The Carolina-to-Buffalo pipeline could deliver again. The Bills hosted tight end Greg Olsen on a free-agent visit in the last few days. Olsen, 34, was recently by the Carolina Panthers, but has generated plenty of interest on the open market. In addition to the Bills, he’s also planning visits to the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks. We saw last year when the…

This week’s Bills Mailbag naturally highlights Super Bowl LIV, starting with the question: Who should Bills fans root for? It also includes plenty of draft and free agency chatter. Let’s get right to it. Luigi Mike Speranza asks: Everyone I know is rooting for the Chiefs for former Bills players and AFC representation. I say root for the 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo for MV…

MIAMI – LeSean McCoy is adjusting to a new role in his NFL career. That of role player. The former Buffalo Bills’ running back has made it to his first Super Bowl as a member of the Kansas City Chiefs, but his on-field contributions have been minimal during the postseason. McCoy was inactive for the Chiefs’ victory over the Tennessee Titans in the AFC championship ga…

A look at the playing time for the Buffalo Bills in their playoff loss to the Houston Texans provides a reason to believe the team’s future is bright. The team’s first four drafted rookies from 2019 all played key roles.

Whenever Andre Reed is around Ed Oliver or Josh Allen or pretty much any current Buffalo Bills player, he knows it's a virtual certainty they'll ask him to reach into the team's past. What were those Super Bowl seasons like? How did those teams get to that level? Why were you able to stay so good for so long? "So I can bring a little bit of that to the team now," Ree…

The Buffalo Bills’ progress in 2019 can be summarized with one simple set of numbers: 6-10 to 10-6. A four-win improvement from the previous season and a second playoff berth in three years are signs that the Bills are headed in the right direction. As coach Sean McDermott correctly pointed out in his season-ending press conference, though, being pointed in the right…

Watching the Sabres on Thursday night, I was left with one thought: The Sabres are wasting Jack Eichel's prime. Eichel is an MVP candidate this year, and it's not going to mean a thing. Maybe his best years are still to come, which is a scary thought for the league, but do you have confidence in the Sabres getting it together any time soon? Eichel turns 24 next year.…

Frank Gore’s impact on the Buffalo Bills figures to be felt long after his time on the playing field is finished. The veteran running back’s future is up in the air after the Bills were eliminated Saturday from the AFC playoffs.

The wounds of Saturday’s loss were still fresh Sunday morning for the Buffalo Bills. Life goes on, though, and that meant the realization of what’s to come – a long offseason, with plenty of time to stew over a 22-19 overtime loss to the Houston Texans in an AFC wild-card playoff game – started to sink in. “There's nothing you can really do to ease that kind of pain,…

HOUSTON – Grading the Bills in their 22-19 overtime loss to the Texans on Saturday at NRG Stadium … Running game: B Only 13 carries for rookie running back Devin Singletary will be questioned during the offseason.

The Buffalo Bills ended another long drought Friday. Cornerback Tre’Davious White was named a first-team All-Pro, becoming the first Bills player to do so since defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and defensive end Mario Williams were on the team in 2014. White, in his third season, was selected to the first team along with the New England Patriots' Stephon Gilmore. Gilm…

Analysis

When the Bills run: Rookie running back Devin Singletary should be fresh after getting last week off. He’ll face a Texans run defense that allowed 121.1 yards per game and 4.81 yards per rush. Those totals ranked 25th and 27th, respectively, in the NFL and are largely built on strong play early in the year. The key to beating the Texans on the ground is to get to the ed…

Mitch Morse had an interesting description of Brian Daboll this week. The Buffalo Bills’ center was asked about the idea that the team's only true identity on offense is that they don’t have an identity, and what that says about the coordinator. “I think it says he's somewhat of a lunatic, you know what I mean?” Morse said. Um, not exactly. That requires a little …
