have to extend his deal as part of a trade.'

Marker If Bills' owner Wilson is patient, he might get his wish [5:23 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'But Wilson wonders how the Bills remain competitive if, under a future labor accord, big-revenue owners such as Dallas' Jerry Jones or Washington's Daniel Snyder not share portions of locally generated money. After hearing what Tagliabue had to stay after this week's annual spring meetings he may not have to worry.'

Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2002, Jerman was a four-year letterman at Baylor where he started 38 games.'

Marker Henry stuck [5:34 AM] reports: 'The Buffalo organization also isn’t stupid. They know that if they let Henry sit, he is going to waltz out of Buffalo like he never had been there. So they might as well get what they can for him now, before they let him walk away empty handed. A third round draft pick may be the best offer they can get, but who knows who that pick could end up meaning to the Bills franchise.'

Marker Familiar faces in sports world enliven scene [5:33 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bush also recognized another, more famous, western New York athlete: former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly. Kelly, who is becoming a regular at big Republican events in New York, attended the speech because he said he wanted his 10-year-old daughter, Erin, to meet the president. "It was definitely a treat," said Kelly, explaining later that he has no immediate plan to run for office, despite speculation to the contrary.'
