Day Two In The Books: The Bills wrapped up the second day of the three day mandatory minicamp with a 90 minute workout at the stadium. According to the team's website, they continue to rotate players at the right cornerback spot as they look for a starter to replace Nate Clements. Roscoe Parrish got mad at himself for dropping two catchable balls. Peerless Price went down on his shoulder hard on one play with Terrence McGee on top of him but he was ok. The Bills are healthy through the offseason program with just John McCargo and Robert Royal sitting out the minicamp. Injury Page
Three Soldout: Thanks to season ticket holders buying extra seats coupled with group sales that begun on Saturday, the Bills have now soldout three games this year and have two others closing in on sellouts. Certain number of tickets are being held back for all games for potential season ticket buyers. We reported earlier that the opener and the Dallas Monday night game were soldout before group sales began. You can add the Sept. 30th game against the Jets to that list. The Baltimore game on Oct. 21st and the Patriots game on Nov. 18th are nearing a sellout as well.
Bills Offer To Kill Year: Marv Levy told the Rochester D&C that the Bills have made a major concession in trying to get Darwin Walker in camp. They have offered to kill the final year of his contract if he will come in and play in 2007 under his current deal of $1.3 Million. The team would then look at a new deal for 2008 if he comes in and does well. If not, he would be a free agent next year. The next move is in Walker's court but if he doesn't accept the deal the Bills are ready to move on without him.

Bills Ink Draft Pick: The Bills have signed their first draft pick. C.J. Ah You was actually the last player picked by the Bills but as this thing usually goes, he's the first to sign on the dotted line. Ah You said he's excited and grateful for the deal and looks forward to contributing in his rookie season in anyway he can.
Day One Complete: Day one of the three day minicamp is now in the books and every player was there with the exception of Darwin Walker. Rookie WR Scott Mayle was back after missing the OTAs because of his college's final exam schedule. He got some reps as a punt returner on day one according to the team's website. Other notes from the team include Jason Webster getting another extended look as the starter at right cornerback. Marshawn Lynch getting more first team reps and John McCargo doing some light jogging and individual drills as he battles back from two foot surgeries.
Walker Not At Minicamp: Minicamp got underway with a workout this morning from 10:30am - 12:00 noon and the one player not there as expected was Darwin Walker. The two sides couldn't come to terms on a new contract and Walker falls further and further behind his teammates. Marv Levy spoke to the media after the workout and said the final decision now rests with Walker. He'd like to have the DT in attendance but they are prepared to go on without him. Walker has been advised that he is subject to a fine but the team would not discuss and possible fines. If a new deal isn't made by August 5th his rights revert back to Philadelphia for a 6th round draft pick. The team has two more minicamp practices at the same time as today's workout tomorrow and Wednesday.
Minicamp Begins: The final offseason activity begins today as all players under contract and draftees are required to be at One Bills Drive for the only mandatory minicamp for all players this offseason. The camp runs through Wednesday and everyone should be there with the exception of Darwin Walker who isn't planning on attending unless a restructured contract is reached. We will have more on the first day of camp later on today.
