Former UH linebacker Solomon Elimimian today accepted an invitation to the Buffalo Bills' rookie camp this week. The camp runs Thursday through Sunday. If he does well, he might receive a free-agent contract.

David Veikune is looking at a big payday. Last year's 52nd pick — Quentin Groves, a defensive end from Auburn — had signed a four-year deal worth $3.3 million, of which $1.6 millon was guaranteed.

At UH today, Veikune waited for his girlfriend to pick him up.

Frank Gansz, regarded as one of the top special teams coaches — and a frequent speaker at UH camps and meetings — died today. He was on June Jones' staff at SMU.
I spoke with JJ today, and he said Gansz "went in for a knee replacement (surgery). He never came out of it. It's a sad deal. He was doing fine. That's the shock about it."
