The signings have slowed to a trickle around the NFL. After a frantic first week of free agency, most of the headline-grabbing moves have been made, but as the Buffalo Bills showed Monday, there is always work to be done. General Manager Brandon Beane added depth to the offensive line with the signings of former Bengals center Russell Bodine and former Raiders right tac…

A week ago, the Buffalo Bills had 18 players set to become unrestricted free agents. Now, five days after the market opened, just under a dozen of those players still do not have teams for the 2018 season. The Bills re-signed veteran defensive tackle Kyle Williams to a one-year, $6 million contract, while also re-signing running backs Travaris Cadet and Taiwan Jones …

Year One of the Brandon Beane-Sean McDermott pairing in Buffalo was a leap in the right direction. The Buffalo Bills ended an embarrassing 17-year playoff drought under the leadership of their general manager and head coach. If nothing else, that bought them a longer rope among the team’s passionate fan base. Their work is far from done, though. The end goal, of cour…

If a franchise quarterback magically appeared on the Buffalo Bills’ roster tomorrow – don’t hold your breath – there is little doubt the next-biggest team need is a big man for the middle of the defense. Or better yet, big men. The trade that sent Marcell Dareus to the Jacksonville Jaguars midway through the 2017 season opened one hole in the starting lineup, and Kyl…

For a playoff team, the Buffalo Bills have a long list of needs. General Manager Brandon Beane acknowledged as much last month at the Senior Bowl. “We're a long way from where we need to be,” Beane said in Mobile, Ala. “This year was setting the culture and expectations of what we need to get done.  ... We have a lot of holes to fill. We know that. We're going to do …

A year after leading the NFL with 24 unrestricted free agents, the Buffalo Bills are once again a team loaded with expiring contracts. The Bills have 18 players set to hit the open market in March, meaning General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott will continue their radical reshaping of the roster that started last year. Some of that reshaping will be done…

The drought is dead. The Buffalo Bills finally ended a 17-year postseason dry spell, leading to mass celebrations, six-figure charitable donations and hope that, finally, the team is on the right path under the leadership of General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Before attention turns squarely to planning for 2018, though, here is one final look bac…

You have to be worried about the talent level of the Buffalo Bills' front seven in the wake of Sunday's 47-10 shellacking at the hands of the New Orleans Saints. The defense of Sean McDermott and Leslie Frazier relies on a dominant front four. McDermott benefitted in Carolina from the beefy defensive tackle combination of Kawann Short and Star Lotulelei, both high-end, …

Below are the Buffalo Bills' snap counts for the 2017 season, with some observations from the Week Eight win over the Raiders. • The coaches mean it when they say they're going to stick by rookie receiver Zay Jones.

The timing isn't good for the Buffalo Bills to meet the Oakland Raiders. Quarterback Derek Carr and Co. are coming off a big win in Week Seven, 31-30 over Kansas City, and come in with extra rest having played on Thursday Night Football. Carr threw for more than 400 yards in the win over the Chiefs, as Oakland's high-powered offense started to find itself. The Raiders w…

Third and 9, ball at the Tampa Bay 32-yard line, 2 minutes remaining and the Buffalo Bills dial up a play for … Taiwan Jones? Yep, that happened Sunday. And guess what? It worked.

John Miller has gone from starter to backup to out of the lineup entirely over the last few weeks for the Buffalo Bills. Miller is a healthy inactive Sunday, when the Bills host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New Era Field. That means Vlad Ducasse will start at right guard – and has won that competition. Also inactive for the Bills are: tight end Charles Clay (knee), li…
