Bills' Dareus gets with the program - The Buffalo News
"It's nothing," Dareus said Wednesday about his presence at the two-hour workout. "There was not a doubt in my mind I'm coming. My agent was like, 'Marcell, you've got to do the insurance thing, you're not covered with them [the Bills] yet.' I said, 'You know Todd, I still want to go out there and show my face. I'm the first pick. The [Bills' players] were kind of like, 'We want him out here.' I'm not going to turn them down, because I've got to show some kind of support because I do want to be out here. I'm kind of excited. They wanted me out here, so I'm here."

"They didn't draft a tackle in the high rounds. I look at last year as something to build off of and this is my year to breakout."

"It was important for him to get out here," remarked David Nelson. "He's out here right now with the defense, learning some of the defense. You can't put words on how important that is.
