Wyche Decision Next Week: WGR is reporting that a decision on Sam Wyche's future as a member of Mike Mularkey's staff will not come until Monday or Tuesday of next week. We reported earlier that a decision was likely today. It isn't a matter of if he's qualified to become the QB coach, it is if his health will hold up. He has been on a trial run most of the week.
Crosby Signs With Pats: Former Bill FB Phillip Crosby has signed with the New England Patriots. He was released by the Bills as part of an injury settlement this past year after he was injured.
Bills To Attend Henson Workout: As we've been reporting the Bills are one of many teams that are interested in Drew Henson. He is holding a public workout next week and Tom Donahoe said the Bills will have a representative there. Many teams are interested in his services, his rights belong to the Houston Texans until draft day. They reportedly want a second round pick for him. Donahoe has said that a lot of homework needs to be done before the Bills would make a move on Henson. The variable factor is he's been out of football for three years.
Wyche Trial Run: The only reason Sam Wyche has not been named the QB coach yet is because of health reasons. That is why Mike Mularkey has been giving Wyche a "trial run" this week. Wyche has suffered from heart problems and voice problems since having his vocal cords cut in surgery a few years back. Mularkey has been testing him to see if he will hold up. He said that so far he has held up well. Mularkey said it will be a gut feeling on whether or not he will hold up or not. He wants to hire Wyche but not at the expense of his health. He is expected to make a final decision today.

Bills Hire DB Coach: Steve Szabo is the team's new defensive backs coach. He was hired today coming from New England where he was a volunteer assistant coach this year. He was a linebackers coach for eight years in Jacksonville. There are now 14 members of Mike Mularkey's coaching staff. They still need a QB coach, which Sam Wyche is the front runner for, and possibly an offensive assistant.
Donahoe On Henson: Tom Donahoe said the Bills have yet to contact the Texans regarding Drew Henson. He has been let out of his contract with the Yankees and will workout for all interested parties, the Bills are expected to be among them. Donahoe said a lot of things have to happen before the Bills would be interested. Being out of football for a few years is a notch against Henson and the team would have to do a lot of homework before deciding whether or not to persue him.
