This is the third part of a series looking at 10 questions facing the Bills entering training camp, which begins July 25. Today’s question: Is LeSean McCoy still the man at running back? Brandon Beane did his best to get out in front of the question before it even could be asked. Minutes after the Buffalo Bills’ general manager selected Florida Atlantic running back …

T.J. Yeldon entered the NFL with great expectations. He was a college star at Alabama, ranking fifth on the program’s all-time rushing yardage list, with 3,322, and became the third running back chosen in 2015 when the Jacksonville Jaguars used the 36th overall selection in the second round on him. After four years, though, it’s fair to say Yeldon hasn’t quite lived …

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.

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 got an early start on their summer Thursday. Head coach Sean McDermott canceled the team’s final practice of mandatory minicamp and instead hosted a field day inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center. “I’ve been encouraged with the participation, with the attitude, with the work ethic,” McDermott said Monday. “The guys are coming together.” That’s…

Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it. Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander figures to immediately step into that role, but he’s already announced the 2019 season will be his last. That means the Bills will be looking for another defensive player to emerge. As…

NFL teams usually dread the period between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp. It’s a time when players return home, unwind, and sometimes find themselves in trouble. The Buffalo Bills didn’t have to wait for that period to start next month, though, as trouble found rookie linebacker Tyrel Dodson last weekend. Dodson was arrested in Scottsdale, Ariz.,…

Props to you, the readers, for providing some great questions this week in the Bills Mailbag. A programming note: If yours didn't make it this week, I've got it saved for next week. Let's get to it ... Viva Los Bills #PonchoPower asks: What returning starter from last season is the most likely not to make the team in 2019? Jay: First of all, well done on the name.…

It was a (checks calendar) chilly start to rookie minicamp Friday for The Buffalo News. A total of 54 drafted rookies, undrafted free-agent signings, first-year veterans and tryout players practiced outside on the grass fields at One Bills Drive on a day that felt more like November than May. Enough of my complaining, though, let's get to this week's mailbag ... Nick…

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…

Here are how some national analysts grade the Bills' picks thus far. Luke Easterling, Draft Wire: Overall grade: A Love what the Bills have done overall thus far. Oliver was the No. 3 overall prospect on my board, so landing him at No. 9…

Defense wasn't the problem on last year's Bills. It was the offense that struggled for much of the season. In the first round of the draft, the Bills made a move to help ensure their defense stays top-notch. But Day 2 was devoted to offense. The Bills made three picks in Rounds 2 and 3 on Friday, and all three selections were aimed at helping Josh Allen's offense imp…

"Trader" Beane lived up to his moniker Friday night. Buffalo Bills General Manager Brandon Beane swung his second trade of the second day of the NFL Draft, acquiring the 96th overall selection in the third round from Washington. With the pick, the Bills drafted Ole Miss tight end Dawson Knox. To move up, Beane sent the Redskins both of Buffalo's fourth-round picks, Nos.…

Here are five things to know about the Buffalo Bills third-round selection Devin Singletary from Florida Atlantic University. 1. He set records in college – a lot of them. Singletary is the Florida Atlantic career leader in yards from scrimmage with 4,289, passing Alfred Morris (3,529). He also holds the single-season rushing record with 1,920 yards, again topping Morri…
