Inside The Bills | Bills ‘D’ to be multiple
"I think we’ll probably end up being a true multiple front team instead of a true 3-4 team just because our personnel dictates that. I think we’re probably a little bit better suited. I’ve not talked to the defensive staff about this, but just looking at it on the surface right now, I’d probably say we’re going to be multiple front rather than a Kansas City which sits in 3-4 no matter what, or Cleveland which sits in 3-4 no matter what. I don’t see us being that team. I see us being more of a multiple team."

Inside The Bills | Evans future
"Lee Evans, who had his season cut short by an ankle injury from which he’ll fully recover, is considered by some outside the organization as expendable in light of the emergence of several other receivers on the roster this season. Head coach Chan Gailey doesn’t see it that way."
