New Stadium In Bills' Future?
Three Visit: Three players came to visit as the Bills continue to look at free agents while draft preparations continue. The biggest name among the Thursday visitors was RB Garrison Hearst. His visit could be a precursor to trading Travis Henry. Also visiting was Arizona DE Kyle Vanden Bosch and Washington TE Fred Baxter. Hearst ranks sixth among active rushers in the league. Vanden Bosch is a four year veteran who is also a candidate for a backup spot. He has had two major knee injuries in his four year career. Baxter is looking to fill a backup TE role, he is a prototypical blocking tight end.

New Downtown Stadium? In an effort to revitalized the depressed Buffalo economy, the Buffalo common council has passed a resolution that supports building a new downtown stadium for the Bills. The move would add tourism and money to the struggling downtown area and show the Bills they have support from the local officials. The team has seven years remaining in their 15 year lease with Ralph Wilson Stadium. There would be many hurdles to overcome before this dream became a reality.
