Levi Wallace was one of the best stories of the Buffalo Bills' 2018 season, going from an undrafted rookie who didn't start until Week 10 to Pro Football Focus' top rookie cornerback of the season. Without Vontae Davis' retirement, Wallace might not have even seen the field. But with only seven starts to his name, Wallace will have to play his way back into the starting…

Losing the Bills was a legitimate fear for Western New Yorkers prior to the team's 2013 lease agreement with Erie County. Owner Ralph Wilson was aging and a new owner could've tried to relocate the team. But when the team signed a new lease that contained a non-relocation agreement with a $400 million penalty, those fears were eased. Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz…

By now you're plenty aware of LeSean McCoy and his declining numbers. And you're plenty aware that the running back's future has been one of the biggest stories of the Bills' offseason. By all indications, McCoy will be the lead back in 2019, at least to start the season. Jay Skurski took a look at the McCoy situation in installment No. 3 three of our 10 biggest ques…

The Bills got better at wide receiver. They got deeper at running back. They planned on being stronger at tight end and just might be come the middle of the season. They improved their offensive line, too, and the guy behind center will have a full offseason as the No. 1 quarterback and should be better. So how much different will the Bills look in terms of their off…

Jadeveon Clowney continues to be a popular topic among readers who submit questions for our Bills Mailbag. This week, Vic Carucci was asked if the Texans might consider swapping their edge rusher for a running back. "Not seeing it," Carucci replied. "Although Clowney doesn't figure to have any future with the Texans, I don't see them seeking any sort of one-for-one trad…

The Bills clearly like Ty Nsekhe. They signed him this offseason to a two-year deal worth $10 million. They gave him $3 million just for signing his contract and reportedly guaranteed his $3.2 million salary this season, too. But if Nsekhe never plays a snap at left tackle, the Bills might be OK with that. That scenario would mean Dion Dawkins stepped up and won the job…

The News' look around the AFC East finished with the Dolphins, who are "widely projected to be the worst team in the NFL this season." Josh Rosen could be the team's quarterback of the future after being booted from Arizona in favor of Kyler Murray. He'll have the beat out veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick, who always seems to find his way into the starting lineup. But there doe…

The Bills were among the most active teams in free agency, but the Jets weren't far behind. Which AFC East rival had a better offseason?

Frank Gore was in Miami this weekend at his football and cheer camp in Coconut Grove, where he's from. The 36-year-old Bills running back was asked if this upcoming season would be his last. “I just go how I feel,” Gore told the Sun-Sentinel. “If I feel I can’t do it no more, then I call it.” The Bills brought Gore in to bulk up their running back corps that needed i…

Once upon a time this offseason the Buffalo Bills were as close as it gets to acquiring Antonio Brown. Then they weren't interested in Odell Beckham Jr. when the Giants were ready to trade him. Brandon Beane decided that John Brown and Cole Beasley would provide adequate upgrades at the wide receiver position. The Bills then didn't take any receivers with their eight dr…

A reader in this week's Bills Mailbag asked, "What record is acceptable for this regime of GM and coach to be seen as successful this year?" Some fans might respond with, "As many wins as it takes to make the playoffs." Vic Carucci thinks the team needs to do more than get to .500. "I realize seven or eight wins would technically represent an improvement over last se…

For as much attention as Vontae Davis' mid-game retirement received last season, not enough was made of this fact: The Bills literally had a starting cornerback quit the team in Week 2 and they still allowed the fewest passing yards per game in the NFL (while ranking in the top half of the league in run defense). How was that even possible? Coach Sean McDermott and GM B…
