Marker Jay Skurski's Bills Mailbag: What to make of the QB coach, positions to 'worry' about [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Starting at tight end, Nick O'Leary figures to be the second option behind Charles Clay. That is definitely a position I thought the Bills could have addressed in the draft, but with only six picks, it didn't work out. The team did kick the tires on free agent Gary Barnidge recently, which shows they are looking at the possibility of adding to the position. Project Logan Thomas, who was acquired late last season, is ingriguing, but it's tough to know how much he's progressed without seeing him in practice and a preseason game, at least.'

Marker Seven things we learned from Bills OTAs this week [1:53 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“Sean is a detailed guy,” he continued. “He’s going to want everything regimented out. We’re going to be ‘bam-bam.’ We’re not going to be walking around the field.
