The Buffalo Bills have the second toughest schedule in the NFL this season if you believe Las Vegas oddsmakers know what they’re doing.
Aaron Rodgers nearly upended the NFL schedule two years ago when he told some within the Green Bay Packers organization that he didn't want to return to the team. For the sake and sanity of those in the league's scheduling department, cooler heads prevailed. Rodgers was on the move during this offseason with his trade to the New York Jets, but it was planned well enough in advance that the league and its network partners could get in their requests. The Jets will make six prime-time appearances and have four games in the Sunday afternoon late window.
News Bills writers Jay Skurski, Ryan O'Halloran, Mark Gaughan and Katherine Fitzgerald weigh in on some scheduling topics before the unveiling.
You've heard of to-do lists for NFL general managers? Entering this week's draft, here's a don't do list for the Bills.
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Tua Tagovailoa considered walking away from football.
“You always have your division in the back of your mind,” Miami coach Mike McDaniel said. “It’s important to create a team that is its very best against all opponents because (while) they are two very important games – two games doesn’t get you to the playoffs.”
Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel expects new Bills receiver Trent Sherfield to make positive contributions
Miami Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel expects Sherfield to fit in seamlessly with the Buffalo Bills.
The NFL will consider significant changes to the kicking game, with the competition committee proposing that the league adopt the college rule that allows touchbacks on fair catches of kickoffs and moving the touchback spot on punts to the 25-yard line.
Sherfield is a speedy receiver who adds depth to the wide receiver room and has made an impact on special teams as well.
HENDERSON, Nev. — Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has agreed to a three-year, $67.5 million contract with the Las Vegas Raiders, a person with knowledge of the deal told The Associated Press on Monday.
Two people with knowledge of the deal say the Miami Dolphins are acquiring All-Pro cornerback Jalen Ramsey in a trade with the Los Angeles Rams. Los Angeles will get Miami's third-round pick in the 2023 NFL draft and tight end Hunter Long for Ramsey. Both people spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because neither team had announced the deal. Ramsey had 77 tackles and four interceptions during the Rams' Super Bowl-winning 2021 season. Last season, he had a career-high 88 tackles and four interceptions.
The Carolina Panthers are on the clock. Two people familiar with the deal say the Panthers have traded up to acquire the No. 1 pick in the draft from the Chicago Bears. In exchange, the Bears will receive Carolina's No. 9 and No. 61 overall picks in this year's draft, a first-round pick in 2024, a second-round pick in 2025 and wide receiver D.J. Moore. Plus other news from around the league on Friday.

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Aaron Rodgers says he will make a decision on his future “soon enough” as the four-time MVP quarterback ponders whether to play next season and if his future remains with the Green Bay Packers.
Vic Fangio was introduced as the Miami Dolphins new defensive coordinator at the club’s training facility. Fangio replaces Josh Boyer, who was not retained by head coach Mike McDaniel after three seasons with the club.
Edmunds picked a good year to raise the level of his game. He is due to hit free agency on March 15. He still is in his young prime. He doesn’t turn 25 until May 2. Yet, Edmunds already has 82 games of experience.
The injury total was a lot more than the Bills have been accustomed to in the tenure of coach Sean McDermott.
For only the second time in 10 offseasons, there will be no head-coaching changes in the AFC East, but all but the Buffalo Bills have made significant changes at the coordinator level.
As the Bills found out in their playoff loss to the Bengals, there was a limit to Allen’s success under pressure. When blitzed, Allen still produced big numbers, a ton of yards and touchdowns. But he was not an efficient quarterback overall when the defense brought extra rushers.
"What we saw Sunday was Joe Burrow make some of the toughest throws (far hash, back shoulder) look routine, and Patrick Mahomes doing things on one healthy ankle that defy science and gravity," writes Ryan O'Halloran.
Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa remains in the NFL's concussion protocol and will not participate in the 2023 Pro Bowl, a person with knowledge of the matter told The Associated Press. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced officially. Tagovailoa was diagnosed with his second concussion of the 2022 season more than a month ago, after a Dec. 25 loss to Green Bay.
