LeSean McCoy still believes. The faces in the Bills locker room have changed. So too has the coaching staff and front office. But his optimism hasn’t wavered. Even now. The running back appears at peace as he leans back in a black leather chair one recent afternoon, recounting his unexpected arrival in Buffalo. He recalled the apprehension, the reluctance to accept his …

After making two dozen mostly nondescript roster cuts Saturday, the Bills flipped the script Sunday with big surprises, cutting second-year running back Jonathan Williams and linebacker Gerald Hodges, as well as receiver Philly Brown. Williams was a fifth-round pick out of Arkansas who was expected to be LeSean McCoy's primary backup. His presence on the roster was thou…

Here's a look at stories from around the league on Sunday, Sept. 3. 1. Washington's second-year safety Su’a Cravens is mulling retirement.  Cravens, 22, stunned team officials and fellow teammates Sunday morning by telling them he planned to retire. Cravens was a second-round pick in the 2016 draft and a projected starter. The Washington Post reported that team pr…

I often refer to the NFL as the most popular sport in the U.S. But you could make an argument that fantasy football has become a greater obsession in this country. I'm sure some fantasy fanatics consider it an actual sport. The average weekly viewership for NBC's Sunday Night Football last season was 22.5 million, the largest of its 11-year existence. Estimates of fanta…

After mostly predictable moves Saturday, the Buffalo Bills came up with a bit of a shocker Sunday by releasing running back Jonathan Williams. The Bills also waived linebacker Gerald Hodges and wide receiver Philly Brown to make room for three additions made earlier Sunday via waiver claims: rookie offensive tackle Conor McDermott (from the New England Patriots; he is n…

Sept. 3, 2000 – The decade of the 2000's seemed to start to so well for the Buffalo Bills. They had an immediate rematch with the team that had eliminated them from the previous season, the Tennessee Titans. Do the words "Music City Miracle" and "Home Run Throwback" ring a bell at all? The schedule-makers showed a sense of humor by bringing the Titans into Buffalo fo…

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…

Last Tuesday, I was chatting with veteran center Eric Wood and asked if he knew how many current Bills were on the team when Rex Ryan was hired in January 2015. “Nine,” Richie Incognito interjected from the adjacent locker. “Without counting, I’d say nine,” Wood replied, in an inspiring show of team unity. Not bad. The number is eight. I thought they’d guess highe…

The Bills trimmed their roster to the required 53 players Saturday afternoon without making any real surprise cuts. As far as undrafted players to watch, defensive end Eddie Yarbrough made the team while receiver Brandon Reilly and defensive end Ian Seau were let go. UB and Sweet Home High School product Jordan Johnson was cut, too. Veteran wideout Rod Streater (toe) wa…

It was easy for Brandon Reilly to quickly become a favorite of Buffalo Bills fans. Not only did they love his long-shot path as a zero-star walk-on at Nebraska to undrafted rookie in the NFL who made head-turning plays in the preseason, but they also ate up his background as a standout youth hockey player. That the kid was among the nation's very best prospects as a …

Looking to bolster his wide receiver corps, Bills General Manager Brandon Beane turned to his former club: the Carolina Panthers. The Bills traded cornerback Kevon Seymour in exchange for wide receiver Kaelin Clay and the Panthers’ 2019 seventh-round pick. Seymour, a 2016 sixth-round pick, had until very recently been in a crowded race for the Bills’ right cornerback spo…

Looking for another wide receiver, Bills general manager Brandon Beane turned to his former club. The Bills have traded cornerback Kevon Seymour to Carolina in exchange for wide receiver Kaelin Clay and the Panthers’ 20197th-round pick. Beane, of course, was the Panthers' assistant general manager before becoming the GM in Buffalo earlier this year. Seymour, a 2016 sixt…

In one day, the Bills parted ways with a local product, a fan favorite and the relative of an NFL Hall of Famer. Running back Jordan Johnson, a former Sweet Home High School and University at Buffalo standout, was released on Saturday as NFL teams reduced their rosters from around 90 to the 53. Former Nebraska wide receiver Brandon Reilly, who impressed in the preseason, …

There were numerous times over the years in which I wished to speak to that kid in the picture standing proudly alongside Greg Bell after his first practice in Fredonia back in 1984. You see a young, vibrant and wishful teenager who was eternally optimistic when it came to Buffalo sports. If he only knew what would transpire in the coming decade, how the lousy team he a…

After what looks to be a fairly easy opening-day opponent in the New York Jets, the Buffalo Bills seemingly have significant challenges throughout their 2017 schedule. Three of their first five games are on the road, and they all figure to be tough: the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons, and Cincinnati Bengals. Then, there’s what looks to be a daunting stret…
