Bills owner Terry Pegula on hardest part of being owner since 2014: "I think the hardest part has been our fans not having a winner. It's very difficult. We're not happy with what we've been doing on the field. We need to get better. We're going to work harder, and the whole organization is behind that philosophy: work harder, day by day, week by week, Sunday by Sunday and just try to get better."

Would Terry Pegula be open to building a new Bills stadium without public money? "Let me make it clear that when I bought the Bills, I don't want to be talking about a stadium for the next nine years. So I haven't thought about any of that stuff."

Asked if NFL has told Bills they need new stadium, owner Terry Pegula says, "That hasn't been discussed in any kind of detail. Everybody knows we're new owners. We're a smaller market in the league, so we just need to be happy with what we have right now in our stadium and call it home."

Bills owner Terry Pegula on future of New Era Field: "[New York] state just got through with a rather expensive renovation on the stadium.

Marcus Mariota told KHON in Hawaii his brother, Oregon tight end Matt Mariota, has been a key piece of his rehabilitation. "He's been special for me, just because whether it was me throwing passes on a scooter or just hanging out he was always kind of there for me during this process. That relationship that I have with my brother is something that is pretty special. I'm excited for him as he continues his journey. They start spring ball soon. He's put a lot of good work, a lot of hard work into it and I hope it all works out for him."

Bills owner Terry Pegula says coach Sean McDermott and GM Doug Whaley "work well together" and adds that selecting No. 10 overall pick in next month's draft will be a "group effort."

Jimbo Fisher said he wouldn't want his underclassmen working out at pro day if it came in the middle of spring camp. He said it's not good for the team or player, who wouldn't be in combine shape and could be injured from practice. Fisher was one of the loudest advocates for a junior combine, but he wants it to happen in late April or May. A recent rule change allows programs to have up to five rising juniors perform at pro day. Florida State has several rising juniors who could be high picks, including Derwin James, who is considered a 2018 first-round lock.

It would be "very rare," Blandino said, to have a situation with four or more challenges underway at the same time.
