[BN] Blitz newsletter: Contract site Spotrac has roots in WNY

What’s the market like for a website devoted to sports contracts?

Fans and media make up the largest audience, but that much may have been obvious. Hardcore fantasy football players are next. But according to Michael Ginnitti, a Western New Yorker who founded the popular contract site Spotrac, it goes even deeper than that.

"Our audience is interesting," Ginnitti said. "A couple of things I didn't see coming. Real estate people follow me in free-agent periods because they want to know who's coming to town. If Mario Williams is coming to town, I want to be the first guy in the door to get him a house in Hamburg. Financial investors and financial managers follow. There's even a following of women who want to know who's single and who's making what."

Former Bills tight end has tryout with WWE: Remember Dorin Dickerson? The tight end who spent 2012 with the Bills apparently has a tryout with WWE.

Cornerback preview: Tre’Davious White is a burgeoning star, but the Bills are hoping Vontae Davis can return to form and lock down the cornerback position vacated by EJ Gaines.


Player spotlight: Phillip Gaines looks to replace Leonard Johnson as the Bills’ slot cornerback. Mark Gaughan says the move showed the Bills value size at the position.

Bills Mailbag: It's all about quarterbacks, Vic Carucci wrote. Don't focus so much on the Bills' dearth of receivers, he said.
