Buffalo News reports: '“I grew up around horses my whole life,” Hamilton said. “It’s just something that’s been with me since I was young. I’m from the country. I’ve lived in the country. I’ve never really lived in town. Having horses and going to rodeos every weekend was a big responsibility.'

Marker Do the Bills have the worst QB situation in the NFL? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And yet... the age-old problem here in Western New York lingers. Quarterback. Veteran Matt Cassel, 2013 first-rounder E.J. Manuel and Tyrod Taylor will all compete for the No. 1 job at St. John Fisher College this summer. This off-season, the Bills decided not to overspend, overdraft or pull off a costly trade for someone else. Time will tell if Rex Ryan can win the old fashioned way — with defense and a running game.'

Marker Bills defense long on talent, short on age [1:55 AM]

Marker Bills’ Steward draws mental strength from rehab ordeal [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s one of those things you don’t want to have to deal with,” said Steward, selected by the Bills in the sixth round of the NFL Draft in May. “The mental is probably just as bad – if not worse – as the physical part of it because you need to stay positive and make sure you’re staying on top of everything."'

Marker Bills attend OT Battle's pro day workout [1:56 AM]

The team with the highest bid is awarded that player but forfeits next year’s draft pick in that round.

Marker Off-field bond helps fuel Bills D-Line on-field production [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I think it’s very rare,” Mario Williams said after a one of the team’s minicamp practices last month. “Mostly I’ve seen coaching staff turnover. I’ve had a different coach I think every year just about. But to be able to play in general with guys, especially in the same group, in the same room, I think it’s very important.”'

Marker Bills Positional Briefs: Running Back [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Anthony Dixon - This is where the position starts to go completely up in the air. Dixon, as beloved as he is by fans, is in serious trouble to make the roster. Unless an injury happens to one of the top three, Dixon will be battling Bryce Brown for one spot -- if they even keep four at the position. Dixon is the better special teams player between him and Brown, but are those requirements filled because of the addition of Karlos Williams? He'll likely have to prove himself as a better runner than Brown.'

Marker Hopes are downfield for Bills receiver Holley [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“That’s what I did best,” said Holley, an Anchorage, Alaska native. “My vertical’s through the roof. I like to get the ball at its highest point. I don’t let the ball come down and wait. I make the play on the ball. … I might not be the fastest in the room or on the field but I get down the field and make big plays. I’m a big target.”'

Marker Do the Buffalo Bills have the worst quarterback situation in the NFL? [1:58 AM]

Marker The straight and narrow [1:35 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Perseverance,” Miller said. “The little things that he showed through his leadership and him becoming a better person.

Marker Sizing up AFC East’s top 10 offseason moves [1:33 AM]
Boston Globe reports: 'When Doug Marrone decided to opt out of his contract and the Jets let go of Ryan, Buffalo pounced on the chance to get Ryan. The ever-quotable coach has injected tremendous enthusiasm into the fan base, wrapping his pickup truck in the Bills’ logo and talking up the team’s chances at every turn. A team with an already strong defense added offensive weapons, though the question of who will play quarterback could determine the Bills’ fate.'

Marker 5 offensive playmakers to watch at camp [1:32 AM] reports: '“We spend a lot of time equally on a lot of things,” said Clay of his assignments. “Running routes, catching as receivers out of the backfield.

Marker It may take time for offense to develop some chemistry [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The linemen not only have to get used to working together, which impacts all five, but they also have to develop a feel for the timing of how the running backs hit the hole and how to work in concert with both the fullback and running back, as well as the tendencies of the quarterback when it comes to how long he hangs in the pocket and the way he’s inclined to move.'

Marker Pegula has kept Buffalo fans excited [1:58 AM]

Marker McKelvin confident he can pick up where he left off before injury [1:58 AM]
WGR-AM reports: ''“It is not my first rodeo of me breaking my ankle. This is my third time. I did it back in college and then my second year in the league. It is just a routine for me getting back stronger. My speed is not going to go anywhere. I am naturally fast. I have a God-given talent to run fast, so I will be able to come back to my ability.”'
