Report: Stallworth to work out for “mystery” team on Wednesday

  • Posted on February 9, 2010 at 4:15 pm

According to a Pro Football Talk report, agent Drew Rosenhaus tells the Boston Globe that  recently released wide receiver Donte Stallworth is working out for a team on Wednesday.

We have no idea if that team is the Buffalo Bills, who will certainly look to the free agent pool to replenish the position with the probability that neither Terrell Owens nor Josh Reed will be returning.

Stallworth was released by the Cleveland Browns on Monday.  He was suspended for the 2009 season by Commissioner Roger Goodell after he pleaded guilty to killing a pedestrian while driving drunk in Florida. He ended up serving 24 days in jail for the crime.

buff state logoBuffalo State’s women’s lacrosse team is ranked 20th in the nation according to the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) Division III preseason national poll.  There are 201 NCAA Division III women’s lacrosse programs in the nation.

The Bengals, under the direction of the reigning SUNYAC Coach of the Year Meg Stevens, return five All-SUNYAC players from a team that climbed into the national rankings for the first time in school history last season.  The Bengals went 16-2 overall and 9-0 in league play last season, assembling a 16-game winning streak before falling to Cortland in the conference championship game.

Sabres begin last week before Olympic break tonight

  • Posted on February 9, 2010 at 9:08 am

Jochen Hect Buffalo Sports DailyAfter losing four straight games last week the Buffalo Sabres could really use a win.  One could argue their slump is peanuts compared to their opponent at the HSBC Arena tonight, the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins don’t want to hear about the Sabres recent misery.  Boston defeated Montreal this past Sunday.  It snapped a 10-game losing streak that’s seen Boston slip to a tie for ninth place in the Eastern Conference, two points behind Tampa Bay. If the playoffs started today, Boston would be on the outside looking in.

Buffalo Bills Free Agents: Who Stays… And Goes?

  • Posted on February 9, 2010 at 8:33 am

terrell owens buffalo sports dailyFor the past few weeks, our talented colleague Brian Galliford over at Buffalo Rumblings has been generously providing our readers with a Buffalo Bills’ roster breakdown by position.  I encourage all fans to check out his brilliant breakdowns by position (as well as visit Rumblings for all Bills related news and views—simply put it’s the best Bills fan site on the web).

Anyway, with the NFL season officially over and the new Bills staff seemingly in place, it’s time to (happily) start looking forward to 2010.  New head coach Chan Gailey and General Manager Buddy Nix among other decision makers have hoards of key personnel moves to ponder.

Players will be cut and/or traded in the coming month and released players from other organizations are will be brought in during the time leading to free agency.  With a new staff and front office, there’s going to be turnover—probably more so than any recent year.

BSD Briefs: February 9

  • Posted on February 9, 2010 at 8:30 am

While leading your division and sitting in third place in the Eastern Conference hardly constitutes a “must win” game, the Buffalo Sabres have a very important home game tonight against the Boston Bruins.  It’s important in that they are in the midst of a season-long four game losing streak and have only three games left to right the ship before the Olympic break, including tonight’s affair.

If Darcy Regier doesn’t think this team needs to make a move before the trade deadline on March 3 he’s fooling himself.  The Sabres badly need another goal scorer and a little more grit.  They’ve looked exceptionally soft of late and more alarmingly Ryan Miller has looked average.  If the team doesn’t have the confidence to put Patrick Lalime in net more often they need to find a better backup option.  Between all the starts this year and the Olympics Miller is in serious danger of getting burned out before the season ends, and Buffalo has zero chance of going far in the playoffs if he’s not at his best.
