NFL Notes: Reggie Wayne, Bills, Chiefs, Patriots, & Texans


Reggie Wayne


Bills DT Marcell Dareus mentioned that he wants to in Buffalo for the foreseeable future.

“We all know how I feel. We all know how the team feels,” Dareus said to Tyler Dunne of the Buffalo News. “I want to be a part of the Buffalo Bills. I want to be a part of the history we’re going to make here. But at the same time, it’s a business and we have to go through negotiations just like anybody else in any other career. So we just try to do what we can and move forward.

Dareus added that he’s willing to sign a franchise tender if the two parties aren’t able to reach an agreement on a long-term deal.

“If that’s something they consider, there’s not really much I can do,” Dareus said. “I’ll sign the paper.”


Chiefs HC Andy Reid said that injured NT Dontari Poe has “made big strides” in his return from back surgery.

I can just tell he’s at least on schedule if not a little bit ahead,” Reid said, via “He’s had a great attitude with the whole thing.

“He says he’s going to play in the first game. I go, ‘OK, all right, we’ll see,'” added Reid. “Then the doctors have to evaluate him. That’s really the thing — the time and how it’s healing. That’s up to the docs.

Texans HC Bill O’Brien mentioned that they plan to increase former No. 1 overall pick OLB Jadeveon Clowney‘s workload this week in practice.

“We’ll do a little bit more with him in practice,” O’Brien said, via the Houston Chronicle. “I’ve been pleased with the way he has reacted and practiced with the plan that we’ve had for him so far. He’s eager to get out there. One of the good signs with him is that he’ll come up to us and say, ‘Can I do more? I’d like to be in that drill,’ because he sees the competition and he’d like to be in more, but we have to stick to the medical plan. I’m definitely pleased with how he’s approached it so far.
