Bills think Orton is good fit for them
'“I think you’d be surprised of what he can do. I think we’ll go work during the week and see how much he feels comfortable with handling,” Bills coach Doug Marrone said. “Probably more than what most people think because of his experience.”'
No C for EJ, but does it matter?
'Does anybody remember, or even care, who the Bills’ captains were during the ‘90s? Of course not. But you wouldn’t have to go too far to find someone who could run down the list of Sabres’ captains. So it’s a bit of a different animal by the nature and tradition in the sport. In fact, the NFL didn’t even start its practice of captain patches until 2007.'
Watkins confident he’ll play
'“We’ll try just about everything; whatever helps me. We’re just going to see how far I can go. I think it’s just pain tolerance I have to get through and be prepared for,” he said.'
Kyle Orton settles in with Buffalo Bills
'"If you've got kids I think you kind of know that they just like being around you, but this was the right decision for me," said Orton, who signed a one-year contract with the Bills, with a one-year player option attached, to serve as EJ Manuel's backup. "When this opportunity arose, I jumped at it. This was the right team for me. This was the right organization for me."'
EJ Manuel not among six Buffalo Bills named as captains for 2014 season
'"No, not in my mind because of the fact that the players did it," Marrone said. "If you look at it, it’s mostly veteran guys that have been around. I think that position has leadership qualities in it just by the position itself."'
