Just as things start to quiet down for Marcell Dareus, we find him back in the news. This time although it is not due to an arrest. Marcell has entered a pre-trial intervention program. I like this move by Dareus. This is the first step, non-vocal step, that he has made to show that he is looking and willing to take accountability as well as start to move on the right path. [ESPN]
Corey Graham; Back to his roots in Buffalo. Graham was surprised to get a phone call for the Buffalo Bills during free agency and to find out that the Bills were interested. Shortly after the initial contact, Graham was signing on the bottom line. Graham likes what he sees in the Buffalo Bills and what is to come this year. He sees similarities with the Bills defense as well as the Ravens defense that won the Super Bowl, two years removed.
“It’s up there. When you’ve got a great D-line the way we have here, when you’ve got great linebackers and you’ve got potential. Guys that are really out there to play man-to-man in the secondary, you’ve got a chance to be special.”
There could be a change to how one will tailgate this year and moving forward. The Buffalo Bills have sent a request to the NYS legislation to allow them to open up beer stands before noon; 11 am is the targeted time. The Bills are looking to move to a more family friendly environment and move away from the uncontrolled tailgating environment. There is a concern that opening beer sales earlier is not providing a family friendly environment but encouraging drinking more.
“Bills fans seem to have a taste for beer before noon on Sundays,”
