Gailey hints at Bills interest in Jeff Garcia

  • Posted on April 21, 2010 at 3:04 pm

Chan Gailey was on the “The Big Early” radio show this morning on The Fan 590 in Toronto. While speaking with Don Landry & Gord Stellick, the subject of quarterback Jeff Garcia came up.

While Gailey remained non-committal in adding Garcia to the roster, he hinted strongly that it could be coming.

“You’re always interested in quality and certainly Jeff Garcia would be quality,” Gailey said.  “To me, to say absolutely no or absolutely yes would be a lie— but to say you’re always interested in adding quality to your football team, you better believe it.”

Bills sign TE Michael Matthews

  • Posted on April 21, 2010 at 2:04 pm

The Buffalo claimed tight end Michael Matthews off waivers from the Detroit Lions Wednesday morning, as first reported by Adam Caplan of Scout.com.

Matthews is regarded strictly as a blocking tight end.  He spent time with the New England Patriots and Lions last year.  He was cut by the Patriots on October 20 and signed with Detroit on December 15. He was waived by Detroit yesterday.

He was originally an undrafted free agent who signed with New York Giants in 2007. He also played for Bills head coach Chan Gailey at Georgia Tech.

In  36 career games Matthews has caught eight passes for 54 yards and no touchdowns.

Vanek to be a game-time decision

  • Posted on April 21, 2010 at 1:30 pm

Thomas Vanek participated in the Buffalo Sabres morning skate and Lindy Ruff is calling him a “game time decision” to be in the lineup for tonight’s critical game four against the Boston Bruins.

“That will be a game-time decision on whether he plays,” Ruff told Buffalo News reporter Mike Harrington. “We’re just trying to get him a little extra ice to see what he looks like.”

Also, Matt Ellis will be out tonight according to Harrington, and recent Portland call up Cody McCormick will take his place in the lineup.

No word on who would come out of the lineup if Vanek can go tonight.  Drew Stafford is the most likely candidate.

Bills should find excellent value in round two

  • Posted on April 21, 2010 at 7:00 am

The second round of the NFL Draft has traditionally been very kind to the Buffalo Bills throughout the team’s 50-year history. The franchise has selected future Hall of Famers Thurman Thomas and Billy Shaw in the second round. They’ve found a slew of solid long-term starters in the round, including Jim Dunaway, Reggie McKenzie, Jim Haslett, Fred Smerlas, Darryl Talley, Nate Odomes and Phil Hansen, among others.

Even during the desolate landscape that has been the last decade of Bills football, really solid players have been found in the second round. Travis Henry and Aaron Schobel were second-round picks of Tom Donahoe. The Bills got longevity, if without huge production, out of players like Josh Reed, Ryan Denney, Chris Kelsay and Roscoe Parrish. Paul Posluszny was an exciting second-round pick in 2007. Just a year ago, the Bills picked a Pro Bowler in the second round in Jairus Byrd, and added an excellent building block along the offensive line in guard Andy Levitre.
