Stop when you've heard this one before. But Bills RB Marshawn Lynch is back in Buffalo and is planning to attend the team's OTA today.

Camarillo, Lynch have little in common - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"Football Outsiders managing editor Bill Barnwell ran game data from the past two seasons to determine who has had the best and worst hands. Marshawn Lynch was dead last among all halfbacks the past two seasons with a combined drop percentage of 15.4 percent. On the other hand, Bills receiver Lee Evans had one drop on 95 targets last year and has dropped only three of his 197 targets (1.5 percent) over the past two years."

"There really isn’t much more that I can say here about the quarterback position. I’ve said it all before in previous blogs, on Twitter, and in the paper. The Bills’ QB situation is a farce, and it will be one of the primary reasons why this team has no chance to end its playoff drought this season."

Seahawks have eye on unhappy Bills RB Lynch -

BillBoard: Lynch to Seattle talk brewing
"Lynch's absence from offseason practices can only lead us to believe he's not buying into the new Chan Gailey-Buddy Nix regime. Lynch made no attempt to speak with Gailey or Nix during a recent two-day visit to the team's facility. Since Lynch apparently doesn't want to be here, the Bills should help him get out."

C.J., Smooth, and Lynch could be THE THREE AMIGO'S and do that dance before they come out the tunnel... I'm just saying

John Clayton Mailbag : NFL - ESPN
"Justin in Sacramento, Calif., supports Marshawn Lynch in the three-way battle for the Bills' starting halfback position, thinking he can return to form. I think it's pretty clear they would like to showcase him for a trade and use Fred Jackson as the starter and C.J. Spiller as the Reggie Bush-type back."

Meredith finding a comfort zone -
"From start to finish inspring OTA and minicamp practices second-year offensive lineman Jamon Meredith has lined up as the team’s starting left tackle.
