Here's a great bar conversation to have, courtesy of a tweet from NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah on Friday. "The 2011 NFL Draft class should be a documentary one day," Jeremiah wrote on Twitter. "Seven of the top 11 picks will be Hall of Famers. Cam Newton (1) Von Miller (2) AJ Green (4) Patrick Peterson (5) Julio Jones (6) Tyron Smith (9) JJ Watt (11)." I'm not sold …

Baker Mayfield was selected No. 1 overall by the Cleveland Browns in last month's NFL Draft, but he insists that he did not know he would be selected in that spot until he heard from Browns General Manager John Dorsey. Mayfield said Thursday on Sirius XM Radio that he thought the Browns would select Josh Allen if they did not select him. Allen, of course, was selected b…

At least on one side of the ball, the Buffalo Bills will have some stability in 2018. Coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will enter Year 2 with their scheme, which is a welcome change after years of players continually being forced to learn new defenses. The story isn't the same on offense, which will have its fourth offensive coordinator in t…

Josh Allen got his first taste of being on an NFL field during rookie minicamp over the weekend. Allen recognizes the adjustments he needs to make from his days at Wyoming to play for the Bills. "There’s a few similar concepts, it’s just verbiage is different," he said. "It’s football. The game hasn’t changed. There’s not tons of new concepts every year that go in. O…

One of the greatest moments of Ricky Proehl’s life is captured in an incredible photograph. Proehl's 3-year-old son, Austin, is perched atop his shoulders as he celebrates a Super Bowl victory with the St. Louis Rams on Jan. 30, 2000. Wearing a No. 87 Rams jersey that’s far too big for him and with his name on the back and with his hat turned backward, Austin is smiling…

Here's another chance to curse common first names. An innocent ESPN interview Friday night with the station's Buffalo Bills beat reporter Mike Rodak has sparked social media theatrics, with a modest side of humor. Arizona Cardinals' senior vice president of media relations, Mark Dalton, spotted an error in an ESPN lower-third that claimed quarterback Josh Rosen had p…

Q: So, just give us your feelings on how your first day as a professional went? A: [It] felt good. It’s awesome to get back on the field, throw to some guys, and just start moving around again. We’re out of the draft process and now it’s real football. I feel like a little kid again, just doing what I love to do. Q: What are some things that the coaches really wanted…

Sean McDermott hopes the Buffalo Bills can find the next Quintin Mikell in the 12 undrafted free agents who officially signed with the team Friday. An undrafted free agent out of Boise State, Mikell turned himself into an All-Pro safety with the Philadelphia Eagles during the time McDermott was on their coaching staff. “Really a credit to the way he approached his jo…

Head Coach Sean McDermott Friday, May 11, 2018 Q: Can you just go over what you’re hoping to get out of the two day rookie minicamp, Coach? A: Yeah, it’s good to get the guys in here beginning last night a little bit. You want to come in- it’s on two different levels: the first level being the drafted players starting to understand our schemes, our systems, our p…

I must say, I'm touched. The Mailbag took a three-week hiatus and people actually missed it. There was a pile of mail waiting, on all manner of subjects. And no one told me to retire or move back to New England (where I spent last week). It's hard to get to everyone's questions. I still have some good ones sitting in the file from last fall. So in an attempt to be more …

Bills coach Sean McDermott started rookie minicamp Friday with a news conference with reporters. Here are some of the highlights: Overall:  "We are not where we need to be, and you can say the same for our roster." On Josh Allen: “Josh Allen has a strong arm, we all know that. ... I've been around the league to know it's one of the stronger arms, but there a lot o…

The team signed cornerback Taron Johnson to his four-year rookie contract Friday, making him the fifth member of the eight-man 2018 draft class to sign. Johnson, a cornerback from Weber State, figures to get an opportunity to win the Bills' nickel cornerback job. He won the 2017 Big Sky Conference Defensive Player of…

The Buffalo Bills' rookies are in the building. The team will hold minicamp this weekend for its drafted players, undrafted free agents and select first-year pros, along with a group that's in on a tryout basis. Here's a look at what we'll be watching for: 1. The Josh Allen Show. Clearly, the Bills' first-round quarterback is the main attraction. Getting a chance to …

Once the Buffalo Bills finalize contracts with their 12 undrafted free agents, the team will have its 90-man roster set. That's not to say there won't be changes before September. June 1 is a key date for potential cuts around the league, and the Bills will surely have an eye on any players who hit the open market who could help. After figuring in contracts for their dr…
