Marker $13 million dollars in dead cap money for the 2002 season [10:33 AM]
ESN reports: Rob Johnson ($5,075,250) alone counts for 39% of the team’s dead cap money. Combine that money with Henry Jones ($2.9 million), John Holecek ($1.6 million), Phil Hansen ($1.6 million) and Ken Irvin ($1.4 million) and you have 99% of the Bills dead dollars tied up among five players. Bills GM Donahoe is doing his best to avoid future dead cap money, that’s why it’ll be interesting to see what happens after June 1. A lot of dead money equals salary cap jail, something Donahoe has said will not happen again during his tenure with the team.

Marker Buffalo Bills Playoff History [9:25 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: The Buffalo Bills have had a long and storied playoff history, dating back to their 1964 and 1965 AFL Championships, as well as their four consecutive AFC Championships in the early 1990s. Here's a complete list along with game summaries.

Marker Tillman marches to his own drummer [5:18 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'The Bills would be crazy to let Riemersma go, especially after a career-best 53 catches last year. Keep this in mind: When Drew Bledsoe was at his best with New England, he had tight end Ben Coates to throw to. He needs a tight end with hands, and Dave Moore isn't that guy.'

Marker Veteran Fina trying to remain with Bills [5:16 AM]
D and C reports: 'With a willingness to take a "substantial" pay cut, according to his agent, and to assume a backup role if that's what the coaching staff wants, the veteran offensive tackle is not making it easy for the Buffalo Bills to cut him on Saturday.'

Marker Pat Kirwan - SI favorite off season moves [5:30 PM]
CNN/SI reports: QB Drew Bledsoe -- He gives the Bills instant credibility and puts Buffalo in a position to be this year's Patriots story. For the first time in many years Drew has to compete to save his career and most insiders I spoke with feel he's up to the challenge. He could easily have the kind of effect that Rich Gannon had on the Raiders when he moved west to Oakland back in 1999, and Bills offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride is at his best when coaching smart QBs like Bledsoe.

Marker 5th Down: Running The Show [5:13 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: If you run down the list of superstars from those Super Bowl teams, you'll find a group of players whose personalities were as memorable as their football ability.

Marker NFLE Europe players on the rise - Curtis Alexander [4:00 PM]
The Sporting News reports: Alexander has accomplished nearly as much as Jamal Robertson on the ground, but he has more total yards from scrimmage because he has been a bigger factor in the passing game. Alexander was a fourth-round draft pick of the Broncos in 1998, but failed to make it through his first training camp. He has generated enough interest that if the Bills waive him, another team with less depth will bring him in for a tryout.

Marker Inside Dish: Fina drawing interest [3:56 PM]
The Sporting News reports: In several situations, impending cap casualties already have been contacted and deals are in the works with potential suitors. For example, OT John Fina's agent already has received several calls from teams considering the "former" Bill.

Marker Fantasy Football, NFL Head Coach style [12:41 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: Head coaches were asked: Pick one player to build an expansion team around?
Faulk, a defensive coordinator's worst nightmare, garnered just two votes. One came from Bills coach Gregg Williams, a former defensive coordinator who knows a thing or two about trying to contain offensive firepower. "He presents too many match-up problems," said Williams. "And he causes these problems against every defense run in the league."

Marker Bledsoe costing Patriots $6.666 Million in cap space [12:32 AM]
Boston Globe reports: The final cap hits for Bledsoe and Terry Glenn are now on the books. According to the latest NFL documents obtained by the Globe, the Bledsoe cap hit for the Patriots was $6.666 million, and on Glenn it was $945,000. Bledsoe's number includes the $6 million in pro-rated bonus from his newest contract, plus $666,000 pro-rated from his old contract. As for Glenn, it's unclear why there was such a large hit. There was a "secret" settlement between the Patriots and Glenn and it has been kept under wraps by the team and the league. Bledsoe's cap hit will be the second-highest on the roster this season.

Marker Some choose country over football [8:42 PM]
ESPN reports: 'At a time when it was acceptable for professional athletes to defer military service, Kalsu felt obligated to honor the ROTC pledge that had been as much a part of his life at the University of Oklahoma as had his All-American role on the football team. And so Kalsu left his pregnant wife and young daughter to fulfill what he deemed to be a responsibility he could not ignore.'

Marker New depth of talent turns Bills minicamp into scramble for jobs [9:24 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A year ago, the mystery was whether the team had enough viable players to fill out a complete lineup. Now it's a question of who pushes whom, or how much playing time some very good talents will get.'

Marker AFC East race should be thrilling, as usual [6:37 PM]
Sporting News - Voice of the Fan reports: I already thought the Bills would be much better this year after the way they finished up, giving the Dolphins and Patriots fits while also costing the Jets the division. They have a very good receiving corps and a new QB (Drew Bledsoe) who will help turn a mediocre offense into a good one, but the key will be the ground game. Bledsoe needs Travis Henry and Shawn Bryson to take some pressure off him. On defense, the Bills have some good, young talent and should improve in the second year of a new system. Overall, they will be much more competitive but not good enough to secure a wild-card berth.'

Marker Search for cover corners becoming endless [6:36 PM]
CBS Sportsline.com reports: If teams have two good corners as their starters, it does give them a huge edge. Take the Buffalo Bills. They start Nate Clements and Antoine Winfield, two former first-round picks who are on their way to becoming one of the league's best tandems.

Marker Video footage of Training Camp - Bledsoe to Moulds [5:25 PM]
WKBW reports: For Bills WR Eric Moulds, this is his 7th season in the NFL. And Drew Bledsoe is the 8th QB he's worked with. The two have been working out their timing during the May "minicamp" at One Bills Drive. View the video for the full story as Bledsoe talks about learning to read body language.

Marker Donahoe/Williams Era Taking Shape [5:11 PM]
ESN reports: The Buffalo Bills starting lineup will look much different than the 24 guys (including the kicker and punter) than started on opening last season. As of the recent mini-camp 14, or possibly 15, of the 24 positions will change from last year's opening day starters. Furthermore, only eight of those positions will be manned by players from the pre-Gregg Williams/Tom Donahoe era.

Marker Confusion about under tackles [5:04 PM]
Shout! reports: Lary Bump tries to untangle the confusion about the under tackle position as used by the Bills. "The nose tackle is shaded on the center's outside shoulder on the weak side. The under tackle is usually to the strong side, on the guard's outside shoulder."
