Marker Former Buffalo Bills cornerback joins radio team [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We think that it gives credibility to the position because he's played and been on the sidelines," said Scott Berchtold, the Bills vice president for communications.

Marker Sophomore Approach for Bills Coach [4:42 PM] reports: '"I'm not as fatigued as I was last year," Mularkey said. "A lot of that was because there was a lot to do with the staff, the draft, the camps … there's just a lot to do. And I was prepared for most of it. But there was still more than I had anticipated, and I could just tell physically I have a little more energy now than I did a year ago. I've also been getting home a little earlier than I have been (now that the Bills' Organized Team Activities have ended) and touching up on some little things in the office here that I can do this year that I couldn't do last year, because I was still going 90 [miles an hour]."'

Marker Bills Team Report [7:52 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Bills' relative free agent inactivity is not surprising. Because of their salary cap situation, they had no desire to make a big splash on the open market like they have the previous three seasons. They also didn't attack free agency hard because they don't think there are many holes on the roster. The Bills are always looking for players who will make them better, but they are willing to stand pat because they believe they have the personnel needed to make a strong run to the postseason.'

Marker Jags situation could be Taylor-made for Henry [9:08 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Injured star Fred Taylor is scheduled to intensify the rehabilitation work on his injured knee in the next couple of weeks.

Marker Inside slant [6:14 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Coach Mike Mularkey has scheduled a team-high of four night practices for training camp, a decision that's filled with so many positives it's hard to believe NFL teams don't practice every day under the lights in the summertime. In addition to it being a safer time to work out and beat the effects of heat, night workouts tend to be more spirited and more productive. From the marketing end, more fans can attend without having to skip work. Translation: more merchandise and concession stand sales.'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:13 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"J.P. needs to make friends with those five starting linemen as soon as he can. On the field he has to let his blockers know where he'll be. I played with two different types of quarterbacks. With Jim Kelly, you knew where he would be because he couldn't move around that much. With Doug Flutie, you never knew where he was going to be." - Bills Wall of Fame center Kent Hull, talking about what new QB J.P. Losman needs to do to be successful.'

Marker UK Bills Backers Growing at Rapid Pace [12:14 PM] reports: '"I didn't really know the sport by then, so a couple of graduate students from the University at Buffalo took time out from drinking beer to talk me through the action. I knew about Jim Kelly and Randall Cunningham - but they told be about all of the great players in Buffalo. Thurman Thomas, Andre Reed, Bruce Smith, Cornelius Bennett and more. I was hooked."'

Marker Veteran QB Matthews Understands Role [9:15 AM] reports: '"Well, one reason [I came back] is I really like this organization. I like the coaching staff. And it's probably one of the most talented teams I've ever been on," Matthews said during the Bills' final week of Organized Team Activities. "I think we have a chance to definitely get in the playoffs and make some noise. I don't know if this is going to be my last year or not, but I really feel like this team has a chance."'

Marker Bills take a gamble, and it's a Gandy [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Gambling on Gandy qualifies as one of the bolder risks of the Tom Donahoe era given the importance of the position, the presence of an untested quarterback and the impatience of a playoff-starved fan base. Gandy wowed no one during four seasons with Chicago, which released him in November convinced he'd never make a suitable transition from Notre Dame guard to pro left tackle.'

Marker All Pro Dad: Troy Vincent [2:41 PM] reports: 'BB: There's no blueprint for raising children.
TV: There's no protocol. Because every human being, every child is different. There is no script. When that kid's going to be in a good mood, bad mood, when the kid gets hungry, when he doesn't get hungry … there's no script. There's no manual. There's no agenda that you can set, and say, "Okay, this is what we're going to do today." You can plan it that way (laughs). But the reality is, when the kid wakes up, is he sick? Are Taron's allergies acting up? Do we have to make a stop here? Do we have to make a stop here? Troy's not feeling well. Desire's not feeling well today. So those things change. Circumstances come up and you have to adjust. The most important thing is patience.'
