Marker Bills Complete “Productive” Minicamp [6:32 PM] reports: '"I thought it was a success," said Losman. "I thought we had a great weekend.

Marker Bills Team Report [6:23 PM]
The Sporting News reports: 'The Justin Bannan experiment at offensive guard didn't last very long. The team has moved him back to defensive tackle, where he has played during his first three years in the league. The team was intrigued by the possibility of moving Bannan to offensive guard after he displayed impressive quickness and athleticism on pulls and trap plays in short yardage and goal like situations last season. But the team decided a position switch wasn't necessary after drafting G Justin Geisinger in the sixth round.'

Marker Mini Camp Ends With Some Good Performances [3:55 PM]

His gut is almost gone and Mularkey says his RT spent much of the off season working with strength and conditioning coach Brad Roll.'

Buffalo News reports: '"Every year is a challenge, especially in this age of free agency when it's hard to keep guys together for more than a few years," Bills offensive line coach Jim McNally said Saturday during the Bills' three-day minicamp. "We've got a good group here. We just have to find the right guy and see if he can get the job done."'

Marker No diagnosis yet on Everett injury [8:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He's got some swelling in it," Mularkey said after the Saturday afternoon session. "We're going to wait for that to go down, which I'm hoping is by the early part of the week, and re-evaluate it and see what the extent of the injury is."'

Marker Bills' second-round pick getting rave reviews [8:54 AM]

Rochester D&C reports: '"It reminded me a little of when I was with New England and I would have conversations with a young guy named Tom Brady," Milloy was saying after Buffalo's minicamp practice Saturday morning at the field house across the parking lot from Ralph Wilson Stadium. "J.P. was saying all the right things and seemed so eager to learn and get better and get out there and help the team. That's exactly how Brady was. I gave J.P. the same advice I gave Tom. I told him to do everything you can to prepare yourself for success when your opportunity comes."'

Marker Inside slant [3:01 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'A case of passing game overkill? When a team finishes ranked 27th in passing, probably not. But before exploring too deeply why Buffalo took a tight end with its second overall pick, it really came down to this simple fact: Coach Mike Mularkey couldn't have lived with himself had he let the 6-5, 241-pound Everett pass him by. Mularkey played nine seasons in the NFL as a tight end but he wasn't blessed with Everett's natural athleticism.'

Marker Notes, quotes [2:59 PM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Scouts love it when one of "their" guys gets drafted and that was certainly the case for Bills scout Joe Haering. "This one's personal," he said after Buffalo took Vanderbilt guard/center Justin Geisinger in the sixth round. Geisinger's high school coach at Mt. Lebanon High in Pittsburgh was Chris Haering, Joe's nephew. "He's what we're looking for in the kind of people they want to build the offensive line around," Joe Haering said. "He's tough and very smart. He's a typical Pittsburgh kid, in a good way."'

Marker Losman grabs the reins on the first day [2:49 PM]
Tonawanda News reports: '“I think the three months has been a positive, no question about it,” Mularkey said after Friday’s afternoon session. “His presence in the huddle, his play-calling, his cadence — all the little things people take for granted, he’s doing very well right now. “I liked what I saw."

Marker Out of film room and on to field [8:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I was excited actually for the coaches to call the plays just so I could show the players I know my plays," Losman said. "Last year it was like, "OK, J.P.'s in. Here we go. Y'know. I don't know what he's going to call, and if he calls it, we don't know if it's going to be right.' "'

Marker Rookie tight end Everett injures knee [8:54 AM]

Rochester D&C reports: '"The leadership of the NFLPA and the league office, we stand behind our policy," Vincent said on Friday at Ralph Wilson Stadium, where the Bills kicked off a three-day minicamp. "We know our program is strong. The commissioner has mentioned the numbers of cases we've had and the fact there have been no repeat offenders. We know our system works. We know our policy works. If I'm sitting at that table, I'm saying the same thing."'

Marker Northern Illinois NFL Free Agent List Climbs To Eight [9:56 PM] reports: '“The Buffalo tight end coach (Mike Miller) called during the fifth round of the draft,” Cieslak said. “They (Bills) thought I was a good fit for them. They don’t really have a blocking tight end who can catch the ball. They want me as an intermediate receiver and maybe on special teams wherever I fit in. Buffalo is looking for a physical tight end.”'

Marker Minicamp Begins with Losman at QB [9:30 PM] reports: '"It was exciting," said Losman. "I've been telling everyone I got, I got, it in the film room but you never know until you come out here. Today we had some blitz reads that we did and everything went smooth so it went good. I feel like I got it. I was nervous myself to see if I could actually do it now that I know the whole offense as opposed to last year. I felt great and I can't wait to strap it up for real."'

Marker Henry Is AWOL. Everett Hurts His Knee [9:23 PM]

Marker Bills to discipline Henry for missing minicamp [9:17 PM]

Marker Bills Open Mini-Camp [4:46 PM] reports: '“The difference between college is night and day,” explained wide receiver Roscoe Parrish, Buffalo’s second round draft pick. “The periods move real quickly, there's less mistakes, they do it one time, not really over and over again. So the intensity of the practice goes by real fast. So you just got to know what you're doing and they move on to the next play as quickly as possible.”'
