The dizzying number of changes implemented by the Buffalo Bills heading into the 2017 season have been well-documented. Just 22 players who appeared in a game for the team at any point last year are back this year. A total of 21 offensive players who accounted for 3,752 snaps and 20 defensive players who took 7,089 snaps in 2016 are either playing elsewhere or out of th…

Preston Brown watched this offseason as, one by one, the Buffalo Bills said goodbye to his veteran teammates. Stephon Gilmore? Off to New England. Aaron Williams and Corey Graham? Cut. Robert Woods? Back home to L.A. Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby? Sent on their way in trades. "I mean we traded away some good players, some good players signed other places, but I thin…

The Tim Graham Show

Buffalo Bills fans still worry about Aaron Williams. So do I. When I heard Wednesday he still wants to play safety after two serious neck injuries and a concussion, that he tried out for the Kansas City Chiefs, I asked him to join "The Tim Graham Show" on Sports Radio 1270 The Radio. Williams played only 10 games over the past two seasons. The Bills released the 34th…

The old cliche that a football player is doing his job when he’s not noticed is usually reserved for offensive linemen. But in the case of the Buffalo Bills, it fits for safety Jordan Poyer. “You hit the nail on the head – he’s been flying under the radar,” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. “His role on this defense is vital. He communicates well back ther…

The Tim Graham Show

The last time Kevon Seymour was in "The Tim Graham Show" studio, he was hopeful the Buffalo Bills would re-sign cornerback Stephon Gilmore. That didn't happen. Gilmore jumped to the New England Patriots. The Bills also cut cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman and safeties Aaron Williams and Corey Graham. All the sudden, Seymour's in line to start for Buffalo in his secon…

While it must bolster Jim Kelly's ego to know he has been irreplaceable for 20 years, he'd rather watch another quarterback take his Buffalo Bills back to the playoffs. Snow falling on a frigid January afternoon, a miserable opponent and Bills fans going bonkers for their boys ... That's what Kelly and Super Bowl teammates Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith and Steve Tasker…

Natalie Perez-Smith didn't know what to make of the digital message she saw on an Elmwood Avenue parking meter. "dEAd." The 20-year Buffalo cop never had seen that before. So she snapped a picture to dispute the possible ticket for parking at a conked out meter. Then Perez-Smith headed into the restaurant for a spirited chat about how inoperable the NFL looks these d…

Bills safety Aaron Williams was back in meetings at One Bills Drive Monday after being taken to a Miami-area hospital for a CT scan and an MRI on his head and neck during the second half of Sunday's loss. Williams was on the receiving end of a high crackback block from Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry that resulted in an unnecessary roughness penalty. "He's walking…

Not long ago, the wicked hit would have been featured in highlight reels for the next week. Damn, bro, you see that play? Aaron Williams got JACKED UP! The NFL and its networks marketed violence. They still do to an extent. We believed it was intoxicating to see players obliterate each other with blindside hits and crackback blocks. We still do to an extent. What …

The Buffalo Bills could have a need at running back. Safety Aaron Williams knows who they should call. Williams took to Twitter on Thursday, advocating for the team to re-sign veteran Fred Jackson. #BillsMafia RT if you think we should be signing @Fred22Jackson back. Fav. if it's ridiculous that it hasn't happened yet 🤔 #MakeItHappen — Aaron Williams (@ajwilliams23…

Aaron Williams made it perfectly clear Monday: He's back. "I'm fully cleared to play," Williams said on the Bills' first day of voluntary spring practices. "Talked to all the coaches. Talked to all the training staff and the doctors. We really went and evaluated everything and made sure I was 100 percent before I got back out there." So even though Monday's practice can …

1. The Bills may very well love Carson Wentz, the North Dakota State quarterback who has impressed this week at the Senior Bowl. But I don’t see any way he slips to them at No. 19 overall in the first round. Bills General Manager Doug Whaley has talked about how quarterbacks who might be second-round talents tend to get picked in the first round because of the importance…

1. Will there be any changes to the coaching staff? Owner Terry Pegula announced last week that General Manager Doug Whaley and head coach Rex Ryan will return to 2016. Left unsaid, so far, is the status of the team’s assistant coaches. Special teams coordinator Danny Crossman could be a convenient scapegoat for the team, being that he was not a Ryan hire and his unit r…

Buffalo Bills safety Aaron Williams will not return to the field this season. Begrudgingly, he's ok with that. "He knows that I really want to play this year, but unfortunately the outcome is a lot different than I expected," Williams said Tuesday, a day after coach Rex Ryan announced Williams would sit out the final two games of 2015. "All I can do is really just get re…

The Buffalo Bills' injury-ravaged defense can add illness to the list of afflictions. Defensive end Mario Williams missed his second straight practice Thursday because of an illness, leaving his status for Sunday's game against Washington up in the air. Williams came in late Wednesday night to meet with defensive line coach Karl Dunbar and go over the game plan, and was a…
