When the Baltimore Ravens visit the Buffalo Bills on Sunday at New Era Field, it will be the second time Josh Allen and Lamar Jackson have opposed each other as NFL quarterbacks. It’s forgivable if you’re forgetting the first. Allow us to refresh your memory: Allen and the Bills opened the 2018 season in Baltimore. It was a game all involved on the Buffalo side would…

Guard John Miller, who started 15 games last season for the Bills, has agreed to a three-year deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, according to multiple reports. Miller's deal is valued at $16.5 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. A third-round draft pick in 2015, Miller played in 47 games with the Bills and started all 16 in 2016. He started the first four g…

As the Bills entered the 2018 season, just 12 players remained from the 2016 roster, built by former General Manager Doug Whaley and ex-coach Rex Ryan. Just three players from the years 2010 to 2016 who were "drafted by Whaley" while he was GM or the right-hand man to Buddy Nix were still on the team at the start of 2018 – John Miller, Shaq Lawson and Adolphus Washington. …

This is the next piece in a series analyzing the Bills' most significant questions entering the offseason. Part 5: What could the offensive line look like next year? Whether Dion Dawkins lines up at left or right tackle next season is a critical decision, but it may be the least of the Bills’ problems when it comes to addressing the offensive line. Buffalo could have…

Welcome to the mailbag. This week, we're tackling the future of Thomas Davis, comparing the two Duke Williams, debating Shaq Lawson's future and projecting the number of trades the Bills will swing. Let's get to it ... Rick McGuire asks: Any chance the Bills sign former Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis? Seems to me he could be a great teacher/mentor for the younger guys…

Analysis

Brandon Beane’s perfect world involves re-signing his own free agents. We live in an imperfect world, though, so it remains to be seen whether the Buffalo Bills’ third-year general manager stands by that between now and March. The Bills have eight pending unrestricted free agents, which is a big change from last year, when Beane had 18 pending unrestricted free agent…

Logan Thomas carried a basketball as he walked through the Buffalo Bills’ locker room Monday. He was about to place it in a cardboard box, along with other personal belongings. “It helps keep things light around here,” the Bills’ tight end said. “Half the locker room played basketball at some point in their life.” Thomas had taken over being the team’s keeper of the bask…

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…

There’s always a connection to Buffalo. My family’s favorite Christmas song is “Do You Hear What I Hear?” Specifically, Vanessa Williams’ version. Williams and her husband, Jim — a Depew native — are big Bills fans. With that in mind, here’s this weeks’ Christmas-inspired Bills Mailbag … Sam Ruggiero asks: Which beloved Bills career will finally melt away next sea…

Lorenzo Alexander is 35 years old. That fact continues to blow the minds of his teammates on the Buffalo Bills’ defense. “Zo's a beast. Everything he does for us, especially at his age, man, this dude is a beast,” safety Micah Hyde said. On Sunday, that included stepping into a new role. With Matt Milano out for the season because of a broken fibula, Alexander played…

Sometimes, when Buffalo Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll calls for a scramble drill in practice, the offensive linemen have no clue it’s coming. It’s Daboll’s way of creating as close to a genuine feel as possible for the many helter-skelter runs that rookie Josh Allen has made in piling up 335 yards in the last three games. “He might just tell Josh to scramble, …

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…

A jam-packed Bills Mailbag this week, so without further ado ... Rick McGuire asks: It looks like the Jets will have about $106 million and the Bills $92 million available for free agency in 2019. I know money talks, but could you see players signing with Buffalo over New York for less because of the direction the team is headed, or will the “Big Apple” city life be mor…
