CBS Sportsline reports: '"You ask the vets ... 'If we can get another chance to be together and talk about the system, it would be another chance to help us win,'" said Mularkey.

Marker Notes, quotes, anecdotes [5:15 AM]
CBS Sportsline reports: 'QB J.P. Losman turned heads in Bills rookie camp with his quick release, strong arm and mobility.

"He throws a good ball and has a good strong arm. He looks like a fairly mobile guy," veteran Drew Bledsoe commented. "He's definitely a solid player. It'll be interesting to watch him develop and hopefully in a few years down the road when I ride off into the sunset I can look back and watch the progress he's made with us working together."'

Marker Bills Team Report [5:14 AM]

Marker Jim Ritcher To Go On The Bills Wall [6:24 PM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Ritcher is third on the Bills all time games played list with 222. He trails only Bruce Smith and Andre Reed.'

Marker Ritcher moved by selection [8:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I was a little undersized when I came into the league and in order to beat the lineman across from me I had to know where he was going before he started going there," Ritcher said. "Joe Devlin was a big reason I was able to do that. He took me under his wing and taught me how to watch film and helped me develop. Then you had Fred Smerlas across from me every day in practice. He made me a better player every day. I was blessed with good teammates."'

Marker Don't worry, Bledsoe won't be hurting for money with new deal [8:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The only way Bledsoe would get cut after 2004 is if he and the Bills have as miserable a season as they did in 2003. The expectation is Losman will be starting in 2006, if not some time during the 2005 season. So the chances of Bledsoe seeing the 2006 salary are questionable.'

Marker Ritcher fondly recalls K-Gun [5:23 AM]
