Everett To Hit Talk Show Circuit
Still Waiting For Coaching Staff To Be Filled Out: Dick Jauron has three spots open on his coaching staff and he may have been waiting for the annual trip to the Senior Bowl to talk to assistants around the league. Most coaching staffs go to Mobile Alabama to see the Senior Bowl practices. Over a week ago a report came out that the Bills have hired Ray Brown to be the assistant offensive line coach but that has not been made official yet. Jauron also wants to hire quality control coaches for both the offense and the defense. There wasn't one on defense last year and the offensive coach was Alex Van Pelt who is now the quarterbacks coach.

Toronto Game OK Expected: ESPN.com is reporting that the league is expected to give the Bills the ok to play a regular season game in Toronto. This is not unexpected as most owners seemed to think it was a good idea when Ralph Wilson brought it up at an owners meeting. No word yet on which game will be played in Toronto but it will probably be a game later in the season after the CFL's season is over.
