Gildon Deal Official
Ricky Williams To Retire? We don't normally cover other team's news here on Bills Daily but this news sends shockwaves throughout the AFC East and the league. Reports out of Miami say that Dolphins star RB Ricky Williams will announce his retirement because his heart just isn't into playing anymore. If he does go through with it, the Dolphins take a major blow as they have no true viable backup and there is nobody left on the open market to go get. This could definitely hurt Miami's chances in the AFC East and in turn help the Bills. My gut feeling is, that he doesn't go through with it and will return this season.

Gildon Wants To Compete: Jason Gildon wants to compete for a starting job during training camp. He feels the team will give him that opportunity. He says he will be ok with it if he doesn't win a starting job. Chances are Gildon will be used as a situational pass rusher. It will be tough for him to overtake Jeff Posey for the starting strongside linebacker job since Posey has a year in the system and is considered a better pass coverage backer.

Three Picks Remain Unsigned: As training camp approaches the top three draft picks remain unsigned for the Bills. Tom Donahoe said talks are progressing nicely with third round pick Tim Anderson and he looks for talks to pick up this week with first round picks J.P. Losman and Lee Evans. There is little doubt that Anderson will be in camp when players report on July 31st but the top picks may be a different story. Donahoe doesn't forsee any long holdouts since both players know how important it is to be in camp and both agents are very respectable. The last three years the top pick has not made it to camp in time but the holdouts have been very short.
