So much for that "quiet time" on the NFL calendar. In the past three weeks alone, the following has occurred: A dead body was found at the home of Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, and the player's brother has been charged with manslaughter. Adam "PacMan" Jones got into a fistfight in the middle of the Atlanta airport (he wasn't arrested and police said he was defendin…

Welcome to the period of the NFL calendar teams dread most. The six-week break from the end of spring practices to the start of training camp gives players a chance to reconnect with their families and get some much-needed rest. It also provides them the sort of free time that scares teams, because that's when bad decisions can be made. Surely, that was part of Sean McD…

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen continued to see some time with the starting offense Wednesday on the second day of the Buffalo Bills’ mandatory minicamp. The first 11-on-11 session during practice was a red-zone segment. Allen’s first pass was knocked down, and he scrambled on the next play. He made an impressive touchdown throw on the offense’s third snap, throwing a ro…

While some might jump to conclusions based on the rotations during the Bills' minicamp this week, coach Sean McDermott offered perspective on what the lineup looks like. More than a depth chart, it's a rep chart. "This time of year there's not an overall set depth chart," he said. "We're looking at our roster and trying to find and evaluate players at all positions. Tha…

All that remains are three minicamp practices before the Buffalo Bills head out for summer vacation. Next week's mandatory sessions will wrap up the team's spring. Coach Sean McDermott has used the practice time reporters have been able to view to mix and match plenty with his lineups. There are wide-open competitions at quarterback, wide receiver, interior offensive li…

Nathan Peterman is over it. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year quarterback is beyond ready to put a rocky rookie season behind him. “I mean, talked about last year a lot. To be honest, I’m kind of on to this year,” Peterman said last week after the Bills’ third practice of the spring. “I learned so many great lessons last year. I thought I had some ups, some downs as wel…

I'm leading this week's Mailbag with a weather question that was debated in the Bills' media room: How many days a year is it nicer in Buffalo than Atlanta? Now, if you love hot, humid conditions, the answer would be close to 0. But if you can't stand the heat, what is it? You could look at the average number of days with a room temperature of about 72 to get a prett…

Quarterback Josh Allen Q: How’s it going? A: It’s going well. Being out there with everyone on the team, firing around and getting back to real football. It’s been awesome. Q: How about [the fact that] everybody’s learning a new offense? What do you think about the challenge of, now that you’re into it, learning the new terminology and all that? A: Yeah, I mean, …

The highlight of Thursday's Buffalo Bills practice was a 30-yard bullet rookie quarterback Josh Allen threw for a touchdown to receiver Ray-Ray McCloud. It was a perfect rope, and the fired-up Bills No. 1 draft pick ran to congratulate his fellow rookie. "In my opinion there's nothing better than throwing touchdowns," said Allen, offering a quote that Bills fans hope…

Here are the highlights from Bills coach Sean McDermott's meeting with reporters Thursday: Bills wide receiver Zay Jones had knee surgery last week and will miss the remainder of the spring practice sessions, coach Sean McDermott said Thursday. McDermott said "at this point" he does not believe that Jones' 2018 season is in doubt. McDermott did not want to comment …

Here's a great bar conversation to have, courtesy of a tweet from NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah on Friday. "The 2011 NFL Draft class should be a documentary one day," Jeremiah wrote on Twitter. "Seven of the top 11 picks will be Hall of Famers. Cam Newton (1) Von Miller (2) AJ Green (4) Patrick Peterson (5) Julio Jones (6) Tyron Smith (9) JJ Watt (11)." I'm not sold …

At least on one side of the ball, the Buffalo Bills will have some stability in 2018. Coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will enter Year 2 with their scheme, which is a welcome change after years of players continually being forced to learn new defenses. The story isn't the same on offense, which will have its fourth offensive coordinator in t…

We won't know if the Buffalo Bills aced the 2018 NFL Draft for a few years. We can safely say now, though, that General Manager Brandon Beane accomplished nearly every one of his goals. The team left the draft with potential franchise cornerstones on both offense and defense in quarterback Josh Allen and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. They got a potential nickel cornerbac…
