Posted by Bills Daily Charge on September 4, 2012 – 9:47 am


DAILY REPORT

–Former Bills WR James Lofton will take part in the NFL’s PLAY 60 Youth Football Festival during Kickoff Week in New York City. More than 600 local children will learn football skills, combine drills, and healthy habits as part of PLAY 60 Kickoff Celebration.

–The Buffalo Bills announced yesterday that the team has signed CB T.J. Heath and TE LaMark Brown to the Practice Squad. Heath signed with Jacksonville as an undrafted free agent in 2011, and appeared in five games with the Jaguars. Brown entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Atlanta following the 2012 NFL Draft and was released on August 31st.

THIS DAY IN BILLS HISTORY
September 4, 1985 — McGRODER JOINS WALL OF FAME
The Bills announced that Patrick McGroder would join O.J. Simpson and Jack Kemp on the Wall of Fame. The team also said rookies Andre Reed and Bruce Smith would start the season opener against San Diego, as would QB Vince Ferragamo.

QUOTE OF THE DAY
Bills Wide Receiver Stevie Johnson
On squaring off against a division rival in Week One:
“It is a division opponent so I guess that gives the extra urge to come out on top. If it was non-division it would still be big because it is kick-off but this is our division opponent. We will see them later on, who knows, we may see them for a spot in the playoffs. This is big for both of us.”
