Leslie Frazier’s reaction wasn’t much different than that of Buffalo Bills fans when the team drafted Ed Oliver last month. “A lot of high fives in the defensive meeting room when he was there at No. 9,” the Bills’ defensive coordinator said Monday with a wide smile. “It was great for us.” Like everyone else, Frazier wasn’t sure Oliver, the Houston defensive tackle, …

Ed Oliver had to repeat the question before answering.

I think Kyle Williams will wear a gold jacket one day. I just want to come in and compete and help the team in any way possible. I don't even think about that. …

Leslie Frazier owns two Super Bowl rings – one as a cornerback with the 1985 Chicago Bears and one as an assistant coach with the 2006 Indianapolis Colts.

And Frazier will t…

A warm meal is always welcome on a cold, blustery Buffalo winter day. For about 100 Western New Yorkers who visit the Buffalo City Mission, that meal happened to be served up Wednesday by several members of the Buffalo Bills' coaching staff.

The Buffalo Bills’ front office and coaching staff has been consistent – LeSean McCoy is part of the plan for 2019. General Manager Brandon Beane confirmed that again Monday. “You saw some plays he still made yesterday. I think if we can improve in other areas, that will help LeSean,” Beane said. “Early in the year, our pass game was not very good. You could see it. Tea…

LeSean McCoy got a huge hole – a rarity this…
