Thomas Headed To Wall Of Fame

AP Photo - Thurman Thomas Thomas To Wall: Thurman Thomas will become the 22nd person to be put on the Ralph Wilson Stadium wall of fame. He will be inducted at a ceremony at halftime of a Bills game this year. That game has yet to be decided but it will either be the Miami game on October 9th or the Atlanta game on September 25th. He told the Buffalo News that his induction will be something special and hopes to have some of his former teammates there. Bruce Smith has already told him he'll be there. It is also very likely Darryl Talley, Andre Reed, Jim Kelly and others will be on hand for the celebration. Thomas became the only running back in NFL history to lead the league in yards from scrimmage four straight years. He was also the league MVP in 1991 and is a very strong bet to make the Hall of Fame.

Roster Loaded With Receivers: Taking a look at the Bills depth chart shows it is loaded with people who can catch the ball. This is normal for this time of the offseason. Hey have 12 wide receivers, one who is in NFL Europe. There are seven tight ends on the roster, but three of them have knee injuries and one is in Europe. The team also uncharacteristically has five quarterbacks, one is in Europe. The defense is much more balanced with six defensive ends, and seven tackles. There area also six outside linebackers and four inside backers. There are 10 corners, which is normal in the offseason to cover all those receivers. One is in Europe. Another interesting situation is there are three kickers, including one in Europe.

He has had problems with dropped passes the last two years and had his season cut short by a knee injury last year. He acknowledges that he needs to have the best year of his career this year to survive. He says he will do whatever he can to help the team. WR coach Tyke Tolbert told the Buffalo News that he is still excited about Reed because he has seen what he can do.

Everett Back This Year? The agent for Kevin Everett told ESPN's John Clayton that his client could return before the year is out. He said the good news is that it is a clean tear involving only one ligament. He did acknowledge that he'd be out until at least September or October. The Bills may end up putting him on injured reserve depending on his recovery or taking it week by week on the inactive list like they did for Willis McGahee in 2003.

Everett Has Torn ACL: The Bills worse fears were realized. After re-evaluating the knee injury to rookie Kevin Everett, it was determined that he indeed tore his ACL and will undergo surgery. No timetable was set for his return but he is most certainly lost for his entire rookie season. Injury Page.

Losman Calls Camp A Success: J.P. Losman spoke with reporters at the end of minicamp yesterday. He had an extra opponent in the final practice, the wind. He said it is good to take advantage anytime you have a chance to throw in the wind. One on ones was a bit tough but he got into a good rhythm on seven on seven drills. He said he tries to throw the ball harder in the wind. His initial thoughts on the weekend camp were that it was a success. He feels they got a lot accomplished and took a huge step forward although there is still a long way to go. He said by the second day it was exciting to watch Roscoe Parrish. He said he has to learn how Eric Moulds runs routes in order to get into a better routine with him. He said he is staying in Buffalo and continuing the things he has done throughout the offseason. He raved about his relationship with QB coach Sam Wyche. He said they get along so well and that is a good thing since they spend so much time together.
