Marker After 6 games, Bills' identity still not clear [1:07 PM]

Marker Bills open to offers on Mike Williams [1:59 AM]

But we are not actively shopping anyone on this team.”'

Marker Bills need a critique from outside [1:58 AM]

Marker Mike Williams seeks trade, and Doug Whaley says Bills would entertain it for 'fair compensation' [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"He's taking it as permission. I take it as anybody on this team, we have to do our due diligence, and if there's somebody out there that's willing to give us compensation that we think is fair and would help us in the long run, we would entertain it. It doesn't mean we would do it, we would entertain it. Again, that's for anybody, not just Mike Williams. Russ (Brandon) would do it for me if someone called for me. That's part of the business, especially coming close to the trade deadline."'

But we're not going to make them out to have super powers or anything like that."'

Marker Patriots have last word against turnover-prone Bills [1:59 AM]

Marker Bills’ defense, Orton outclassed by unsinkable Brady [1:57 AM]

Marker Gronk brings a grin to Brady’s face [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Actually, there was a sense that Brady loved simply being around Gronkowski with his youthful exuberance and energy. Gronkowski, more than any other player on the Patriots’ roster, breathes life into a successful but stodgy organization with a boring coach who gives the impression he sucked the fun out of football.'

Marker Chandler ends long drought for Bills tight ends [1:55 AM]

Marker Quarterly Report [1:51 AM]
