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…

The Buffalo Bills have made certain that Jerry Hughes, their best pass-rusher, isn't going anywhere for awhile. With Hughes due to become a free agent after the 2019 season, the Bills made what they felt was a necessary pre-emptive move Tuesday by signing the veteran defensive end to a two-year contract extension worth a reported $23 million. "In my tenure here, he's…

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, …

The hard news about Ezra Castro had just started moving Tuesday morning around Twitter when Brandon Beane’s phone began to buzz in Orchard Park. He glanced at the number and understood immediately what the call would mean. It was Veronica Borjon, Castro’s longtime partner. She was calling the Bills general manager to tell him about the death of Castro, 39, who with his …

Usually, it’s the other way around. Players leave the Buffalo Bills for the New England Patriots, looking to find out firsthand what it’s like to be on the dynastic side of the NFL tracks. Stephon Gilmore, Chris Hogan, Mike Gillislee and Scott Chandler are among prominent former Bills who recently got their taste of being a part of the league’s gold standard. Gilmore and…

Former Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito was expected to try out for the Oakland Raiders Monday, NFL Media's Mike Garafolo reported. Incognito, a four-time Pro Bowler, played for the Bills from 2015 through 2017.

Sixty-six rushing touchdowns in a 38-game collegiate career. How, Devin Singletary was asked, did he manage that? “Just growing up in South Florida (Deerfield Beach), playing little league football, it’s big down there,” the former Florida Atlantic star told reporters during a conference call shortly after the Buffalo Bills made him a third-round draft pick last Frid…

Dion Dawkins would like nothing better than to begin his third season with the Buffalo Bills at left tackle, the position he has played since his rookie year in 2017. Dissatisfied with the play of the offensive line during the team’s 6-10 finish in 2018, General Manager Brandon Beane aggressively addressed that area by signing six free agents at tackle and guard. At lea…

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…

Quarterback defined the Buffalo Bills’ 2018 draft. In many ways, it defined their 2019 draft, too. Last year, the Bills were primarily focused on finding their long-term quarterback answer and traded up twice to make Josh Allen the seventh overall pick. On Thursday night, they watched as two QB-needy clubs with the Nos. 1 and 6 choices, the Arizona Cardinals and N…

The Buffalo Bills selected former University of Miami safety and special teams standout Jaquan Johnson their sixth-round draft pick Saturday. The 5-foot-10, 191-pound Johnson had a breakout season as a junior when he led the Hurricanes with 96 tackles (including three for loss) while tying for the team lead with four interceptions (returning one for a touchdown) on the …

Try as the Buffalo Bills might to temper expectations, there can be no doubting their mission. Be a winner. Now. The “process” was a nice talking point for the first couple of years of the Sean McDermott-Brandon Beane regime. It’s time to set it aside for a real discussion about becoming a real force in the AFC East. In a matter of 10 weeks, the Bills have remade …

NASHVILLE – Ed Oliver liked everything about his pre-draft visit to the Buffalo Bills. The former University of Houston standout defensive tackle was overwhelmed by the team’s new, $18 million weight room, and had nothing but positive encounters with players and coaches. In short, Oliver would be more than pleased if the Bills, who own the ninth overall pick, were to…

NASHVILLE – They were only together for one season, 2017, but it was a year Alabama’s football team won a national championship. Jonah Williams was a sophomore offensive tackle. Brian Daboll was in his only year as the Crimson Tide’s offensive coordinator. The experience went so well that Williams would relish the idea of the Buffalo Bills drafting him Thursday night…
