Former Bills coach Rex Ryan has transitioned to a job as an analyst for ESPN and says if he's done with coaching then "so be it." But like most former coaches, Ryan isn't closing the door on the possibility of walking the sideline again. "You have to be open to any possibility," Ryan told NFL.com. "It's got to be the right situation, because I'm happy where I'm at. B…

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 quarter…

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane were given funzo questionnaires for the Buffalo Bills' 2017 media guide. Favorite movie, best concert attended, biggest pet peeve, last book read and so forth. The Q&A's were conducted separately, but they produced a striking parallel. In response to "biggest obstacle overcome," they gave the same answer. "Breaking into the NFL…

Rex Ryan was brought to Buffalo to shut down opponents and get the Bills into the playoffs. Two years later, Ryan is out of a job and the team is no closer to ending The Drought. What went wrong? Owner Terry Pegula said in introducing Ryan that he felt the team was two plays away from an 11-5 record, so he wanted a veteran coach to get the Bills over the hump. …

It's understandable if members of the Buffalo Bills did a little celebration dance in private Wednesday. The possibility of not having to face New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in Week Four of the upcoming season went up when his request for a hearing with the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals was denied. That means barring a last-minute Hail Mary, Brady will be…

1. After reading the most recent interview Rex Ryan and his brother, Rob, gave to Sports Illustrated's Jenny Vrentas, it's hard not to come away shaking your head. They are like the real-life versions of Eastbound and Down's Kenny Powers. Understandably, that doesn't sit well with all Bills fans -- some of whom would prefer the team actually win something before the coache…

The Buffalo Bills continue to bargain hunt in free agency, making three additions tho their roster. Linebacker Zach Brown, cornerback Corey White and wide receiver Leonard Hankerson all signed with the team Monday. Brown, 26, is a former second-round draft pick of the Tennessee Titans. He appeared in all 16 games with one start in 2015, finishing with 77 tackles and a pa…

1. The additions of Greg Little and Jarrett Boykin on Tuesday continues a trend of what the Bills are looking for at wide receiver. Both Little and Boykin are 6-foot-2. Leonard Hankerson, who was claimed before the regular-season finale and is set to become an unrestricted free agent, is 6-1. Dez Lewis, promoted from the practice squad late in the year, is 6-4. The Bills a…

Rex Ryan is keeping it in the family in an effort to fix the Buffalo Bills' defense. Ryan, the Bills' coach, added his twin brother, Rob, to the team's coaching staff Sunday night with the title of assistant head coach/defense. “I'm excited to have Rob join our staff and I think he will be a great asset for our defense. He has a tremendous working knowledge of our sche…

The Buffalo Bills' season-ending press conference was long on generalities and short on specifics. For reporters sifting through nearly 45 minutes of comments from General Manager Doug Whaley and head coach Rex Ryan, finding worthwhile nuggets of information was mostly a fruitless endeavor. There was, however, one particular point that raised eyebrows. Ryan was asked spe…

How many Ryans can one town handle? Buffalo, apparently, is about to find out. Bills coach Rex Ryan hinted that his twin brother Rob, who was recently fired from his job as defensive coordinator for the New Orleans Saints, was visiting Western New York. "Well I think it would be obvious if he was," Ryan said, before smiling and adding, "there's probably some truth to th…

While speaking with Rex Ryan and his family for my Buffalo News feature on him, I realized there really is no such thing as a bad Ryan quote. Rex, twin brother Rob, big brother Jim and mother Doris provided so many anecdotes and insight that I couldn't nearly include all the material. Even the outtakes are worthwhile. So I've packaged some of the best leftover quotes ...…

HENDERSON, Nev. -- Buddy Ryan and his twin sons are known around the NFL as brassy showmen. Doris Ryan shouldn't take a backseat in that department. Buddy's ex-wife and the mother of Rex, Rob and Jim Ryan is a take-no-drivel dynamo. Doris Ryan was Phi Kappa Phi as an undergrad at Oklahoma A&M (now Oklahoma State University), has a master's degree in education from th…
