Former Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito has returned to his Arizona home, two weeks after being admitted for an involuntary mental health evaluation by police in Florida. "I'm training my (expletive) off at EXOS back home in Phoenix," Incognito wrote in a text message first sent to the Associated Press and then later The Buffalo News. "So thankful to have so many gr…

Here are the highlights from Bills coach Sean McDermott's meeting with reporters Thursday: Bills wide receiver Zay Jones had knee surgery last week and will miss the remainder of the spring practice sessions, coach Sean McDermott said Thursday. McDermott said "at this point" he does not believe that Jones' 2018 season is in doubt. McDermott did not want to comment …

Former Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito's troubling offseason continues. According to a report Wednesday from TMZ, Incognito had the police called on him at a gym in Florida after allegedly being involved in an altercation with another man, who accused Incognito of throwing a dumbbell at him. "We spoke with the alleged victim who tells us Incognito first threw a …

The on-again, off-again relationship between Richie Incognito and the Buffalo Bills officially ended Monday when the team released him from the reserve/retired list. Doing so means Incognito can continue his playing career elsewhere – if another team is interested in his services. It also will provide the Bills with some additional salary cap space, although figuring ou…

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…

The Buffalo Bills' rookies are in the building. The team will hold minicamp this weekend for its drafted players, undrafted free agents and select first-year pros, along with a group that's in on a tryout basis. Here's a look at what we'll be watching for: 1. The Josh Allen Show. Clearly, the Bills' first-round quarterback is the main attraction. Getting a chance to …

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…

Josh Allen posed for the first time with his No. 17 jersey as Friday's sun dipped below New Era Field's upper deck. He posed with his father, his girlfriend and fellow first-round draft choice Tremaine Edmunds. Then the Buffalo Bills front office arrived. Allen stood alongside Terry and Kim Pegula, General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott. Allen beamed …

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…

Remember when Mario Williams made his visit to Buffalo Bills as a free agent and the weather was incredible? I've been thinking about that a lot this week, as the Bills bring some of the draft's top prospects to town for visits. The conditions outside are drastically different than they were in March 2012, when there was a glorious run of 80-degree days during Williams'…

Bills

The Bills' roster turnover was a spectacle to behold in the first year of the Sean McDermott-Brandon Beane regime. Players who fit Rex Ryan's defense were shed. Big contracts were traded. High draft picks that underperformed were sent packing. As the Bills enter their second post-Rex season, trades and retirements have continued that trend. After scratching Richie…

The retirement of veteran guard Richie Incognito obviously would throw a significant wrench into the Buffalo Bills' plans to overhaul their 29th-ranked offense. It's not so much that the Bills won't be able to find a viable replacement for Incognito, who confirmed his intention to quit to The News' Vic Carucci. It's that they would lose their highest-caliber offensive l…
