The Sports Xchange reports: '"Obviously, I've always said this is a performance-based business," Bills general manager Doug Whaley told reporters Saturday. "The release of Karlos Williams was strictly performance-based. He came in behind the eight ball and never caught up. And there was other guys on the roster that moved ahead of him. In light of that, we thought, 'Why hold on to him?' Why don't we give him a chance to maybe find another job out there in the league. We weren't going to hold on to him to the end, knowing he wasn't going to make the team."'

Marker Bills-Giants Arrow Up/Arrow Down [1:23 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The defense was outstanding in this one, outside of one play.

Marker Bills QBs Taylor, Manuel, see merit in helmet camera [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I think you get a great perception of how it is actually on the field,” said backup EJ Manuel. “When you watch tape from an aerial view or from behind, it’s kind of hard to see. (The helmet camera) shows you when your eyes are in the right position or when they’re not. You literally see what you saw on the practice field, so if your eyes are in the right position, you’ll see the play develop, and you can critique yourself if your eyes aren’t in the right spot."'
