That unemployment was of his own doing, Coleman said Thursday after the Bills’ first training camp practice at St. John Fisher Colle…

The Buffalo Bills' offseason has hit its first bit of adversity. When Sean McDermott started his news conference before the team's second spring practice session, he read an injury report that sounded like it should have come in Week 7 of the regular season.

The Buffalo Bills took a calculated risk in releasing safety Dean Marlowe this week. Given how well Marlowe played in spot duty during the Week 5 win over Tennessee, there was at least a chance he would have caught the eye of one of the other 31 teams. When the Bills released Marlowe on Tuesday to make room for quarterback Derek Anderson, any one of those teams could ha…

That hot start went a long way toward the Bills ending a 17-year playoff drought. Fast forward to today, though, and it’s a different story. The Bills have started 2018 with a 1-3 recor…
