Star Lotulelei doesn’t appear to have much of a presence on social media. No verified Twitter account. No Facebook or Instagram. That’s probably for the best. The Buffalo Bills’ defensive tackle has taken plenty of scorn online over the last few weeks as the team’s run defense has been repeatedly gashed. “Star Lotulelei is washed up.” “Star Lotulelei has been t…

General managers around the NFL apparently didn’t get the memo that the league’s trade deadline this year doesn’t arrive until 4 p.m. Oct. 29. There have been deals aplenty dating back to the start of the regular season, with the most recent coming Tuesday when the Jacksonville Jaguars sent cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams for a pair of first-round draft …

Jerry Hughes felt like he was back in grade school. On the bus ride from Spartanburg, S.C., to Charlotte, N.C., following the Buffalo Bills’ joint practices last month with the Carolina Panthers, coach Sean McDermott made a pit stop. The entire team – 91 players, plus coaches and staff – stopped at Lemmons Farms in Gaffney, S.C. McDermott used to visit the farm regul…

A couple of weeks ago, in his own colorful way, Cole Beasley wanted to set the record straight. When a Twitter user suggest that Beasley might be “starting to realize Buffalo isn’t quite Dallas,” the Bills’ new wide receiver shot down that idea. Comparing things from a player’s perspective, Beasley tweeted back “Buffalo (expletives) on Dallas. Facilities for recovery…

Brandon Beane didn’t have a calculator with him at the podium Thursday, so the Buffalo Bills’ general manager had to ballpark the remaining amount of salary-cap space his team has. That figure has gone through plenty of changes over the past few days, as Beane agreed to contracts with eight different unrestricted free agents. Despite that flurry of activity, though, …

INDIANAPOLIS – Sean McDermott had to stop and compose himself. Seated on stage at the NFL’s Women’s Careers in Football Forum, the Buffalo Bills’ coach watched as a picture of his 10-year-old daughter, Maddie, appeared on the projector. In the photo, Maddie is dressed for her school’s career day. Her chosen occupation? Head coach of the Buffalo Bills. Dressed in a Bi…

Sean McDermott hasn’t been shy about making changes to his coaching staff during his two years leading the Buffalo Bills. The Bills have made seven changes to their coordinators or position coaches since McDermott took over. That starts with offensive coordinator Rick Dennison being fired after one year and special teams coordinator Danny Crossman being let go earlier t…

If I ever make it big one day, Josh Allen thought to himself, I’m not going to act like that guy. Growing up in Firebaugh, Calif., the Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback was a big San Francisco Giants fan. He recalled this week a moment that has shaped his approach ever since. “I won't mention his name, but there was a pitcher for the Giants. He had a fantastic game a…

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…

The end of last Sunday’s game between the Bills and Jaguars was rather anticlimactic. For the home team, that was a good thing. Bills receivers Zay Jones easily recovered an onside kick attempt by Jacksonville’s Josh Lambo, allowing his team to run out the clock in a 24-21 win. The play was forgettable — as nearly every onside kick attempt has become in the NFL. The …

We’ll know more about the Buffalo Bills’ long-term outlook in 48 hours. The NFL’s trade deadline arrives Tuesday, and there has already been a flurry of activity around the league. Receiver Amari Cooper was dealt from Oakland to Dallas for a first-round draft pick. The Giants have gone into full rebuild mode, sending defensive tackle Damon Harrison to Detroit and corner…

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…

Be like Sally. As Matt and Nicole Kabel have dealt with the waves of grief crashing over them since the death of their daughter, they’ve reminded themselves of those three simple words. Sally Noel Kabel was just 6 years old when she died at 2:01 p.m. on Sept. 19 at NYU Langone Hospital in Manhattan. Her body, ravaged by two years of intense chemotherapy treatments to…

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…

Nate Orchard's struggle was broadcast for all to see. The new Buffalo Bills' defensive end had a starring role in this season of the HBO series "Hard Knocks," which followed the Cleveland Browns through training camp. Orchard, a former second-round pick of the Browns, was a main focus of the reality show as he struggled to earn a roster spot. That struggle, and what it …
