Marker New Bills RB comfortable with backup role [10:27 PM]

Marker TE's Campbell and Euhus Progressing [9:55 PM] reports: '"(The first minicamp) was more basic," said Losman. "We've thrown in a lot this time. We put a lot of new things in (to the offense) and it's making it a little bit difficult but then again, you're finding out what you are good at and what you aren't. It was a lot thrown at us but it was also fun at the same time."'

Marker Campbell And Euhus Are Improving [5:25 PM]

Nashville Tennessean reports: 'With Titans General Manager Floyd Reese currently out of town, talks with the Bills will probably be on hold for a bit. Henry has only has one year remaining on his current contract with the Bills, so the Titans would likely have to extend his deal as part of a trade.'

Marker If Bills' owner Wilson is patient, he might get his wish [5:23 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'But Wilson wonders how the Bills remain competitive if, under a future labor accord, big-revenue owners such as Dallas' Jerry Jones or Washington's Daniel Snyder not share portions of locally generated money. After hearing what Tagliabue had to stay after this week's annual spring meetings he may not have to worry.'

Marker Bills Sign Offensive Lineman Greg Jerman [9:34 PM]

Marker Bills Sign Lineman Greg Jerman [4:25 PM] reports: 'Jerman spent the last three seasons with the Dolphins and saw action mainly at guard, playing in a total of 11 games and starting one. Signed as an undrafted free agent in 2002, Jerman was a four-year letterman at Baylor where he started 38 games.'

Marker Henry stuck [5:34 AM] reports: 'The Buffalo organization also isn’t stupid. They know that if they let Henry sit, he is going to waltz out of Buffalo like he never had been there. So they might as well get what they can for him now, before they let him walk away empty handed. A third round draft pick may be the best offer they can get, but who knows who that pick could end up meaning to the Bills franchise.'

Marker Familiar faces in sports world enliven scene [5:33 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Bush also recognized another, more famous, western New York athlete: former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly.

"It was definitely a treat," said Kelly, explaining later that he has no immediate plan to run for office, despite speculation to the contrary.'

Marker A Rheem Dream [11:03 AM] reports: 'Rheem was a semifinalist for the Lou Groza Award (nation's top kicker) in 2004 and is considered very accurate and consistent with good mechanics. League scouts said he just lacked superior leg strength and couldn't get top-notch distance or hang time on kickoffs. But Rheem was 13-of-15 on field goals as a senior including 2-for-2 from 50-yards plus.'

Marker Jets' stadium could hit Bills in the wallet [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'What does this mean for the Bills? As you may have read two weeks ago, owner Ralph Wilson is concerned about where the NFL is headed. The collective bargaining agreement with the players' association ends after the 2007 season. The players are seeking a share of heretofore untapped revenues, revenues teams aren't mandated to share among themselves. Franchises at the high end of the scale are opposed to divvying up the individual pots. That means that in the next CBA the Bills likely would take a heavier hit than the teams making more money. And that makes it less attractive for the Bills to remain in Buffalo when it comes time to settle Wilson's estate.'

Marker Bills WR Parrish on his first pro football trading card [7:23 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The speedster out of Miami was among three dozen of the NFL's top rookies who just yesterday put on their pro-uniforms to pose for the Donruss Card Company out in Los Angeles.'

Marker Wilson won't surrender to NFL's power markets [5:02 AM]
Sports Business Journal reports: '"Now the league is riding a crest of popularity, and I am afraid -- and I said that to the owners down in Atlanta (at a meeting on April 19) -- that some of the new owners who have come in the last 10 or 15 years don't know what some of the clubs went through 25, 30, 45 years ago," Wilson said during an interview in his sparse office adjacent to Ralph Wilson Stadium.'

Marker Talkin' Bills, post Wilson [5:01 AM]
Business First of Buffalo reports: 'Wilson wants to keep the team in Buffalo, but lawyers have told him that there is no way he can legally ensure that. Knowing that, it is time for a group of Buffalo-minded investors to approach the Wilson family about securing the rights of first refusal to purchase the franchise. If such an arrangement already exists in a shroud of secrecy, fine. But assuming that it doesn't, it's time for a well-intentioned, well-financed group to get to work.'

May 22, 2005

Marker Bills Team Report [7:45 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Bills like what they've seen so far from rookie C Duke Preston, their fourth-round draft pick. Preston has good size (6-5, 311), strength and toughness to compete with defensive tackles at the point of attack. He has the intelligence to make the line calls and is technically sound as a blocker who plays with leverage and works hard to finish blocks.'

Marker Tom Roth Promoted to Bills Scout [4:18 PM] reports: 'Cleveland area-native Tom Roth has been named the Buffalo Bills BLESTO scout after spending the past two seasons as the team’s College Scouting Administrator. Roth’s scouting territory will include colleges in North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and the Washington D.C. area.'

Marker Pats have a familiar ring [9:03 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Is Losman ready to lead the offense? How much better will RB Willis McGahee and WR Lee Evans be in their second year as starters? Is Gandy the answer at left tackle? Will Henry's status become a distraction? Can Campbell and Euhus return to preinjury form? Can Anderson and Edwards fill Williams' shoes?'

Marker Philosophical differences over revenue could cause labor rift [5:16 AM]

Marker ESPN reveals Dobler's secret tragedy [2:28 PM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Dobler, who has always been a colorful character, illustrated he could deliver and take a good joke about his image when he was roasted for the benefit of the local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 1988. But as an ESPN story will illustrate at 10:30 a.m. Sunday, the life of Dobler and his family has taken a very serious turn.'

Marker Inside slant [6:45 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Your team centers around your leaders and we have some great leaders on this team," Gray said on NFL Sirius Radio. "Hopefully, J.P. steps into that role. J.P. is the leader but we have to rally around J.P. and knowing teams are going to throw a lot of stuff at him. It's up to the defense and the special teams to take the heat off ... make him not say, 'I've got to win this game.'"'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:44 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"The league was built on sharing revenues but these big market clubs just don't want to give up any more. ... The old-time owners, they've been through the strikes. They've seen the players outside screaming obscenities to them, the cops with the guns. They've seen the hairdressers (strike players) playing out here. The old-timers, there's not enough of us old guys left and the new guys, it's hard to convince them." -- Bills owner Ralph Wilson talking about a growing rift among owners regarding the sharing of more revenues.'
