Ticket Sales Rises As Camp Nears
Camp To Open With Two-A-Day: The Bills will hit training camp running with back to back two-a-days on the first two days of camp on Friday and Saturday. Both sessions will last about 1:50 each. Those are the only two-a-days on the schedule as the individual day practices will run 2:05. Most days, when there is just an afternoon or evening session, there will also be a 45 minute walk-thru that is not open to the public. Our homepage has a mini-training camp schedule on the right side showing what's coming up in the first week of camp.

Training Camp Closing In: It's hard to believe that the summer is flying by so fast and that means one thing to football fans...training camp is almost here! As we have done for the past 10 years Bills Daily will follow the events at St. Johns Fisher college and bring you our usual synopsis of the daily events. Before the players can report on Thursday and hit the field for the first time on Friday the Bills must first come to terms with half of the draft picks. Five picks remain unsigned including their top three picks and the fifth and sixth round selections. Expect Alvin Bowen and Xavier Omon to sign pretty quickly. Then it should go in reverse order with third round pick Chris Ellis signing mid-week. James Hardy and Leodis McKelvin will likely go down to the wire if it is anything like past years.

Favre Option: With the ongoing soap opera in Green Bay regarding the future of Brett Favre, the media is taking a look at possible locations for the veteran future hall of famer. If the Packers do decide to trade him, he will likely go to the AFC. Are the Bills an option? This isn't a type of move the Bills would normally make, and it won't be a move they make this time. They are firmly behind the development of Trent Edwards, Favre would hurt that development. Ralph Wilson also wouldn't want to shell out the $12 Million he would cost, so don't look for the Bills to be a player if Favre hits the trade market. Do you think the Bills should go after Favre?
