This week’s Bills Mailbag leads with the phenomenon that Christian Wade is becoming. It also hits on the crowded competition at wide receiver, Tyree Jackson’s chances of making the practice squad, whether it's time to start worrying about Stephen Hauschka and plenty more. Let’s get right to it … @BigD50786709 asks: Why does everyone say Christian Wade can’t make the tea…

For as long as he can remember, Darryl Johnson Jr. has gone by “Bam.” The Buffalo Bills’ rookie defensive end earned the nickname from his parents, Marsha and Darryl Sr., after "The Flintstones" character Bamm-Bamm Rubble, because he had a tendency to slam his toys on the ground. Two decades later, the nickname still fits, but for a different reason. Bamm-Bamm was fa…

PITTSFORD – Here are my top takeaways from Day 6 of Buffalo Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College. 1. Injuries starting to take their toll. Coach Sean McDermott started his press conference Wednesday by announcing that center Mitch Morse is in the NFL’s concussion protocol. Morse was given a veteran rest day Sunday, followed by a day off Monday. It raised some …

The Buffalo Bills added some competition to their roster at defensive end Wednesday ahead of the NFL draft. The team announced a one-year contract with former Detroit Lion Eli Harold. A 6-foot-3-inch, 243-pounder, Harold spent the first three seasons of his pro career with the San Francisco 49ers before spending last season with the Lions. He entered the NFL as a third-…

The Buffalo Bills announced Tuesday they have re-signed defensive end Eddie Yarbrough, who had been an exclusive rights free agent, to a one-year contract. Yarbrough finished last season, his second with the Bills, with 21 tackles, giving him 44 for his two-year career. He registered a career-high two tackles for loss against the Chicago Bears in Week 9 of the 2018 seas…

The Buffalo Bills will have continuity in one key special-teams role in 2019. Long snapper Reid Ferguson, who has appeared in all 32 games over the past two seasons, tweeted Thursday that he’ll be back next year. Ferguson was scheduled to be an exclusive-rights free agent. Ferguson worked with three different punters during the 2018 season, which was not a good o…

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 …

Analysis

If there was any doubt about Charles Clay’s future with the Buffalo Bills, it was eliminated Sunday. By making their starting tight end a healthy inactive against the New England Patriots, the Bills sent a clear message that Clay isn’t long for Buffalo. “Just coach's decision,” coach Sean McDermott said. “Production and looking at young guys. When you have opportunit…

Something’s wrong with the New England Patriots. Heard that one before? This time, it’s for real, a legitimate cause for panic from their fans and glee from their legion of haters. Sound familiar? After watching the Pats lose the past two weeks, critics have pounced with a ferocity that has seemingly reached epic proportions. Media types have pumped up the volume on tal…

Eddie Yarbrough thought he knew what it meant to be determined while following his long-shot path to becoming a defensive end for the Buffalo Bills. Undrafted free-agent signee with the Denver Broncos in 2016 after a standout career at Wyoming. Cut at the end of the preseason. Brief, non-playing stint with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. Free-agent…

Analysis

The Buffalo Bills’ season took a turn in Week 9. A 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears at New Era Field dropped the team to 2-7 and made it abundantly clear that a second straight trip to the postseason was highly unlikely. In the days that followed, the team’s focus shifted. The plug was mercifully pulled on the Nathan Peterman Project. More than that, though, a youth mo…

Grading the Buffalo Bills RUNNING GAME: A- Quarterback Josh Allen’s running ability continues to impress. He broke the franchise record he set last week with 135 yards on just nine attempts. Allen showed good judgement, too, in knowing when to slide or duck out of bounds. Running back LeSean McCoy had 52 yards, but needed 15 carries to get that total – an average of …

Latest Bills

The Buffalo Bills haven’t been shy about pointing out that young players have been getting a lot of work for them in 2018. Coach Sean McDermott mentions it weekly. According to the team’s media-relations department, the Bills rank fourth in the NFL with 33.8 percent of their offensive and defensive snaps being taken by rookies or second-year players. At times this se…

Shaq Lawson might not ever become the type of game-changing defensive end the Buffalo Bills’ previous front office thought it was getting when it chose him in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft. That doesn’t mean he’s not a contributor, though. Lawson has carved out a role as a rotational defensive lineman, seeing time at both end and tackle this year. His playing ti…

Words have turned into actions for the Buffalo Bills. A little more than a year ago, a team meeting was called the night before a home game against the Denver Broncos. The push for social-justice reform had never been stronger in the league, spurred on by President Donald Trump’s inciteful comments about players who protested during the national anthem. Team owners T…
