Inside the Bills:
Just caught up with Bills DE Shawne Merriman, who was back at One Bills Drive today (Thursday).
Merriman was checking in with the athletic training and medical staff for a routine progress report. The pass rusher is about four and a half months post-op from his Achilles surgery. He said he’s feeling good.
Good to see him back on two good feet even though he’s got more rehab ahead of him.

Nix is perfectly happy with the Bills...

Let me be the first to say it... Buffalo should take him.
Hines Ward was supposed to retire in a Steelers uniform. Just two seasons ago, his contract was restructured to go through 2013, he had already logged 14 seasons with Pittsburgh, where he had been drafted to start his NFL career, and had been essential in winning two Super Bowls for the franchise.
