Marker Ezekiel passed in draft, signs with Bills [12:25 PM]
Northeastern University News reports: 'For an undrafted free agent like Ezekiel, the Bills may have been one of the better teams to be signed by. The Bills opened the 2004 season with an NFL-high four undrafted rookie free agents. Hager said the Bills are a team that has showed "a lack of concern" to try out and sign non-Division I-A players.'

Marker This Round's on Me [12:24 PM]
Northeastern University News reports: 'Another factor is Ezekiel's maturity, or lack-there-of. The 22-year-old turned an on-field scuffle with a teammate into a career marring controversy when he knocked out Husky kicker Miro Kesic in the locker room in the waning weeks of the 2004 season. Instead of sticking up for himself when asked for his side of the story he refused to call me back (surprise, surprise), even though I stated in the eight messages I left him that I thought someone that has been such a great athlete for NU deserves to have their side of the story told (again, oops). Rather than man-up and call me himself, he got someone else to call me from an anonymous number and simply say, "You've got the whole Ezekiel story wrong."'

Marker Draft picks leave Reed twisting in wind [8:51 AM]

Marker Reed ready for another big reception [7:23 AM]

Marker Spiraling up [5:54 AM]
The Sporting News reports: '"It's night and day," Moulds says of Losman's transformation. "Last spring, he didn't even know what he was supposed to do on certain plays. Now, he knows what all 11 guys are supposed to do on every play."'

Marker Bills rookie TE Everett needs surgery [5:10 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '"He's an athlete," said Bills scout Marc Ross. "He's going to be an athlete, a weapon in the passing game for us and he's going to be tough to cover."'

Marker Bills TE Everett out with torn knee ligament [3:57 PM]
AP reports: 'It generally takes players four to six months to recuperate from such an injury. That means Everett would miss most if not all of training camp, which is scheduled to open in late July. The Bills then must decide whether to keep him on their roster or put him on injured reserve, ending his season.'

Marker Everett to Have Surgery to Repair Torn ACL [3:40 PM] reports: 'Everett, the team's third-round draft pick, was hurt after making a catch during a team drill with 10 minutes left in Friday's afternoon session in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The former University of Miami standout is expected to undergo surgery later this week, possibly as early as Wednesday. Team officials and Everett's agent, Brian Overstreet, are discussing which surgeon will perform the procedure. Given the typical recovery time for such injuries, the Bills will almost certainly, at some point before the season, place Everett, the 86th prospect chosen overall in the draft, on injured reserve.

Marker Anderson's wait may end [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Obviously this defense was very good last year, and Pat was a big part of that," Anderson said. "No one can replace Pat, but if Ron and I can step in and together fill the void he created and make the amount of plays that he did, we can have the same effect on the defense. If we can't do that, it's going to leave a hole in the defense, which could affect the entire unit. So it's important for us to do the best we can to ease the loss of Pat."'

Marker Parrish, King shine among rookies [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The unquestioned star of minicamp was rookie wide receiver Roscoe Parrish, who wowed onlookers by making several highlight-reel catches.

Marker Bills Complete “Productive” Minicamp [6:32 PM] reports: '"I thought it was a success," said Losman. "I thought we had a great weekend.

Marker Bills Team Report [6:23 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Justin Bannan experiment at offensive guard didn't last very long. The team has moved him back to defensive tackle, where he has played during his first three years in the league. The team was intrigued by the possibility of moving Bannan to offensive guard after he displayed impressive quickness and athleticism on pulls and trap plays in short yardage and goal like situations last season. But the team decided a position switch wasn't necessary after drafting G Justin Geisinger in the sixth round.'

Marker Mini Camp Ends With Some Good Performances [3:55 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Mike Mularkey says he'll go over all the practices on film before he decides how to move forward on the offensive line.
