The Bills back in Orchard Park prepping for Saturday's preseason game against the Redskins. The team announced Thursday that safety Jairus Byrd will travel with the club to Washington. Byrd signed his franchise tender this week after sitting out all of training camp in a contract dispute.
Some big decisions still to be made as far as who makes the team at the wide receiver position. Perhaps a forgotten man in the mix - Marcus Easley. A fourth-round pick back in 2010, he's struggled to make an impact and stay on the field. But this year he's trying to change that and has teammates taking notice.
"He’s made a heck of a turnout this camp. He has turned a lot of heads," quarterback Kevin Kolb said. "Does nothing but catch balls and make plays in the games. Really, I think when it comes down to this time, unfortunately people count numbers a little bit. It’s a very competitive receiver group. The funny thing is we said this in OTAs and they’ve all come out and they’ve all battled. And there’s not one guy you can hand it to. They’ve all worked really hard."
