A jam-packed Bills Mailbag this week, so without further ado ... Rick McGuire asks: It looks like the Jets will have about $106 million and the Bills $92 million available for free agency in 2019. I know money talks, but could you see players signing with Buffalo over New York for less because of the direction the team is headed, or will the “Big Apple” city life be mor…

Kelvin Benjamin's release from the Buffalo Bills on Tuesday was a matter of when, not if. That it happened with four games left in the season, two days after the receiver's 16th game in a Bills uniform, made a couple of strong statements. One, it was an emphatic admission of a major mistake by the Bills' decision-makers. Benjamin was a big-time bust in every sense of…

Don't look now, but the Buffalo Bills are officially "in the hunt." A pair of victories over AFC teams in their past two games has at least kept the Bills on the TV graphic showing the postseason picture. That leads us into our first question in this week's mailbag. Let's get to it: Brendan Sweet asks: Any chance the Bills can run the table and sneak into the playoff…

I missed Eric Wood in the Bills' locker room this week. The team's former center would annually host a Thanksgiving eating challenge for his teammates. The goal was simple: Add the most percentage of body weight. Richie Incognito was recognized as the toughest to beat, although there was some speculation as to some of his methods being a little shady. I hope everyone…

It’s a reasonable certainty Jalen Ramsey has no idea who the big rookie is that the Buffalo Bills are starting at left guard Sunday. There are probably more than a few Bills fans who don’t know his identity, either, but they won’t be on the other side of the ball from him. Ramsey will. Oh, there’s a chance the Jacksonville Jaguars’ cornerback noticed the number, 75, …

You have Buffalo Bills questions that you've submitted to me via Twitter @viccarucci. I have answers: @mclennon99: You’ve covered the NFL for several years now. In your opinion, from what you’ve seen so far, does Josh Allen look like the franchise quarterback fans are hoping for? You could see Jim Kelly had the “it” factor and so did Doug Flutie for that matter to so…

Here are my five takes on the Buffalo Bills at the bye: 1. Josh Allen must show meaningful progress in however many games he plays through the rest of the season. The Bills cannot say with any certainty they know what they have in the rookie quarterback. Their faith in him becoming a long-term answer is still built predominantly on projection rather than solid eviden…

A day after the Buffalo Bills’ 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears – the team’s fourth in a row and sixth by a lopsided margin – Sean McDermott delivered a message that essentially said: “Don’t worry, we’ve got this.” He didn’t use those exact words. But he did, as he has multiple times since becoming the Bills’ head coach last year, use his resume to make the point he and t…

Analysis

Sean McDermott has made a living trying to stop teams from scoring. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year head coach rose to his current position through the defensive ranks, starting as a defensive assistant in Philadelphia before working his way up to coordinator, first with the Eagles and then with the Panthers. So he’s well aware of how difficult it is to slow opposing …

LeSean McCoy said frustration with the Buffalo Bills’ 2-7 season and his own poor production prompted him to avoid talking with the media since the Oct. 29 loss against New England. But the running back acknowledged after Friday’s practice — thanks in no small part to a warning from the NFL that not fulfilling his contractual obligation to speak with reporters at least …

Understand this: Dion Dawkins is not fooling himself about how he's performing in his second season with the Buffalo Bills after such a strong rookie year. The left tackle isn't ignoring the reality of what so far has been the season from hell, especially on his side of the ball. "Last year, I felt like I had a great year," Dawkins said. "This year, it could be a who…

Think back only about 7 1/2 months. It's downright startling where the Buffalo Bills and Sabres were then compared to where they are now. It's like things have been completely reversed. The Bills were still in the glow of an actual playoff berth. Never mind that it took the moving of Earth from multiple football gods to get there, with several plays in the Orchard Pa…

If you haven’t already been poring through information on 2019 NFL draft prospects, now would be a good time. The hot mess that is the Buffalo Bills’ 2018 season managed to get even messier with Sunday’s 41-9 loss against the Chicago Bears at New Era Field. Here’s a bulletin: At 2-7, the Bills’ season is effectively over. With little hope of fielding a credible offen…

LeSean McCoy has eluded media members much better in the last week than he has defenders. The Buffalo Bills’ running back was a no-show on the field and in the losing locker room after his team’s 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday at New Era Field. McCoy gained just 10 yards on 10 carries in the loss. Over the last three weeks, McCoy has run 24 times … for 24 y…
