"He called me and we were talking and he had gone to Atlanta, Pittsburgh… there were six teams trying to sign him," Wannstedt told "Around that time was when Chan made the change and we were going to the 4-3 defense and he came up for a visit and we needed linebackers.

Bills' Fitzpatrick steps it up - The Buffalo News
"I just go out there and throw; that's what I've done my whole life," he said. "No one's really ever taught me how to do it. Now for a guy to come in and say, 'This is why you're missing that throw low,' for him to actually have evidence for me to look at and say, 'OK. It looks like that's something I really need to work on,' and for a guy to be as respected as he is, to be as knowledgeable as he is, that's somebody that I'm going to listen to every time."

Former TE Jay Riemersma recently ran for Congress a couple of years ago, but was narrowly beaten in a Republican primary."

Bills, Vince Young adjusting to each other - YNN
"I don't have the (tattoos) that he does and all that," Fitzpatrick said, regarding Young. "He's 6'5'', he's a pretty big guy. We actually are pretty similar personalities. He's a pretty nice, easy going guy. We all get along well. That's something that's important. You want to be there for each other, and that's kind of the number one thing you look for in a quarterbacks room as a quarterback."

Tyler Thigpen has "small" tear in abdomen | ProFootballTalk

VIDEO: T.J. Graham Wants To Be A Wing Legend -
"The most interesting thing from the interview, however, came when Rubenstein asked him about his wing consumption.
