QUOTES OF THE DAY
JERRY HUGHESBuffalo Bills Linebacker on why he is a good fit for the team’s defense and his transition to Buffalo:
“Just by the way I play football. I’m fast on the field, I’m relentless, I’m always going after the ball-carrier. I’ll do whatever it takes to help the team. Everyone here’s been great, from the fans down to the coaching staff to the guys in the locker room and the front office. Everybody comes in every day with a smile on their face. I’ve been up here sometimes at 7 a.m. and everyone’s treated me well. It’s been nothing but love.” via BuffaloBills.com (5/20) 

PHOTO OF THE DAY
Park Cleanup
Buffalo Bills staff and members of the Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy took part in a full-staff volunteer day at Delaware Park on Friday to help restore a section of the park near the corner of Forest Avenue and Rumsey Road. Bills staff members left their Orchard Park offices to assist in the effort by planting trees, laying gravel, repainting a park shelter, safety surfacing the area and making various other improvements to the setting. The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy continually aims to improve the community’s parks system and relies on the support of events like Friday’s. Click here for a photo gallery from Friday’s volunteer day
