QUOTES OF THE DAY
DE Mark Anderson
On what Bills players he talked to during his visit:
“I talked to Mario (Williams). He and I have a pretty good relationship. And I talked to Nick Barnett as well. I’ve met him over the years and I’ve been watching him play as well. Those are the only two guys mainly. Just watching film when I was with other teams and we were watching everybody, going against other teams, I’ve seen everything that they (Bills) were doing and I just want to be a part of that. I felt like it’s something that I want to be a part of. Everybody works hard and that’s something that I pride myself on.”

DT Kyle Williams
On his impressions of how the off season is going so far for Buffalo and how things look for the future:
“I think with Buddy Nix and Coach Gailey and Coach Wannstedt; they’ve gone on and identified spots where they’ve felt like we needed to get better. Moving into a new defense, add some top level talent, add some depth and do some different things. I think it’s all about winning I think that’s all you can say about it. I think it’s all about winning at this point and those guys are going to help us do it.”

THIS DAY IN NFL HISTORY
March 22, 1994 — NFL APPROVES RULES CHANGES TO INCREASE SCORING
At the annual league meetings in Orlando, Fla., the owners approved a number of rules changes designed to increase offensive production. The two-point conversion was adopted for the first time in league history and kickoffs were moved back to the 30-yard line.
