Marker Woolfolk turns the corner [4:31 AM]
Nashville City Paper reports: 'As for veteran help, general manager Floyd Reese continued to downplay the talk of acquiring Travis Henry from Buffalo, saying no new talks have been held. Henry is entering the last year of his contract and is scheduled to make $1.25 million. Reese did acknowledge that if the Titans were to get serious in that regard, he would try to rework the contract. “I think if we traded for him, we’d rework the deal,” Reese said. “I think right now, their inclination is to hold onto him rather than trade him. They like him. It’s not like they want to get rid of him and he’s a bad character or any of that stuff, and they understand that if I can’t get such and such in compensation, there’s no reason to trade him.”'

Marker New field a boost for Bills [5:01 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'In the past, the Bills were reluctant to practice on the carpet-style artificial turf inside Growney due to the wear such surfaces cause on knees and joints. But synthetic athletic fields such as the one Fisher is getting are kinder on athletes' bodies — crushed rubber pellets surround plastic grass blades, acting as millions of tiny shock absorbers. "The players really like it," Mularkey said. "If we were on it more (in camp), I don't see it as a problem at all. And any time you can create a game-type atmosphere, that gets the adrenaline flowing."'

Marker Buffalo's search for spicy new wing leads to Losman [2:10 PM]
USA Today reports: '"When the Bills drafted J.P., everybody was saying, J.P.'s a cocky guy," CBS analyst and former Bills special teams legend Steve Tasker says. "I laughed. When Jim Kelly came to Buffalo he led the league in cocky. He came to Buffalo in 1986, kicked ass and took names. Jim was a blue-collar, beer-drinking, hard-living guy with a swagger. The reason people in Buffalo loved him was that he was willing to point the finger at himself. He was a great leader. Jimmy was the only quarterback from the Class of '83 who after he threw an interception, he'd go after the guy. He broke a guy's leg tackling him. That's what people in Buffalo expect from their quarterback. They expect passion."'
