Offseason Overview: Buffalo Bills [1:54 PM]
ESPN reports: Team president Tom Donahoe's judgment is rarely questioned, but until Willis McGahee becomes a 1,400-yard rusher, the team's first draft pick is suspect. Yes, Travis Henry's contract could be an issue down the line. And yes, the third-year runner has a fumbling problem, but using such a high pick on a risky performer while the team had other holes to address is peculiar.

A very *pow*erful runner [12:02 PM]

Simonton is the only player in the league to receive the POW distinction twice so far in 2003.

Notebook: Teams need to cover the corners [12:00 PM]
CBS reports: Winfield: He is a smaller (5-feet-9) corner, which might deter some teams, but he is a tough, physical player. The Bills love him and will do whatever it takes to keep him, which could mean using the franchise tag. They put that label on receiver Peerless Price before trading him to Atlanta. It's a safeguard for the team. But the Bills will have to decide if he's worth shutdown corner money. He certainly is if Bly can get $5 million a year.

BuffaloBills.com reports: '"As long as we are playing football, the level of play doesn't matter. The players don't grow an extra leg. The game is still the game to me, no matter the level of play."'
