Jordan Poyer had a message for Josh Allen on Wednesday. After the Buffalo Bills’ safety knocked down a pass in the end zone from the team’s second-year quarterback, Poyer yelled “don’t do that, Josh.” It wasn’t exactly clear whether Poyer meant don't attempt that throw against him, or in general. What was clear, though, is that the competition level for a June min…

Matt Milano doesn’t want to think about the gruesome dislocated ankle and fractured fibula that ended his second season in the NFL. He’d rather forget about that Week 14, fourth-quarter play with 1:38 on the clock, when the New York Jets faced third-and-goal from the 4-yard line and the Buffalo Bills were still clinging to a 23-20 lead, that moment when Sam Darnold was …

The Buffalo Bills' offseason has hit its first bit of adversity. When Sean McDermott started his news conference before the team's second spring practice session, he read an injury report that sounded like it should have come in Week 7 of the regular season. The good news is it's May. There is time for those players to get healthy. The bad news is, those injured play…

Hughes was acquired from the Indianapolis Colts on April 30, 2013, for linebacker Kelvin Sheppard, whom the Bills had selected in the third round in 2011.

The Buffalo Bills have made certain that Jerry Hughes, their best pass-rusher, isn't going anywhere for awhile. With Hughes due to become a free agent after the 2019 season, the Bills made what they felt was a necessary pre-emptive move Tuesday by signing the veteran defensive end to a two-year contract extension worth a reported $23 million. "In my tenure here, he's…

It was a (checks calendar) chilly start to rookie minicamp Friday for The Buffalo News. A total of 54 drafted rookies, undrafted free-agent signings, first-year veterans and tryout players practiced outside on the grass fields at One Bills Drive on a day that felt more like November than May. Enough of my complaining, though, let's get to this week's mailbag ... Nick…

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane can satisfy two major objectives in this week’s NFL draft – adhere to his philosophy to select the best player available, and address one of the team’s biggest needs – by using a first-round pick on a defensive end. “It’s nice when you still fill a need,” Beane said. The Bills have 10 draft picks, including the No. 9 overal…

Quarterback once again will be critical for the Buffalo Bills’ draft plans. Only this year, instead of hoping the right quarterback fell to them, the Bills will be rooting for quarterbacks to be chosen ahead of them. With Josh Allen in place, the Bills don’t need a quarterback, but could go in several directions with their first-round draft pick, scheduled for No. 9 ove…

So far, the Buffalo Bills' offseason has been dominated by a move they didn't make. The team's reported interest in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers for star receiver Antonio Brown never came to be, but it was a clear sign that General Manager Brandon Beane will be aggressive in trying to build talent around quarterback Josh Allen. Beane gets the chance to do tha…
