Marker The A-Train Chugs Into Town [10:11 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Thomas said he liked his visit with Mike Mularkey and Tom Donahoe. He said he was told he would get playing time and doesn't consider himself a backup or a starter. As we've found out with the Bills trying to trade Travis Henry, there really isn't a market for starting runningbacks in the NFL at this time so Thomas is going to have to realize any situation he steps into, it'll be as a backup.'

Marker 'The A-Train' visits Bills as Henry's potential replacement [6:25 PM]

Marker Travis Henry; top free agents still available [3:08 PM]
Pro Football Weekly reports: Barring a key injury between now and the regular season, interest in trading for Henry likely will remain where it is today — nonexistent. The Bills never received an offer involving a first-day pick in the draft according to general manager Tom Donahoe, who decided not to part with Henry for less than market value. There isn’t a better backup running back in football and Donahoe knows Henry will be with the team when his paychecks start coming in September.

Galveston County Daily News reports: '“I keep praying for that one phone call, but I’m not going to stay around waiting for it to happen,” Glover said. “The most frustrating thing about the process is knowing that you can play, but having to wait for someone to give you a chance. I know that I can play in the NFL. I just want the chance to show some-one.”'

Marker Glover Agrees to Free Agent Deal [12:09 PM] reports: 'One of the most prolific receivers in Texas Tech football history has agreed to terms with the Buffalo Bills and will attend the first rookie training camp of the spring next week.

Marker Unhappy Henry Staying Put [6:16 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'As for Travis’ threat that he will sit out the entire season. It’s not going to happen. If he stays home, he does not get paid. There’s no way that he’s going to pass up his paychecks out of some misguided principle. After all he's not an NHL player.'

Marker Twins could teach us [5:41 AM]

Marker Post Draft [5:38 AM]

Marker Agent: Brian willing to play ball [5:32 AM]
Philadelphia Daily News reports: 'The Eagles also have publicly acknowledged interest in Buffalo running back Travis Henry. If they were to trade for Henry, sources have indicated the Eagles would sign him to a long-term deal, which might preclude reaching such an agreement with Westbrook. Since Henry remains untraded, it seems possible the Eagles' stated interest really has to do with gaining leverage in the Westbrook talks. "I would hope that's not the case,'' Agnone said.'

Marker Buffalo Bound! [4:31 PM]
Ellicott City View reports: 'Being chosen by the Bills came somewhat as a shock, explained King on Monday. “I had no idea they’d draft me. They said they thought I was going to be a steal. They hadn’t drafted a defensive back in two years so it says a lot,” said King.'
