Marker Taking stock of some veteran Bills after the draft [8:47 PM]

Marker After NFL Draft, ball is in Rex Ryan's court [1:54 AM]

So any way we configure it, we have four guys that will be primarily in there with obviously Corbin, the young kid Washington and then our two studs with Kyle and Marcell.'
