This is the second in a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 25 start of training camp. The Buffalo Bills have an overabundance of running backs heading into the start of training camp. Last year’s starter, LeSean McCoy, is back for what could be his final season with the Bills. His contract expires after this year. He’s joined by a…

Running back might now be less of a draft need for the Buffalo Bills. That's because the team announced a two-year contract agreement with running back T.J. Yeldon on Monday. Yeldon, 25, is a former second-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2015 who spent the first four years of his career in Jacksonville. In 51 career games, the Alabama product started 30 of those and …

When the Buffalo Bills added veteran running back Frank Gore this winter, it gave them one of the oldest but most-accomplished backfields in history. Gore, LeSean McCoy and Chris Ivory combined for over 30,000 rushing yards, which has likely never been matched in NFL history. But opening a season with a backfield of three 30-plus runners (four if you count fullback Patr…

Bills

With the signing of running back Frank Gore, the Bills are planning to release Chris Ivory, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The Bills have not commented on the report. Releasing Ivory would save the team $2.15 million against the 2019 salary cap and will cost $750,000 in dead cap money. Ivory averaged just 3.3 yards per carry on 115 rushes last season, and has …

What a difference six months has made for the Buffalo Bills’ offense. With a flurry of activity over the last two days, the team added protection and weapons for young quarterback Josh Allen – which was the stated goal at the start of the offseason. Those moves – signing offensive linemen Mitch Morse, Jon Feliciano and Ty Nsekhe, tight end Tyler Kroft, running back Fran…

Bills

The Bills agreed to terms with several players Monday as the NFL's "legal tampering" window opened, granting teams permission to negotiate with unrestricted free agents two days before the league year begins on Wednesday. The most curious addition was running back Frank Gore, who will be a shoo-in Hall of Famer but is well past the prime of his career. Gore is a good gu…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills are adding some experience to a position group that already has plenty of it. According to a report Monday from ESPN's Adam Schefter, veteran running back Frank Gore has agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract that will become official when the new NFL league year begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday. The team has not yet confirmed the move. Gore will turn …

This week's Mailbag leads with an attempt at answering a popular question among Bills fans: How many ex-Panthers are too many? It also touches on free agency, the potential throw-off between Josh Allen and Patrick Mahomes and the idea of pursuing Kareem Hunt. Let's get to it ... Valar Morghulis asks: Do you think it’s a concern that the Bills go after so many Panthers p…

Analysis

Sean McDermott was asked Monday during his season-ending press conference if it was fair to grade his team on a curve, given the youth of the roster and the salary cap situation heading into the year. “I understand where you’re coming from with that and I’m more concerned right now with the direction of the organization, the direction of our football team,” the Buffalo …

Grading the Buffalo Bills RUNNING GAME: B+ Once again it was rookie quarterback Josh Allen leading the way. He finished with nine carries for 95 yards. That might not be a long-term strategy for success, but it worked Sunday. Allen is something to watch when he gets in the open field. His 30-yard touchdown run looked easy. LeSean McCoy got a huge hole – a rarity this…

Bills

Josh Allen stayed on brand Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback dazzled at times against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. He also sprinkled in a few head-scratching moments. First, the good. Allen broke the Bills’ single-season franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback with a 35-yard gain in the third quarter. He finished with nine carries for …

Bills

Tight end Charles Clay and running back Chris Ivory are back in the lineup as the Buffalo Bills close out the 2018 season Sunday at New Era Field against the Miami Dolphins. Clay was a healthy inactive last week against New England, calling into question his future with the team, while Ivory has missed the last two weeks because of a shoulder injury. With Ivory back in …

Bills

A season of firsts will end Sunday for Josh Allen with the Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback having one more new experience: Facing a defense for the second time. An elbow injury knocked Allen out of the Bills’ first game against both the New England Patriots and New York Jets, meaning the Week 17 visit by the Miami Dolphins will be the first time Allen will see the sam…

Bills

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: F A non-factor all game. LeSean McCoy had six carries for 9 yards. His future with the Bills is looking cloudier with each passing week. McCoy rarely had room to run, which starts with his offensive line. Still, he doesn’t look like the same dominant player he’s long been. It says something when McCoy has a game like he did and undraft…
