Tight ends help

Posted by Chris Brown on August 22, 2010 – 10:51 am

The two healthy tight ends on Buffalo’s roster were working with a couple of other players on the roster with respect to blocking assignments in practice Sunday morning.

With only Jonathan Stupar and Michael Matthews practicing for now, the coaching staff had fullbacks Rodney Ferguson and Corey McIntyre working on some blocking drills with the two tight ends.

Should the Bills not add another tight end to the roster prior to the team’s next preseason game, it bears watching as to whether the staff makes more use of their fullbacks for tight end blocking type roles here in the short term.

Bills adding big backs

Posted by Chris Brown on April 12, 2010 – 4:37 pm

Buffalo’s last two additions to their offensive backfield bring some noticeable size to the Bills offensive backfield.

Monday’s signing of Rodney Ferguson and last week’s signing of Walter Mendenhall both appear to represent a certain type of back Buffalo was looking to acquire.

Mendenhall (223 pounds) and Ferguson (234 pounds) both carry some weight behind their pads.

It will be interesting to see if the Bills see them as short yardage and goal line type backs or something more behind Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch.
