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.
