Despite a widespread belief that running back Marshawn Lynch wants out of Buffalo and that other teams are interested in acquiring him, Bills General Manager Buddy Nix says he expects Lynch to return in 2010. "Our intention is for Marshawn to be here," Nix said, per the Buffalo News. "He's under contract. We think he's a good back. We need two backs. Our intentions are for him to be here. All this trade talk, it's not coming from us."

Cowher talks about his Buffalo talks

"I have tremendous respect for Buffalo," Cowher told Tim Graham of ESPN.com. "We had some talks. It didn't really go that far. I couldn't make the commitment. I have tremendous respect for [Bills owner] Ralph Wilson. I think it's a tremendous fan base. I think it's a golden opportunity for Chan Gailey. "It just wasn't the right time and place. I pretty much go with a gut feel when I make decisions like that. I think it through, but there was nothing specific. It's a class organization."

CBSSports.com senior writer Clark Judge and CBS’s new Bills correspondence/blogger Mark Luwidczak preview the Buffalo Bills 2009 season. They discuss Trent Edwards, offensive line cohesion, and of course, T.O. Mark is a friend of mine from college days at Penn State. We'd always watch the Bills game at Champs Sports bar in State College, PA and actually created quite the Bills Backers group. Since graduation, Mark has been an Associate Editor for Bills Digest magazine and now adds to that role as CBS's official Bills correspondence. Congrats Mark and best of luck to you in the future (although you are now somewhat the competition!)

Travis Henry Sentenced to 3 Years in Prison

In addition to serving a three year sentence, the former Buffalo Bill running back must also complete five years of probation. Henry was sentenced today after pleading guilty to one count of cocaine conspiracy in April. He was arrested in September 2008 in Montana after being found with 6 pounds of marijuana and 6.6 pounds of cocaine.

"It's been a hell of a ride," said Berman of his bond with the Bills. "It started back in the summer of '88. I was traveling from training camp to training camp, and when I showed up at Fredonia, I had this real good feeling about the team. The Bills had gone 7-8 the year before, and I just sensed that things were in place for them to take off. On SportsCenter, I started building them up, and they made me look good every week. "I think the special relationship I've had with the Bills was due in part to my closeness in age to many of the players from their Super Bowl run. I was 33 at the time, and most of the key players on the Bills were in their mid-to-late twenties. It's like we grew up together."

Packers, Bills among teams set to shock

7. Buffalo Bills: This one might be a surprise because I'm going against the formula. The Bills' .570 schedule is the sixth-hardest in the league. Whether they've played hard schedules or easy schedules, the Bills have finished 7-9 for three straight seasons. Their break is "non-common" non-division games against the Bengals and Kansas City Chiefs, which are winnable. Plus, Terrell Owens should add scoring punch to their offense. He usually takes an offense to an average of 24.0 ppg or better because of his ability to catch touchdown passes. The Bills averaged 21.0 ppg last year. A two-point improvement could put them at 9-7.

Bills to Chase DeShaun Foster?

13

From John Clayton's blog: Foster on Bills' radar? Now that Lynch is out for three games, the Bills might have to revisit the idea of signing 49ers running back DeShaun Foster. The Bills looked at him last month but didn't sign him. Fred Jackson is good enough to be the starter for the first three games, but the team needs a dependable backup to get them through September. The other option might be finding a back in the first three rounds of the draft.

Goodell on Lynch: 'There are consequences'

17

Tim Graham of ESPN.com asked Commissioner Goodell today about Marshawn Lynch and the likely suspension he will receive from the February 11th incident involving an unregistered handgun. Part of Goodell's response: "I don't know anybody who likes to be disciplined," Goodell said. "I don't like issuing discipline. I would rather not be doing it. The reality is very clear that there are consequences for your actions, and when those actions reflect negatively on the NFL we're going to make sure there are negative consequences in hopes they don't happen again."

Q: My Chiefs need a new OC,OG, and probably a RT. Why not give LeCharles Bentley a look? He's still fairly young, and was dominant before that injury. From what I understand, he should be ready to play. Where is Bentley right now? Is his career over? A: Talking to Bentley a couple of weeks ago, I got the feeling that the Bills are interested in him. The Chiefs might be, too. Obviously, his knee problems would be a concern. With the infection he suffered in the knee, he doesn't have full motion, but he is confident the knee is good enough to play. He's worth a look. Bentley does need to get in an offseason program as early as possible as long as he is healthy. He's all football. He's running a training academy trying to help young athletes learn football, particularly young offensive linemen. Because of the problems with his knee, he wasn't going to be involved in the first, second or third wave of free agency. Now, half the free-agent list is gone. It's time for the Bentleys of the world to get their test drives.
