Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott were largely silent Monday about Richie Incognito. The Buffalo Bills' general manager and coach largely sidestepped any questions about the team's former left guard, who announced his retirement last week. "Um, you know, not going to really get into detail," Beane said. "Richie's on the reserve/retired list, which is not a part of our…

The Buffalo Bills made official one-year contracts with their four exclusive-rights free agents Monday. Tight ends Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas, cornerback Lafayette Pitts and defensive end Eddie Yarbrough all signed their offers prior to the start of the team's offseason conditioning program. Exclusive-rights free agents are those whose contracts have expired and w…

NFL teams and player agents can stop their ruse now. Both sides no longer have to pretend they haven’t been talking about impending free agents for weeks. That’s because the league’s “legal tampering” period is now open. Ignoring the absurdity of that phrase, here’s what that means, directly from the NFL’s official language: “Clubs are permitted to contact, and enter…

A free agent who's not really "free." In a sentence, that's the best way to describe what an "exclusive rights" free agent is in the NFL. The Buffalo Bills have four players who fall into that category this offseason – tight ends Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas, cornerback Lafayette Pitts and defensive end Eddie Yarbrough. An exclusive rights free agent is a player who…

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…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Buffalo Bills are finally headed back to the playoffs, but they might be going there without their best offensive player. Running back LeSean McCoy left Sunday’s 22-16 victory over the Dolphins in the third quarter with a right ankle injury. McCoy was hurt at the end of a 3-yard carry as he was tackled by Dolphins linebacker Chase Allen. Bil…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — The Buffalo Bills will have one of their top receiving threats available Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. Receiver Deonte Thompson, who was questionable for the game with a shoulder injury suffered during Thursday's practice, is active. Thompson has taken the most snaps among receivers over the last three weeks. He had four catches for 91 yards a…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – Here are my 10 observations from the Buffalo Bills’ 37-16 loss to the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. 1. The NFL should be embarrassed about its absolutely baffling rules regarding what is, or isn’t, a catch. Bills receiver Kelvin Benjamin should have been credited with a 4-yard touchdown catch at the end of the second quarter. Anyone who w…

FOXBOROUGH, Mass.  – The Buffalo Bills will be without starting cornerback E.J. Gaines on Sunday against the New England Patriots. Gaines, who was questionable for the game with a knee injury, went through a lengthy on-field workout with strength and conditioning coach Eric Ciano on Sunday morning, but will miss his fifth game of the year. Shareece Wright is expected to…

The Bills began preparation for next week's game against the Miami Dolphins with questions at quarterback, a recurring theme for Buffalo the past month. Head coach Sean McDermott said Tyrod Taylor has made progress over the past couple of days but his status remains day-to-day. He was inactive Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts after suffering a knee injury against N…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills tried their darnedest to reduce their playoff chances Sunday. Sean McDermott seemingly playing for a tie by punting on fourth-and-1 from the Indianapolis Colts' 41-yard line with 4:07 left in overtime. You don't count on emergency quarterback Joe Webb hitting Deonte Thompson for 34 yards and LeSean McCoy finishing off the game with a 21-yard touchdo…

Bills

One of Sean McDermott’s stated goals this season is to build a football team that peaks in November and December. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie head coach has failed so far in that regard. After opening with a 3-1 record in the first quarter of the season and sitting at 5-3 at the midway point, the Bills have dropped to 6-6 at the quarter pole. A three-game losing streak ca…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills will be without No. 2 tight end Nick O'Leary on Sunday against the New England Patriots. O'Leary, who was listed as questionable, will miss the game because of a back injury. That means Logan Thomas, who has been inactive the last two weeks, will dress. Also inactive for the Bills are wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin (knee), guard John Miller (ankle), …

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Buffalo Bills are still alive in the AFC playoff race following Sunday's 16-10 victory over the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. Here are my 10 takeaways from the game. 1. Tyrod Taylor looked ... like Tyrod Taylor. The Buffalo Bills' quarterback returned from his one-game benching to go 19 of 29 for 183 yards and a touchdown. Taylor left you wanting m…

CARSON, Calif. – The last thing the Buffalo Bills need on offense right now is a major injury. Unfortunately, that might be exactly what they got against the Los Angeles Chargers in a brutal showing Sunday. No. 1 wideout Kelvin Benjamin suffered a right knee injury on the fourth play from scrimmage during the Bills’ 54-24 loss at StubHub Center. Coach Sean McDermott …
