Funny enough, the little brother of a kid I graduated HS with is now on the Bills. (My younger brother actually played HS ball with him) He played college ball for Northern Illinois.

Should be a pretty cool homecoming for him. Your first year in the NFL and you get to play at the stadium you grew up watching pro football in. Pretty sweet. Too bad he's not in green and gold though.

Good for him - but actually, aside from the RB (Willis McGahee)... ? Who else is there?
They have Takeo Spikes and Josh Reed and all of the other names, I don't even recognize... even from any Sports Shows....

At least it'll be one extra pre-season game... sorta....

This is good news. It will make Family Night a little better and for some Bills players who never will make it in the NFL it will be a wonderful experience.

This is some salesmanship to future free agents. If this is now the tradition of Family Night it will help free agent signings in the future.

The Bills will see some class.

IPBprez- You must recognize Sam Adams 12 years in N.F.L.- Lee Evans of Wisconsin W.R-London Fletcher L.B. 8yrs in N.F.L.- Travis Henry R.B. 5 yrs in the league. (a pretty fair R.B.) - Kelly holcomb Q.B. 8 years in the league.- J.P Rosman Q.B. (Packers would have liked to drafted him but Bills beat them to it)- Eric Molds W.R. 10 years in the league. How about Troy Vincent of Wisconsin- S. 14 years in the N.F.L? Packers really missed it on him, they took T.Buck instead. My favorite Rookie on Bills Jim Leonhardt of Toney, Wi. and the Wisconsin Badgers. All of 5'8'' and about 170lbs, but he sure has a nose for the football.
Besides the Packers will be sick and tired of beating on each other in training camp by August 5 and will like to be taking it out on somebody else with different color jersey and it makes it more interesting for full house at family night at Lambeau Field. It is a win-win situation after weeks of rough summer training camp sessions.then hosting Bills for a dinner in Lambeau Field Atrium after the two Teams beat on each other during two training sessions and a scrimmage before a full house at Lambeau Field. Only in Green Bay.
