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 …

Bills. Jets. Barkley (maybe). McCown. Feel the excitement. Let's get to this week's mailbag ... Jim Eimer asks: Has Bills management ever explained why they neglected offense (quarterback depth, wide receiver, offensive line)? They’ve become the Cleveland Browns of the NFL — a laughingstock. Jay: Here’s what I think happened: The team made the decision to move on …

Former Bills tight end Nick O'Leary has been signed to the Miami Dolphins' practice squad. O'Leary returns to his home area, where he starred for Dwyer High in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., before going to Florida State. O'Leary was a Bills' sixth-round draft choice in 2015 and played 35 games with 22 catches for 322 yards and two touchdowns. He was released in final cut…

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 …

The Buffalo Bills set their roster Saturday, but hold off on calling it finalized. By cutting 34 players and trading quarterback AJ McCarron to the Oakland Raiders, the Bills went from 87 players to 52, one below the league maximum of 53 for the regular season. The Bills have until noon Sunday to submit waiver claims on players released by other teams Saturday, meaning …

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…

CLEVELAND – Here are 10 observations from the Bills' 19-17 victory against the Cleveland Browns on Friday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. 1. The Buffalo Bills’ offensive line did quarterback AJ McCarron and running back LeSean McCoy no favors. Whether it was failing to open holes or provide pass protection, the starting five up front was a mess. The Bills’ first four driv…

Bills

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 – 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…

Bills

PITTSFORD – There are milestones at every training camp. Saturday was one of those days at St. John Fisher College, as the Buffalo Bills practiced in pads for the first time in the 2018 season. “It brings back good memories,” center Ryan Groy said. “Every late July, you bring out the pads and it’s real football. It’s time to go.” Throughout the spring and for the …

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. …

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…
