The Bills had given the agent for wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who had announced he was retiring 13 days after joining the Bills last August, permission to find a team that would want to acquire him in a trade. However, no such deal was made. Beane told reporters on Friday that he had no plans to release Boldin if a trade did not materialize. During his news conferen…

Anquan Boldin apparently is ready to end his brief retirement – if another team makes an offer acceptable to the Buffalo Bills. ESPN's Adam Schefter obtained a letter sent Thursday from Bills General Brandon Beane to Boldin's agent, Tom Condon, granting him permission to seek out a trade partner. Boldin, 37, retired from the Bills on Aug. 20, less than two weeks afte…

Anquan Boldin, who spent less than two weeks as a member of the Bills in August before stepping away from the game in the name of activism, wrote a column for Time magazine explaining his decision to retire. The potential future Hall of Fame wideout mentioned his trip to Washington a year ago to talk to legislators about what Boldin said was "how we could use our platfo…

The Buffalo Bills have had it easy when it comes to injuries so far in 2017. The team has withstood the two-game absence of left tackle Cordy Glenn. A strong rotation along the defensive line has allowed the team to replace Marcell Dareus in Week Three and Shaq Lawson on Sunday without a significant drop in performance. As they always do, however, injuries have start…

Did we learn Sunday the Buffalo Bills have their own LaVar Ball? We certainly know Robert Jones, father of rookie receiver Zay Jones, was a far more accomplished athlete than Lonzo Ball's blowhard daddy. But Robert Jones, while in Mercedes-Benz Stadium to watch the Bills play the Atlanta Falcons, went after media and fans from his @robertjonesLB55 Twitter account for…

The Buffalo Bills insist they’re focused on the 2017 season – even if everyone else is looking ahead. With six picks in the top three rounds, and a possible avenue to acquire even more, the 2018 draft will likely determine the success or failure of Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott in Buffalo. If the team’s general manager and head coach can nab a franchise quarterback w…

Anquan Boldin did not wake up Sunday morning and decide to retire. The now former Buffalo Bills' receiver said Monday in an interview on Sirius XM NFL Radio that it was something that he has been wrestling with for a couple of years. "It wasn't a decision that I made all of the sudden," Boldin told hosts Vic Carucci and Ross Tucker. "It was something that I had been …

"Slow your roll," some readers said. "Way too early," others claimed. "Give 'em time, for cryin' outs," I heard. My takeaway from the Buffalo Bills' preseason opener last week was their disconcerting penalty total. They committed 13 penalties. The Minnesota Vikings accepted 10 of them for 106 yards. All those flags irked Bills coach Sean McDermott, but many fan…

Twenty-four hours after the Philadelphia Eagles traded him, Buffalo Bills receiver Jordan Matthews still doesn't know what to think about the sudden development. Shock, betrayal, edginess, excitement, indifference, nausea ... Matthews needs more time to sort through his emotions before commenting. "Feelings are always real, but they're not always true," Matthews t…

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane, the Buffalo Bills' rookie head coach and GM, each was asked if the 2017 roster got better after Friday's trades. They slipped the questions as Floyd Mayweather would an off-balance roundhouse. But throughout their news conferences at One Bills Drive, McDermott and Beane acknowledged they hurt their chances of winning this year. Th…

The Bills’ best defensive backs might as well have formed a musical trio and sung in harmony. All were in unison about what doomed them last week against the San Diego Chargers. Corey Graham practically spat the words on the locker room floor. “Pick plays,” he said. “They picked us,” Stephon Gilmore said, “and we didn’t adjust.” Aaron Williams added the only way t…
