There have been a couple of things worth mentioning going on with our beloved teams lately, so I thought I'd attempt to bring you all (but mostly me) up to speed.
[DGWUS Super Special Fun Fact: Paul Byron would later be part of the trade for Robyn Regehr. Way to go, Paul!]
The most recent piece of news for the Bills is that a possible addition to the team has slipped through their inept fingers. Former Rams linebacker Pisa Tinoisamoa signed a one-year deal with the Chicago Bears yesterday. Some will write this off as not much of a loss, but then they'll remember that our linebacking corps consists of two guys named Ellison & DiGiorgio. This was a swing and a miss by the Bills, in my opinion. You can plunk down $6.5 mil to rent T.O., but not to upgrade the worst part of your extremely weak defense in a division regaining Tom Brady? Good call, Russ.
Meanwhile, two weeks of OTAs are in the books and for the most part, all is quiet around 1 Bills Drive. Terrell Owens, despite his tweeting and reality televising (coming up next, T.O. rents a condo ... WATCH OUT!), has been focused on getting acclimated with his new teammates and impressing some with his bursts of speed. Second-year cornerback and aptly named Reggie Corner is starting to get comfortable as the starting nickleback in the Bills' defense while Ashton Youboty continues to recover from plantar fasciitis. New offensive linemen and part-time private eyes Levitre & Wood are getting plenty of snaps at their respective guard spots. Everyone is experiencing deja vu as top receiving prospect James Hardy, I mean, Shawn Nelson is struggling to adjust to his new surroundings. And Aaron Schobel is still trying to convince everyone that he's healthy enough to play mediocre defensive end again. But there have been some mutterings out of Bills camp that deserve a little more attention...
And finally, in spiteful Bills news, J.P. Losman is still looking for a job (most likely he's running around in circles, panicking at the lack of offers and fumbling his ability to handle a job interview) and this Ravens fan is annoyed with Willis McGahee (dead link). He's your problem now, Baltimore!
