In case you missed it

- Bryan Scott and Leodis McKelvin re-signed with the Bills this week. Sal Maiorana liked the McKelvin deal, while fans were a little dismayed that Scott would be returning to his linebacker role. The team also retained the services of tight end Mike Caussin and FB/HB/TE Dorin Dickerson with tenders.

- The Bills announced last month that they would not tender receiver David Nelson. He spoke for the first time since that announcement, saying he believes his knee injury cost him a shot at the 2013 season with Buffalo.

- Stevie Johnson ruffled feathers over Super Bowl week for flippantly discussing his workout regimen in years past. He believes those comments were "way overblown."

- Shawne Merriman called it a career.

- Buffalo lost out on a major movie starring Kevin Costner. He will now play the general manager of the Cleveland Browns.

- With free agency set to start at 4PM on Tuesday, Jerry Sullivan of The Buffalo News opines that Andy Levitre is too expensive for the Bills to keep, while John Kryk of the Toronto Sun says they need to keep him. Eric Wood's looming free agency could ultimately be the deciding factor in how aggressively Buffalo pursues Levitre. Brian also penned these thoughts on the Levitre situation.
