Marker Bills' Dareus needs to learn about responsibility [1:38 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'But I am worried about Dareus' attitude and whether or not he takes his job seriously enough since he wasn't prepared to start work on time. It wouldn't seem to be too much to ask a player to stay in shape in the off season and come to training camp ready to go.'

Marker Marrone says Dareus will be ready to play [1:37 AM] reports: '“At the present time he hasn’t been able to pass all the tests to get him on the field, so we’re working on that, trying to get him ready to go,” said Marrone.'

Marker Crowd provides energy, players settle in [1:36 AM] reports: '“Oh it’s great,” said Watkins. “I’ve been waiting on this for a whole month now and I’ve just back home, training, trying to get in shape then to come to this scenery. There’s probably some 5,000 people here. We have great fans and that’s just motivating me to come out and have a great day, practice hard and don’t put nothing bad on tape.”'

Marker Pressure non-existent for Watkins [1:35 AM] reports: '“It means a lot,” said Watkins of the fan support. “That’s what moved me and it’s great to hear the fans calling my name out and being active while we’re practicing.”'

Marker Doug Marrone: ''Our goal is to be in the playoffs'' [1:34 AM] reports: 'That’s whats great about this game. Everyone’s heading into camp, everyone’s excited, everybody’s fresh. We’ve done some things so far as a team, with meetings and what not, we had a walk through this morning, it was great and we have to keep that same type of enthusiasm going.'

Marker What they're saying: first Bills Camp practice [1:33 AM] reports: 'Q: Can you talk about throwing to Sammy Watkins? A: It felt good. You really just want to get it in a spot for him to catch it and get some yards after the catch. That’s the biggest thing about a receiver like Sammy. I think Robert Woods, and really all those guys, are very good once they catch the ball. It’s our responsibility as quarterbacks to give them a catchable ball and let them do the rest.'

Marker Bills eager to rehab team’s reputation [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“That’s nothing new,” said Bills safety Aaron Williams. “It’s every year. Everybody just thinks we’re the same old Bills, and that’s fine with me. I completely understand that they think we’re the same old Bills that every year everybody gets hyped up for an incredible season and then people get let down with a six-win season. To me, I’m getting tired of it, as well. It’s a new attitude I’m bringing to the table.

We want to be a playoff team. We're planning to be a playoff team, and that's our goal."'

Marker Breaking down the Bills' roster [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills have to hope that a full offseason with the coaches, and learning the playbook, will offset some of the lost playing time. Manuel is confident that will be the case, but he still has to go out there and prove it. If he goes down, the Bills are not good in the backup positions. Lewis is serviceable, but he's not taking this team to the playoffs. If Tuel and Dixon have to play, Bills fans can start thinking about 2015.'
