Two former Bills — safety Da'Norris Searcy and quarterback Matt Cassel — have been informed by the Tennessee Titans that they will be released, the team announced on Friday. Searcy was set to make $3.85 million in salary and bonuses next season. He signed a four-year, $23.75 million contract — with $7 million guaranteed — with the Titans in 2015. The 29-year-old reco…

Brian Daboll comes to Buffalo with an extensive NFL resume, mostly in various roles with the New England Patriots. But he also has been an offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns in 2009-10, the Miami Dolphins in 2011 and the Kansas City Chiefs in 2012. Here are some notable numbers, but consider that Daboll worked with quarterbacks Brady Quinn, Derek Anderson…

Doug Whaley bucked the trend of fired Pegula Sports and Entertainment executives remaining silent about their performances. Whaley was a guest Monday on SiriusXM NFL Radio and was gracious about his departure. He took the blame for not getting the job done in his seven years with the Bills, four as GM. Whaley reduced the problem to his failure to find a franchise qua…

OK, fellas. You're in this together. One doesn't escape if the other one fails. One can't leave the other behind. And the owners can't wash their hands by rationalizing somebody else hired these people. Bills rookie head coach Sean McDermott and rookie GM Brandon Beane will win as a pair, lose as a pair. Terry and Kim Pegula are on the hook for both. One Bills.…

It's safe to say the Pro Football Hall of Fame won't soon be calling for a copy of Sunday's game tape between the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys. The Bills escaped with a 16-6 win that was every bit as ugly as the score would indicate, sealing the victory when third-string running back Mike Gillislee raced to the end zone for a 50-yard touchdown with just over 2 minutes…

Welcome to the extended preseason. The Buffalo Bills begin the painful process of playing out the string at 1 p.m. Sunday when the Dallas Cowboys visit Ralph Wilson Stadium for the first of two meaningless games to end the 2015 season. The Cowboys similarly do not have anything to play for, and have already ruled out star receiver Dez Bryant (sorry, fantasy owners), mean…

Just a couple months ago, the Buffalo Bills were locked in a three-way quarterback competition. My how times have changed. Tyrod Taylor emerged from that competition as the starter, while one of his challengers was shown the door and fans are screaming for the other to be shown the exit, too. With Matt Cassel in Dallas and EJ Manuel’s spectacular crash-and-burn performa…

A pair of AFC East teams could really use a victory Sunday afternoon. The 1-1 Buffalo Bills meet the 1-1 Miami Dolphins at 4:25 p.m. in Sun Life Stadium. Here are all the details you need to know for the game, plus five things I'll be looking for: • TV: Ch. 4. Announcers: Spero Dedes (play by play), Solomon Wilcots (color analyst). • Radio: Bills Radio Network. Buffalo-…

Let the record show that Matt Cassel will go down in history as the Buffalo Bills' starting quarterback in the 2015 season opener against the Indianapolis Colts at Ralph Wilson Stadium. For one play, that is. Cassel took a shotgun snap on the Bills' first play, with expected starter Tyrod Taylor lined up as a slot receiver in the slot on the left. Taylor came around behi…

EJ Manuel's rollercoaster career with the Buffalo Bills took a dip Tuesday morning when the team re-signed quarterback Matt Cassel – and promptly named him the backup to Tyrod Taylor. That means Manuel will be relegated to the duties of No. 3 quarterback. Naturally, the Bills' 2013 first-round draft pick was asked following practice whether he felt like a change of scene…

The whole quarterback scenario that has played out with the Buffalo Bills is just as strange to Matt Cassel as it is to those outside the organization. "It's a long story," Cassel said of how he went from being released Saturday to re-signing Tuesday and being named the backup to Tyrod Taylor by coach Rex Ryan. "I think it's better if" General Manager Doug Whaley and Ryan…

With Monday's announcement from coach Rex Ryan that Tyrod Taylor will be the Buffalo Bills' starting quarterback, it's fair to wonder what will happen with the other two players who were competing for that job. One of them, third-year pro EJ Manuel, is wondering just the same. "I'm still on the team thus far, so just continue to work and we'll see what happens," Manuel s…

Seen and heard outside Ralph Wilson Stadium before the Bills’ preseason opener against the Carolina Panthers.... Fans divided on QB Neither Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor nor EJ Manuel has been able to establish himself as the Bills’ top passer thus far through the preseason, leaving fans with a wide array of opinions on who they’d like to win the starting job. Justin Robert…

SUMMATION: Going against the Buffalo Bills' defense is no picnic. During Wednesday night's practice at St. John Fisher College, Bills defenders registered an unofficial 12 sacks. Granted, four of those came against fourth-stringer Matt Simms. Still, that made evaluating the other three quarterbacks vying for the starting job tough at times, but there were still some good a…
