Buffalo Bills News - July 18, 2005

Marker Henry happy about Tennessee return [5:01 AM]
Nashville City Paper reports: '“I haven’t gotten a chance to meet Chris Brown, but as far us co-existing, I think it’ll be great. Everybody’s just got to know their role,” he said in the TV phone interview. “Whatever role the coaches give me or give him, it’s a team sport first. I’ve been in a situation a couple of different times where there’s more than one back on the team, and competition makes you better overall. I feel like if both we both understand that and the coaches let us know what both our roles are, then things should go good.”'

Marker Titans say team still negotiating with Bills' Henry [5:00 AM]
AP reports: 'However, Titans' general manager Floyd Reese said through a spokesman Sunday, "It is still an ongoing process." He said no terms have been reached for a trade or for a contract extension.'

Marker Jags may have missed big opportunity [4:59 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: How did Henry slip through the fingers of the Jaguars? If indeed, as is being reported, he has, by agreeing to contract terms with Tennessee. What happened? Was it money? Bad breath? Did Fred Taylor have a Henry voodoo doll?'

Marker McGee to Benefit from Offseason Preparation [4:58 AM] reports: '"I know I need to come in and be a more consistent corner," he said. "Already having one year under my belt, more people our counting on me more to make plays and be more of a consistent corner."'

Marker Bills Defense Aims for Improvement [4:57 AM] reports: '"As you know, we finished at number two," said linebacker Jeff Posey. "So, that's not number one. That shows there's room for improvement because we want to be the number one defense."'

Marker No Bills on the NFL's long list of bad actors [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'How refreshing that somehow, someway, the Bills have steered clear of trouble, avoided the courts, done their home city proud. Just look around the league. Upstanding behavior isn't something that should be taken for granted.'

Marker Screen passes [8:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills hit their bye week and midseason with a 5-3 record, which includes a 2-2 road mark. They won only one of three AFC East games, but the playoffs seem well within reach.'

Marker Henry closer to exit [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But a league source said Jacksonville hadn't heard from the Bills in days despite repeated attempts to contact them. Jacksonville wanted Henry so badly it might have given up a second-rounder if given a chance to make a counter offer, the source said.'

Marker Wilson trying to catch NFL dream [8:24 AM]
Arkansas Democrat Gazette reports: 'Wilson, who went undrafted after a solid career at Arkansas, already has seen that dark side of his fledgling career. So given another opportunity to stick with an NFL franchise, he understands what’s at stake when he reports to the Buffalo Bills training camp later this month. "You don’t know if or when the next opportunity is going to come," Wilson said. "You work out with the hopes of another opportunity, even though the opportunity may never come. So you just try to find your niche and find a home."'

Marker Oh, Henry! Titans reportedly deal for RB [8:03 AM]
Murfreesboro Daily News Journal reports: 'In making the deal for Henry, Tennessee not only will strengthen its own lineup but also will keep a division rival from doing the same. According to the report, Jacksonville already had agreed to terms on a contract extension with Henry, who is scheduled to make a base salary of $1.25 million in this, the last of a five-year contract he signed with the Bills. The Jaguars, however, were slower to meet Buffalo's asking price of a third-round draft pick, and it's possible that the Bills gambled that Tennessee, which overhauled its roster this offseason, will finish with a worse record than Jacksonville and, therefore, the Titans' third-round pick will be a better overall choice.'

Marker Inside slant [6:11 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Tennessee and Seattle remain in the picture for Henry but no team has done as much work on a deal than Jacksonville. The big hurdle remained signing Henry, who has one year left at $1.25 million, to a long-term extension. The Bills remain adamant about getting a third-round pick in exchange, and could be holding out for a provision where by that pick becomes a second-rounder were Henry to reach specified statistical marks.'

Marker Notes, quotes [6:09 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Bills linebacker corps is very deep, but the club is interested in how free agent rookie Liam Ezekiel performs in camp. Ezekiel, 6-0, 249, played Division I-AA ball at Northeastern but dominated his competition and is incredibly strong, doing 33 reps of 225 pounds during his workouts.'

Marker Henry deal gets Titans tough back [4:21 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: 'Henry, who could not be reached for comment yesterday, is expected to be in Nashville tomorrow to be introduced as a Titan.'

Marker Oh Henry! [4:20 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: 'Let's be clear about one thing: The arrival of Travis Henry does not make the Titans a playoff team. Far from it. With or without Henry, this team is still closer to 5-11 than it is 11-5.'

Marker Buffalo to deal Henry to Titans [4:17 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: 'Without citing a source, also reported that Buffalo would send Henry to the Titans for a third-round draft pick. The network said trade papers already have been forwarded to the NFL and that the deal is likely to be completed early next week. That was news to the Jaguars, who already had worked out a long-term contract extension with Henry and -- like the Titans -- were offering the Bills a third-round pick. The Jaguars even were willing to up that offer to a second-round choice but could not do so because the Bills did not return their phone calls Saturday.'

Marker Charity first for Shane, then preseason camp [4:15 AM]
Biloxi Sun Herald reports: 'Losman was a first-round draft pick out of Tulane in 2004, but missed all of last season with a broken leg. When Buffalo's starting QB from last year, Drew Bledsoe, signed with Dallas in the offseason, Losman ascended to the starting position. "He's looked good at times and like a rookie at times," Matthews said of Losman's work during the offseason. "If he plays well, we have a chance to have a very good year. This is the most-talented team that I have played on in my career."'

Marker Henry Dealt [4:14 AM] reports: 'The 26-year old Henry rushed for nearly four-thousand yards and 27 touchdowns in four seasons with the Bills, but lost his starting job to Willis McGahee following four games into the 2004 regular season. Since being relegated to back-up role, Henry demanded to be traded in the off-season.'

Marker Agent: Running back happy if Bills trade him to Tennessee [7:22 PM]
AP reports: 'Henry was a starter since his rookie season and was coming off consecutive 1,300-yard rushing seasons before being relegated to a backup last October. But he has only one year left on his original contract and wants a contract extension wherever he lands.'

Marker Report: Bills to Trade Henry to Titans [5:32 PM]
WGRZ-TV reports: 'Tennessee has been looking for a running back with incumbent Chris Brown's durability in question.'

Marker Titans, not Jaguars, land Henry in trade [4:38 PM] reports: '"I've been told that they have reached an agreenement," Henry's agent, Hadley Engelhard, confirmed Saturday.'

Marker Reports Henry To Titans [2:17 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Henry will reportedly go to the Titans in return for a 2006 third round draft pick. The deal is contingent upon Henry's passing a physical and will likely be made official next week.'

Marker Bills will Get Third Round Pick [1:09 PM]
ESPN reports: 'The Tennessee Titans have reached agreement in principle on a trade to acquire disgruntled Buffalo Bills tailback Travis Henry and, barring unexpected complications, the deal will be announced early next week.'

Marker Goal-line stand: Travis Henry [9:13 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Acquiring Henry would be a slap in the face of Brown, only a third-year player. We believe Henry would have every chance to win the starting job. His hard-nosed running style fits Jeff Fisher's ideal for a running back. Henry has a lot more Eddie George in him than Brown, who is explosive but struggles in short-yardage. Coach Fisher may desire a running back who is more consistent.'

Marker Fantasy spin: Travis Henry [9:13 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Questions remain on the stability of Taylor's knee. If he's not fully recovered by Opening Day, Henry would start.'

Marker Mixed signals surround talk of trade for Henry [4:46 AM]
Nashville Tennessean reports: '"Things have heated up because apparently other teams are in it and it changes things," Reese said. "You don't want to be left standing at the altar if it starts heating up and you decide you want to make a move. You don't want to miss it because you haven't been in touch."'

Marker Starks signs with Jags; Jones could be next [4:45 AM]
Florida Times Union reports: 'Meanwhile, the Jaguars remain close to acquiring Henry from the Buffalo Bills after working out most of the details for a contract extension with the veteran running back, Henry's agent said. With an extension all but done, the biggest roadblock to a deal remains compensation to the Bills. Buffalo is seeking at least a third-round pick, but the Jaguars have not yet agreed on that. Tennessee also remains in the mix for Henry but doesn't have nearly as much room under the salary cap for the contract extension Henry is demanding.'

Marker Bills QB looks to life after the NFL [4:44 AM]
Biloxi Sun Herald reports: 'That's why Matthews remains a viable force in pro football, the valuable veteran on the sideline, as the Buffalo Bills turn to second-year quarterback J.P. Losman this fall. The 35-year-old Matthews understands his role and knows it can change in an instant. "If you're not the starter, you're not going to get many reps in practice," Matthews said. "You have to be ready at the drop of a hat."'

Marker Bills’ tickets already in big demand [4:43 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Tomorrow’s demand is expected to be heavy, so the team suggests the most convenient way to buy single-game tickets is via either of the two web sites. The hook with season tickets, obviously, is not only guaranteed tickets for every game, but also a discounted price. Individual game tickets range from $35-$53 while season tickets average from $25-$43.'

July 15, 2005

Marker High Expectations for Sophomore WR Evans [1:43 PM] reports: 'Because of his stellar rookie campaign, defenses are now aware of what Evans can do. For that reason, veteran wideout Eric Moulds has told the young receiver to be prepared because opposing teams will be trying that much harder to stop him. "I told him [recently], 'The second year is your hardest year, because you proved that you can play,' " Moulds said. "Now they're going to start game-planning for him. I think that he's approaching it like, " 'I want to get better and be a 1,000-yard receiver,' and I just hope that he'll come out, play well and work hard."'

Marker Jags close to trading for Bills' Henry [12:46 PM]
AP reports: 'Del Rio said trading for Henry should not be viewed as a reflection on the team's feelings about backup running backs LaBrandon Toefield, Chris Fuamatu-Ma'afala and rookie Alvin Pearman. "We like all of our guys," Del Rio said. "We think LaBrandon Toefield can be a very good player. The thing that makes Henry attractive is he's proved he can do it."'
