Marcell Dareus arrested again


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/3/2014) Bills defensive tackle Marcell Dareus was arrested last week for his role in drag racing in Hamburg, N.Y., reports the Buffalo News. He was charged with three misdemeanors and four vehicle and traffic charges. 

Per the paper, Dareus is being accused of reckless endangerment, leaving the scene of a crime involving property damage and reckless driving, along with other offenses. 

Dareus was arrested in his home state of Alabama about a month ago when he was pulled over for speeding and charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia. He was found with synthetic marijuana. 

The Bills picked up the fifth-year option on Dareus in late April, which will pay him more than $8 million in 2015. Once the legal process plays out, Dareus could face league discipline.

Jim Schwartz planning 'attack scheme' for Bills' defense


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) New Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz is looking forward to working with all of Buffalo's talent up front, led by Mario Williams, Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus.

"We’re an attack scheme, it’s a scheme built on the guys up front getting after the quarterback," the former Lions coach said Monday. "As much as you want to be multi-dimensional with personnel groups, this league comes down to one on one and I think we have some guys that can do that.

"Whatever anybody wants to tag the system as far as a name, it won’t be us," he added. "We’re just going to try to do whatever we can every week to do the best to have the game plan. I think the similarities you’ll see is it will be as aggressive as it can be and try to be as physical as we can be and it will be an attack style."
