It was with pride and pain that Buffalo Bills safety Siran Neal wore his new No. 33 jersey as a tribute to his late childhood friend, as the second-year pro spent an afternoon last week running around with a handful of teammates and horde of children at Hillview Elementary School in Lancaster. “My brother, he died, he got in a car crash right before I got drafted last y…

It was only a handful of years ago when Lorenzo Alexander and Heath Farwell were division rivals in the NFC West, Alexander a linebacker and special teams ace for the Arizona Cardinals, Farwell in a similar role with the Seattle Seahawks. While Alexander finished the 2013 season on injured reserve, Farwell finished with a ring, helping Seattle annihilate the Denver Bron…

Matt Milano doesn’t want to think about the gruesome dislocated ankle and fractured fibula that ended his second season in the NFL. He’d rather forget about that Week 14, fourth-quarter play with 1:38 on the clock, when the New York Jets faced third-and-goal from the 4-yard line and the Buffalo Bills were still clinging to a 23-20 lead, that moment when Sam Darnold was …

Bills quarterback Josh Allen said his top offseason priority was “consistently delivering the ball where it needs to be,” acknowledging and addressing one of his largest perceived shortcomings Tuesday, the second day of organized team activities. “Ball placement is huge, especially in this league,” Allen said. “The type of concepts that we have, trying to get the ball t…

John Urschel needs little introduction around Buffalo. The Canisius High School graduate, a former Penn State and Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman, continues to pursue a Ph.D. in mathematics at MIT. And he’s written a book, “Mind and Matter: A Life in Math and Football,” which went on sale Tuesday. The memoir was co-written with his wife, journalist Louisa Thomas, …

No one was in the house to hear Jason Milne laugh on that Friday night last October, with his wife and three young daughters out of town, and the former college defensive back felt compelled to share his joy. Milne rewound the televised game he was watching, hit play after a few seconds and held his iPhone vertically, pointing its camera toward the bottom right corner o…

Ed Oliver took the odd step of announcing more than a year in advance that he would turn pro following his junior season at the University of Houston. Not long after, he delivered a far more surprising message to his coach. This one merited no public interest, but promised a far greater impact on Oliver’s day-to-day life. "You’ve got an All-American defensive lineman…

The Buffalo Bills’ offensive line was lacking in athleticism due to the loss of Richie Incognito and Eric Wood in 2018. The signing of center Mitch Morse from Kansas City is a big step in filling that void. Morse’s footspeed gives the Bills a center who can get to the second level in run blocking and make quick adjustments in protecting the interior of the line in pa…

Jason Croom was both melancholy and motivated when the Buffalo Bills released veteran Charles Clay last month. “He’s a great dude. One of my favorite people. It’s sad to see him go,” Croom said last week during a phone interview with The Buffalo News. “We understand it’s business, but that’s got nothing to do with us. We still have a good relationship outside of that.” …

Tyree Jackson, that freight train of a quarterback from the University at Buffalo, the one listed at 6-foot-7-inch, 249 pounds? The prospect whose name was trending on social media after he ran a 4.59-second 40-yard dash on Saturday at the NFL combine in Indianapolis? The one who recorded a 34.5-inch vertical jump? Who leapt 10 feet in the broad? Who rifled passes so hard …
