Marker Bills roster will change next season [5:02 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Also, almost guaranteed to be gone are former starting guard Mike Pucillo, who was often inactive down the stretch and safety Izell Reese, who suffered a similar fate once Troy Vincent returned from knee surgery and took over the free spot. Two other safeties are at risk, Pierson Prioleau, another former starter, and Coy Wire, a solid special teams player, who also couldn’t get it done as a starter. On offense, wide receiver Josh Reed has failed to impress in three seasons, nor has fellow wideourt Sam Aiken in two campaigns.'

Marker Conquest kicker gets tryout with Bills [5:01 AM]
Albany Times Union reports: 'Cirrincione's agent, Jeff Courtney, was cautiously optimistic. "I like to call it more of a workout (than a tryout)," Courtney said. "They haven't said that if Vinny kicks lights out, they're going to sign him. They're working out several kickers. They've seen some tape on Vinny, and even though it's all indoor tape, they think he has a strong leg and lot of potential because he's only 21 years old."'

Marker SU begins interviews for football coach [5:00 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Defensive coordinator Jerry Gray of the Buffalo Bills has been contacted by Syracuse but may not have an interview scheduled. His agent, Gary O'Hagan, confirmed that Syracuse had contacted Gray but declined comment Friday night when asked about an interview.'

This is a great opportunity for Vinny to have a chance to elevate his professional football playing career.”'

Marker Bills have two safeties paid in top 12 at position [8:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The cap numbers for Vincent and Milloy are pretty steady the next three years (in the $3.5 million range). Milloy is signed through 2006. So there's not going to be a great need to rework their deals. As long as Vincent plays well at safety the next three years, the Bills should be getting their money's worth.'

BuffaloBills.com reports: '"I think it could happen," said President/General Manager Tom Donahoe.

McGahee is a workhorse, capable of 30 carries a game, but there is never a rock-solid confidence he won't re-injure himself. The healthiest of ball carriers break.'

Marker Notes, quotes [4:57 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'Buffalo's jump from an NFL-low 18 takeaways to an NFL-best 39 is nothing short of amazing. It helped legitimize its No. 2 overall ranking, which is based on yardage. "When you have turnovers, no matter what the stats are, it gives you a better chance to win ball games," veteran SS Lawyer Milloy said. "That was our No. 1 goal, really, wins. It wasn't where we finished in yards, it was wins and losses. It's two years in row now with the No. 2 defense and two years out of the playoffs, so what's it matter?"'

Marker Out of control [4:55 AM]
Rochester City Newspaper reports: 'As for Bills President and General Manager Tom Donahoe, he must be hurt that the Steelers beat the Bills with reserves that the former Pittsburgh director of football operations can't even take credit for drafting or signing on Pittsburgh's behalf. Donahoe's replacement, Kevin Colbert, has generally been able to maintain a high-level of performance the last five years without the benefit of Donahoe's ingenious player moves. The Steelers finished an NFL-best 15-1 this season. I'm beginning to conclude that longtime Steelers coach Bill Cowher really molded the team, and Donahoe could just about play Yahtzee to best determine whom to acquire.'
