"It seems like it’s a great defense to be in," Posluszny said. "I think the coaches will let us play within the structure of the defense and allow us to make plays. I know a lot of the guys are excited about (the switch)." Posluszny gives a lengthy interview about the defensive changes.

NFL -- Bill Barnwell: Ranking the best and worst at every OL position - ESPN
"In 2009, the offensive line that allowed the most sacks was also the one that went through the most players. The Buffalo Bills had 11 different players start at least one game up front for them on offense, and those linemen combined for a league-high 28.5 blown blocks leading to sacks. In addition, running back Fred Jackson led all backs with four blown blocks that led to sacks."

Donovan McNabb has a baker's dozen of possible destinations - Mike Florio - MLB - Sporting News

"The Bills have a trio of second-tier quarterbacks, and they are one of only two teams who have been linked to McNabb that have not denied it. Some think that owner Ralph Wilson won't pay McNabb's eight-figure salary for 2011 or give him an extension that might approach nine figures. But if the Bills are serious about becoming a contender in this quarterback's league, they need an elite quarterback."

Oakland has emerged as leader in Donovan McNabb sweepstakes. Doesn't mean another team couldn't get deal done, but Raiders are team to beat.

Bucs re-sign Crowell |
"The Bucs added to their linebacker depth Monday, re-signing unrestricted free agent Angelo Crowell to a one-year contract. The former Buffalo Bill has missed the last two seasons with a chronic knee condition, and then a torn biceps muscle."

Buffalo Bills Should Trade For Baltimore Ravens OT Jared Gaither | Bleacher Report
"The Bills have the 9th pick in the second round this year, and dealing the pick for Gaither could allow Buffalo more flexibility come draft day, where they are expected to take a left tackle with their No. 9 pick in the first round. The Bills would be getting a proven talent with experience for a second round price, over a risky selection in the draft."

"The other receiver who caught Bradford's passes was Josh Reed, a free agent on the market after spending the past eight years with the Buffalo Bills." HUH???

Why do I get the feeling that there is a very good chance the Buffalo Bills may take Florida QB Tim Tebow at #9 Overall? #Tebow

Twitter / Scott Wright (Draft Countdown)
In regards to Tebow and the Bills, there's no guarantee that he will be there for Buffalo in Round 2 at #41. In fact, it's unlikely. #Tebow

Watching a lot of Clausen for Yahoo feature -- teams will have to ask whether it's worth a high 1st pick for a very limited downfield arm.

Wow. Gil Brandt says Sam Bradford's workout was the best he's seen since @Troy_Aikman worked out for Cowboys. And that's saying something.

RB Best’s interesting comment – Inside The Bills
"There’s a bunch of teams like the Eagles, the Bills are in the picture now, the Saints might be in the picture," said Cal RB Javhid Best at the Combine. "There’s a lot of teams because there are a lot of running backs whose contracts are coming up. And then there’s a lot of teams that just need running backs, because running backs come in and out of the league every year now."

Early reports positive on Bradford – Inside The Bills
"Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford had his pro day Monday and early indiciations are it went very well for the player many think could be the top overall pick. TFY Draft Insider did report that receivers did have to wait on some throws early in the workout, but Bradford was accurate with his passes on the move and though he did not show a "rifle arm" he did prove that he can make all the throws."

Tebow works out for Bills : Buffalo Bills : The Buffalo News

"The teams that are struggling, they don't have a quarterback," Kelly added. "You need that guy behind center, not only the guy who can throw the ball and make big plays. But to be the leader and be able to pull people together."
