Former Bills wide receiver Brandon Reilly has found a new opportunity. Reilly signed to the Dallas Cowboys' practice squad this week after the team made a series of moves following the gruesome injury to wide receiver Allen Hurns. He had spent the last two weeks of the regular season on the Detroit Lions' practice squad. "I had hurt my (leg) earlier in the season w…

Cut-down day has started around the NFL. The Buffalo Bills and the other 31 teams have until 4 p.m. to trim their rosters to 53 players. The Bills entered Saturday with 87 players, meaning 34 cuts are coming. At the 4 p.m. deadline, league sources reported quarterback AJ McCarron was traded to the Oakland Raiders. https://buffalonews.com/2018/09/01/bills-trade-qua…

When was the last time a preseason game generated this much buzz? I wouldn't be surprised if there are 60,000 people in the stands Sunday when the Buffalo Bills host the Cincinnati Bengals at New Era Field. The highlight, of course, will be rookie quarterback Josh Allen working with the starters – an excellent opportunity for him to win the starting role for the season …

The Buffalo Bills' quarterback competition took another turn Monday evening. The team announced that rookie quarterback Josh Allen will start Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals in the third preseason game — traditionally the dress rehearsal for teams as they prepare for the regular season. The announcement came after Allen worked with the starters at practice in t…

CLEVELAND – The top of the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart at wide receiver is starting to crystallize. After that, though, it’s still anyone’s guess as to who has the inside track for a spot on the 53-man roster. The first three receivers into Friday night’s second preseason game against the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium were Kelvin Benjamin, Jeremy Kerley and … Zay Jones. …

1. AJ McCarron’s turn with the starters. We’re assuming this, but it would make sense given the rotation the team has used throughout training camp. All of the quarterbacks played well in the preseason opener, meaning the competition to be the starter remains wide open. McCarron can make his case with a strong showing against a Cleveland team that has a pair of good pass r…

PITTSFORD — There will be no pitch count for LeSean McCoy in 2018. "I think I answered that question last year with 'whatever we need to do to win games, that's what we'll do,' "  Bills coach Sean McDermott said Sunday as the team returned to practice at St. John Fisher College. It's been a common occurrence for McCoy to look like the best player on the field during …

Admittedly, the bar is low when it comes to preseason openers, but that was a solid showing from the Bills' offense on Thursday night. For what it's worth, I thought Josh Allen played a better game than social media would have you believe. There are a lot of "analysts" out there who seem to have a big interest in Allen failing to justify their scouting reports of him be…

Pencil is definitely the best writing tool to use when jotting down the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart at wide receiver. At any given practice, a steady shuffling with the starters takes place among the 13 receivers competing for anywhere between five and seven jobs on the 53-man roster. On Friday, it was Ray-Ray McCloud’s turn to take some reps with the first unit. McCl…

PITTSFORD – It was not a memorable practice for any of the Buffalo Bills’ three quarterbacks Sunday. AJ McCarron, Nathan Peterman and Josh Allen all had at least one pass intercepted on a day the passing attack was stagnant. McCarron was with the first team. Most of his passes were near the line of scrimmage. He made a nice throw to Kelvin Benjamin on a slant route d…

PITTSFORD – If you want a reason Brandon Reilly can make the Buffalo Bills' roster this time, you need to look beyond the obvious. Of course, the competition at his position, wide receiver, is as open as it has been in a long time. Of course, he came close enough to making the roster last summer, before winding up on the practice squad, to merit the second chance he's g…

The Buffalo Bills got robbed. Members of the Pro Football Writers of America voted recently for its yearly awards, one of which is the Pete Rozelle Award, which is given to an “NFL club public relations staff that consistently strives for excellence in its dealings and relationships with the media.” This year’s winner was the Minnesota Vikings. The Bills were one of …

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…

Brandon Reilly's underdog story attracted a lot of attention last summer when the Bills brought him to training camp and he led the Bills wide receivers with 11 receptions for 139 yards. The News' Vic Carucci traced Reilly's journey from youth hockey star to walk-on at Nebraska to Bills hopeful. Reilly was on the Bills' 53-man roster for the last five games of the se…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Williams has not made any decision regarding his playing future. The Buffalo Bills' veteran defensive tackle accomplished a career goal by playing in his first postseason game Sunday, and the sting of a 10-3 loss overshadowed any talk about his future. Williams' contract will expire in March, and it's still to be determined if he wants to retur…
