Bills All-Time draft memories: Andre Reed
"About 10 minutes later the phone rang," said Reed. "It was Bills GM Terry Bledsoe. He just told me they picked me and congratulated me and I said, ‘Okay, first of all, where’s Buffalo?’ And I heard the whole draft room laugh at that. I didn’t know where Buffalo, New York was. I didn’t know if it was near New York City or whatever. It wasn’t until later that I knew it was by a lake and there would be a hell of a lot of snow happening." Reed actually went to his local library after being drafted to find out exactly where Buffalo was located in New York State.

Trying to figure out Tebow | National Football Post
"In yesterday’s Mock Draft, NFP scout Wes Bunting has Tebow going to the Bills at No. 9. That high? Hey, why not?

Because, right now anything goes when trying to slot Tebow." blog " Blog Archive " Checkdowns: Median draft position vs. 2009 AV

"What makes up a game is four or five plays, a play here, a play there and things are completely different. This defense, new offense, new attitude, new change of pace is the difference in the fourth quarter and we win half of those football games and we go 10-6 or 9-7. Right now we are just working hard ... we are just trying to plug away and win those games in the fourth quarter this year rather than fade away and lose." -- DT Kyle Williams on the attitude adjustment underway this off-season.

"If Donovan Morgan gets another chance, he vows to keep his trap shut and his nose clean. An on-field argument with a veteran player led to his release from the Buffalo Bills during their 2007 preseason camp. Morgan said he complained when another athlete chided him for not hustling back to the huddle after a play, and the two men had words. It doesn't matter that they patched things up in the locker room after practice. The damage was done."
