Found September 03, 2012 on Buddy Nixon:

The Bills just signed two more players to the practice squad, let’s take a look.

TJ Heath is a 2nd year corner out of Jacksonville State who played in 5 games for the Jaguars last year, recording 2 special teams tackles. He was signed by Cincinnati at the beginning of August, before being cut last week. Kind of like the Jags version of Namaan Roosevelt, only not nearly as productive. At 6 foot tall, 188 pounds, Heath should provide a big corner and some special teams help should the Bills need to dip that far into their reserves. Heath said “I want to come in here and compete off the top and try to win a position anywhere. It doesn’t matter where it is, I just want to be on the field and contribute to this team as much as I possibly can.” That was in response to the Bengals signing him, but I would imagine he’d have the same attitude after joining Buffalo.

LaMark Brown is a TE and former Minnesota State Maverick who spent his preseason with the Falcons. In the third preseason game against Cincinnati, he caught 4 balls for 47 yards and a TD, which was probably key in grabbing the Bills attention. According to this video he played WR in college, and even spent some time at RB. Interesting player to keep track of.


Buffalo Bills Final Roster Analysis

Quarterbacks At quarterback, starter Ryan Fitzpatrick was obviously a lock, as was backup Tarvaris Jackson, who they just traded for. Jackson’s 2012 salary became guaranteed when they asked him to take a paycut, so they weren’t cutting him less than a week after trading for him. Brad Smith, their wildcat quarterback, who also plays wide receiver and special teams, was safe as...

Buffalo Bills: Can the Building Bills Circle the Wagons and Sneak into Playoffs?

When the Bills upset the Patriots last year, it seemed like the adage that no one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills would indeed hold true. The franchise itself was even so confident at this point that they gave QB Ryan Fitzpatrick a $100 million dollar contract when previously he was just that guy who went to Harvard.  And that’s when the wheels fell off. As the...

Bills place CB Brooks on IR; re-sign WR Martin

The Buffalo Bills have placed rookie cornerback Ron Brooks on injured reserve, and re-signed receiver Ruvell Martin four days after he was among the final cuts. Brooks, who had surgery to repair a broken foot last week, will be eligible to return this season. That's because the Bills placed him on the NFL's newly created IR/designated for return list. That means, Brooks...

Rex Ryan Yapping About Steve Johnson’s Success Against Revis

Cuts have been made, the roster is (almost) set, and Bills Jets week here. How do I know? The Jets are doing what they do best, which is running their mouths and trying to belittle the fact that Steve Johnson thinks Revis Island is a joke. Specifically, New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta went around asking everyone what they think of the concept that Steve Johnson “owns”...

Bills vs Jets week 1: Keys to the game

If you didn’t already know, I’m a die hard Bills fan. I have trouble grasping the concept that this could be a close game, or it could be a complete whipping from either side. I think this season opener is more important to these two teams than any that they’ve had in recent memory. With that being said, here are the keys to the game for Buffalo and what they need to win. ...
