If you see Brandon Beane on Wednesday, wish him a happy anniversary. The Buffalo Bills’ general manager has been on the job for exactly a year. Plenty has changed in the last 365 days with Beane in charge. Just 27 players (not including injured center Eric Wood) on the team's current roster were with the team a year ago. Beane has swung 11 trades since taking over as ge…

Editor's note: News Bills writers Jay Skurski and Vic Carucci have taken opposing views on the Bills' potential draft strategy. Here, Skurski argues that the time is now to sell the farm to get a franchise quarterback. Carucci argues the Bills have too many holes to fill to give up too much for a quarterback. The Buffalo Bills haven’t come this far to turn back now. …

The Buffalo Bills gave Dion Dawkins one heck of a vote of confidence Monday afternoon.

The timing of the decision to trade left tackle Cordy Glenn is significant, given the salary cap ramifications. Glenn signed a five-year, $60 million contract in 2016.

NFL teams and player agents can stop their ruse now. Both sides no longer have to pretend they haven’t been talking about impending free agents for weeks. That’s because the league’s “legal tampering” period is now open.
