BUFFALO, N.Y. – The Bills can go ahead and begin their search for a potential new home in the Buffalo area after naming seven appointees to what’s called “A New Stadium Working Group.”
Bills president Russ Brandon and U.S. Senator Charles Schumer were among the appointees announced Thursday in a move that came two days after team owner Ralph Wilson died. The Bills appointees were the final ones added to what will be a 19-member group made up of public and private leaders.
The Miami Dolphins have reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract with former Broncos running back Knowshon Moreno. The team did not confirm the move, but multiple media outlets reported the deal to be worth about $3 million for the 2014 season. Moreno broke out for career-highs in nearly every category last season, racking up 1,038 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground while adding 60 catches for 548 yards and three scores in 16 games, all but one as Denver’s starting running back.
Patriots nose tackle Vince Wilfork says he’s closer to achieving his goal of finishing his career with New England. The 10-year veteran who missed most of last season with a torn Achilles’ tendon has tweeted that he looks forward to returning to football and helping his team have a chance to win a Super Bowl. Wilfork originally had balked at the Patriots attempt to restructure his contract to lessen the salary cap hit.
Mark Sanchez does not turn 28 until November. Presuming he avoids serious injuries, he has ample time to prove he can still be a viable NFL starting quarterback.
He has not looked like one for some time — and might not have a chance to in the immediate future. But the rebuilding of Sanchez’s career, if it is to occur, needed to begin somewhere.
