Marker Bills cut CB Felder; sign TE to practice squad [2:37 PM]

Marker Bills think Orton is good fit for them [1:59 AM]

Marker No C for EJ, but does it matter? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Does anybody remember, or even care, who the Bills’ captains were during the ‘90s? Of course not.

Marker Doug Marrone says Kyle Orton is what the Buffalo Bills were 'looking for' at quarterback [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"It’s better," Marrone said after practice Monday. "Kyle is much better for us. He’s an experienced veteran. He’s what we were looking for and we were fortunate to get him."'
