This is the second of a three-part series reviewing what the rest of the AFC East did during the offseason. The Miami Dolphins flirted with joining several other teams, including two in their division, in the franchise-quarterback gold rush of 2018. Instead, they're putting their faith in Ryan Tannehill's recovery from a knee injury that sidelined him all last season…

This is the first of a three-part series reviewing what the rest of the AFC East did during the offseason. The New England Patriots lost a Super Bowl, but they haven't lost their way when it comes to being a perennial championship contender. Nick Foles might have been the triumphant quarterback and MVP, but he and the Philadelphia Eagles are still more of a story of …

With so many variables to consider, identifying whether an NFL team actually made improvement during the offseason can be tricky. This year might be one of the trickiest. Five teams, including the Buffalo Bills, used a first-round draft pick in hopes of landing a franchise quarterback. Expecting any of them to make a significant splash this year is likely expecting t…

You've got Buffalo Bills questions that you've submitted to me via Twitter @viccarucci. I've got answers: @markschrader69: I don't think it matters who is QB if we don't get a vet receiver. Thoughts? Vic Carucci: I don't agree with that take at all. The quarterback always matters. The quarterback is the one who makes receivers great, not the other way around. I…

This is the fifth of a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 26 start of training camp. After being blindsided by the sudden offseason departures of Eric Wood and Richie Incognito, the Buffalo Bills are desperately searching for a viable blueprint to reconstruct their offensive line. When the pre-training camp hiatus began after the fin…

Bills

Russell Bodine developed an understanding of the passion of Buffalo Bills fans long before signing with the team on March 19 as a free agent from the Cincinnati Bengals. The veteran center made the discovery as the Bengals were preparing for their 2017 season finale against the Baltimore Ravens. He was bombarded with texts from his former roommate and teammate at North …

About the only recent bit of good news to emerge from the Buffalo Bills' wide receiver position is that Kelvin Benjamin showed up for offseason workouts looking healthier and in better physical condition than he was last year. Benjamin has fully recovered from surgery to repair the knee injury he suffered after being acquired from the Carolina Panthers last Oct. 31 for …

Bills

This is the third of a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 26 start of training camp.  The conversation about who will throw passes for the Buffalo Bills this season doesn't go too far without sparking a second discussion about who will catch them. The first topic at least offers the hope of rookie Josh Allen becoming the long-awaited…

Bills

Shady or ... good luck moving the football on the ground. That's been the mantra for the Buffalo Bills' running back position the past three years. The 2018 season doesn't look as if it will be an exception. In fact, it's fair to say how LeSean McCoy performs this season will, more than ever, determine the success of the Bills' offense, if not the entire team. With u…

Bills

This is the second of a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 26 start of training camp. The first position in the series was quarterback. The one constant in the Buffalo Bills' offense since 2015 is that good things usually happen when LeSean McCoy has the ball in his hands. He has, by far, been the best player on the roster the past t…

Bills

This is part of a series previewing each position for the Buffalo Bills heading toward the start of training camp on July 26. Player Spotlight: Josh Allen Don’t delay the inevitable. Start him now! Josh Allen’s support among a healthy portion of Buffalo Bills fans is that strong, that emphatic. People listen to the typical advice of needing to be patient with a…

Bills

This is the first of a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 26 start of training camp. It took 20 years, but the Buffalo Bills finally made a meaningful draft investment in a quarterback since a guy named Jim Kelly was leading them to Super Bowls. The seventh overall choice they invested in Josh Allen is the highest they've ever spent …

Bills

Marshall Newhouse makes no attempt to paint a smiley face on the Buffalo Bills’ offensive line. Sure, he has only been with the team since March 19, but he is entering his ninth season in the NFL and this is his fifth different team. Newhouse has seen enough, heard enough and done enough to know that a rebuild the magnitude of the one the Bills are undertaking up front …

Bills

LeSean McCoy is a month away from the milestone birthday that typically means a running back’s career is running out of time. Thirty. The Big 3-0. It’s the age when the legs tend to stop churning quite as swiftly as they once did, when “elusive” goes from describing the ability to avoid would-be tacklers to the futility of finding a lost step. Or two. Everyone on …

The cleats tell a story, opening a fairly wide window into Jeremy Kerley's life beyond football. "Everything that matters to me," the leading candidate to become the Buffalo Bills' new slot receiver said while staring down at the letters he scrawled on each one. The mission was to create something that would, literally, be with him on every step of his professional j…
