And they will have another night practice tonight Joseph what's going out of what beautiful weather out there again Good afternoon up another another good one here may be some chance of rain at some point today but you know it's it's a good day so far. Joseph before I ask you about the bills did you know they. Giant it eaters could kill you because we just read a story that you waters of Brazil or killed by giant ant eaters did you have any idea that it eaters could do this. From Yahoo! News Joan V mills at practice last night and Fred Jackson. Was hurt and we all work had a holding our breath. Last night overnight should take Tim Graham tweeted that it appears OK you backed up that report sense of that coming here this morning do you tell us anything more. No nothing nothing in addition to just that. It he is okay him and it doesn't appear like it'll BL a long term anything I don't know that that he'll practice today then he might he might not but. And it seems to the way that they looked at and everything it he should be good to go with in the next few days here how. Many reps has he been getting though it's interesting to me with the running back dynamic talk about a guy and Fred Jackson let's face it he's not a spring chicken anymore we all know what he's done for this organization but. They did go out and sign running backs who they are gonna try and use in this offense especially obviously but even that he Dixon how has that been going for Fred as far as how many reps he's getting him where he fits in in this running backs. Generation what the running back reps are weird because it it's like every two snaps there's a new guy in there so it is not really. Hey this guys getting first team snaps disguised in second team snapped it's just. That's one of those positions where hey you're fresh your body get in there and and that's basically what it's what it boiled down to I think. The bigger test will be in the pre season when they start to actually devote time to some of these guys to develop them. I don't know that that can be seen in the hall of fame game next Sunday. But I do think that will start to see it in the second third maybe even for pre season games. Jeremy is out of saint John Fisher tonight they'll have another night practice 6 o'clock tonight you do need a ticket to get in it is already sold out but. Hey there's a lot of people out there I've I've seen these practices that have some tickets wanna go out there and you know Trier hander many contacts somebody's going out there you might be able to get one what you do need a ticket. To get in tonight CJ Spiller Bryce Brown they seem to be two guys that kind of bring the same skill set speaking the running backs but Joseph I gotta be honest. I am really impressed with Bryce Brown I mean every time I've gone out to practice this he is a player. Yes he is and I think he brings a little bit more power than CJ Spiller dozen I think he's kind of he's not as explosive as Spiller. But he's also he also brings that power aspect so the the kind of found a guy that has sort of melded. What Fred Jackson does and CJ Spiller does although not as good as either of those guys in that capacity at the physicality vs the explosiveness. But he can actually he can do a little bit of So I I think he's a good player I've also been pretty impressed by Anthony Dixon so far in training camp he's a lot. Quicker than I thought he would be and he's running hard in and pop in pads with peoples so that running back group. Well are aware they thought. Last year at that all they had on the roster with CJ Spiller projection. Of one of them got hurt which one of them did for quite good about time. Then maybe they were screwed the president right they went to Tashard Choice they didn't like him they went down to running window they gave him one Kerry decided now we're good. And and so they went out in the offseason they addressed it in neglect. Joseph the wide receiver position has good battle going on the last couple of spots commute McDonald what you've seen from guys early Ottawa's Chris Hogan that looked. Really good in that rolled over from OTA's and mini camp. I noticed Kevin Elliott a little bit lately every time out there I think he's making some plays but it kind of breakdown we've seen from these guys up there at the bottom half. big and he gets separation. But he needs to. Focus and catch the ball and I mean I I think the same thing of him I think he has a lot of potential but he needs to catch the ball a more consistent rate that's his biggest enemy right now. Chris Hogan who you brought up heat to me. It is as good of a bat as anyone and that in that little wide receiver bubbled to probably make the roster at this point right now I think. He's consistent he can contribute offense and special teams got good hands good route running. Good speed I I think he has has really the the inside track to get one of those two or three spots at at the bottom of the roster. TJ Graham needs to catch the ball that's I mean he he I used by him and then. flies by quarterback and then drops the ball. And it's very concerning because he doesn't bring any special teams to the table so there's that Marcus dropped a couple passes yesterday one went right through his hands. literally right through them as he tries that as he tried to hand to catch it. But in so but he brings that special teams aspect as well so at least he has a redeeming quality. Other than that at a younger guy that kinda has. Maybe you raised a couple of eyebrows holly who's on the bottom of the roster he's made some nice plays throughout training camp but I would I would put him has a long shot more than anything. Yeah and Sammy Watkins finally dropped the best yesterday dropped one pass because this has been amazing. He'd drop war in the Ian. OTA OK it that way when we're actually counting in trying to figure it out that's a good sign I think. Deploy that I don't know that he dropped the and I'm thinking of or broken up OK okay I I read somewhere I think it's. Pet a slant pattern might have gotten into his chest and he didn't hang on. All cabinets at the perplexed how there was one play where lock it over the middle he's about fifteen yards down the field. And Russ Cochran was right in his hip pocket and it's Amy tried to catch it with with hands and extend for. pin and knocked the ball loose which is pretty impressive because Amy doesn't usually. Let those go. Joey and I've talked about for more than a year now and talking about how good he is in what I was his college career Clemson and how good of a pro he could be I've watched it play for the last six years of his young life he's been as good as advertised safari camp has. He has but it's still to be determined what he'll be in the NFL because there's a couple of key factors that one and he's not going up against. But at the opposing team just yet and do we don't know how they're going to utilize him with EJ Manuel as has cornerback. I like Jamie Hawkins a whole lot I think keep him he has all pro potential. But it all matters with the situation you were placed him and real EG game you'll be able to take advantage of Sammy Watkins enough will be design enough. Unique things were for him to make an impact each and every week because. Let's let's not forget I mean how can you for being traded their first round pick next year to get this guy. You better devote a good portion of your game plan tonight giving him the ball. And making sure he's playmaker take your team over yet though I think I think this is a big big responsibility that the bills after. Really take into consideration. Really utilize him as best they can. Joseph the scale is with me if you wanna jump of any questions he is at saint John Fisher right now I am in grammar studios here at WGR but you can call 8030550. Or 888. By fifty to 550 is there anything at all. All new on the forty Glenn's situation. Nothing new. I got nothing I mean Ollie hears rumors but nothing and often right right right what four. OK so. The reason why Doug says I've been advised not to talk about it can we surmise because it's a medical issue and our losses with those things because that's what it seems like saying because in general the when the guys have injuries. They'll say like let's away puritan upper body or some that we are getting anything here. The bills would be in trouble if right they were to give out medical information on one of their players. I believe it's hit us and one of the if if they were to say hey you know what this guy suffer from nice to some. He and he would get themselves in meet your major way here and and that that could open themselves up to a lawsuit potentially it's it's just. It's in their best interest to not say anything or even given hints of anything about about what Portland is going through because really. While it's driving people in saying that he's he's not on the field and there's no answers being given at this point. I mean they have to respect the laws and they have to respect his privacy and we heard. Originally a week ago it more they would have willow said we think it's more of a day to day thing well here we are now. It's been over all week he is still not on the field the correct me if I'm wrong. He is still doing like some sort of light exercise. Or training work on the with the trainers. Near the field correct. Yet to play devil's advocate they they called Chris Hairston data de ya ever collaborative training camp last year and he was doing the same amount of work right. Honestly the I don't know what the chances are that there they are suffering from the same thing or are suffering from something. That taking him out of the equation for a long period of time. It's just a wait and see approach and and it was driving people mad because you go to practice and watch on trial Anderson just. Collapsing when Jerry Hughes is rushing at him but. You know what that's that's part of the game and and if they can't clear courting glad right now then and then they're gonna have to wait forum. And it is measures Joseph Henderson is that they plan right now who has that at left tackle and how they looked in courting Glenn's absence is. And John drill Anderson all first team reps at left tackle he's even getting that some third team reps at left tackle. And the back up at left tackle right now is you don't Kaufman but shot drill Henderson. Going up against use I mean he's got good feet he's got good length. But he doesn't he's not exactly technically sound just yet has all the potential you can walk. And Jerry Hughes is taking advantage of them. There's an outside in move that poll them on trial Anderson I don't even think he initiated contact with elect tackle he was by him on the inside it was. It did not there was not a good look for shock trauma Alan Branch also had some sort of medical issue he was dealing with he returned now we was at practice yesterday correct Alan Branch is that yes while heat. Failed his conditioning get up to condemn okay that's what Israel what it was going to be he was on the non football illness list though because. It was explained to me that it's something that something showed up on his medical past that like that they needed to test for further. And so they put him on a non football illness list initially and any that was conditioning test the the tests on what you're looking for from a medical perspective. All came back clear but he was on and on the poll this list and that's Okay thank you for clearing that up and that makes more sense because it appeared as though him in kind of one in the same where there are going through something but now we know that. What the situation was there. Speaking of the conditioning test obviously would Marcel Darius he reports the Terry Kinney field is conditioning test Italy for day we know why now we took care of some legal matters down in Alabama said from the beginning about Marcel that. Get them here just get them here and he should be OK I mean he's got to come early enough time to practice and meetings we know what happened last year but. Getting here getting away from people that don't best interest in mind he's now here so now he's on the practice what have you seen from him and does he seem like he's gonna be committed to this football team. Well I think it's it's premature to speak on the latter because it's all about. Now what you say it's. About what you do over a long period of time but what he's done on the field I mean he came right in him and had a pretty good date for his first date back. There's one play where he peers decide in in god and EJ Manuel and and manuals kind of rolling to his right. Marshall arias didn't mean to but he he collided with little bit and put his hands and needed immediate by the Darius who was it was taking first team reps yesterday and they know he's a big part of the team he knows he's a big part of the team and it's on him to be able to show that he is committed all the way through this season now this is the easy part. You look at training camp. You have all of your peers sleeping in the next right I mean you're not gonna be late for anything they are going to await your bought up. That's real test is during the season Wendy's in his own place. No ones no ones and your and it's on him to set that alarm wake up. And and go through routine to get himself to to get to the facilities on time each and every time so it this is easy right now. It's really good point for the phone lines built an LP Billy was Kelly go ahead buddy. I show that the op practice eventually and I facility that it they have on the and the couple questions one does not cover our quarterback Emanuel I look at. A look at what court and I look at how like lecture or less like carefree. Just look like you've got to focus it's strong passes and no well you got wide open receivers that are. Thirty years now the fuel and misses but by. No it's. Great because it just seems like here like Charlotte or here he cares less. Or doesn't like hey. A little different like. An immediate need to actually don't need he's got to be more accurate and actress really bad. I had another question or else group that another question twirling that one comment was. I don't know how well. A lot into that at duke because certainly. Receivers too as well as a quarterback. And I mean this category you can see it occurred here. It's yeah all these various equality act in stride. As marks and I can be a little bit of all I'm and I had a lot of question. Here this air world saying. Our view is. Quarterly supplies about like and what. He had no idea about his maturity isn't that something could say about a coach at. Coming into their first round draft choice he didn't know much about the cute personality maturity. Now why why why why why what do you know so much about it I mean he's he's actions does the coach have compared to the scouting staff and general manager right Greg Yeah I think. He talks with him throughout the process and obviously a lot of these guys are on the past behavior put. I think what is speaking to is more of the work ethic. And just going through the paces now Not really being a guy that. It is a look at me look at me type of person he's he just goes about his work comes into the building earlier sleeps late and everything like that that's that's the maturity I think is talking about four. A guy who just turned 41 years old. I did he can talk with a bunch of coaches and I'm sure they probably did about their maturity and and what they elected off the field but. All the same don't give a great clinched until you have him there in person the EJ Manuel point that you need. It was a bit of an over exaggeration he's not missing receivers but it. He's missing them by right to work three maybe sometimes 45 but it's not. twenty yards but I will agree with the caller that. The footwork is something that is an on going issue that is leading to the accuracy Daniel Jeremiah who works for the NFL network NFL he's a former scout. He was tweeting while he was at practice yesterday tweeting along with the with the practice and and it basically said to the same effect EG manuals footwork is a work in progress. So that's going to be one of the biggest issues for EJ Manuel to help himself get to a level. Where he is where he's able to hit these past has consistently because those are one of my major critiques. Being consistent in heating there was intermediate routes in not being so. All over the place low a little bit. To a little bit behind him in stride and and you can make so much more of your office but he's not doing that then. And they're gonna struggle. about the linebacker rotation you wrote about that to BGR Tom can you tell our audience know what happened at practice yesterday there basically it was five guys that were getting first team reps throughout practiced yesterday before. Yesterday's practice. All we release saw. Was Brandon Spikes getting the middle. And Nigel Brad on the weak side in Keith Rivers on the strong side. Well they decided to give a little bit more rats a couple of other guys though one which was kind of obvious the rookie third round pick Preston brown. He took some reps with the first team. And the surprise one is a god has even been on the roster for two weeks Stevenson Sylvester they just picked up as a free agent. He was getting some first team reps as well what they were essentially doing. They were there and some. 335. they were doing isn't as some nickel looks and what they were doing is they were giving time. To each one of the guys outside of spikes who stayed. In the middle the entire time when he was out there but they were giving some time to random rivers Sylvester and brown. And weak side strong side middle and just trying to cross train the model three positions which are Smart. Really interesting how that's gonna shake up shape up with the loss of Kiko Alonso. But as we said from the beginning in now you know. Kyle Williams said this on summer we show this week. It it if there's a silver lining in the Kiko Alonso injury jealous of the fact that didn't get these guys it and I know what you have you're not doing it two weeks in this. You know the season we have to throw everything together at least they have that time to valley which obviously that's what's going on especially on these off days with England right. Oh for sure and I think that was probably a good reason why Stevenson Sylvester ended up getting some first team reps yesterday. They just wanted to see if he could perform at the same level in against the first team offense and and go from there. So this is in. In ever evolving competition we don't know who's going to come out the winner what we do know with Brandon Spikes will be middle linebacker on an obvious run down. We know Keith Rivers will be out on the field in some capacity whether it's weak side strong side we don't know yet. And then somebody whether it's Brad Adam brown or Sylvester will be out there is the third line to take it to help. Be alongside Keith Rivers when there are indeed the nickel looks and things like that. I was going to ask you about eight player but a caller named Bobby. He has the same player in my all it can steal my thunder Bobby you're much ahead It basically lock our parties involved in the audience and not at all loud you know opinions. I just wanted to and our respect your opinion what do you know about only Moriarty. Our people and it for precious and as well as Egypt may well. Which is. Like manipulation. is decent like that keep track of our you know like and intellect and pat. I'm IE eight dug a little starters out like Canadians are guessing what does campers and actually about that. Yeah with manual dress that perceived as pat the ball he signs and in some times that it gets into his panel bay and gets to a patient and settling for for a dumped down to running back or tight or something in that sense that he's got to get over. I mean he have to learn how to get off his first read go to his second. In in look all around the field to find his guy around the just settling for the that's. That's also an issue besides the accuracy. Now we the other part of it Tony yeah hockey. He has. The most athletic schism of the top three which I believe power Scott at least Smith and oh yeah hockey is most at a lot of schism the most natural receiving ability. He doesn't have as much height as as Scott Chandler. But you know he's probably the better receiver in my opinion however. He injured his hamstring yesterday we don't know the severity just yet we don't know if he'll be out at practice today but it was it was something that. Kept him from finishing practice and he went in the locker prematurely. Yet to name only Jacqui just has an innocent healthy his whole career seems to go in he's had a productive couple seasons for Kansas City but. That's been not only the story of his pro career. But the story of his career at Iowa as well he suffered so my interest throughout his career. I'm late to the but they're too. Issues in opposition they just got to get you real quick as I I haven't really. Heard a lot about these and even pay attention to tell me what's happening for the safety position with a rotation is. And that is there kicking battle going because let's remember they saw Dustin Hopkins on the roster and re sign it carpenter. Yeah nothing to report on either because it's at this point it's been an open and shut case. At safety and sorcerer's he has taken every single rep at the strong safety with the first He's always played along Eric Williams duke Williams and Jonathan the second team CDs though there hasn't been any competition here there just yet. And for the kicking mail that is our audio. Doug Murrow said the other day that the only way Dustin Hopkins is going to make this roster is as we kick off specialist and to prove that point further. Three out of the five practices so far they've done some field goal kicking. Justin Hopkins had 22 attempts I'm the interpreter has had 22 attempts Justin Hopkins has had to. Carpenter's 21 point opposite to do so that competition is Null and that set. That is over it is over right about that Joseph thanks man appreciate it coming out and had a great afternoon out there enjoy the weather and of course we'll look forty reports tonight to be GR five did not come in on Twitter at Joseph was Kelly thanks god thank much they'll talk to next I that is he's out at saint John night practice tonight 6 o'clock in the meantime.

Rankles hill joins me right now I'm Bryan little known fact in a revealed to the world right now. It was between Maximilian and Rory for my son's name we think about that. The. You like that now. Hey Brian you are really low RE a phone line here is on the we we may judge you call back Brian because I can hardly hear you very faint so we can do that unhappy hang up call back hill which got a different lines let's do that we'll hook up with top ranked cozy on the meantime.

Complete coverage next week let's say about that a second but first of all who have out at the Porter cup. He will talk about the leaderboard out there and everything that's going on out the Porter cup at Niagara Falls country club. In the meantime. As I bring Brian back on the line we've very really cool. Announcement to tell you about. And that is we already told you next Saturday night for the hall of fame. Next Saturday night for the hall of fame night and the induction ceremonies. We are gonna be live from Fawcett stadium right and I will be starting at 5 o'clock on Saturday he'll get a full two hours of coverage right here and GR. Andre reed and everybody else but especially you know focusing on Andre in buffalo and all that stuff that will obviously have the podium. And the speeches from everybody's going in. I'm drain Willy comes in Michael Strahan. Claude Humphrey. I am am I know missing a couple of guys there'd be a top my head but where have all that for you on Saturday night obviously. But before that but before that what's gonna be really cool is on Friday night on Friday night Friday afternoon I should say. the bulldogs are gonna be taking a well deserved rest and Brian and I will be sitting in for them posting drive time Friday night and we will be yet. From Cleveland why Cleveland. Because will be better way to can't be got to go to for the hall of fame and will be in Cleveland on Friday night. So Bebo didn't have to change the actual initial Scotia open bowl order Essen beat okay Brian I mean I I guess I'm self serving put myself by saying this first but. C show opened below sound right kind of works like that the bride to be really cool time we have back on the line right now but. Next week drive time you knew from Cleveland or have a great time and Saturday night helping coverage I'm looking forward to it. Should be a great time it though it is a fun time to get together to go to and I look at Florida know you haven't been they're all being ceremony before and I'm excited to share indicative of the cool experience luckily I've got to do a lot with the Asian. Though it should be good and Andre go and while there ought to talk about Camelot. Yes can be really fun so Friday night once again folks really Brian and I instead of the Bulldog here they're gonna take a nice. Well deserved break next Friday night and we're gonna head Kent Ohio and on the way there will take a stopping Cleveland will host their show. Then we'll have Saturday night full coverage starting at 5 o'clock here and to GR Bogut out of the podium we'll have injuries a to stuff coming your way and that of course on Sunday. All the pregame coverage that you're gonna need right here and BGR in the bills' kick off the hall of fame game and pre season. Against the New York Giants it's incredible that cigarettes here right before we get the golf quick ask your thoughts on. Hearing that Jim Kelly is going to be an honorary captain did and and the coin toss going to what he's going through this is really great news for everybody. And it should be a pretty moving moment I would get it and you know even if you're not they're gonna make for great TV great radio here yet. Should be quite a period tell there I'm guessing what the fact that the majority of the It's obviously going to be and a one of the in the game at that time. Would probably beat and a lot of the Buffalo Bills fans. I'm guessing it'll be maybe a lot of moment of the night when eat out there are getting used to calling taught that should be great But you yeah you're gonna have haltingly and yet but you swept up. In. It could be a part of history of football and they're great they're going in that we can you become a I know it's over like you become a fan of football and the appreciation for the game more after going to happen. I'm not that you're not always got to number one for the build a you know Akeelah eroding support but. That weekend. Is more of like your fan of football and become more beloved at EI you know every cut my daughter learn more about the to walk of so. The great weekend telling moment with the quite thought think going to be phenomenal. It's going to be awesome. The last time Jim Kelly when Jim inducted I should say. That's the reason that they the ceremony right that's what you're telling me I didn't realize that that that was the cause. Of the ceremony actually be moved inside the stadium tells about it. Yeah beating here last week we're talking about they used to always have the ceremony on the steps outside. All of the hall of fame in an Ohio and it would be fine even for when they had what they considered to be larger crowd of you know maybe a thousand or so people putting any accommodation for outside the steps they would set up and but. Normally the ceremonies that it'll be taken place between I'm guessing you know hundreds of people may be a 1015100. Thing like that well. Kelly week and we didn't alleyway and and obviously the first bill to go in and forever. There was such a large contingent of bills fans calming. And buying and wanting to be a part of that ceremony that the people can't or essentially here all that they wouldn't be able to. Safely hold it. Anywhere near the steps so they decided to do it in the stadium for the first time ever. And with the crowd going even beyond. What was expected go to Oregon and one of the representatives from the pro football being called that time we get our shell or the other and he said that they expected. Their biggest crowd ever somewhere like in six to 7000 range and then went 141000. People showed up from buffalo. But it ceremony. They it would insane and that they said had they done on the steps it would have been the maps would afterward and say I felt they moved into the stadium. As the NFL does that make it bigger and better all the time and now they turned it into this grand don't show it in that stadium ever sent Push to move it into this stadium was because of buffalo people traveling to ceremony. Bryant as someone who's been out there I promise we'll get to golf and among folks are picked Porter going out right it's also about it but a lot of people are going to the whole thing they have the tickets for the game at the ceremony. Somebody leaky vent their a few times. What should they basically do RT literary when should they arrive which they expect as far as you're getting there early enough maybe seeing the hall of fame how should. plan that weekend if they're going for the first time. Well I think obviously there at all of the key part of it if you're coming for the weekend are at the right. Halting ceremony with Andre in the the going into Saturday night. And in the game Sunday night it here I'm guessing maybe a lot of fans they're gonna leave on first thing on Saturday morning. You wanna get yourself. A decent amount of time to get yourself into the stadium and I got my thought would be. Is that Saturday afternoon if you're there early at the under go through the now they have updated wait. Weighing all the time it had a head like I called their feature. Area that every year that's a new part of all payment then of course there's a part that show. All the busts through every that are always there but other constantly updating that I've been there. It's so laughable to go in which is Ralph well consumption will be the new things America. But you wanna go to policy because it definitely something that. Even down to just some of the cool old school stuff with the uniformed evolving to the team displayed all it's sort of stop. And each time a more hands on I think everything's great he wanna replicate that out on Saturday night. There are going to be in the kitten Akron area. Sports bar filled with built fans felt fine you can and it'll be eating your view if you actually want to talk. With player and up. This is probably about access he'll ever have all gamers walking around in the stadium here all the time so you get there early enough. You hold the ball into you Michael really early. On Friday night. They have an enshrine their dinner. Even can't get in the I'll that you can buy tickets or and I know that there's information on and what's good about that but at the really cool ceremony. On two times ago. When Bruce McLennan. I got a chance to go to that and that was pretty neat because that and actually physically get to Wear that jacket. Is that night. And that the speaker that you know again you wanna live it up you can buy tickets at a dinner and have it all the other thing you can do I know in the area. That we can. I know you're I had Saturday a a little PGA golf the PGA golf and the World Golf Championships in Akron and then it. Nor that you're looking for somebody Saturday morning or Sunday morning that there. That you wanna go watch some golf in the morning that they too but got probably a little bit here of like. Restaurant. And did you almost majors and in which is about maybe it Keener now. Right you join me here on the BJR Brian what's going out the Porter cup today is the number three obviously so was today that they are days they were that's I'm sorry I knew today I just think it's Saturday but it is the final round right. Yet normally Saturday you think robbery but it is the Porter cup though it meters Saturday event. And the leaders just teed off about a half or belt Jeff expert entered the three shot lead. And at the moment nobody that on the course and really caught the best player on the court right now. Crenshaw. Has gotten a couple under par no relation to except about that you'd think it would be but eat up to minus four but. A couple of players keep an eye on Gavin hall lot of Pittsburgh New York buying it yet. Who played that the universe access to actually tied for the lead at the US open an eighteen year old Olympic years ago. also expect the second last group I think that the coolest group to go watch you're gonna go out. This afternoon that grouping there what about hot where at all. Arab there was with Trevor Wilmington within that view of woman in Rochester there in the second last group and all in the third let you other big mean geographic today. After the date read back of expert who hit the ball I'll. A pretty healthy either. The guys that are chase and we're gonna have to shoot 85600. Are. In order to do it but they've got pretty good condition to do it today it's like the appear in Lewiston and a letter don't break. It's been a great. We weather right I mean it's really no problems all right. Now and they've had whether in the or the ways. But it's been about as perfect as they could have. The weather's been good for growing I know are the Rust Belt from one week immediate few weeks ago a lot longer. I didn't penalized if they admit screen but. Because we've had a lot of rain the greens are receptive so they hit good shots you're gonna eat well. It's a good scene there thirty some great crowd we're up there this morning four ball show from seven and nine and regarding some people following. The player including a thirteen year old will content. Youngest player ever to play in the Porter cup he 83 over on his round so far but. Like you sit there and look at. That side himself. And then you watch him hit the ball and I'm against you and almost twice size yet es gonna destroy scored it. Bryant I think the reason why the rough is bigger as we crushed it and we crushed it so much that's that we got to change this. Yeah they that if it's told deal I like to know August. Of course right it's a beautiful course other folks we are we time we always do that they're so nice to us up there at the Porter got this it's such great event she got up there if you haven't you're within shot in my voice and get up there to to data. To watch some of these kids play I should take kids to shut these men and kids you gotta go up there and do it. you go real quick. Out of these three people. Hey what do you think would be the best to get if we when we Cleveland NB who would bills fans wanna hear from the most I'll give you. LeBron James Johnny cell in Donte Whitner. Who. Who would build experience running an Everyman now. Yes right exactly and you think LeBron what ends they'll be more of the guiding you kind of want interview like let's LeBron really get talent. Would be a more memorable fun interview saying. To brag that I got a chance to interview LeBron James could be better you know an accent. But in terms of a what I think would be a better radio interview that we got to a lot of them I think it would be on a. would bills fans tune in which which one would most more fans to say OK I am not missing this I'm tuning in. You get that close Whitner obviously caused quite a stir with built them right. Yeah well that's where we need we need doctor Earl PD indie rock out there and see we get outs of the now. That's right help you get both the regardless whether we have either of them. We're gonna caught on a great interviewed on our show Saturday and with that all the former build it'll be there they're always so welcoming to talk Of course of course Jamar visit in given that he's introducing not all those guys will be there and wherever lots really cool stuff for everybody get Brian I'll be hosting partial to the Bulldog. Next Friday live from Cleveland on our way to can't on Saturday. In at 5 o'clock with your full local to our free you will coverage before. The induction ceremony Brian good job today Mann Porter cup coverage thank you for being out there to event we're glad that we have people like you around to argue that exposure. Bank's outlook reported that we can YouTube that is I got to take a quick timeout will come back one touch shot knock this. Marshawn Lynch holdout situation that's going I think it's ridiculous. And I'm actually not usually the guy that goes after players were wanting more reason I think there's a lot of risk that involved here players but what marsh on student. I made have to I I can't agree with and would not be very happy with at all that was one of the players in the Buffalo Bills. I quickly if I get to break Greg likens coming up here at 1 o'clock from insider radio down in Miami. And we're checking on dolphins can't because they have opened up give as well lots of pressure on right down there. Take his step in is year number three Marshawn Lynch is holding out of Seattle Seahawks camp. Marshawn Lynch two years ago signed a four year contract. And I'm not one of these people that reaches under the contract under the contract because teams don't honor contracts. Anytime you say under the contract. Let's remember teams he'd cut you at any time they don't on our contract guys sank three or four year deals if they can cut him after one year. there they're not honoring their side of the contract so I never say that about players either. Because I understand players wanted to renegotiate sometimes in. They want you trying to maximize their value we get as most money because there shelf lives are short in this league but the case Marshawn Lynch. Dude got paid seventeen million guaranteed in the first two years of four year deal. The team took the risk instead we'll give all your money up front and then we'll pay you another. Eleven million salary with bonuses equal fourteen million over the next two years not guaranteed. He took that two years he took their two million. I'm sorry they're seventeen million over two years seventeen million he took. To play for two years which was guaranteed hit a played last year to get the seventeen because it was fully guaranteed his first year salary. So that's how long it took to get that you know the the guaranteed money now they have cities like I'm not giving more guaranteed money at two years let them ideal. It's gonna hold out retire. This is this is the problem I have. It's not about not battery contract it's about hate the team took all the risk I for two years. And I your unwilling to take the risk the next two years and I get it there's a lot of risk I museum players' side and the stuff I really am. The man they paid him two years they seventeen million dollars guaranteed. And that was the that's the trade you take for taking a four year deal you get more money up front to have that security. Any now he's threatened a hold out. And the Seahawks are going through what many many champions go through in many sports they get good they're good players have to find a way to pay them guys get greedy guys want the money. Marshawn Lynch that's what he's doing Timmy it's that plays out. Also how does impact other running backs like CJ Spiller Jamaal Charles it's eighteen million dollars in new money. From the he says I want a new deal and hold out mean they blinked quit. They give a lot of money preposition that supposedly devalued now by the way around the league. Eighteen in new money for the next years to three years ago at the exact deals a lot of money though he got cash and this is gonna affect the market for running backs we almost CJ and are free agents at the end of the year. Greg likens insider radio coming up next we'll check in on dolphins camp.Welcome back to Debbie a pipe that this is sports talks Saturday I'm to watch Joba is out at saint John Fisher the bills any night practice last night. And they will have another night practice tonight Joseph what's going out of what beautiful weather out there again Good afternoon up another another good one here may be some chance of rain at some point today but you know it's it's a good day so far. Joseph before I ask you about the bills did you know they. Giant it eaters could kill you because we just read a story that you waters of Brazil or killed by giant ant eaters did you have any idea that it eaters could do this. From Yahoo! News Joan V mills at practice last night and Fred Jackson. Was hurt and we all work had a holding our breath. Last night overnight should take Tim Graham tweeted that it appears OK you backed up that report sense of that coming here this morning do you tell us anything more. No nothing nothing in addition to just that. It he is okay him and it doesn't appear like it'll BL a long term anything I don't know that that he'll practice today then he might he might not but. And it seems to the way that they looked at and everything it he should be good to go with in the next few days here how. Many reps has he been getting though it's interesting to me with the running back dynamic talk about a guy and Fred Jackson let's face it he's not a spring chicken anymore we all know what he's done for this organization but. They did go out and sign running backs who they are gonna try and use in this offense especially obviously but even that he Dixon how has that been going for Fred as far as how many reps he's getting him where he fits in in this running backs. Generation what the running back reps are weird because it it's like every two snaps there's a new guy in there so it is not really. Hey this guys getting first team snaps disguised in second team snapped it's just. That's one of those positions where hey you're fresh your body get in there and and that's basically what it's what it boiled down to I think. The bigger test will be in the pre season when they start to actually devote time to some of these guys to develop them. I don't know that that can be seen in the hall of fame game next Sunday. But I do think that will start to see it in the second third maybe even for pre season games. Jeremy is out of saint John Fisher tonight they'll have another night practice 6 o'clock tonight you do need a ticket to get in it is already sold out but. Hey there's a lot of people out there I've I've seen these practices that have some tickets wanna go out there and you know Trier hander many contacts somebody's going out there you might be able to get one what you do need a ticket. To get in tonight CJ Spiller Bryce Brown they seem to be two guys that kind of bring the same skill set speaking the running backs but Joseph I gotta be honest. I am really impressed with Bryce Brown I mean every time I've gone out to practice this he is a player. Yes he is and I think he brings a little bit more power than CJ Spiller dozen I think he's kind of he's not as explosive as Spiller. But he's also he also brings that power aspect so the the kind of found a guy that has sort of melded. What Fred Jackson does and CJ Spiller does although not as good as either of those guys in that capacity at the physicality vs the explosiveness. But he can actually he can do a little bit of So I I think he's a good player I've also been pretty impressed by Anthony Dixon so far in training camp he's a lot. Quicker than I thought he would be and he's running hard in and pop in pads with peoples so that running back group. Well are aware they thought. Last year at that all they had on the roster with CJ Spiller projection. Of one of them got hurt which one of them did for quite good about time. Then maybe they were screwed the president right they went to Tashard Choice they didn't like him they went down to running window they gave him one Kerry decided now we're good. And and so they went out in the offseason they addressed it in neglect. Joseph the wide receiver position has good battle going on the last couple of spots commute McDonald what you've seen from guys early Ottawa's Chris Hogan that looked. Really good in that rolled over from OTA's and mini camp. I noticed Kevin Elliott a little bit lately every time out there I think he's making some plays but it kind of breakdown we've seen from these guys up there at the bottom half. big and he gets separation. But he needs to. Focus and catch the ball and I mean I I think the same thing of him I think he has a lot of potential but he needs to catch the ball a more consistent rate that's his biggest enemy right now. Chris Hogan who you brought up heat to me. It is as good of a bat as anyone and that in that little wide receiver bubbled to probably make the roster at this point right now I think. He's consistent he can contribute offense and special teams got good hands good route running. Good speed I I think he has has really the the inside track to get one of those two or three spots at at the bottom of the roster. TJ Graham needs to catch the ball that's I mean he he I used by him and then. flies by quarterback and then drops the ball. And it's very concerning because he doesn't bring any special teams to the table so there's that Marcus dropped a couple passes yesterday one went right through his hands. literally right through them as he tries that as he tried to hand to catch it. But in so but he brings that special teams aspect as well so at least he has a redeeming quality. Other than that at a younger guy that kinda has. Maybe you raised a couple of eyebrows holly who's on the bottom of the roster he's made some nice plays throughout training camp but I would I would put him has a long shot more than anything. Yeah and Sammy Watkins finally dropped the best yesterday dropped one pass because this has been amazing. He'd drop war in the Ian. OTA OK it that way when we're actually counting in trying to figure it out that's a good sign I think. Deploy that I don't know that he dropped the and I'm thinking of or broken up OK okay I I read somewhere I think it's. Pet a slant pattern might have gotten into his chest and he didn't hang on. All cabinets at the perplexed how there was one play where lock it over the middle he's about fifteen yards down the field. And Russ Cochran was right in his hip pocket and it's Amy tried to catch it with with hands and extend for. pin and knocked the ball loose which is pretty impressive because Amy doesn't usually. Let those go. Joey and I've talked about for more than a year now and talking about how good he is in what I was his college career Clemson and how good of a pro he could be I've watched it play for the last six years of his young life he's been as good as advertised safari camp has. He has but it's still to be determined what he'll be in the NFL because there's a couple of key factors that one and he's not going up against. But at the opposing team just yet and do we don't know how they're going to utilize him with EJ Manuel as has cornerback. I like Jamie Hawkins a whole lot I think keep him he has all pro potential. But it all matters with the situation you were placed him and real EG game you'll be able to take advantage of Sammy Watkins enough will be design enough. Unique things were for him to make an impact each and every week because. Let's let's not forget I mean how can you for being traded their first round pick next year to get this guy. You better devote a good portion of your game plan tonight giving him the ball. And making sure he's playmaker take your team over yet though I think I think this is a big big responsibility that the bills after. Really take into consideration. Really utilize him as best they can. Joseph the scale is with me if you wanna jump of any questions he is at saint John Fisher right now I am in grammar studios here at WGR but you can call 8030550. Or 888. By fifty to 550 is there anything at all. All new on the forty Glenn's situation. Nothing new. I got nothing I mean Ollie hears rumors but nothing and often right right right what four. OK so. The reason why Doug says I've been advised not to talk about it can we surmise because it's a medical issue and our losses with those things because that's what it seems like saying because in general the when the guys have injuries. They'll say like let's away puritan upper body or some that we are getting anything here. The bills would be in trouble if right they were to give out medical information on one of their players. I believe it's hit us and one of the if if they were to say hey you know what this guy suffer from nice to some. He and he would get themselves in meet your major way here and and that that could open themselves up to a lawsuit potentially it's it's just. It's in their best interest to not say anything or even given hints of anything about about what Portland is going through because really. While it's driving people in saying that he's he's not on the field and there's no answers being given at this point. I mean they have to respect the laws and they have to respect his privacy and we heard. Originally a week ago it more they would have willow said we think it's more of a day to day thing well here we are now. It's been over all week he is still not on the field the correct me if I'm wrong. He is still doing like some sort of light exercise. Or training work on the with the trainers. Near the field correct. Yet to play devil's advocate they they called Chris Hairston data de ya ever collaborative training camp last year and he was doing the same amount of work right. Honestly the I don't know what the chances are that there they are suffering from the same thing or are suffering from something. That taking him out of the equation for a long period of time. It's just a wait and see approach and and it was driving people mad because you go to practice and watch on trial Anderson just. Collapsing when Jerry Hughes is rushing at him but. You know what that's that's part of the game and and if they can't clear courting glad right now then and then they're gonna have to wait forum. And it is measures Joseph Henderson is that they plan right now who has that at left tackle and how they looked in courting Glenn's absence is. And John drill Anderson all first team reps at left tackle he's even getting that some third team reps at left tackle. And the back up at left tackle right now is you don't Kaufman but shot drill Henderson. Going up against use I mean he's got good feet he's got good length. But he doesn't he's not exactly technically sound just yet has all the potential you can walk. And Jerry Hughes is taking advantage of them. There's an outside in move that poll them on trial Anderson I don't even think he initiated contact with elect tackle he was by him on the inside it was. It did not there was not a good look for shock trauma Alan Branch also had some sort of medical issue he was dealing with he returned now we was at practice yesterday correct Alan Branch is that yes while heat. Failed his conditioning get up to condemn okay that's what Israel what it was going to be he was on the non football illness list though because. It was explained to me that it's something that something showed up on his medical past that like that they needed to test for further. And so they put him on a non football illness list initially and any that was conditioning test the the tests on what you're looking for from a medical perspective. All came back clear but he was on and on the poll this list and that's Okay thank you for clearing that up and that makes more sense because it appeared as though him in kind of one in the same where there are going through something but now we know that. What the situation was there. Speaking of the conditioning test obviously would Marcel Darius he reports the Terry Kinney field is conditioning test Italy for day we know why now we took care of some legal matters down in Alabama said from the beginning about Marcel that. Get them here just get them here and he should be OK I mean he's got to come early enough time to practice and meetings we know what happened last year but. Getting here getting away from people that don't best interest in mind he's now here so now he's on the practice what have you seen from him and does he seem like he's gonna be committed to this football team. Well I think it's it's premature to speak on the latter because it's all about. Now what you say it's. About what you do over a long period of time but what he's done on the field I mean he came right in him and had a pretty good date for his first date back. There's one play where he peers decide in in god and EJ Manuel and and manuals kind of rolling to his right. Marshall arias didn't mean to but he he collided with little bit and put his hands and needed immediate by the Darius who was it was taking first team reps yesterday and they know he's a big part of the team he knows he's a big part of the team and it's on him to be able to show that he is committed all the way through this season now this is the easy part. You look at training camp. You have all of your peers sleeping in the next right I mean you're not gonna be late for anything they are going to await your bought up. That's real test is during the season Wendy's in his own place. No ones no ones and your and it's on him to set that alarm wake up. And and go through routine to get himself to to get to the facilities on time each and every time so it this is easy right now. It's really good point for the phone lines built an LP Billy was Kelly go ahead buddy. I show that the op practice eventually and I facility that it they have on the and the couple questions one does not cover our quarterback Emanuel I look at. A look at what court and I look at how like lecture or less like carefree. Just look like you've got to focus it's strong passes and no well you got wide open receivers that are. Thirty years now the fuel and misses but by. No it's. Great because it just seems like here like Charlotte or here he cares less. Or doesn't like hey. A little different like. An immediate need to actually don't need he's got to be more accurate and actress really bad. I had another question or else group that another question twirling that one comment was. I don't know how well. A lot into that at duke because certainly. Receivers too as well as a quarterback. And I mean this category you can see it occurred here. It's yeah all these various equality act in stride. As marks and I can be a little bit of all I'm and I had a lot of question. Here this air world saying. Our view is. Quarterly supplies about like and what. He had no idea about his maturity isn't that something could say about a coach at. Coming into their first round draft choice he didn't know much about the cute personality maturity. Now why why why why why what do you know so much about it I mean he's he's actions does the coach have compared to the scouting staff and general manager right Greg Yeah I think. He talks with him throughout the process and obviously a lot of these guys are on the past behavior put. I think what is speaking to is more of the work ethic. And just going through the paces now Not really being a guy that. It is a look at me look at me type of person he's he just goes about his work comes into the building earlier sleeps late and everything like that that's that's the maturity I think is talking about four. A guy who just turned 41 years old. I did he can talk with a bunch of coaches and I'm sure they probably did about their maturity and and what they elected off the field but. All the same don't give a great clinched until you have him there in person the EJ Manuel point that you need. It was a bit of an over exaggeration he's not missing receivers but it. He's missing them by right to work three maybe sometimes 45 but it's not. twenty yards but I will agree with the caller that. The footwork is something that is an on going issue that is leading to the accuracy Daniel Jeremiah who works for the NFL network NFL he's a former scout. He was tweeting while he was at practice yesterday tweeting along with the with the practice and and it basically said to the same effect EG manuals footwork is a work in progress. So that's going to be one of the biggest issues for EJ Manuel to help himself get to a level. Where he is where he's able to hit these past has consistently because those are one of my major critiques. Being consistent in heating there was intermediate routes in not being so. All over the place low a little bit. To a little bit behind him in stride and and you can make so much more of your office but he's not doing that then. And they're gonna struggle. about the linebacker rotation you wrote about that to BGR Tom can you tell our audience know what happened at practice yesterday there basically it was five guys that were getting first team reps throughout practiced yesterday before. Yesterday's practice. All we release saw. Was Brandon Spikes getting the middle. And Nigel Brad on the weak side in Keith Rivers on the strong side. Well they decided to give a little bit more rats a couple of other guys though one which was kind of obvious the rookie third round pick Preston brown. He took some reps with the first team. And the surprise one is a god has even been on the roster for two weeks Stevenson Sylvester they just picked up as a free agent. He was getting some first team reps as well what they were essentially doing. They were there and some. 335. they were doing isn't as some nickel looks and what they were doing is they were giving time. To each one of the guys outside of spikes who stayed. In the middle the entire time when he was out there but they were giving some time to random rivers Sylvester and brown. And weak side strong side middle and just trying to cross train the model three positions which are Smart. Really interesting how that's gonna shake up shape up with the loss of Kiko Alonso. But as we said from the beginning in now you know. Kyle Williams said this on summer we show this week. It it if there's a silver lining in the Kiko Alonso injury jealous of the fact that didn't get these guys it and I know what you have you're not doing it two weeks in this. You know the season we have to throw everything together at least they have that time to valley which obviously that's what's going on especially on these off days with England right. Oh for sure and I think that was probably a good reason why Stevenson Sylvester ended up getting some first team reps yesterday. They just wanted to see if he could perform at the same level in against the first team offense and and go from there. So this is in. In ever evolving competition we don't know who's going to come out the winner what we do know with Brandon Spikes will be middle linebacker on an obvious run down. We know Keith Rivers will be out on the field in some capacity whether it's weak side strong side we don't know yet. And then somebody whether it's Brad Adam brown or Sylvester will be out there is the third line to take it to help. Be alongside Keith Rivers when there are indeed the nickel looks and things like that. I was going to ask you about eight player but a caller named Bobby. He has the same player in my all it can steal my thunder Bobby you're much ahead It basically lock our parties involved in the audience and not at all loud you know opinions. I just wanted to and our respect your opinion what do you know about only Moriarty. Our people and it for precious and as well as Egypt may well. Which is. Like manipulation. is decent like that keep track of our you know like and intellect and pat. I'm IE eight dug a little starters out like Canadians are guessing what does campers and actually about that. Yeah with manual dress that perceived as pat the ball he signs and in some times that it gets into his panel bay and gets to a patient and settling for for a dumped down to running back or tight or something in that sense that he's got to get over. I mean he have to learn how to get off his first read go to his second. In in look all around the field to find his guy around the just settling for the that's. That's also an issue besides the accuracy. Now we the other part of it Tony yeah hockey. He has. The most athletic schism of the top three which I believe power Scott at least Smith and oh yeah hockey is most at a lot of schism the most natural receiving ability. He doesn't have as much height as as Scott Chandler. But you know he's probably the better receiver in my opinion however. He injured his hamstring yesterday we don't know the severity just yet we don't know if he'll be out at practice today but it was it was something that. Kept him from finishing practice and he went in the locker prematurely. Yet to name only Jacqui just has an innocent healthy his whole career seems to go in he's had a productive couple seasons for Kansas City but. That's been not only the story of his pro career. But the story of his career at Iowa as well he suffered so my interest throughout his career. I'm late to the but they're too. Issues in opposition they just got to get you real quick as I I haven't really. Heard a lot about these and even pay attention to tell me what's happening for the safety position with a rotation is. And that is there kicking battle going because let's remember they saw Dustin Hopkins on the roster and re sign it carpenter. Yeah nothing to report on either because it's at this point it's been an open and shut case. At safety and sorcerer's he has taken every single rep at the strong safety with the first He's always played along Eric Williams duke Williams and Jonathan the second team CDs though there hasn't been any competition here there just yet. And for the kicking mail that is our audio. Doug Murrow said the other day that the only way Dustin Hopkins is going to make this roster is as we kick off specialist and to prove that point further. Three out of the five practices so far they've done some field goal kicking. Justin Hopkins had 22 attempts I'm the interpreter has had 22 attempts Justin Hopkins has had to. Carpenter's 21 point opposite to do so that competition is Null and that set. That is over it is over right about that Joseph thanks man appreciate it coming out and had a great afternoon out there enjoy the weather and of course we'll look forty reports tonight to be GR five did not come in on Twitter at Joseph was Kelly thanks god thank much they'll talk to next I that is he's out at saint John night practice tonight 6 o'clock in the meantime. Bryant goes he'll come along we're talk about the Porter cup we'll give us an update on the leaderboard at the Niagara Falls country club also.

But before that but before that what's gonna be really cool is on Friday night on Friday night Friday afternoon I should say. the bulldogs are gonna be taking a well deserved rest and Brian and I will be sitting in for them posting drive time Friday night and we will be yet. From Cleveland why Cleveland. Because will be better way to can't be got to go to for the hall of fame and will be in Cleveland on Friday night. So Bebo didn't have to change the actual initial Scotia open bowl order Essen beat okay Brian I mean I I guess I'm self serving put myself by saying this first but. C show opened below sound right kind of works like that the bride to be really cool time we have back on the line right now but. Next week drive time you knew from Cleveland or have a great time and Saturday night helping coverage I'm looking forward to it. Should be a great time it though it is a fun time to get together to go to and I look at Florida know you haven't been they're all being ceremony before and I'm excited to share indicative of the cool experience luckily I've got to do a lot with the Asian. Though it should be good and Andre go and while there ought to talk about Camelot. Yes can be really fun so Friday night once again folks really Brian and I instead of the Bulldog here they're gonna take a nice. Well deserved break next Friday night and we're gonna head Kent Ohio and on the way there will take a stopping Cleveland will host their show. Then we'll have Saturday night full coverage starting at 5 o'clock here and to GR Bogut out of the podium we'll have injuries a to stuff coming your way and that of course on Sunday. All the pregame coverage that you're gonna need right here and BGR in the bills' kick off the hall of fame game and pre season. Against the New York Giants it's incredible that cigarettes here right before we get the golf quick ask your thoughts on. Hearing that Jim Kelly is going to be an honorary captain did and and the coin toss going to what he's going through this is really great news for everybody. And it should be a pretty moving moment I would get it and you know even if you're not they're gonna make for great TV great radio here yet. Should be quite a period tell there I'm guessing what the fact that the majority of the It's obviously going to be and a one of the in the game at that time. Would probably beat and a lot of the Buffalo Bills fans. I'm guessing it'll be maybe a lot of moment of the night when eat out there are getting used to calling taught that should be great But you yeah you're gonna have haltingly and yet but you swept up. In. It could be a part of history of football and they're great they're going in that we can you become a I know it's over like you become a fan of football and the appreciation for the game more after going to happen. I'm not that you're not always got to number one for the build a you know Akeelah eroding support but. That weekend. Is more of like your fan of football and become more beloved at EI you know every cut my daughter learn more about the to walk of so. The great weekend telling moment with the quite thought think going to be phenomenal. It's going to be awesome. The last time Jim Kelly when Jim inducted I should say. That's the reason that they the ceremony right that's what you're telling me I didn't realize that that that was the cause. Of the ceremony actually be moved inside the stadium tells about it. Yeah beating here last week we're talking about they used to always have the ceremony on the steps outside. All of the hall of fame in an Ohio and it would be fine even for when they had what they considered to be larger crowd of you know maybe a thousand or so people putting any accommodation for outside the steps they would set up and but. Normally the ceremonies that it'll be taken place between I'm guessing you know hundreds of people may be a 1015100. Thing like that well. Kelly week and we didn't alleyway and and obviously the first bill to go in and forever. There was such a large contingent of bills fans calming. And buying and wanting to be a part of that ceremony that the people can't or essentially here all that they wouldn't be able to. Safely hold it. Anywhere near the steps so they decided to do it in the stadium for the first time ever. And with the crowd going even beyond. What was expected go to Oregon and one of the representatives from the pro football being called that time we get our shell or the other and he said that they expected. Their biggest crowd ever somewhere like in six to 7000 range and then went 141000. People showed up from buffalo. But it ceremony. They it would insane and that they said had they done on the steps it would have been the maps would afterward and say I felt they moved into the stadium. As the NFL does that make it bigger and better all the time and now they turned it into this grand don't show it in that stadium ever sent Push to move it into this stadium was because of buffalo people traveling to ceremony. Bryant as someone who's been out there I promise we'll get to golf and among folks are picked Porter going out right it's also about it but a lot of people are going to the whole thing they have the tickets for the game at the ceremony. Somebody leaky vent their a few times. What should they basically do RT literary when should they arrive which they expect as far as you're getting there early enough maybe seeing the hall of fame how should. plan that weekend if they're going for the first time. Well I think obviously there at all of the key part of it if you're coming for the weekend are at the right. Halting ceremony with Andre in the the going into Saturday night. And in the game Sunday night it here I'm guessing maybe a lot of fans they're gonna leave on first thing on Saturday morning. You wanna get yourself. A decent amount of time to get yourself into the stadium and I got my thought would be. Is that Saturday afternoon if you're there early at the under go through the now they have updated wait. Weighing all the time it had a head like I called their feature. Area that every year that's a new part of all payment then of course there's a part that show. All the busts through every that are always there but other constantly updating that I've been there. It's so laughable to go in which is Ralph well consumption will be the new things America. But you wanna go to policy because it definitely something that. Even down to just some of the cool old school stuff with the uniformed evolving to the team displayed all it's sort of stop. And each time a more hands on I think everything's great he wanna replicate that out on Saturday night. There are going to be in the kitten Akron area. Sports bar filled with built fans felt fine you can and it'll be eating your view if you actually want to talk. With player and up. This is probably about access he'll ever have all gamers walking around in the stadium here all the time so you get there early enough. You hold the ball into you Michael really early. On Friday night. They have an enshrine their dinner. Even can't get in the I'll that you can buy tickets or and I know that there's information on and what's good about that but at the really cool ceremony. On two times ago. When Bruce McLennan. I got a chance to go to that and that was pretty neat because that and actually physically get to Wear that jacket. Is that night. And that the speaker that you know again you wanna live it up you can buy tickets at a dinner and have it all the other thing you can do I know in the area. That we can. I know you're I had Saturday a a little PGA golf the PGA golf and the World Golf Championships in Akron and then it. Nor that you're looking for somebody Saturday morning or Sunday morning that there. That you wanna go watch some golf in the morning that they too but got probably a little bit here of like. Restaurant. And did you almost majors and in which is about maybe it Keener now. Right you join me here on the BJR Brian what's going out the Porter cup today is the number three obviously so was today that they are days they were that's I'm sorry I knew today I just think it's Saturday but it is the final round right. Yet normally Saturday you think robbery but it is the Porter cup though it meters Saturday event. And the leaders just teed off about a half or belt Jeff expert entered the three shot lead. And at the moment nobody that on the course and really caught the best player on the court right now. Crenshaw. Has gotten a couple under par no relation to except about that you'd think it would be but eat up to minus four but. A couple of players keep an eye on Gavin hall lot of Pittsburgh New York buying it yet. Who played that the universe access to actually tied for the lead at the US open an eighteen year old Olympic years ago. also expect the second last group I think that the coolest group to go watch you're gonna go out. This afternoon that grouping there what about hot where at all. Arab there was with Trevor Wilmington within that view of woman in Rochester there in the second last group and all in the third let you other big mean geographic today. After the date read back of expert who hit the ball I'll. A pretty healthy either. The guys that are chase and we're gonna have to shoot 85600. Are. In order to do it but they've got pretty good condition to do it today it's like the appear in Lewiston and a letter don't break. It's been a great. We weather right I mean it's really no problems all right. Now and they've had whether in the or the ways. But it's been about as perfect as they could have. The weather's been good for growing I know are the Rust Belt from one week immediate few weeks ago a lot longer. I didn't penalized if they admit screen but. Because we've had a lot of rain the greens are receptive so they hit good shots you're gonna eat well. It's a good scene there thirty some great crowd we're up there this morning four ball show from seven and nine and regarding some people following. The player including a thirteen year old will content. Youngest player ever to play in the Porter cup he 83 over on his round so far but. Like you sit there and look at. That side himself. And then you watch him hit the ball and I'm against you and almost twice size yet es gonna destroy scored it. Bryant I think the reason why the rough is bigger as we crushed it and we crushed it so much that's that we got to change this. Yeah they that if it's told deal I like to know August. Of course right it's a beautiful course other folks we are we time we always do that they're so nice to us up there at the Porter got this it's such great event she got up there if you haven't you're within shot in my voice and get up there to to data. To watch some of these kids play I should take kids to shut these men and kids you gotta go up there and do it. you go real quick. Out of these three people. Hey what do you think would be the best to get if we when we Cleveland NB who would bills fans wanna hear from the most I'll give you. LeBron James Johnny cell in Donte Whitner. Who. Who would build experience running an Everyman now. Yes right exactly and you think LeBron what ends they'll be more of the guiding you kind of want interview like let's LeBron really get talent. Would be a more memorable fun interview saying. To brag that I got a chance to interview LeBron James could be better you know an accent. But in terms of a what I think would be a better radio interview that we got to a lot of them I think it would be on a. would bills fans tune in which which one would most more fans to say OK I am not missing this I'm tuning in. You get that close Whitner obviously caused quite a stir with built them right. Yeah well that's where we need we need doctor Earl PD indie rock out there and see we get outs of the now. That's right help you get both the regardless whether we have either of them. We're gonna caught on a great interviewed on our show Saturday and with that all the former build it'll be there they're always so welcoming to talk Of course of course Jamar visit in given that he's introducing not all those guys will be there and wherever lots really cool stuff for everybody get Brian I'll be hosting partial to the Bulldog. Next Friday live from Cleveland on our way to can't on Saturday. In at 5 o'clock with your full local to our free you will coverage before. The induction ceremony Brian good job today Mann Porter cup coverage thank you for being out there to event we're glad that we have people like you around to argue that exposure. Bank's outlook reported that we can YouTube that is I got to take a quick timeout will come back one touch shot knock this. Marshawn Lynch holdout situation that's going I think it's ridiculous. And I'm actually not usually the guy that goes after players were wanting more reason I think there's a lot of risk that involved here players but what marsh on student. I made have to I I can't agree with and would not be very happy with at all that was one of the players in the Buffalo Bills. I quickly if I get to break Greg likens coming up here at 1 o'clock from insider radio down in Miami. And we're checking on dolphins can't because they have opened up give as well lots of pressure on right down there. Take his step in is year number three Marshawn Lynch is holding out of Seattle Seahawks camp. Marshawn Lynch two years ago signed a four year contract. And I'm not one of these people that reaches under the contract under the contract because teams don't honor contracts. Anytime you say under the contract. Let's remember teams he'd cut you at any time they don't on our contract guys sank three or four year deals if they can cut him after one year. there they're not honoring their side of the contract so I never say that about players either. Because I understand players wanted to renegotiate sometimes in. They want you trying to maximize their value we get as most money because there shelf lives are short in this league but the case Marshawn Lynch. Dude got paid seventeen million guaranteed in the first two years of four year deal. The team took the risk instead we'll give all your money up front and then we'll pay you another. Eleven million salary with bonuses equal fourteen million over the next two years not guaranteed. He took that two years he took their two million. I'm sorry they're seventeen million over two years seventeen million he took. To play for two years which was guaranteed hit a played last year to get the seventeen because it was fully guaranteed his first year salary. So that's how long it took to get that you know the the guaranteed money now they have cities like I'm not giving more guaranteed money at two years let them ideal. It's gonna hold out retire. This is this is the problem I have. It's not about not battery contract it's about hate the team took all the risk I for two years. And I your unwilling to take the risk the next two years and I get it there's a lot of risk I museum players' side and the stuff I really am. The man they paid him two years they seventeen million dollars guaranteed. And that was the that's the trade you take for taking a four year deal you get more money up front to have that security. Any now he's threatened a hold out. And the Seahawks are going through what many many champions go through in many sports they get good they're good players have to find a way to pay them guys get greedy guys want the money. Marshawn Lynch that's what he's doing Timmy it's that plays out. Also how does impact other running backs like CJ Spiller Jamaal Charles it's eighteen million dollars in new money. From the he says I want a new deal and hold out mean they blinked quit. They give a lot of money preposition that supposedly devalued now by the way around the league. Eighteen in new money for the next years to three years ago at the exact deals a lot of money though he got cash and this is gonna affect the market for running backs we almost CJ and are free agents at the end of the year. Greg likens insider radio coming up next we'll check in on dolphins camp.
