The Bills and Jets defenses should be among the most improved in the league , according to Scouts Inc.'s Gary Horton.
BuffaloBills.com's Chris Brown checks in with offensive lineman Eric Wood, who has been rehabbing from a torn ACL he suffered in Week 10 last season. “I feel great,” Wood said. “I’m in great shape and obviously I haven’t tested it in any practice or anything, but a lot of that is just being cautious. We didn’t want to do anything in the spring that would set me back. The goal is to be back for the first game and I trust the guys in the training room to get me back to that.”
Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco gets married today on the island of St. Martin, writes South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Omar Kelly.

He's hungry again."
Running back Reggie Bush ranks as the 18th-best player in the AFC East, according to BuffaloNews.com's Tim Graham.
