The T.O. Show Comes To Buffalo

Butler A Key To Line: We continue to look at some players to watch this summer as the OTAs continue on Tuesday. Brad Butler makes an important move one slot to his right and becomes the starting right tackle this season. Butler has not played tackle at all in his professional career but played their most of his college days. If Butler can make the move smoothly it will go a long way to stabilize a volatile offensive line situation. Butler may be more suited for the outside than the inside and says it is more of a mental transition. If that is the case it should work since Butler is one of the more intelligent players in the league. Do you think the move will work? Take our poll on our homepage and let us know!

McCargo Looks To Rebound: Two players that were highlighted by the media during the first week of OTAs were John McCargo and Brad Butler. McCargo is looking to prove that he isn't a bust and he can be an important part of the defensive tackle rotation. He is supposedly in the best shape of his career (doesn't everyone say this in the offseason?). He feels his back is better since surgery and feels he's ready to breakout. If he can play well he will help the defensive tackle rotation considerably. If not, he likely won't make the team and more pressure will be on Marcus Stroud, Kyle Williams, and Spencer Johnson. Do you think he'll rebound? Take our poll on our homepage and let us know!

1st Week Went Well: Dick Jauron met with the media after yesterday's final OTA session for the week. He said he thought the week went well and he was happy with the attendance for the voluntary workouts along with the effort. The second week of the OTAs begin on Tuesday afternoon and run through Thursday.


Wednesday May 20, 2009

Bills Release WR: The Bills made a roster move at the conclusion of OTAs today. They released WR Mike Jefferson. He was on the practice squad late last season. The team is loaded with talent at the position and Jefferson wasn't getting many reps at the OTAs. There are still 10 wide receivers on the team's depth chart.

Parrish, Whitner Back: Donte Whitner was back on the field for today's final OTA workout of the week. Roscoe Parrish was also back according to the team's website. Marcus Stroud and Corey McIntyre were not in attendance. McIntyre has been told by the team to take care of his legal issue. McIntyre reportedly passed a lie detector test and says the charge against him is a case of mistaken identity.

Tinoisamoa Still A Possibility: Rams free agent LB Pisa Tinoisamoa is visiting with the Bears today and also has a visit setup with the Eagles. He visited with the Bills last week. According to ESPN.com's Tim Graham the Bills are still in the hunt for his services and Tinoisamoa will decide between the three teams after he finishes his visits. He would likely move right into the starting lineup at linebacker, replacing Keith Ellison, if he signed with the Bills.


Tuesday May 19, 2009

Stroud Back In Action: Marcus Stroud hit the field today after sitting out yesterday's OTA practice. Dominic Rhodes was also on the field after missing yesterday's session. Donte Whitner was not there as he was in court in Cleveland. Also absent on Tuesday were Roscoe Parrish, Corey McIntrye, Jarius Byrd, and Danny Urrego. The two rookies are unable to participate in any OTAs or minicamp because their college finals will not be completed until mid-June.

Whitner Granted A Delay: Donte Whitner's hopes of a speedy end to his case did not happen. His case was granted more time to fight the charges against him. The case is delayed to June 19th.

Whitner In Court Today: Donte Whitner is in court today in Cleveland to answer charges for the incident outside a nightclub last night. At the OTAs yesterday, Whitner said he expects to be cleared of all charges today and said he has videotape evidence that he did nothing wrong.

Owens Felt Like A Rookie: Terrell Owens addressed the throngs of media after his first practice as a member of the Bills. He said he felt like a rookie just trying to get the plays down and getting in sync with Trent Edwards and the rest of the offense. He was observed as quiet in practice but he said that is how he is in practice especially when he's getting familiar with new teammates. He said the jawing will start later on but he's focusing on getting the offense down right now. He says he expects to be in Buffalo as much as he can be during the OTAs because it's valuable for him to get everything down as much as he can.

Up-tempo First Workout: The first of 11 organized team activity workouts is in the books. The team's website described it as an up tempo workout that was watched closely by a huge contingent of national media taking in Terrell Owens' first practice as a Bill. The newest Bill wide receiver gave them something to watch as he caught a 60 yard touchdown bomb from Trent Edwards. Not to be outdone, Lee Evans caught a 40 yard bomb from Edwards.

New Look Offensive Line: Kirk Chambers and Seth McKinney got the early first team reps at guard but were quickly replaced by the two prized rookies, Eric Wood and Andy Levitre. Brad Butler was busy getting re-acquainted with his old college position as he appears to be the man at right tackle. Butler knows it will take him some time to get re-adjusted but will do what is best for the team.

Schobel 100 Percent: Aaron Schobel pronounced himself 100% ready to go as he participated fully in his first workout since his foot injury last year. Alvin Bowen also participated fully after suffering a torn ACL last summer. Not participating in practice were: C.J. Hawthorne, Marcus Stroud, Ashton Youboty, John DiGiorgio, and James Hardy.

Bills On The Field: The players are on the field this morning for the first OTA practice. According to the team's website many veterans are in attendance including Terrell Owens, Aaron Schobel, Terrence McGee, Langston Walker, and Paul Pozluszny. The site also says that Owens and James Hardy are catching passes on the sidelines. Hardy is recovering from an ACL tear late last year.

T.O Arrives: Terrell Owens arrived in Buffalo late last night for the start of OTAs today. His flight was delayed but when he did finally land there were many fans to greet him. On his twitter page Owens said it was a welcome he'll never forget and called it priceless. He will get the key to the city today from Buffalo's mayor.
