Marker Transcript: Mike Mularkey Q&A Session [4:04 PM] reports: 'We basically started from scratch like we did at the veteran orientation camp. We started all over again. It was another chance for the vets to hear it and feel comfortable about it. We feel like we're starting at a pretty slow pace with the rookies to get them started and comfortable too. It's an emotional time for them to be able to get in and out of the huddle and know what they're doing and be confident about what they're doing. I think by the fifth practice you hope the speed picks up, and it did.'

Marker Evans bursts into Bills' plan of attack [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's a guy that obviously has great explosiveness," said quarterback Drew Bledsoe. "He really catches the ball with his hands, which is something that I always look for.

"All quarterbacks in the NFL you look up to growing up, and he was definitely one of them. I was learning from him as much as I can. He's just basically showing me how it's done, and he does it right every time. The thing that I respect about him the most is how much the other guys respond to him when he talks. Everyone respects him, and so you have to learn how to get that respect."'

Marker Ringing success [5:20 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '”He called me as soon as it happened and said, ‘We’re going to have so much fun here.
