Bills open minicamp, visited by QB, re-sign DE

The first day of a short three day minicamp under new head coach Mike Mularkey had a few surprises. The biggest among them was the appearance of QB Kordell Stewart.

The Buffalo Bills are looking for a backup QB. Kordell Stewart is looking for a team. Might the two find one another? As Stewart has a history under current Bills GM Tom Donahoe, head coach Mike Mularkey and offensive co-ordinator Tom Clements. All of them came to Buffalo via Pittsburgh. Donahoe first drafted Stewart in 1994 from the University of Colorado, Mularkey was credited for helping shape him in Pittsburgh and Clements was his QB coach. Might a reunion be in store for everyone involved?

Time will tell but the former Steeler and Chicago Bear is also being pursued by the CFL's Winnipeg Bombers.

Also making headlines was the return of Keith McKenzie. McKenzie signed with the Bills last season but saw limited game action last year playing in only 6 games. Yet most of it came toward the end of it which may mean he's earned a chance to see significantly more playing time with the team in 2004.

Other things seen in camp were Willis McGahee at RB which is a welcome sign for the Bills top pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. As he missed the entire 2003 season recooperating from an injury he sustained while in college.

In the race to long time mainstay Ruben Brown, Marques Sullivan worked out as the team's starting left guard with the first team.
