Marker Do they fit Rex & Roman? A look at Bills' 2015 UFAs [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'To relate it to normal life, C.J. Spiller is thought of by many as the classic ‘what if’ significant other from your past. Signs of potential were seen throughout the relationship between the Bills and Spiller, which led some to think he could have a greater impact than what he had. The reality of the matter is this: Spiller is exactly what we’ve come to know him as. For as many years as he’s been in the league, 2012 is the anomaly. He hasn’t proven to be an every down back in his time in the NFL, but likely wants to get paid like one.'

We are going to earn that loyalty and that trust, and one thing you’re going to see, come September, this team will be ready, period. That’s going to be my guarantee.'

Marker What’s ‘home of the Bills’ worth to Orchard Park? [7:18 AM]

A year later, their ground game was third in the NFL and they lost to Seattle for the conference title. Last season, despite the turmoil that led to coach Jim Harbaugh leaving the 49ers for the University of Michigan, Roman still managed to guide the league’s fourth-best rushing attack.'

And there's no question Ryan will want to make a strong case to bring in free agent Mark Sanchez, a player he had with the Jets and liked so much he got a tattoo of his wife wearing a Sanchez jersey.'
