There is football news happening in other cities than New Orleans — other countries in fact.
According to John Kryk of Canoe.ca, the Bills and the city of Toronto will announce an extension to their five-year series today, with one regular season game per year, and one preseason game during that time. New Bills coach Doug Marrone is expected to attend today’s press conference announcing the event.
The extension has been expected for months, but was delayed by the long process of the Bills trying to extend their lease at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
While expected, it won’t be good news to some Bills players, including center Eric Wood, who called it “pretty much a joke” because of the lack of home-game support and atmosphere.
Of course, the Bills might help that process if they were competitive in those games (instead of getting blown out like they did last year against the Seahawks, 50-17), or just in general (as they haven’t made the playoffs since 1999).
