This week's Bills Mailbag focuses on LeSean McCoy's future, the biggest remaining position of need … and my son's golf game. Let's get right to it: Jim Eimer asks: Who will be the biggest surprise cut? If you were general manager, what is a blockbuster trade you would consider — either trading away or a position of upgrade? Jay: Both answers involve LeSean McCoy. The…

The Buffalo Bills' offseason has hit its first bit of adversity. When Sean McDermott started his news conference before the team's second spring practice session, he read an injury report that sounded like it should have come in Week 7 of the regular season. The good news is it's May. There is time for those players to get healthy. The bad news is, those injured play…

The safety position enjoyed a resurgence in the NFL this offseason. Big-money deals worth potentially more than $40 million over the life of the contracts were signed by Landon Collins (Washington), Earl Thomas (Baltimore), Tyrann Mathieu (Kansas City) and LaMarcus Joyner (Oakland). Those deals come after a year in which some top free-agent safeties languished on the op…

Charles Clay's time as the Buffalo Bills' starting tight end might be coming to an end. Clay is a healthy inactive Sunday against the New England Patriots.

He failed to make a catch at the goal line in the fourth q…

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Guess who’s back, back again? Shady’s back, tell a friend. Buffalo Bills fans had that Eminem song lyric running through their heads Sunday while watching LeSean McCoy run through the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.

The Buffalo Bills took a calculated risk in releasing safety Dean Marlowe this week. Given how well Marlowe played in spot duty during the Week 5 win over Tennessee, there was at least a chance he would have caught the eye of one of the other 31 teams. When the Bills released Marlowe on Tuesday to make room for quarterback Derek Anderson, any one of those teams could ha…

The Buffalo Bills spent big this offseason on their front seven with the idea that investing there would greatly improve the run defense. Through five games in 2018, the numbers say that has happened. The Bills currently rank 12th in the NFL against the rush, allowing 96.2 yards per game. Last year, they finished 29th in the NFL, allowing 124.6 yards per game. “We ju…

Grading the Bills RUNNING GAME: A- Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll listened to the fans, and head coach Sean McDermott, as the Bills ran the ball 43 times, a season high. Although the team’s yards per carry was not dynamic – 3.3. – the offense stuck with it, and grinded out the needed yards at the end to get in position for the game-winning field goal. LeSean McCo…

What a change from a year ago at this time. The 2017 Buffalo Bills season got off to a surprising 3-1 start, capturing the attention and imagination of the team’s long-suffering fans. That hot start went a long way toward the Bills ending a 17-year playoff drought. Fast forward to today, though, and it’s a different story. The Bills have started 2018 with a 1-3 recor…

The Buffalo Bills set their roster Saturday, but hold off on calling it finalized. By cutting 34 players and trading quarterback AJ McCarron to the Oakland Raiders, the Bills went from 87 players to 52, one below the league maximum of 53 for the regular season. The Bills have until noon Sunday to submit waiver claims on players released by other teams Saturday, meaning …

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…
