Strong Safety Battle: One thing is for sure, there will be a new starting strong safety this year, the question is who? Lawyer Milloy was released this offseason opening up the door for the starting job to be won by either a highly touted rookie or a free agent signee. Matt Bowen comes over from the Redskins and has talent but is coming off a subpar season last year after losing his starting job when he tore an ACL in 2004. He had a great season in 2003 and the Bills hope he can regain that form two years removed from his serious injury. The main competition will come from the highest Bills player drafted since Mike Williams. Donte Whitner is definitely the Bills future at the position but will he start from day one? Veteran Coy Wire is also in the mix but may have a hard time just making the team. Rashad Baker is also in the mix since he can play both safety positions but he will get more time at free safety. Look for Whitner to be starting on opening day with Bowen getting a lot of looks in certain schemes. Who do you think won't make the cut? Take our poll on our homepage. Depth Chart.

Backers Get Special Treatment: The Bills announced yesterday that registered Bills Backers will have the opportunity to buy individual game tickets a bit early. Those tickets go on Sale Saturday July 15th but backers can by them starting Friday July 14th at 9am. Those tickets can only be bought at the The Bills Official Website when you log in with your Bills Backers username and password.
Bills Add Punter: The Bills added another leg to the training camp roster. They signed undrafted free agent punter Josh Brazen. He will take some of the wear and tear off of Brian Moorman during training camp but has no chance of making the team. He set a school record at Kent St. last year with a 42.4 yard average and is second the school's all time list with a 41.2 yard college career average. Front Office Page.

Ticket Sales Down: Despite the fact that four home games have limited seats available all news is not good on the ticket sales front. Season tickets are down 5% from last year. 2005 had one of the highest amounts of season tickets in club history with over 47,000 tickets. This year demand is down as fans aren't as optimistic about the team's hopes for the coming season.

Those tickets were coveted by season ticket holders and group sales. Season ticket holders had first shot at extra individual tickets followed by groups two weeks ago.

Wide Open Field: As we continue our look at the position battles heading into next month's training camp, we look at the wide open field battling it out at wide receiver. The team will most likely keep five at the position but may be forced to keep six because of heavy competition if one player can double as a special teams ace. That player would most likely be Sam Aiken who has been a stalwart on special teams the past couple of seasons. This year the Bills may not have the luxury of keeping Aiken for that reason alone. Lee Evans is the only lock to make the roster and will be the number one guy. You would expect Peerless Price and Josh Reed to make the team because of the bonuses they signed. Andre Davis is a new regime signee as well and has a good chance of making the club. If they all succeed in being on the final roster that leaves just one or two spots with intense competition. Roscoe Parrish also should make the team because of his upside and the fact he was a high draft pick. Since that was the previous regime all bets are off but it may be costly to release him. If Parrish is the fifth wideout there is a good chance they'll carry six. Aiken will be in the mix for that spot but will be challenged by two other young veterans and an undrafted free agent. Jonathan Smith showed some flashes in limited action last year but he is a solid punt returner. George Wilson will remain in the mix because he has caught everything in sight in the off season workouts. The most intriguing prospect his Martin Nance who has good size and talent. Chris Denney is the one player who doesn't have much of a chance to make the team. So who do we think will be on the 53 man roster? We think they will have to carry six and they will be: Evans, Price, Reed, Davis, Parrish, and Smith with Nance going to the practice squad. Who do you think won't make the cut?
