Buffalo Bills News - March 14, 2005

Marker Ask Him Yourself: Tom Donahoe [5:34 PM] reports: 'At the present time there is not enough interest to make a trade and if things continue in that vein we would expect to have Travis back again next year for the final year of his contract.'

Marker Inside slant [7:20 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'The No. 2 quarterback job in Buffalo has been among the loneliest in the NFL over the past three seasons, what with the slow but durable Drew Bledsoe starting all 48 games. But after Bledsoe was released last month, and the reins were handed to J.P. Losman, a solid insurance policy suddenly became important for Buffalo again.'

Marker Strategy and personnel [7:20 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Center. The Bills have to start getting serious about upgrading their line; it's just not in the league of Pittsburgh's, Indianapolis', or New England's, the teams to beat in the AFC. Landing a veteran or good rookie would allow Trey Teague to be shifted to left tackle.'

Marker Notes, quotes [7:19 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'QB J.P. Losman, who grew up in Los Angeles, has found adjusting to a small city like Buffalo difficult, but in a good way. "It's weird being in a new city and it's been a little overwhelming my time thus far in Buffalo," he said. "The fan support has been overwhelming. It's not something I'm used to. I've never known so many people that have so much knowledge and passion about their team. "(Heading through the tunnel on game days), the energy you feel in the stadium makes you feel on top of the world, like we're gladiators or something. It's not something I'm used to and I feel very fortunate to be in this situation.''

Marker Two legislators ask Bills to forego payment [5:04 AM]
Business First of Buffalo reports: 'The two lawmakers admit their request to the Bills could open a Pandora's Box. "We fully understand that this appropriation is mandated under the lease and any failure on the part of the county to fund this appropriation would nullify the agreement," they wrote in a Feb. 28 letter to Bill Munson, Bills vice president of operation. "It is not our intention to challenge or nullify the previously signed agreement; however, as Erie County Legislators we must make every inquiry into possible expenditure reductions that will aide us in balancing our 2005 budget."'

Marker Where It Started [5:03 AM] reports: 'For Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed, and Bruce Smith the latter parts of their hall of fame careers will be an after thought, as they’ll always be remembered as Buffalo Bills.'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:02 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Starting C Trey Teague may get a look at left tackle during the spring minicamps.'

Marker Bills interview lineman and tight end [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The question for the Bills and other teams is where is Womack best suited? Seattle is interested in bringing him back to play guard. He likely would make more money at tackle. "I've played more tackle, but I'd be comfortable at guard if they put me there," Womack said. "I just try to be versatile and help the team wherever I can. "They have great chemistry here and I'd like to be part of it."'

March 10, 2005

Marker Pair of Free Agents Visit Buffalo [5:14 PM] reports: '"I sat down with coach Mularkey and coach (Jim) McNally to go over some plays and some technique and I think I could fit in pretty good here," added Womack.

Marker Bills Have More Free Agent Visitors [4:03 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'TE Marcellus Rivers has spent the past four seasons with the Giants. He has 27 catches for 227 yards and excels on special teams.'

Marker Tight End Marcellus Rivers Visits Bills [12:35 PM] reports: '2003: Played in 12 games with 5 starts. Inactive for the season’s final 4 games with a knee injury. Posted career-high totals of 17 receptions for 155 yards and recorded 12 tackles on special teams. Started against Buffalo (11/30) and had 2 receptions for 22 yards before leaving the game with a knee sprain that would sideline him for the remainder of the season.'

Marker Lineman Floyd Womack Visits Bills [12:31 PM] reports: 'Nicknamed “Pork Chop” by his mother who thought Floyd resembled Pork Chop Cash, a local pro wrestler, when Floyd was a baby.'

Marker Teague may shift to tackle [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Today the Bills are expected to entertain Seattle lineman Floyd "Pork Chop" Womack. He is a four-year veteran who has started 22 games the last three seasons, mostly at right tackle, but he also has played guard and left tackle. If the Bills don't find what they're looking for in the free agent market, Teague will become a much stronger possibility to play tackle.'

Marker Defensive linemen impress Krumrie at UW pro day [5:01 AM]
Wisconsin State Journal reports: 'Having just watched his defensive line coach put six NFL draft hopefuls through something that from now on should simply be called "The Krumrie Drill," Buffalo Bills coach Mike Mularkey found himself wondering if maybe 44-year-old Tim Krumrie should still be playing the position instead of coaching it.'

Marker Snapping point [5:00 AM]
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports: 'Former UW All-American defensive tackle Tim Krumrie, the defensive line coach of the Buffalo Bills, tested the strength and staying power of six former UW defensive linemen with a personalized drill. Krumrie and each player stood upright, face to face, and basically engaged in several minutes of hand-to-hand combat. Krumrie's goal is to measure the character and fight of each player.'

Marker Athleticism on display at UW Pro Timing Day [4:59 AM]
Wisconsin Badger Herald reports: 'The highlight of the afternoon for James and the ‘04 UW defensive line came when Buffalo Bills defensive line coach Tim Krumrie sparred with the six recruits while decked out in jeans and cowboy boots.'

Marker Former Venice Quarterback Gets Great Slot [9:50 PM]
Santa Monica Mirror reports: 'His talent was so evident that when he went to a UCLA football camp he was immediately offered a scholarship. But he didn't stay long. There were reports that Bruin coaches thought his footwork was poor, and other reports that he wanted to operate from a shotgun formation where his running ability would be maximized. In any case, Coach Bob Toledo believed a freshman should wait his turn. Cory Paus was the starter. Soon Losman decided to leave and the only schools he considered were ones who used the shotgun --- Purdue, San Diego State and Tulane.'

Marker Plenty of changes for the Bills [1:01 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The NFL’s free agency season is only a week old and already the Buffalo Bills’ roster has changed by some 15 percent.'

Marker How you play the game [1:00 PM]
Rochester City Newspaper reports: 'So I didn't expect much from Losman. Thirty-six minutes later, however, I couldn't recall a better public presentation by a Buffalo Bill. Losman's ability to convey his story and connect with the kids was unrivaled --- better than Doug Flutie, Drew Bledsoe, and Jim Kelly.'

Marker Memorabilia Collectors Club to Hold Event [12:58 PM] reports: 'The group plans to hold its first event on Saturday, April 2, 2005 in the Bills Fieldhouse at Ralph Wilson Stadium from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.'

Marker Bills Standing Pat [6:54 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'I would argue that a significant part of the Bills strategy has to do with New England’s success. The Patriots have done an unbelievable job at remaining patient during free agency. They look for the bargains and not the big names. The Pats do their shopping at the outlet malls, where the quality is just as good, but the prices are marked down considerably.'

Marker Four vie for Northern football coach [5:36 AM]
Aberdeen American News reports: 'A former NFL head coach and a current NFL assistant coach are among the four candidates who have been invited to participate in on-campus interviews for the Northern State head football coaching position.

Marker Holcomb is up for backup QB role [11:06 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Wyche's presence was a factor in Holcomb's decision to join Buffalo. "He's still the same old Sam," said Holcomb, a native of Tennessee. "He enjoys life. There's no question about that. I felt comfortable with those guys."'

Marker Holcomb ready to back QB Losman [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I've been through it a couple times," said Holcomb, who spoke with reporters at Ralph Wilson Stadium. "You have to understand what the situation is. I know what the situation is. He (Losman) is a young guy and they brought him in here to be THE guy. I have to help him as much as I can. I told the people in Cleveland and I'll say it here, it's all about winning football games."'

Marker Bills QB has a Kelly swagger [5:00 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: 'But there is one attribute the sophomore pivot already does share with Kelly. Some call it confidence, others cockiness.'

Marker DeMulling Impressed with Bills Organization [5:21 PM] reports: '"The organization is great," said DeMulling. "Everything I've seen from them [shows] they are great people. Going back to the Colts, that's all I've known so far. Their front office reminds me a lot of the Colts and the way they bring in people and who they bring in."'
