The Buffalo Bills got robbed. Members of the Pro Football Writers of America voted recently for its yearly awards, one of which is the Pete Rozelle Award, which is given to an “NFL club public relations staff that consistently strives for excellence in its dealings and relationships with the media.” This year’s winner was the Minnesota Vikings. The Bills were one of …

All that remains are three minicamp practices before the Buffalo Bills head out for summer vacation. Next week's mandatory sessions will wrap up the team's spring. Coach Sean McDermott has used the practice time reporters have been able to view to mix and match plenty with his lineups. There are wide-open competitions at quarterback, wide receiver, interior offensive li…

Rod Streater was in the middle of the type of training camp that earns an NFL player a job. The Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver consistently turned heads last summer, making at least one catch per practice that made observers take note. One misstep, though, was all it took to end Streater’s 2017 season before it ever got off the ground. Streater dislocated the big toe o…

I'm leading this week's Mailbag with a weather question that was debated in the Bills' media room: How many days a year is it nicer in Buffalo than Atlanta? Now, if you love hot, humid conditions, the answer would be close to 0. But if you can't stand the heat, what is it? You could look at the average number of days with a room temperature of about 72 to get a prett…

Attention nail-biting Buffalo football fans: There was some good news on the Bills' anxiety-inducing wide receiver front this week. Kelvin Benjamin was looking fit and participating fully at the Bills' organized team activity workouts. Yes, that's worthy of a sigh of relief. Benjamin is coming off early February surgery on a torn meniscus in his right knee. "I …

Here are the highlights from Bills coach Sean McDermott's meeting with reporters Thursday: Bills wide receiver Zay Jones had knee surgery last week and will miss the remainder of the spring practice sessions, coach Sean McDermott said Thursday. McDermott said "at this point" he does not believe that Jones' 2018 season is in doubt. McDermott did not want to comment …

At least on one side of the ball, the Buffalo Bills will have some stability in 2018. Coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier will enter Year 2 with their scheme, which is a welcome change after years of players continually being forced to learn new defenses. The story isn't the same on offense, which will have its fourth offensive coordinator in t…

Brandon Beane felt compelled to apologize to Brian Daboll. The Buffalo Bills’ general manager intended to get the team’s offensive coordinator some more help during last week’s NFL Draft. After taking quarterback Josh Allen with the seventh overall selection, however, each of Beane’s next four picks played defense. "We had to trust the board,” Beane said Monday durin…

Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott were largely silent Monday about Richie Incognito. The Buffalo Bills' general manager and coach largely sidestepped any questions about the team's former left guard, who announced his retirement last week. "Um, you know, not going to really get into detail," Beane said. "Richie's on the reserve/retired list, which is not a part of our…

Consider this my official plea to the NFL: Please, move the draft up at least two weeks on the calendar. Perhaps the pre-draft process just feels like it's dragging more than usual this year because of the buzz around the Buffalo Bills' plans, but I'm ready for the picks to start being made. I've read more mock drafts and scouting reports than I  care to admit. With …

Maybe it's just the endless winter, but it feels like the NFL Draft is taking even longer to get here this year than usual. Or it could be the endless hype/speculation over what the Buffalo Bills will do when it arrives. The possibility of adding a franchise quarterback has been analyzed in every conceivable way, but that won't stop us from debating it over another mont…

The signings have slowed to a trickle around the NFL. 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. General Manager Brandon Beane added depth to the offensive line with the signings of former Bengals center Russell Bodine and former Raiders right tac…

Bills

Year One of the Brandon Beane-Sean McDermott pairing in Buffalo was a leap in the right direction. The Buffalo Bills ended an embarrassing 17-year playoff drought under the leadership of their general manager and head coach. If nothing else, that bought them a longer rope among the team’s passionate fan base. Their work is far from done, though. The end goal, of cour…

Bills

INDIANAPOLIS – Three key members of the Buffalo Bills have received positive medical reports as they recover from surgery. Coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine that left tackle Cordy Glenn and wide receivers Zay Jones and Kelvin Benjamin "look like they're on schedule" in their respective recoveries. "I'm anxious to get those guys going," M…

The Buffalo Bills' passing offense was not quite as bad in 2017 as it was during the J.P. Losman and Trent Edwards eras. That's the most upbeat spin we can come up with in assessing the Bills' ability to throw the ball this year. It's remarkable the Bills made the playoffs in spite of the pass offense, given some ignominious lows it hit, such as: The Bills 176.6…
