A reader in this week's Bills mailbag asked which position will feature the "most interesting roster competition" this summer. His suggestions were offensive line and wide receiver. The fight for starting jobs along the offensive line will be intense this year, especially at the guard positions, though you could argue that watching linemen may not qualify as the "most i…

Props to you, the readers, for providing some great questions this week in the Bills Mailbag. A programming note: If yours didn't make it this week, I've got it saved for next week.

The expected has occurred: Danny Crossman is out as the Buffalo Bills' special teams coordinator. Crossman was fired Thursday by coach Sean McDermott after a disastrous 2018 season for the Bills' special teams. Buffalo finished the year last in rankings compiled by analytics website Football Outsiders. Crossman, who joined the Bills in 2013, amazingly served under th…

Sean McDermott was asked Monday during his season-ending press conference if it was fair to grade his team on a curve, given the youth of the roster and the salary cap situation heading into the year. “I understand where you’re coming from with that and I’m more concerned right now with the direction of the organization, the direction of our football team,” the Buffalo …

Charles Clay's time as the Buffalo Bills' starting tight end might be coming to an end. Clay is a healthy inactive Sunday against the New England Patriots. Clay has struggled mightily since missing two games with a hamstring injury earlier this season, making just two catches for 15 yards in the last four games. He failed to make a catch at the goal line in the fourth q…

Lorenzo Alexander is 35 years old. That fact continues to blow the minds of his teammates on the Buffalo Bills’ defense. “Zo's a beast. Everything he does for us, especially at his age, man, this dude is a beast,” safety Micah Hyde said. On Sunday, that included stepping into a new role. With Matt Milano out for the season because of a broken fibula, Alexander played…

Every NFL team has someone who can be considered a No. 1 wide receiver. How that’s defined – whether by number of targets, catches or yards – is subjective. But not every team has a true No. 1 receiver – a game-changing player defensive coordinators wake up in a cold sweat thinking about – and that includes the Buffalo Bills. Kelvin Benjamin certainly wasn’t it, and Sam…

Analysis

The Buffalo Bills’ season took a turn in Week 9. A 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears at New Era Field dropped the team to 2-7 and made it abundantly clear that a second straight trip to the postseason was highly unlikely. In the days that followed, the team’s focus shifted. The plug was mercifully pulled on the Nathan Peterman Project. More than that, though, a youth mo…

A jam-packed Bills Mailbag this week, so without further ado ... Rick McGuire asks: It looks like the Jets will have about $106 million and the Bills $92 million available for free agency in 2019. I know money talks, but could you see players signing with Buffalo over New York for less because of the direction the team is headed, or will the “Big Apple” city life be mor…

The harsh reality of life in the NFL was spelled out Tuesday for members of the Buffalo Bills. The release of wide receivers Kelvin Benjamin and Andre Holmes drove home that the league is a bottom-line business. Benjamin, in particular, was not producing on par with his pay, so he was sent packing. “I appreciate, just like I do every player, what they did. It obvious…

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The Buffalo Bills will have starting tight end Charles Clay back in the lineup Sunday against the Dolphins at Hard Rock Stadium. Clay missed the past two games because of a hamstring. He was listed as questionable for the game. With Clay back, the Bills made tight end Logan Thomas a healthy inactive.

A massive brawl erupted late in the third quarter Sunday, with the end result benefiting the home team in a 24-21 win.

Rookie guard Wyatt Teller will make his second straight start Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars at New Era Field. The player Teller replaced, veteran Vlad Ducasse, is inactive for the first time this season. That leaves Ryan Groy as the top interior backup offensive lineman. …
