The Buffalo Bills still have the least homegrown roster in the NFL in 2018. As of opening day, 19 of the 53 players on the Bills roster were players they drafted or signed out of college.

Even the one time the Buffalo Bills did sack Joe Flacco on Sunday was a bit of a disappointment. With the Baltimore Ravens leading 17-0 early in the second quarter, Flacco dropped back to pass. Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes came racing into the backfield, and looked to have a free shot on Flacco. Instead of taking down the Ravens’ quarterback, however, Hughes whiffed…

The Bills limited the Carolina Panthers to just 53 yards on 26 car…

When he erupts into a fit of rage that makes yellow flags fly, Jerry Hughes momentarily ceases to exist. He doesn't merely take on a different personality from the one who, off the field, can be disarming and even utterly charming.

Eddie Yarbrough does not have the element of surprise working for him this season. The Buffalo Bills’ second-year defensive end was an unknown at training camp in 2017 but played his way into a spot on the 53-man roster. From there, Yarbrough appeared in all 16 games, starting six, and finished with 34 tackles, one sack and two passes defensed. That production was en…

Remember when Mario Williams made his visit to Buffalo Bills as a free agent and the weather was incredible? I've been thinking about that a lot this week, as the Bills bring some of the draft's top prospects to town for visits.

After a frantic first week of free agency, most of the headline-grabbing moves have been made, but as the Buffalo Bills showed Monday, there is always work to be done.

The Buffalo Bills waited patiently, then pounced. As teams around the NFL struck deals with veteran quarterbacks Tuesday, the Bills stayed on the sidelines. When the NFL's new league year opened at 4 p.m. Wednesday, the team still wasn't in the game. Then, just before 7:30 p.m., General Manager Brandon Beane made his move. At that time, the Bills announced a two-year…
