Womack Visit: Floyd Womack spoke to the media after his visit with the team today calling Buffalo a nice play but cold. He feels he would fit in pretty good in Buffalo but didn't talk about what position he would play. He said he's played more tackle but will play where his team feels more comfortable putting him. He has played guard and tackle on both sides of the line. He played left tackle in college and would have no problem playing there. He said he'd like to be part of the great chemistry Buffalo has. He is visiting with Green Bay tomorrow and would like to get a deal done with a team as soon as possible.
Rivers Visits: The Bills announced that tight end Marcellus Rivers also is in town visiting with the team today. He joins Floyd Womack in visiting with the team. Rivers played with the Giants the past four years and had two starts in 2003. Rivers spoke to the media after his visit and thought the visit went good. He called Buffalo a nice town and said the organization has good people in it. He is considered a solid special teams player and he likes to do it all at the tight end position. He is considered a better receiver than a blocker but he has improved tremendously. This was his first visit but will take a couple of more visits but not too many, he would consider not making other visits if the Bills made him a fair offer.
DeMulling Still Available: Free agent offensive lineman Rick DeMulling visited Detriot but left without a contract. He visited with the Bills on Sunday and Monday and the Ravens have also expressed interest in the Colts' free agent. DeMulling may command $3 Million a year as the top guard left on the market and the Bills may be unwilling to give him that much considering Chris Villarial already gets paid in that range.
Bills Host Visitor: The Buffalo News is reporting that the Bills will entertain Seattle free agent offensive lineman Floyd Womack today. He has started 22 games over the past three years with the Seahawks, mostly at right tackle. He has also played left tackle and guard.
Teague Move Possible: Tom Donahoe told The Buffalo News that it is possible that the Bills will move Trey Teague back to left tackle if they don't find a suitable replacement for Jonas Jennings. Teague came to Buffalo from Denver to play left tackle before being moved to center during his first training camp with the team. Donahoe said Teague would not have a problem with the move since he's a team player. This move has been speculated since it became obvious they wouldn't re-sign Jennings, this is the first time a possible move has been discussed publicly by the Bills.
Pro Day At Wisconsin: The University of Wisconsin held a pro day yesterday with many scouts in attendance. The Bills contingent including DL coach Tim Krumrie, Mike Mularkey, and Tom Donahoe. Krumrie did his usual drill where he went head to head with the impressive group of six Badger defensive linemen. He said they held up well in the hand to hand combat battle and none of them quit. The same drill was the reason the Bills were impressed enough with Tim Anderson to draft him in the third round last year.
