Bills Land Gildon: The waiting game is over, Jason Gildon is now a member of the Bills. ESPN.com is reporting that he agreed to a one year deal worth $1.25 Million late last night. The deal includes $500,000 in incentives. Gildon chose the Bills over the Packers and Bengals. Cincinnati wanted to give him a two year deal that didn't work for him. The difference for Gildon was the presence of Tom Donahoe in Buffalo. Gildon will add depth to the linebacking corp and he may see some time at defensive end as a pass rushing specialist. This is the role that was to be filled by Jeff Posey, so it will be interesting to see how the Bills use the two strongside linebackers.

Training Camp Battles: With the players reporting to camp in 18 days it's time to take a quick look at some of the position battles to watch at St. Johns Fisher College in August. There is a big battle for the starting left guard spot between Marques Sullivan, Mike Pucillo and Ross Tucker. The left defensive end spot will be a battle of two young players, Ryan Denney and Chris Kelsay. We would also throw into the mix veteran Keith McKenzie. The free safety battle between Izell Reese and Coy Wire will also be interesting. Which battle is the biggest? Let us know by taking the poll on the homepage.

How Will The Bills Be? Not much is going on as the team rests before they report to training camp at the end of the month. It is time to ponder how good the team will be. If things break the right way and they avoid the injury bug this team can be in the double digits in wins. If the offense doesn't evolve under the new system and they have some badly timed injuries, they can match last year's 6-10 season. What do you think? Take our poll on the homepage.
