Welcome to the NFL’s true offseason. The six weeks between the end of spring practices and the start of training camp is the only slow spot on the league’s calendar.

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…

In January, Jay Skurski wrote that "there should be a parade down Delaware Avenue" if Josh Allen throws 26 touchdown passes in 2019. A reader followed up in this week's mailbag, asking Skurski if he still feels the same way. "OK, maybe not a parade down Delaware," Skurski wrote. "How about a lawn fete in Blasdell? Seriously, though, if Allen increases his touchdown pass…

Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it.
