QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Bills defensive end Dwan Edwards on why he started his free football camp, which will be held July 9 in his home state of Montana (quote from an article in the Billings Gazette)– “I just think that it’s important to give back. I’ve been blessed by just having the support of so many people growing up, whether it’s my friends, my family or just the people that watched me play.  All it takes is someone to tell you that you can do it. Tell you some of the things that might help you be successful. Some people just take it and run with it.”

NOTES AND NUMBERS
Uniform Fact of the Day
In 1986, the team added the initials “PJM” to the front of their helmets above the facemask in memory of long-time team executive Patrick McGroeder, who passed away in February of that year.
