With the offseason program in the rearview mirror and training camp on the horizon, Jay Skurski looks even further ahead for his latest Inside the Bills feature, projecting what the 53-man roster could look like at the end of preseason.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen joined fellow first-round NFL draft choice Sam Darnold of the New York Jets at the U.S. Open over the weekend at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club. Darnold, the No. 3 overall pick, was recognized often while walking the grounds of the tournament. A fan wearing a polo shirt with the New York Giants logo asked for a photo with Darnold. …

Brandon Beane showed last summer that roster building in the NFL is never complete. The Buffalo Bills' general manager shocked the league when he traded away wide receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby in separate transactions. So plenty could still change between today and Sept. 9, when the Bills open the 2018 season in Baltimore. For now, here's a look …

This question came up in Jay Skurski's weekly Bills mailbag. If your brain went to LeSean McCoy, try again. Keep in mind that this is not the same as asking who is the Bills' best player. Thinking about "safe" roster spots requires a consideration of contract status, talent, replaceability and other factors. Skurski came up with left tackle Dion Dawkins on offense an…

Welcome to the period of the NFL calendar teams dread most. The six-week break from the end of spring practices to the start of training camp gives players a chance to reconnect with their families and get some much-needed rest. It also provides them the sort of free time that scares teams, because that's when bad decisions can be made. Surely, that was part of Sean McD…

The scenery is all new for young Buffalo Bills defensive end Owa Odighizuwa. Maybe that's what he needs as he hits the reset button on his NFL career. Odighizuwa – pronounced Oh-DIGGY-zoo-wah – was a third-round draft pick of the New York Giants in 2015. He did little for the G-Men, got cut after serving a four-game, performance-enhancing drugs suspension last year a…

By Josh Weir, Canton Repository  CANTON, Ohio –  Thursday night began as a celebration of Stark County high school athletics. Eventually, thanks to Jim Kelly, it became a graduate-level lesson in toughness, courage and grit. Less than three months after undergoing major surgery on his mouth to combat another bout with cancer – and facing two more surgeries in the …

Bills' second-year wide receiver Zay Jones was still on crutches at minicamp this week following a knee surgery in May. But coach Sean McDermott expects Jones to be ready for training camp in six weeks, Mark Gaughan wrote in his minicamp wrap-up. From Gaughan: McDermott said he "has no reason to believe" Jones will not be able to participate at the start of training ca…

Before he became the “Wizard of Westwood” and won 10 national championships coaching basketball at UCLA, John Wooden found inspiration from watching how another coaching legend, Frank Leahy, ran his Notre Dame football practice. “I thought my basketball practices were well-organized and efficient. After observing Coach Leahy’s practice, I realized more work was needed,”…

Zing! The final drive of Buffalo Bills minicamp lasted just one play. It was a 70-yard catch-and-run touchdown pass from Josh Allen to Austin Proehl. Teammates whooped and hollered in reaction to the big finish, which meant they were on vacation for the next six weeks, until the start of training camp. The play underscored one main takeaway from the Bills' three-d…

Nickel cornerback is essentially a starting position on the Bills' defense. Leonard Johnson, the defensive back responsible for covering the slot receiver on last year's Buffalo Bills, played 60.7 percent of defensive snaps and started seven of the 15 regular-season games in which he played. Johnson did not re-sign with the Bills this offseason, creating a void in the B…

Marshall Newhouse makes no attempt to paint a smiley face on the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line. Sure, he has only been with the team since March 19, but he is entering his ninth season in the NFL and this is his fifth different team. Newhouse has seen enough, heard enough and done enough to know that a rebuild the magnitude of the one the Bills are undertaking up front …

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen continued to see some time with the starting offense Wednesday on the second day of the Buffalo Bills’ mandatory minicamp. The first 11-on-11 session during practice was a red-zone segment. Allen’s first pass was knocked down, and he scrambled on the next play. He made an impressive touchdown throw on the offense’s third snap, throwing a ro…
