The Associated Press reports the Pittsburgh Steelers beat the Buffalo Bills 20-0 Thursday night. The defense has only allowed seven points in their last two games.

QB Kordell Stewart looks much more comfortable and confident in new coordinator Mike Mularkey's streamlined offense than he did a year ago in Kevin Gilbride's system. Backup QB Kent Graham appears on his way out. He looks like he is almost certain to be cut as Tee Martin, who played the final three quarters, and Tommy Maddox back up Stewart. Bills PK Steve Christie missed field goal attempts of 22 and 40 yards. He missed seven of 11 during the pre-season, and his job could be in jeopardy.

QB Rob Johnson was sacked twice and the Bills gave up six sacks in all. He was also flushed from the pocket numerous times and had three passes batted down.

The Associated Press reports Buffalo Bills president and GM Tom Donahoe said on Tuesday the team may be interested in obtaining more draft picks.

Donahoe doesn't think the team will try to move up in the draft, but he didn't rule out moving down in order to gain an extra pick or two. Right now, the defensive line is the biggest need after losing DE Marcellus Wiley and starting NT Ted Washington. Buffalo is also switching to a 4-3 defense, meaning they're going to need an extra lineman. Coach Gregg Williams would also like to add a big, speedy cornerback. The Bills are also in need of a kicker and punter after failing to re-sign Steve Christie and cutting P Chris Mohr, who later signed with Atlanta.

The team continues to look for a punter and PK and they are trying to find a way to hold onto Steve Christie. They are also looking at NFL Europe and the XFL. The team wants to bring in a third QB to help relieve some of the burden on Rob Johnson and Alex Van Pelt. On the offensive line, Bill Conaty played center and Jerry Ostroski played guard in mini-camp. The team has some cap space, but only 46 players under contract. The hopes to get two, three, or even four compensatory picks.
Wed, 14 Mar 2001 07:45:40 -0800
The Democrat and Chronicle reports the Buffalo Bills are pondering their options at PK and punter. They are not in any rush to sign someone at either spot.

As an update to an earlier story, Donahoe also said QB Pete Gonzalez will be brought in for a workout in the near future. Gonzalez has a minor shoulder problem that needs to heal. Donahoe said he'd like to re-sign free-agent tackle Marcus Spriggs if his price comes down, but that the team has no interest in free-agent guard Jamie Nails. As previously reported, the team would like to sign a fullback to plug into their West Coast offense, but Donahoe said it would probably not be former Bills FB Sam Gash.
Wed, 07 Mar 2001 23:24:27 -0800
The Washington Post reports the team will visit with free agent OL Dave Szott (Chiefs) on Thursday. Free agent OL/long snapper Ethan Albright (Bills) will also visit on Thursday.

Coach Marty Schottenheimer said he is not yet ready to pursue a free agent QB. Jack Mills, Carney's agent, said he had a conversation with the Redskins Tuesday night. Mike Kagnoff, Brien's agent, also said he had preliminary conversations with the Redskins.

The Washington Post reports the Washington Redskins are starting to think about their PK situation and coach Marty Schottenheimer has expressed some interest in free agent PKs Joe Nedney, Doug Brien and Morten Andersen. There have been some reports of the team being interested in Steve Christie, but the others seem to be the Top 3 on the list. Following up Saturday's report, the coach also said the Redskins may be interested in free agent G Dave Szott. The agent representing Seattle DT Riddick Parker said he would like to have his client visit Washington, but no visit is planned at this time. Ralph Cindrich, the agent for free agent QB Gus Frerotte, said he has spoken to Schottenheimer about Frerotte but does not believe the Redskins are ready to act at this time.
Sun, 04 Mar 2001 11:32:59 -0800
The Tennessean reports in addition to the previously reported Steve Christie and John Carney, the Titans may also take a look at free agent PK Doug Brien, formerly of the Saints. Alan Lowry, the Titans special teams coach, was with the 49ers when Brien was drafted in 1994. The agents for Christie and Carney said yesterday they expected their clients to come to Nashville soon. The paper reports the team's reported interest in DE Kevin Carter, the Rams franchise player, may be slightly overblown and mostly a result of efforts by Carterís agent, Harold Lewis. The team does not have a lot of cap room right now even though another of Lewis' clients, OT Fred Miller, restructured his deal.
Sat, 03 Mar 2001 04:32:59 -0800
The Tennessean reports the Titans contacted the agents for two vetean PKs yesterday as they look to replace the released Al Del Greco.

Terry McCormick reports for the Nashville City Paper the Tennessee Titans may be looking to add a veteran place kicker as GM Floyd Reese stated competition for PK Al Del Greco is unlikely to come from a rookie. The top expected PKs available are Olindo Mare (Miami), Steve Christie (Buffalo) and Joe Nedney (Carolina). However, it doesn't look like the Dolphins are going to let Mare go.
Sun, 25 Feb 2001 01:59:57 -0800
SportsLine.com's Len Pasquarelli reports the Washington Redskins have told the agents for PKs Olindo Mare and Steve Christie that they will be very interested in their clients. As reported in an earlier report, the Redskins probably flirted with the anti-tampering rules by having those discussions. League officials won't even have to consider the case, because no one will file a complaint and there is no proof of the potential infractions.
Thu, 22 Feb 2001 08:02:52 -0800
The Democrat & Chronicle reports Buffalo Bills GM Tom Donahoe said the Bills will be looking hard at offensive and defensive linemen, corners and running backs in the NFL Draft. After releasing one of their QBs, they may look to add a young QB through the draft. The offensive linemen Buffalo will be studying closely at the NFL Scouting combine include tackles Kenyatta Walker (Florida) and Leonard Davis (Texas) and guards Steve Hutchinson (Michigan) and Mike Gandy (Notre Dame). Since they may not be able to re-sign PK Steve Christie, they will check out PK Bill Gramatica at the combine.
