Marker Buck shots [5:36 AM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: 'Drew Bledsoe is a good signing for the Cowboys, and why? Because I'm from Buffalo. We need some sort of revenge for the way you beat us in the Super Bowl. If you can protect Bledsoe, he's not a bad QB. If you can't ... well, just take your blood-pressure meds with you. GO BILLS!'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:35 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'It is believed Jennings is seeking a contract that would make him one of the highest-paid players at his position. That's a demand the Bills aren't likely to meet.'

Marker A little Bledsoe banter and Ty talk [4:46 PM]
Lawrence Eagle Tribune reports: 'Bledsoe is no fool. He's got plenty of money. Parcells and Dallas offer him a shot again at greatness -- something Gregg Williams or Mike Mularkey weren't going to deliver in Buffalo.'

Marker Bills see little risk in Losman [9:01 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We felt at times this year that the offense was a little too predictable and not varied enough," Donahoe said. "We've got some good young players on the offensive side of the ball, and we think J.P. can add to that."'

Marker Bledsoe still has 'tons' left [5:56 AM]
San Antonio Express News reports: '"I backed up (Bledsoe) for two years and I couldn't sniff the field," said Alex Van Pelt, a 1988 Churchill graduate. "He will stay in the pocket while trying to make a play and take hit after hit and get back up. He's as tough as nails."'

WGR-AM reports: 'Bills GM Tom Donahoe is at the Indianapolis combine this week. He's told numerous media outlets that the Bills won't be able to get Jonas Jennings or Pat Williams signed before free agency hits March 2nd. Donahoe has not ruled out resigning either one after free agency begins.'

Marker Cardinals shopping for a running back [9:40 AM]
East Valley Tribune reports: 'Green and Cardinals vice president of football operations Rod Graves arenít scheduled to meet with the media until Saturday.

Bills general manager Tom Donahoe said Thursday the Bills will give the Cardinals the same chance to visit with Henry as the Cards did with Shelton last week. Donahoe also said he has talked to five teams about trading for Henry. As for acquiring Shelton, "We donít have a crystal ball," he said.'

Marker All eyes, ears focus on Clarett at NFL Scouting Combine [8:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I don't wish the kid ill will, and I didn't wish him that last year with the comment that I made," Donahoe said. "But I think when you're on display, this is a job interview and you should do everything that you can to put your best foot forward. I don't think he did that last year, but I hope he will this year."'

Marker Is he super -- or not? [8:24 AM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: 'Jones' rationale goes beyond a simple judgment call on Bledsoe. It might, more than anything, be a sign of what he and the Bills think of the readiness of their young quarterbacks. The Bills were willing to take the leap of faith with J.P. Losman. The Cowboys were not willing to do the same with Drew Henson.'

Marker Bills' Henry still on Cards' list [5:01 AM]
Arizona Republic reports: 'The proposed trade is more complicated than just swapping Shelton for Henry, because Henry has just one year left on his contract. Before agreeing to the deal, the Cardinals probably would like to reach agreement on a long-term deal with Henry.'

Marker Immobility sends Bledsoe on the move [5:00 AM]
Seattle Post Intelligencer reports: 'The problem was Bledsoe's mobility, or lack of it. "We just felt that our offense needed a little more mobility," Bills coach Mike Mularkey said. "Some of the things we like to do with running the quarterback and his ability to escape. Every year the pass rush just seems to get more fierce and faster, and we just felt we needed a little more mobility. We knew what we had with Drew. We think this is a step forward."'

Marker Cardinalsí front office facing busy stretch [12:17 PM]

The Cardinals are playing coy on any of the Shelton talks, although they are known to be in discussions about dealing Shelton for Henry.'

Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills are confident the more mobile Losman will add spark to their 25th-ranked offense. But will reliability be sacrificed for versatility?'

Marker Bledsoe Buries Bitter Divorce With Buffalo [5:00 AM] reports: '"The sense that I got from talking to (Bills head coach) Mike Mularkey and (Bills president/general manager) Tom Donahoe was that the move was more that they felt like they needed to get the other kid on the field," said Bledsoe, who signed a three-year deal with Dallas on Wednesday. "I suppose I can understand that. It wasn't something that I agreed with, but I've moved on and moved on to something that I believe is better."'

February 23, 2005

Marker What's the problem? Bledsoe is a good option [9:53 PM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Bledsoe doesn't fit as a player nearing career sunset. In fact, he should be at or near career peak. Even his near peak looks better to me than the offerings of predecessors Quincy Carter, Anthony Wright, Ryan Leaf, Clint Stoerner, Chad Hutchinson and Testaverde. Who among them was better?'

Marker Bledsoe Introduced In Dallas [9:51 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'One surprising statement made by Bledsoe was he was upset Mike Mularkey didn't open up the job to a competition between him and J.P. Losman. Had that happened, Bledsoe indicated he may have stayed. He said he couldn't live with not being given a chance to hold on to his job.'

Marker Bledsoe signs [9:50 PM]
Fort Worth Star Telegram reports: '"I'm very excited to be a Dallas Cowboy. I can't wait to go home and dress my kids with the little stars and get rid of the old gear from the other team," Bledsoe said.'

Marker Dysfunction in Dallas is overblown [5:48 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The decision to sign Bledsoe, and to adopt a more prudent approach in the development of Henson (about whom some Dallas coaches have real doubts) will be viewed in a lot of different ways over the next few days. For what it's worth, here is one contrarian take on the signing: Parcells extended the career of Bledsoe by bringing him aboard. If Bledsoe plays well enough, wins, say, nine games in 2005, he'll help extend Parcells' stay as well.'

Marker Veteran's day [5:10 PM]
Dallas Morning News reports: 'Bledsoe said he was "disappointed and angry" he was released by Buffalo but "energized" to be in Dallas. "The passion is still there...any thoughts of retirement were fleeting," Bledsoe said.'

Marker Cowboys reunite Bledsoe, Parcells [2:24 PM]
AP reports: 'Parcells makes no secret of his affinity for his former players, believing he can trust them more. His collection in Dallas already included receivers Keyshawn Johnson and Terry Glenn and running back Richie Anderson. Glenn played with Bledsoe from 1996-2001 in New England.'

Marker Cowboys agree to deal with Bledsoe, sources say [2:23 PM]

Marker Bills Get Ready For NFL Combine [1:15 PM] reports: 'Each NFL team will be allowed to interview 60 players for 15 minutes apiece.'

Marker Whatís in a name? [12:59 PM]
Rochester City Newspaper reports: 'The Bills' first order of business during the new J.P. Losman era is to change the second-year quarterback's last name to "Winman." Losman is pronounced LOSS-man, and that makes me uneasy. Hopefully, his name doesn't reflect his on-field performance.'

Marker Cowboys Agree To Contract With Former Bills, Patriots QB [11:28 AM] reports: 'Since Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells arrived in Dallas back in early 2003, it has been no secret he likes to reunite with former players.'
