Marker Haslett Admits To Steroid Use. Hull Denies He Was Involved [3:13 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Haslett said they introduced a former Bill and USFL lineman to "the pill" and he went from 270 pounds to 305. Haslett called him probably one of the all time greatest players in Bills history. He did not name the player. Kent Hull told Leo Roth of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle that the accusation is false and he may have to give Haslett a call. Hull says he's never weighed 300 pounds in his life and he resents the implication by Haslett.'

Marker Bledsoe perturbed by perception that 'he's done' [2:32 PM]
ESPN reports: '"So did I get a raw deal? To a certain extent. There was a shift in philosophy that didn't include helping out the quarterback. It does bother me that a lot of the blame for our lack of success was placed right on my shoulders. But I'm never going to be one of those guys who say that I'm being treated unfairly when I'm playing a game for a living. It didn't work out and am I unhappy about that? Yeah. But I'll never say they did me wrong."'

Marker Report: Haslett tried steroids as a player [2:30 PM]
The Sports Network reports: '"Everybody wanted an advantage, so you tried it. I tried it. Everybody tried it," Haslett said.'

AP reports: 'Haslett played in Buffalo from 1979 to 1985, and finished his career in 1987 with the New York Jets. He said he used steroids for one season early in his career. ''It started, really, in Pittsburgh. They got an advantage on a lot of football teams. They were so much stronger (in the) '70s, late '70s, early '80s,'' Haslett said. ''They're the ones who kind of started it.'''

Marker Bills' Mularkey expects to Henry to report for camp [2:17 PM]
AP reports: '''I know he's frustrated,'' Mularkey told reporters during the NFL owners meetings in Hawaii this week. ''We have done everything we can to really honor his request for a trade. ...

Marker Reports: Saints coach Haslett admits to steroid use [1:41 PM]
Sportsticker reports: '"I didn't think it (steroids) was very good for you," Haslett told the Los Angeles Times. "I was hyper all the time. Got bloated, a fat face. But if you didn't (take steroids), you weren't as strong as everybody else, you weren't as fast as everybody else."'

Marker Ex-Bills star denies taking steroids [1:40 PM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I have never weighed 300 pounds in my freaking life, even now when I’m retired,’’ Hull said.'

Marker Owners vote yes for safety [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Cardinals are offering left tackle L.J. Shelton, but the Bills apparently don't feel they are getting a fair exchange with the player-for-player deal. Green is intrigued by Henry's skills. "I think he's tough as hell," Green said. "He's got exceptional balance, which allows a guy to get a lot of yardage. He's smart but powerful, compact, very difficult to tackle. I think he's a good player."'

Marker Vikings spend offseason collecting ex-Bills [8:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We were really pleased that they wanted to come play for us," Tice said. "Of course, Ted was instrumental in a lot of that because these guys want to come back and play for Ted again."'

Marker Something is better than nothing for Henry [8:50 AM]

Marker Haslett admits to using steroids [5:28 AM]
Pittsburgh Post Gazette reports: 'He described the introduction of steroids by the Bills to one of their new teammates in the 1980s. "I played with a guy who came into the league, he came out of the USFL," Haslett said. "He was 270, and he would never have made our team if he didn't get up to 300. The linemen got him together, got him a little supplemental pill for the week and he got up to about 305 and made our team. And he's probably one of the all-time great players in Bills history. He was a great player." While his description fits former Bills center Kent Hull, Haslett would not name him. Hull joined the Bills from the USFL New Jersey Generals in 1986 and played 11 seasons in Buffalo.'

Marker Lee Evans Player Diary: A Whirlwind Day [5:01 PM] reports: 'It's really hard to put into words what it feels like waiting to be drafted, but I guess it's similar to when you're a little kid waiting for Christmas to come. Sooner or later you know it's going to come, and you're just kind of waiting and waiting. It's that type of feeling.'

Marker Bills RB Henry prepared to sit out until trade demand met [9:26 PM]
AP reports: '``I'm definitely not going back to Buffalo if that's what you want to hear,'' the running back told The Associated Press on Monday from his home in Orlando, Fla. ``No minicamps.

Marker Bills Team Report [7:30 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'Re-signing veteran TE Ryan Neufeld was important because he gives the team much-needed stability at the position. The top two tight ends, Mark Campbell and Tim Euhus, are recovering from reconstructive knee surgeries and may not be healthy until the start of training camp at the earliest. While the team will likely add another tight end through free agency or the draft, Neufeld's experience and knowledge of the offense are assets it could not do without.'

Marker Bills' draft plans could center on the offensive line [8:59 AM]

Marker Strategy and personnel [5:44 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills have to start getting serious about upgrading their line; it's just not in the league of Pittsburgh's, Indianapolis', or New England's, the teams to beat in the AFC. Landing a veteran or good rookie would allow Trey Teague to be shifted to left tackle.'
