Stewart Slash: Mike Mularkey is at the owners meetings this week and he spoke to the Buffalo News about the possibility of Kordell Stewart joining the Bills. A deal is not considered imminent as Stewart considers to weigh his options. Mularkey feels Stewart isn't ready to give up on his dreams of being a starter again but with no starter position available around the league he may have no choice. Mularkey said if Stewart does come, he would play in every game seeing occasional time as a receiver or runner like he did in his early days in Pittsburgh.

Gibson Looking To Contribute: Oliver Gibson is looking forward to training camp and hoping to contribute to the team he said today. Gibson's agent confirmed that his client has agreed to a two year deal with the Bills and will sign it this week. The team confirmed that an agreement had been reached this afternoon but did not give any details which is club policy. Gibson said he chose Buffalo because of his familiarity with Tom Donahoe, Mike Mularkey, and DL coach Tim Krumrie who coached him in Cincinnati. He is expected to battle Justin Bannan and Ron Edwards for a spot on the depth chart.
Gibson Agrees: The Buffalo News is reporting that free agent DT Oliver Gibson has agreed to terms with the Bills. He was drafted by Tom Donahoe in Pittsburgh in 1995. He was a long time starter for both the Steelers and the Bengals. He had 29 tackles and 1 sack for Cincinnati last year after recovering from a torn achilles tendon muscle. He will provide depth in the middle of the defensive line.
Attention Turns To Draft: With the first minicamp behind them, and the draft less than a month away, the Bills front office now turns their attention towards the big weekend at the end of April. Just about all the free agent visits are now complete at least until the second wave begins on June 1st when more veterans are expected to enter the market. Certain loose ends may be wrapped up in free agency this week as the Bills decide whether or not to sign a backup QB before the draft and possibly a tight end.
