Bills News and Notes 6/15: All Owens, all the time

Y'all asked for a weekly photo caption contest; ask and ye shall receive.  The above photo is an AP shot of Buffalo Bills head coach Dick Jauron during the last of three mini-camp practices last Thursday.  Have at it; we'll vote on a winner sometime later this week.  I'll be picking out my favorites for voting purposes; bonus points go to anyone who incorporates The Office into their caption, because the photo itself, and in particular Jauron's prominence and expression in it, has a definite Michael Scott feel to it.

Here's some interesting reading material from the past week that you may or may not have missed.

* The Globe and Mail calls the Bills' signing of WR Terrell Owens an "outrageous gamble" and a "shotgun wedding."  On next week's reporting agenda? They're hearing Brett Favre to the Vikings.

* Speaking of Owens, he's helping the fantasy value of several of his teammates.

* One more Owens-centric article: when asked how his grasp of the Bills' play book is coming along, his response? "It's coming."

* Bills head coach Dick Jauron is on the hot seat after three consecutive 7-9 seasons, but he doesn't feel any more pressure than he has the previous three seasons.

* Jauron ended the team's mandatory three-day mini-camp a bit early, rewarding his players for an off-season of high effort.

* Here's an interesting article on the no-huddle offense from the Buffalo News.

* Second-round draft pick S Jairus Byrd, who has not participated in Bills team activities since early May's rookie mini-camp thanks to a stupid NFL rule, spent some time in Orchard Park over the weekend catching up with secondary coach George Catavolos.

* Byrd's fellow rookie, first-round pick DE Aaron Maybin, will be working out with Ravens LB Ray Lewis.  Pray that some of Lewis' winning ways rub off on Buffalo's prize rookie.

* CB Ashton Youboty is looking for a healthy season in 2009 - a contract year for the fourth-year defensive back.

* Former Nebraska QB Joe Ganz will try out with the Bills.

* With mini-camps and OTAs officially coming to a close, all will be quiet on the western front until July 25, when the Bills officially open training camp.

* Buffalo's first three home games of the 2009 season - dates with the Buccaneers, Saints and Browns - have all sold out.
