PLAYERS: Jeff Tuel
TEAMS: Buffalo Bills
The Buffalo Bills won't be competing at Rogers Centre until Week 13 this year, but some of the team's rookies have plans for some north of the border fun a bit earlier than that.According to the team's official Twitter feed, the first-year players are headed to Toronto on Wednesday for some batting practice with the Blue Jays before catching the game against the Colorado Rockies. One of those players is undrafted free agent Jeff Tuel, who spoke with John Murphy Tuesday about the cross-border trip and his own baseball background."I'm pretty fired up about it," Tuel said. "I've got a big baseball background so I'll be swinging for the fences, that's for sure."Tuel told Murphy that his experience dates back to his youth, and that he played baseball as much as he did football growing up. Rotating between third base and pitcher, Tuel left the game his senior year of high school to fully dedicate himself to football."It's like ridin...

Bills QB Competition is Open, But Not Even

Since the coronation as franchise savior drafting of QB EJ Manuel by the Buffalo Bills, one of the most talked about stories heading into camp has been whether Manuel will start week 1, or if Head Coach Doug Marrone (HCDM, for short) will turn to grizzled vet Kevin Kolb to minimize his own growing pains as a brand new head football coach. And shoot if you thought Buddy Nixon didn’t...

Manuel or Kolb: Who deserves to start for the Bills?

For the Buffalo Bills and new Head Coach Doug Marrone and the rest of his coaching staff, there is a lot of work that needs to be done in order to bring this team back into the playoff picture.

Bills, Jairus Byrd reportedly not close to getting a deal done

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s been no movement between the Buffalo Bills and safety Jairus Byrd who’s currently holding out after being slapped with the franchise tag. There hasn’t been any real movement in these talks, according to sources, so based on that alone one might not be optimistic. But, man, the Bills cannot afford to risk losing any good young...

Mike Pettine on Hard Knocks Part 1: Pettine is Likes to Fight Guy

When the Buffalo Bills hired Mike Pettine away from the New York Jets earlier this offseason, my immediate thought wasn’t what a huge get the guy probably was for our defense (that was my second thought). No, the first images that came to mind were those of a salty mouthed, bald headed defensive coordinator of the New York Jets who was one of the more entertaining characters on...

No Progress Between The Bills & S Jairus Byrd

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there hasn’t been “any real movement” towards am agreement on a long-term extension for Bills S Jairus Byrd.
