Bills To Play Six Games In Toronto: Russ Brandon and Doug Marrone were among the Bills contingent in Toronto this afternoon for a press conference announcing the renewal of the Bills Toronto series. The Bills will once again play one regular season game per year over the next five years. They will only play one preseason game over the length of the deal and that game will be before the 2015 season. In the previous deal they were suppose to play three preseason games but ended up just playing two. Financial details were not announced but the deal is expected to be much less than the previous deal that was worth $78 Million. Russ Brandon said through the team's website, "The Bills partnership with Rogers Media is key to our franchise’s regionalization plan and we are excited to continue it for years to come. Our regionalization efforts have strengthened the franchise’s foothold in Western New York by supporting our efforts to further develop our fan base in Toronto and Southern Ontario. The Bills-Rogers Media partnership continues to give us tremendous exposure in the market and its success will only accelerate with a few wins on the field."
Toronto Series Renewal Finalized: The Toronto Sun is reporting that the five year extension of the Bills Toronto series is done and there will be a press conference today at Noon in Toronto to announced the renewal. Doug Marrone is expected to to attend. The renewal was pretty much a done deal a while back but the hold up was the completion of the Bills lease to continue playing at Ralph Wilson Stadium. A source told the paper the amount of the new deal will be significantly less than the $78 Million the Bills received in the original five year deal. Ticket prices are also expected to be cheaper than they were the first four years of the deal. There will be just one preseason game in the five years instead of the three that were in the original deal.
Offensive Quality Control Coaches Hired: Doug Marrone said that he would use four quality control coaches and he has now hired the two of them that will take care of the offense.
