Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

The Buffalo Bills continue to work out players in anticipation of the draft and veterans return, talking up the new defensive scheme.

Bills players hoping changes lead to better results - Sports - The Buffalo News

Mike Pettine's new hybrid defense is certainly getting talked up as players return to One Bills Drive. This is Mark Gaughan's piece for the Sunday paper. By the way, if I hear the term "hybrid" one more time, I may have to start dropping Vampire Diaries references.

"The one notable non-participant in the Tennessee private workout is wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who by many accounts is one of the top players available at his position. The reason for his absence was unknown, but he has been on the road within the past week at a pre-draft visit with the Rams, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch."

Kolb looking forward to not getting sacked so much - AFC East Daily
"In 15 games with the Cardinals during 2011 and 2012, Kolb was sacked on 11.6 percent of his drop backs (57 times, according to The Buffalo News). Arizona boasted arguably the worst pass-protection unit in the NFL over that span. To compare, former Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was sacked on 5.6 percent of passing plays in 2012."

Branch has high praise for Tarvaris Jackson - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"It was a rebuilding process for Seattle. So Jackson didn’t have quite the tools Seattle had last year. But the guy is tough as nails, smart and has a cannon for an arm. Buffalo fans should definitely realize that they got some stature back there."
