This is the fourth in a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 25 start of training camp. The Buffalo Bills’ situation at tight end is best described as unsettled heading into the start of training camp. The starter the past four years at the position, Charles Clay, was released at the start of the offseason – a move that was expected af…

Buffalo Bills restricted free agent tight end Logan Thomas has signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions. Thomas returns to Detroit after being on their practice squad in 2016 when he was making the switch from quarterback to tight end. He was not on the Lions' active roster and the Bills signed him away two days later. Thomas played in 12 games in each of the la…

INDIANAPOLIS – Sean McDermott jokingly asked a reporter last week if he would be able to play tight end for the Buffalo Bills. At least, we think the team’s head coach was joking. The truth is, his team could use the help right about now – no matter who it comes from. The Bills currently have just one tight end under contract for the 2019 season – making it a certain…

The Buffalo Bills don’t have a hole at their starting tight end position – yet. Charles Clay and his $9 million salary still occupies that spot, but that’s not expected to be the case for long. If Clay is released, the Bills would save $4.5 million against the 2019 salary cap, a move that looks like a no-brainer after the veteran finished with just 21 catches for 184 ya…

Logan Thomas carried a basketball as he walked through the Buffalo Bills’ locker room Monday. He was about to place it in a cardboard box, along with other personal belongings. “It helps keep things light around here,” the Bills’ tight end said. “Half the locker room played basketball at some point in their life.” Thomas had taken over being the team’s keeper of the bask…

Josh Allen stayed on brand Sunday. The Buffalo Bills’ rookie quarterback dazzled at times against the Miami Dolphins at New Era Field. He also sprinkled in a few head-scratching moments. First, the good. Allen broke the Bills’ single-season franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback with a 35-yard gain in the third quarter. He finished with nine carries for …

Analysis

If there was any doubt about Charles Clay’s future with the Buffalo Bills, it was eliminated Sunday. By making their starting tight end a healthy inactive against the New England Patriots, the Bills sent a clear message that Clay isn’t long for Buffalo. “Just coach's decision,” coach Sean McDermott said. “Production and looking at young guys. When you have opportunit…

LeSean McCoy’s not ready to pack it in. Even though the playoffs are no longer a possibility, the Buffalo Bills’ running back is still eager to get on the field in the final two weeks, starting Sunday in New England. “I want to. I want to get out there and get it going a little bit,” McCoy said Thursday after practice. “I need some more yards. But no, it'll be fun to…

Bills

As Derek Anderson’s stay in the NFL’s concussion protocol dragged on, concern grew. The Buffalo Bills’ veteran quarterback was hurt against the New England Patriots on Oct. 29, but didn’t receive medical clearance until last Friday. As days turned into weeks, it became less about Anderson being able to play again and more about him having a healthy life outside of footb…

Bills

The Buffalo Bills are down a pair of running backs. Both starter LeSean McCoy and backup Chris Ivory are inactive Sunday against the Detroit Lions at New Era Field. McCoy is out because of a hamstring injury, while Ivory won't play because of a shoulder injury. Both players were hurt last week against the Jets. That leaves Marcus Murphy and Keith Ford as the two opti…

Buffalo Bills tight end Logan Thomas and wife, Brandie, welcomed a baby boy Friday, 13 months after the death of their newborn daughter. Devin Thomas joins a family of four brothers. Logan Thomas posted a series of videos of himself, Brandie and their children on Instagram. Thomas was inactive for the Bills on Sunday against Miami but was with the team in Florida.…

Bills

The end of last Sunday’s game between the Bills and Jaguars was rather anticlimactic. For the home team, that was a good thing. Bills receivers Zay Jones easily recovered an onside kick attempt by Jacksonville’s Josh Lambo, allowing his team to run out the clock in a 24-21 win. The play was forgettable — as nearly every onside kick attempt has become in the NFL. The …

Don't look now, but the Buffalo Bills are officially "in the hunt." A pair of victories over AFC teams in their past two games has at least kept the Bills on the TV graphic showing the postseason picture. That leads us into our first question in this week's mailbag. Let's get to it: Brendan Sweet asks: Any chance the Bills can run the table and sneak into the playoff…
