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…

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…

Once the Buffalo Bills finalize contracts with their 12 undrafted free agents, the team will have its 90-man roster set. That's not to say there won't be changes before September. June 1 is a key date for potential cuts around the league, and the Bills will surely have an eye on any players who hit the open market who could help. After figuring in contracts for their dr…

We won't know if the Buffalo Bills aced the 2018 NFL Draft for a few years. We can safely say now, though, that General Manager Brandon Beane accomplished nearly every one of his goals. The team left the draft with potential franchise cornerstones on both offense and defense in quarterback Josh Allen and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds. They got a potential nickel cornerbac…

Despite the immediate grading of each's team draft class, the real grades are determined over time when potential meets productivity. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. re-graded the 2017 draft after he gave the Bills a B+. Only the New Orleans Saints, with an A, did better. The Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Philadelphia Eagles, Pittsburgh Steelers and San Francis…

The Bills' six-member rookie class has been lauded for the contributions the group made to the Bills' season, but the numbers show just how involved they were. The Bills were fifth in the NFL in snaps taken by rookies with 3,448, according to Pro Football Focus. Three of the top five were playoff teams – the Bills, Jaguars and Saints.

The drought is dead. The Buffalo Bills finally ended a 17-year postseason dry spell, leading to mass celebrations, six-figure charitable donations and hope that, finally, the team is on the right path under the leadership of General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Before attention turns squarely to planning for 2018, though, here is one final look bac…

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Sunday's playoff game was there to be won, but the Buffalo Bills demonstrated they're not quite ready to challenge for anything more than our hearts just yet.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Kyle Williams has not made any decision regarding his playing future. The Buffalo Bills' veteran defensive tackle accomplished a career goal by playing in his first postseason game Sunday, and the sting of a 10-3 loss overshadowed any talk about his future.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – My observations from the Bills’ 10-3 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars that eliminated the team from the AFC playoffs. 1. Tyrod Taylor got outplayed by Blake Bortles. That’s a tough thing for Bills fans to read, but it’s true. With the Bills needing their quarterback to make a play, it never came. The penultimate chance for the offense started with 3…

McCoy was not among the inactives released by the team late Sunday morning after being listed as questionable for the game with an ankle injury suffered last week in Miami. The news wasn't as good for rookie linebacker Matt Milano, who will not play because …

It’s a good thing Kyle Williams didn’t hear Zay Jones this week. If he did, the Buffalo Bills’ veteran defensive tackle’s red beard probably would have turned gray. “Yeah, man, I've never missed the playoffs!” Jones, the Bills’ rookie receiver, said with a smile at his locker. His comment wasn’t meant to minimize the 17-year playoff drought that fans have endured …

"My confidence is still there. I…

Members of the Jacksonville Jaguars’ secondary aren’t content simply beating opponents – they want them to hear about it, too. The Jaguars have developed a reputation as some of the biggest trash talkers in the NFL, something the Buffalo Bills’ receivers have caught wind of this week. “I've been hearing that,” Deonte Thompson said. “Talking's cheap. Talking ain't nev…
