Bills Gearing Up For Camp
Two Picks Remain Unsigned: C.J. Spiller said recently a holdout is possible as he plans to be patient in waiting for a deal. What makes a deal harder to obtain is the fact that only one first round picks have signed as of yet. The paramaters for 2nd round pick Torrell Troup to sign are coming more into focus as more 2nd round picks sign. It is likely he will sign a deal early in the week before the players report on Wednesday. The placing of Joe Klopfenstein on injured reserve opens up a spot for Troup when he signs.

Klopfenstein Placed On IR: Training camp hasn't even started yet but the Bills have already placed their first player on injured reserve. Joe Klopfenstein has been placed on the list and there is the likelihood of an injury settlement that will lead to his release. Klopfenstein missed most of the offseason workouts with an undisclosed ailment. The move opens up a roster spot for when the team signs another draft pick. Front Office Page.
Roster Limit Reached: The Bills have reached their 80 man roster limit with the signing this week of 3rd round draft pick Alex Carrington. When they sign either of their top two draft picks the Bills will need to make a roster move. That means two players on the roster right now will likely not be when the team hits training camp assuming both of the top picks sign on time. Depth Chart.

Carrington Signs: The Bills have signed third round draft pick Alex Carrington. Adam Schefter reports it is a four year deal which puts it at the same length as the other six signed draft picks. That leaves just the top two picks unsigned with training camp starting 10 days from now. He told the team's website that he's blessed to have signed his deal and looking at the numbers gives him a big smile. Front Office Page.

Two Games Soldout: The Bills have announced that the opener against the Dolphins on September 12th and the November 28th game against Pittsburgh are soldout just one day after individual game tickets went on sale to the general public. This isn't a surprise as we reported yesterday the opener was down to single seats and it was expected that Pittsburgh fans would quickly by up the tickets for the November game. The team will have a much tougher time selling out four of the remaining five Orchard Park games. The October 3rd game against the Jets will likely sellout as limited availability remains for that game. Fan enthusiasm is way down and Russ Brandon admits season ticket sales off the pace from the last two years when they went over 55,000 season tickets. Reports say they may top out below 50,000 season tickets last year raising the possibility of more blackouts this year.

Opener Down To Single Seats? Individual game tickets go on sale today but yesterday was a presale day and it appears that the opener against the Dolphins is down to single seats according to a perusal of ticketmaster's website for tickets. Season ticket holders were able to buy extra tickets for a while now and group sales were also already available before yesterday's presale for facebook, twitter, and text message followers of the team. Ticket sales seem way down already however as it appears the other six home games (excluding the Toronto game) have tickets available that hasn't always been the case the past few years. The Pittsburgh game will likely sellout or be down to single seats fairly quickly after Steeler fans gobble up tickets today.
Spiller Readying A Holdout? Don't expect first round pick C.J.Spiller to arrive at St. Johns Fisher College with his teammates when they report on July 28th. Spiller said he's prepared to holdout in an interview with the Sporting News. He said he's letting his agent handle the negotiations and he will be patient as he does not want to rush into a contract. Spiller said the most important thing is to do the right thing for his family and if he's not in camp on time the veterans on the team will understand.
