Pencil is definitely the best writing tool to use when jotting down the Buffalo Bills’ depth chart at wide receiver. At any given practice, a steady shuffling with the starters takes place among the 13 receivers competing for anywhere between five and seven jobs on the 53-man roster. On Friday, it was Ray-Ray McCloud’s turn to take some reps with the first unit. McCl…

The one thing Nathan Peterman loathes talking about is the one thing he can’t escape. To the casual NFL observer, Peterman is known for one thing and one thing only. Five interceptions on 14 passes. That’s what he managed in his first career start last November for the Buffalo Bills against the Los Angeles Chargers – a performance that can safely be called one of the wo…

PITTSFORD – It’s not easy to move an NFL team 90 minutes down the Thruway. Just ask Jeff Mazurek. The Buffalo Bills’ director of equipment operations, Mazurek annually oversees the massive undertaking that is moving the team’s headquarters in Orchard Park to St. John Fisher College for training camp. “The amount of stuff, if you see it, it’s out of control for thr…

After what they went through to go see him, perhaps it’s fitting that the Buffalo Bills selected Wyoming’s Josh Allen as their next franchise quarterback. Thousands of hours of scouting went into the team’s research. So, too, did one terrifying plane ride – which General Manager Brandon Beane recently recounted. “There’s video evidence somewhere, but we were coming i…

Every tattoo on Keith Ford’s body comes with a story. The most tragic of those is three bullets on the inside of his right bicep. Each one is a constant reminder of friends gone too soon, the victims of gun violence. “People usually get tattoos just to get tattoos, but after I go through trials and tribulations in my life, I want it to leave a mark,” the Buffalo Bill…

Brandon Beane showed last summer that roster building in the NFL is never complete. The Buffalo Bills' general manager shocked the league when he traded away wide receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby in separate transactions. So plenty could still change between today and Sept. 9, when the Bills open the 2018 season in Baltimore. For now, here's a look …

Dan Morgan’s dad was a roofer. His mom was a hairstylist, running a salon out of the basement of their Philadelphia home. So hard work courses through the veins of the Buffalo Bills’ new director of player personnel. "I didn't grow up easy," Morgan said in his first interview with The Buffalo News since being hired last month. “My parents definitely taught me the wor…

Elizabeth Bova admits her Buffalo Bills fandom waned when she moved away from Western New York to Texas. She’s back home now, though, and after a recent interaction with head coach Sean McDermott, Bova will be rooting for the Bills more than ever this fall. McDermott and his wife, Jamie, paid a visit to John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital earlier this month. It was there…

One of the greatest moments of Ricky Proehl’s life is captured in an incredible photograph. Proehl's 3-year-old son, Austin, is perched atop his shoulders as he celebrates a Super Bowl victory with the St. Louis Rams on Jan. 30, 2000. Wearing a No. 87 Rams jersey that’s far too big for him and with his name on the back and with his hat turned backward, Austin is smiling…

Brandon Beane thought he had prepared for every possible scenario in last week’s NFL Draft. The Buffalo Bills’ general manager ran through situations where the team made both its first-round draft picks. He mapped out what it would look like to trade away one of those picks. He ran through hypotheticals that saw the Bills trade both second-round picks, keep them both or…

So much for that smooth start to the offseason for the Buffalo Bills. General Manager Brandon Beane’s morning coffee must have been ruined Saturday with the news that the New York Jets have moved up to the third pick in next month’s draft. That puts Buffalo’s AFC East rivals in prime position to draft a quarterback – which has been widely assumed to be the Bills’ plan. …

INDIANAPOLIS – Sean McDermott jokingly had an invitation for a reporter this week at the NFL Scouting Combine. Asked who sat in for the 15-minute interviews NFL teams can hold with up to 60 prospects during the league’s scouting combine, the Buffalo Bills’ head coach said: “Do you want to come to our meeting tonight?” Although that invitation was made in jest, McDerm…

For a playoff team, the Buffalo Bills have a long list of needs. General Manager Brandon Beane acknowledged as much last month at the Senior Bowl. “We're a long way from where we need to be,” Beane said in Mobile, Ala. “This year was setting the culture and expectations of what we need to get done.  ... We have a lot of holes to fill. We know that. We're going to do …

The Buffalo Bills’ 2017 season was barely 20 minutes old, but cornerback Leonard Johnson couldn’t help but think ahead. “I would love, love, love to come back and be a part of this team again,” the veteran cornerback said in the visiting locker room after the Bills’ 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in an AFC wild-card game last month. “Obviously, us making the play…

The Buffalo Bills will have more spending power in 2018. Since taking over in May, General Manager Brandon Beane has gone to work on cleaning up the mess that was the Bills’ salary cap. “We made some headway this year with the cap to be able to roll over a decent amount of money, which will help,” Beane told reporters last month at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala. “We…
