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.'

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."'
