Even the one time the Buffalo Bills did sack Joe Flacco on Sunday was a bit of a disappointment. With the Baltimore Ravens leading 17-0 early in the second quarter, Flacco dropped back to pass. Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes came racing into the backfield, and looked to have a free shot on Flacco. Instead of taking down the Ravens’ quarterback, however, Hughes whiffed…

No room for any extended introductions to the mailbag this week. With the season opener on tap, we're loaded with questions. Let's get to them ... Jimmy Zolnowski asks: Other than Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmonds, who are the young guys the Bills want to build around? Jay: We shouldn’t limit this to only rookies, although the two Jimmy mentioned are at the top of the …

Quarterbacks, as you might have predicted, are a popular topic in this week’s Bills Mailbag. Here, for example, are four questions generated after Buffalo’s 19-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. Joey D. asks: Gotta be Josh Allen with the start next game. Gotta see him with the ‘ones.’ Thoughts? Brad Hesch asks: Is Josh Allen…

1. AJ McCarron’s turn with the starters. We’re assuming this, but it would make sense given the rotation the team has used throughout training camp. All of the quarterbacks played well in the preseason opener, meaning the competition to be the starter remains wide open. McCarron can make his case with a strong showing against a Cleveland team that has a pair of good pass r…

PITTSFORD — Brian Daboll demands a lot from his tight ends. The Buffalo Bills' offensive coordinator previously coached the position, and expects his players to be able to perform as blockers and pass catchers. "Those guys have to understand all of it," Daboll said Monday. "It never seems like there's enough meeting time for tight ends, because you're pulling half th…

PITTSFORD — There will be no pitch count for LeSean McCoy in 2018. "I think I answered that question last year with 'whatever we need to do to win games, that's what we'll do,' "  Bills coach Sean McDermott said Sunday as the team returned to practice at St. John Fisher College. It's been a common occurrence for McCoy to look like the best player on the field during …

PITTSFORD – If you’re of the belief training camp doesn’t really start until the first fight, it began Sunday for the Buffalo Bills. A brief, heated skirmish broke out at St. John Fisher College after right tackle Jordan Mills and defensive end Jerry Hughes got into it. Players from both the offense and defense quickly converged, and at least a few punches were thrown f…

Two dreaded words frequently come to mind when talking about Logan Thomas: On paper. The Buffalo Bills’ tight end has measurables that scream mismatch. At 6-foot-6 and 250 pounds, Thomas is the physical prototype for his position. There’s also his 4.6 40 time. On paper, however, did not translate on to the field last season for Thomas, who finished with just seven ca…

Solid, but not spectacular would be a good way to describe Charles Clay’s first three seasons in Buffalo. The Bills lured Clay away from the Miami Dolphins after the 2014 season with a five-year contract worth up to $38 million that still ranks eighth in average annual value three years after it was signed. The return on that investment for Buffalo has been only so-so. …

Rookie quarterback Josh Allen continued to see some time with the starting offense Wednesday on the second day of the Buffalo Bills’ mandatory minicamp. The first 11-on-11 session during practice was a red-zone segment. Allen’s first pass was knocked down, and he scrambled on the next play. He made an impressive touchdown throw on the offense’s third snap, throwing a ro…

Five players did not take part in the opening day of Bills mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, coach Sean McDermott said. Wide receiver Zay Jones and tight end Logan Thomas are out all spring after recent knee surgeries. Linebacker Matt Milano is "dealing with a little bit of a hamstring," McDermott said. Wide receiver Malachi Dupre also has a hamstring issue. Defensive t…

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…

Here's a great bar conversation to have, courtesy of a tweet from NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah on Friday. "The 2011 NFL Draft class should be a documentary one day," Jeremiah wrote on Twitter. "Seven of the top 11 picks will be Hall of Famers. Cam Newton (1) Von Miller (2) AJ Green (4) Patrick Peterson (5) Julio Jones (6) Tyron Smith (9) JJ Watt (11)." I'm not sold …

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…
