Unsuspecting Sources Leading Bills Turnaround : Buffalo Sports Daily
Late round draft picks and undrafted free agents abound on the Buffalo Bills roster and they're making huge contributions.

OT Green released; Hubbard to practice squad - BuffaloBills.com
"Released from the 53-man roster late last week to address a shortage at the fullback position, wide receiver Paul Hubbard was added to the practice squad Tuesday. In addition the team signed LB Jammie Kirlew (pronounced JAY-me) and DL Kommonyan (Ko) Quaye to the team’s practice squad. Buffalo also placed LB John Russell on the practice squad/injured list. The club also released WR Montez Billings from the practice squad."

Bills unheralded talent shining - BuffaloBills.com
"I think that’s part of our identity, kind of the no names," said Fitzpatrick. "We’re all in it for each other and that’s fine with us. My job is to put them in a position to make plays. All the guys out there are pretty much the lower level guys in terms of draft status or national attention. We’re out there trying to make plays. Obviously we don’t get any hype or the national stories. I guess we’re the no names that are doing well."

Jackson cashes in on his carries - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"It's definitely tough to get three running backs involved. It's a lot easier to do two," Jackson said. "Getting more touches, I think, is going to help any running back be able to put up some more numbers. The more touches you get the better you get in the game. [That] is how I've always felt about playing."

Bills release Green from IR - Bills & NFL - The Buffalo News
"Green was paid a $2 million roster bonus and a $100,000 workout bonus by the team, and was guaranteed to receive his full $1.5 million in base salary after going on injured reserve. That total could be lessened if Green and the team reached an injury settlement."

Beaver County Times: Buffalo's Chan gang shows improvement
"Absolutely do not — under any circumstance — underestimate the Buffalo Bills. That’s the message coach Mike Tomlin will repeat over and over again this week to his Steelers. They may have an AFC North Division showdown in Baltimore ahead of them on Dec. 5. But they dare not look past this Sunday’s game in Buffalo."

‘Stevie’ becomes Bills’ No. 1 WR - Wellsville, NY - Wellsville Daily Reporter
"The twist ending here is that Evans’ complimentary receiver may turn out to be Evans himself. Now, it’s Evans playing second fiddle to Johnson in a much-improved Bills’ offense."

Jairus Byrd struggling to follow up big rookie year | ProFootballTalk
"Byrd had nine picks a year ago, but a lot of times interceptions can be largely based on luck and overrated as a measure to determine effectiveness. Byrd just hasn’t been as effective or lucky following the groin surgery that ended his rookie year."

Steelers can’t afford to overlook Buffalo Bills | Steelers Chronicle
"In what could be considered a classic trap game, the Buffalo Bills have nothing much to play for this season other than pride, and are winners of their last two games. The Pittsburgh Steelers could enter this Sunday’s game with their heads thinking of their match-up in two weeks with co-division leading Baltimore. But that would not be wise."

Pitoniak Impressed By Bills Win In Cincy - RochesterHomePage.net
"The top thing Scott Pitoniak noticed about the Bills victory over the Bengals was the comeback. It was something not expected from a 1-8 team. Scott also thinks Ryan Fitzpatrick might be OK as the starting quarterback past this season. The wide receivers are emerging, the defense is making plays and even a win over the Steelers isn't complete fantasy. All part of a chat with Thad Brown Bills fans should enjoy."

Hope you saved your receipt on your Merriman jersey | Buffalo Wins
"I don't fault the Bills for signing him as it totally made sense at the time. However, for 1.7 million dollars to equal out to a jersey at the pro shop, a press conference and 15 minutes of practice, sure doesn't look like a profitable business transaction."
