When the Bills run: So long, LeSean McCoy. The Bills opted to go with Frank Gore, Devin Singletary and T.J. Yeldon. Here’s a hunch: Gore is the starter, perhaps for the entire season, but Singletary ends up with the most carries. Sending a message to the rookie that just because McCoy was released doesn’t make the job yours just seems like a Sean McDermott thing to do. Sin…

PITTSFORD – The Buffalo Bills didn’t have to look far for their newest offensive lineman. The team announced before the start of Tuesday’s final practice of training camp at St. John Fisher College that it signed offensive tackle Jarron Jones, a Rochester native who played in high school for Aquinas. Jones had actually been in Rochester over the weekend for the Park …

This week's Bills Mailbag focuses on LeSean McCoy's future, the biggest remaining position of need … and my son's golf game. Let's get right to it: Jim Eimer asks: Who will be the biggest surprise cut? If you were general manager, what is a blockbuster trade you would consider — either trading away or a position of upgrade? Jay: Both answers involve LeSean McCoy. The…

The Buffalo Bills took what could at least be viewed as a small step toward addressing their biggest area of need Tuesday by signing free-agent center/guard Spencer Long to a three-year contract. The deal is worth $13 million that could increase to $15 million with playing time incentives, according to CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora. Long, 28, spent the 2018…

Analysis

Here’s what Sean McDermott had to say a week ago, after his team was penalized 13 times for 80 yards in a victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. “We can’t ignore those. Whether they’re accurate or not accurate, that’s for another time, but we can’t ignore that and expect to win games going forward. Good football teams don’t beat themselves, and we had opportunities to c…

The film review backed up the eyeball test for Josh Allen. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback returned to the lineup Sunday after a four-game absence because of a sprained throwing elbow. Although his passing statistics weren’t overwhelming – 8 of 19, 160 yards, one touchdown – he was the Bills’ leading rusher (13 carries for 99 yards and a touchdown) in a 24-21 win …

Matt Milano has a simple philosophy to playing defense: Always be around the ball, and good things will happen. The results show the Buffalo Bills’ second-year linebacker is on to something. Milano had another interception in Sunday’s 24-21 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field. That gives him three on the season, which is tied for the NFL lead among lineba…

The Buffalo Bills were on the ropes, but they fought back Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field. A massive brawl erupted late in the third quarter Sunday, with the end result benefiting the home team in a 24-21 win. Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette started throwing punches at Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson, who returned the favor. That led to b…

Bills

Leslie Frazier was upfront about why the Buffalo Bills started Ryan Lewis at cornerback Sunday. “I don’t know if it was anything (he did) in practice,” the team’s defensive coordinator said. “Some of it had to do with the injury to Phillip Gaines. I mean, that had a lot to do with it.” Whatever the reason, the Bills had to be pleased with what they got from Lewis in …

CHICAGO – Gamesmanship apparently never stops for Sean McDermott. The Buffalo Bills’ head coach elected not to announce a starting lineup before Thursday’s preseason finale against the Bears at Soldier Field. What’s more, the Bills didn’t provide a list of those who would not play at all. For comparison, the Bears listed 37 players who would sit out the game. That’s …

Bills

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…

The Buffalo Bills made official one-year contracts with their four exclusive-rights free agents Monday. Tight ends Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas, cornerback Lafayette Pitts and defensive end Eddie Yarbrough all signed their offers prior to the start of the team's offseason conditioning program. Exclusive-rights free agents are those whose contracts have expired and w…

NFL teams and player agents can stop their ruse now. Both sides no longer have to pretend they haven’t been talking about impending free agents for weeks. That’s because the league’s “legal tampering” period is now open. Ignoring the absurdity of that phrase, here’s what that means, directly from the NFL’s official language: “Clubs are permitted to contact, and enter…

Bills

A free agent who's not really "free." In a sentence, that's the best way to describe what an "exclusive rights" free agent is in the NFL. The Buffalo Bills have four players who fall into that category this offseason – tight ends Nick O'Leary and Logan Thomas, cornerback Lafayette Pitts and defensive end Eddie Yarbrough. An exclusive rights free agent is a player who…
