DAILY REPORT
– Bills President/CEO Russ Brandon released the following statement yesterday regarding the New Stadium Working Group announced Monday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo:
“We are very appreciative of the continued support of New York State and Erie County for the Buffalo Bills franchise.

Our primary current operations focus is, as it must be, on the modernization process that is occurring presently here at the Ralph Wilson Stadium campus.   We have to bring it home safely, on time, on budget and with a level of quality we can all be proud of. We are confident our fans will be excited about the numerous changes taking place on our stadium campus and we look forward to being near completion by the start of the 2014 season.

In the 2013 Ralph Wilson Stadium lease the parties collectively saw the wisdom in the establishment of a New Stadium Working Group. This group was designed to include representatives from New York State, Erie County and the Buffalo Bills.  The group’s mandate is to begin to explore ‘(i) the development and construction of a new stadium either on the [Ralph Wilson Stadium site] or on another location in Erie County, or (ii) a substantial renovation of [Ralph Wilson Stadium].’

We look forward to reengaging with Lt. Governor Bob Duffy and Empire State Development President Kenneth Adams as well as County Executive Mark Poloncarz and his staff, all of whom were instrumental in securing the current modernization project. We also welcome Mayors Byron Brown and Paul Dyster as well as Dottie Gallagher-Cohen of Buffalo Niagara Partnership to the effort.”

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Rob Moore, Buffalo Bills Wide Receivers Coach
On the Bills’ wide receivers corps:
“It’s extremely talented. There’s a lot of talent. In the brief clips that I’ve seen, when you watch the tape you see a great potential for growth. These guys are very talented. You can’t teach the speed that you have on this team.”
