Left Guard Battle: Today we continue our look at all the pertinent positions with the left guard spot. It is a three way battle between incumbent Bennie Anderson, 2nd year man Duke Preston and free agent signee Tutan Reyes. Anderson struggled mightily as the starter last year and even lost his job briefly to Mike Williams who is now in Jacksonville. Coach McNally said on the Bills official website that the starters from last year may get first crack this year so expect Anderson to go into camp as the starter. Our pick to start the season at left guard is Reyes. He has started a lot of games the past two years for a very good Carolina offensive line and will win the job pretty quickly. Preston is the wild card in the race but he's splitting his time between guard and center and the new regime may not think as highly of him as the old one did. Take our new poll on our homepage and let us know what you think about this position battle. Depth Chart

Peters Signs Tender: Reports say that Jason Peters has signed his one year tender worth $425,000. He was an exclusive rights free agent so his rights belonged to the Bills without a chance of losing him. The team reportedly would like to lock him up long term since he is seen as an up and coming talented player.
Kids Day Set: The Bills announced yesterday that they have set their annual kids day schedule. It will return for a sixth straight year when the Bills play the Browns in a preseason game on August 26th. The game starts at 6pm and tickets for kids 14 and under are $8 and $6 for season ticket holders. There will be the usual kids day pregame activities for children and a post game fireworks display.

Fowler Has Hold At Center: The Bills are stressing competition at all positions and in the next few weeks while there will probably be little news coming out of One Bills Drive we will look at all the pertinent positions. The first spot we are looking at is the center position. This is one spot where a battle doesn't seem to be brewing. Free agent signee Melvin Fowler seems to have a near lock on the spot. He took almost all the first team snaps at the position during last weekend's minicamp. Duke Preston and Justin Geisinger are his main competition. Geisinger is still inexperienced and Preston is getting more reps at guard. Take our new poll on our homepage and let us know what you think about this position battle. Depth Chart

No Scrimmage: The Bills will not hold a scrimmage this summer. Dick Jauron said he has never held a scrimmage as a head coach and rather use the time at the camp in St. Johns Fisher. The team had a one year agreement to scrimmage the Packers last year and it was successful. If the old regime was still around they may have done it again. The team scrimmaged the Browns the past few years before the Packers scrimmage last year.
Camp Wraps: As the Bills wrapped up the rookie minicamp Dick Jauron spoke to the media yesterday afternoon. He wasn't disappointed at all in the athletic ability of his rookies. He needs to get them back as quickly as possible to continue learning the system. Players must wait until after graduation dates to return, for the Ohio State rookies that means they'll miss the next mini camp. That means it is up to the players and the coaches to make sure they stay up to speed and continue with the offseason program while they are not there. Jauron thanked the veterans who showed up since it was voluntary for them. All but four of them were there for the three day camp. He said the QB battle is continuing as they are helping each other out and they are competing but nobody has stepped far ahead of anyone else. Two players, Jim Leonhard and Roscoe Parrish strained hamstring muscles but should be ok since they were caught early. The coach says he has a lot of faith in Anthony Thomas as he adds to the already good depth at the position. Injury Page
