Bills DL Marcell Dareus will be featured in the ESPN series âHey Rookieâ tonight (Monday) on ESPN2.
Dareus along with other members of the 2011 NFL draft class will be profiled in the program as film crews followed several of the rookies around during parts of their first NFL season. The program airs at 11 pm ET on ESPN2.
How did the Buffalo Bills wind up 6-10? At the midway point of 2011 they were 5-2. They would only win one more game, and lose seven in a row. Not good at all. This one perplexes me a bit, as we have seen some questionable decisions be made by the management but they seem to have talent. Why it never all comes together for them who can say? Of course I can try to say, but that is...
Bills QBs coach David Lee was largely credited with introducing the Wildcat scheme to the NFL back in 2008 when he was quarterbacks coach with the Miami Dolphins. Now with the Bills, Lee sees an even more dangerous ball handling weapon in Brad Smith than he ever had in Miami.
âIâm really glad heâs here,â saidÂ Lee of Smith.Â âI think the biggest thing is in Miami we ran...
His career cut short by injury probably isnât long enough to merit more consideration for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but Alex Hickey make a good case for Bills Wall of Famer Tom Sestak, arguably the best defensive tackle the franchise has ever seen.

Edwards rejoins the Dolphins after spending the past two years in Buffalo where he was fired by coach Chan Gailey after last season. He coached linebackers for the Dolphins from 2005-09.
Bills WR Stevie Johnson, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent come mid-March without a new contract agreement with Buffalo, appeared on a Sacramento radio station late last week and said he will not be doing touchdown celebrations moving forward.
Appearing on 1140 SportsRadio the FAN in Sacramento, Johnson said the TD displays are behind him now.

The Buffalo Bills re-signed restricted free agent long snapper Garrison Sanborn to a multi-year deal on Monday.
Brad Smith took the time to break down the Super Bowl XLVI matchup on Buffalobills.com, but was reluctant to pick a winner. Stevie Johnson on the other hand is going with the NFC.
âHonestly both teams are good,â Johnson told 1140Â The Fan in Sacramento.Â âBoth defenses are good to me. As a choice Iâm going to go with the Giants. Itâs tough because I grew up a 49ers fan...
The Buffalo Bills
reshaped their coaching staff Monday by adding Andrew Dees and Eric Thatcher,
and reassigning Bob Bicknell, Bob Sanders and Adrian White.
Garrison Sanborn was the first of Buffaloâs three restricted free agents to re-up with the club. The question is will offensive linemen Chad Rinehart and Kraig Urbik also be extended something more than just a qualifying tender offer?
As restricted free agents, the club can hold onto your rights as a player by tendering a one-year qualifying offer. Upon signing that offer a player...
