Looking to bolster his wide receiver corps, Bills General Manager Brandon Beane turned to his former club: the Carolina Panthers. The Bills traded cornerback Kevon Seymour in exchange for wide receiver Kaelin Clay and the Panthers’ 2019 seventh-round pick. Seymour, a 2016 sixth-round pick, had until very recently been in a crowded race for the Bills’ right cornerback spo…

Before the game, for the third time this preseason but the first in New Era Field, Buffalo Bills offensive lineman Cameron Jefferson raised his right fist during the national anthem.

One final preseason game is all that’s left now. One last chance for players on the periphery of the roster to state their case.

Keith Wenning knows what the Buffalo Bills want from him. Do plenty of cramming in order to be ready to play quarterback in Thursday night's preseason-finale against the Detroit Lions at New Era Field. In all likelihood, that will be the one and only time Wenning gets to wear a Bills uniform in a game. The Bills only signed him Monday, because they are in the midst o…

Reggie Ragland was a bad fit in the Buffalo Bills' defense. That's undeniable. At 6-foot-2 and 252 pounds, he was built to be an inside linebacker who could fill gaps and make plays near the line of scrimmage in a 3-4 base defense -- the one the Bills were playing when they drafted him. In the 4-3 base that Sean McDermott employs, Ragland was a bit out of his elem…

That was why Hughes, whose hometown of Sugar Lan…

The Buffalo Bills continue to have a quarterback health quandary with starter Tyrod Taylor and third-stringer T.J. Yates still in concussion protocol. How long will Taylor and Yates, each of whom suffered a concussion in last Saturday night's preseason game against the Baltimore Ravens, be kept out of practice and games? The Bills have no clue.
