THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
August 1, 1981 — 6,000 FANS COME TO FIRST SCRIMMAGE AT FREDONIA
A crowd of about 6,000 came to Fredonia to watch the Bills beat the Packers 12-6 in a scrimmage.

QUOTE FOR THE DAY
Linebacker Nick Barnett on landing in Buffalo – “They called me up to come on a visit and I was skeptical at first having never been here before. My buddy Dwan Edwards told me this was a pretty nice place, so I came up. The coaching staff was great. The players were great. Everyone seemed like a family here. They pray after every practice. I love that. The numbers and the years just worked out perfectly.”

Bills QB/WR Brad Smith can’t practice yet due to NFL rules, but that didn’t stop him from signing autographs after the team’s first night practice.
