The Penalty Flag:
The Buffalo Bills had nothing to lose by signing Shawne Merriman off waivers in 2010, but have yet to see "Lights Out" put together a successful full season.
According to the Buffalo News, Merriman completed the entire 90 minute practice yesterday, his first football workout since October.
"You know, it's the first day of practice, for me anyway, in a long time," Merriman said. "So I had a lot of time off and got a chance to go back out there with the guys and put on a helmet again. ... It felt pretty good, man."

Despite turning 28 last week, Merriman says he's turning back the clock after rejoining his teammates on the field for a voluntary minicamp session Thursday.
It was his first practice since having season...
Linebacker Shawne Merriman was cleared to return practice and was on the field at the Bills' OTA session Thursday. It's a big step for Merriman, who has battled three years of injuries, including early-season surgery to repair his Achilles' tendon in 2011. When the Bills took to the practice field Tuesday, Merriman was in Birmingham, Ala. visiting with Dr. James Andrews...
Listen Bills fans, have you ever been more pumped up for a season?
Well, us at Buddy Nixon can tell you that we haven’t.

Though the Buffalo Bills had an offense that was ranked first for several weeks in 2011, it was their much improved defense that stole this show the first week of OTAs in 2012.
Sure, quarterbacks coach David Lee was tweeting about the "confidence in Fitz's eyes" and the receiving corps looked deep even with their leader, Stevie Johnson, nursing a surgically-repaired...
Leodis McKelvin is a former 1st round pick of the Buffalo Bills, going 11th overall in 2008. However, he has yet to live up to his billing and the regime that drafted him is gone. The Bills have used premium picks on cornerbacks in each of the last 2 years, taking Aaron Williams in the 2nd round in 2011 and taking Stephon Gilmore in the 1st round in 2012, so it was fair to wonder...
It’s been a forgetful first two years in the NFL for 2010 fourth round pick Marcus Easley.In two seasons, the only games that Easley has participated in have been two preseason contests. Both of which came last year.A knee injury caused him to miss all of his rookie year, and a heart ailment forced him to have to sit the entire 2011 season. Needless to say, Easley and the rest...
When you start talking fantasy, the Buffalo Bills aren’t necessarily the first team that comes to mind. Don’t let their meager 6-10 record fool you, they’re a team who can put some points on the scoreboard (23.3 per game in 2011 which ranked 14th) and in essence help your fantasy team.
Here are the guys in Buffalo that you should have on your list come time to do the fantasy...

Look, we have been trying to be reasonable about this business separation between the Houston Texans and former defensive standout and #1 overall pick, Mario Williams. As we previously talked about a LONG TIME AGO, the idea of the Texans letting Williams walk was a bullet the organization had to bite. Now that he has taken his talents to the Buffalo Toronto Bills (* see note), everything...
Is the offensive tackle talent lacking in the NFL these days? One personnel chief believes it is an overrated position right now. Plus, Cowboys cornerback Mike Jenkins is not on the trading block and Jerry Jones has his rationale for sticking with Jenkins, another reason for Andrew Luck’s contract holdup, Shawne Merriman has something to prove, and more.
