Favorite had a tough go

Posted by Chris Brown on May 11, 2010 – 4:39 pm

The Bills first of two roster moves coming out of their rookie minicamp was to waive DL Marlon Favorite. Viewed as a possible nose tackle candidate, Favorite was kicked out to right defensive end in the minicamp.

Favorite at 6’1″ and 317 is too squatty to play end in a 3-4 and is not a good match in space. He is best standing inside and grinding. But the Bills likely feel they have enough of those candidates in Kyle Williams, Torell Troup and Lonnie Harvey.

Rashaad Duncan might also be part of that mix, although he saw most of his time at defensive end as well in the 3-4 over the weekend.

New DT is added competition

Posted by Chris Brown on March 2, 2010 – 5:28 pm

DT Marlon Favorite might not be a household name, but he adds to the competition at a spot that’s thin right now.

Favorite actually was on the Panthers roster last summer at the same time as another defensive tackle on Buffalo’s roster, Lonnie Harvey. Harvey was on the Bills practice squad last year. Harvey (342) carries a bit more bulk than Favorite (317). Both of them will now be competing against one another as the Bills look for alternatives and depth for their all important nose tackle position.
