General managers around the NFL apparently didn’t get the memo that the league’s trade deadline this year doesn’t arrive until 4 p.m. Oct. 29. There have been deals aplenty dating back to the start of the regular season, with the most recent coming Tuesday when the Jacksonville Jaguars sent cornerback Jalen Ramsey to the Los Angeles Rams for a pair of first-round draft …

You can declare Bills General Manager Brandon Beane the winner in last week's trade with the New England Patriots after the Pats released center Russell Bodine on Friday. The move was reported by the Boston Globe. The Bills acquired a sixth-round pick in 2020 for Bodine, who was unlikely to make the Bills' roster, on the day before the 53-man roster deadline. Bodi…

General Manager Brandon Beane said Thursday that a number of teams have been calling about the Buffalo Bills' depth along the interior of the offensive line. That led to the trade of guard Wyatt Teller to the Cleveland Browns on Thursday. Now, according to a league source, the Bills have traded center Russell Bodine within the AFC East to the New England Patriots. ESPN …

The Buffalo Bills have set out to give Josh Allen as much work as possible this preseason. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll has gone pass heavy on the playcalling when the starting offense has been on the field through two exhibition games – with 27 called pass plays against just seven designed rushing attempts. “It’s not a game-plan-based thing. It’s really what w…

Ryan Bates has learned quickly that the NFL is in business. One minute, the former Philadelphia Eagles’ rookie offensive lineman is getting ready to go for dinner and a movie with his girlfriend. The next, his phone rings and he’s a member of the Buffalo Bills. Bates was traded to the Bills by the Eagles on Friday in exchange for defensive end Eli Harold. On Sunday, …

Are you excited yet? The Buffalo Bills are 1-0 in the preseason after a 24-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday night at New Era Field. To steal a line from Patriots beat reporter Jeff Howe on Twitter, you can't go 23-o if you don't win the first one. In all seriousness, though, here's a look at whose stock is rising and whose is falling after the prese…

The Buffalo Bills continue to search for the right combination along their offensive line. During Thursday’s preseason opener against the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field, a new combination took the field – featuring Jon Feliciano at center. A free-agent addition from the Raiders, Feliciano has taken most of his snaps at guard during training camp, but the Bills elec…

PITTSFORD – Few players have more fun on the football field than Shaq Lawson. The Buffalo Bills’ defensive end is seemingly always in the middle of whatever conversation is going on, either on the sideline or in the locker room. On Sunday, Lawson joined some of his defensive linemates in showing off some dance moves while Lakeside’s “Fantastic Voyage” blared over the sp…

PITTSFORD — Another day, another injury along the Buffalo Bills' suddenly ravaged offensive line. Reserve tackle LaAdrian Waddle left Sunday's practice at St. John Fisher College on a cart after suffering an apparent leg injury, the latest setback for an offensive line that has struggled to find any sort of continuity during training camp. Waddle joins center Mitch M…

Here are my observations from the Bills’ eighth practice of training camp Friday night: 1. Tommy Sweeney isn’t quite the last man standing at tight end for the Buffalo Bills, but it’s getting close. Sweeney, a seventh-round draft pick out of Boston College, has risen up the depth chart this summer mostly because of what’s happening around him. Presumed starter Tyler …

PITTSFORD – Here are my top takeaways from Day 7 of Bills training camp at St. John Fisher College. 1. Dialing it back. The Bills practiced in shorts and shells Thursday after four consecutive workouts in pads. As such, the intensity level was down a couple of notches. With a night practice looming Friday at New Era Field, coach Sean McDermott went heavy on veteran rest…

Analysis

Jadeveon Clowney’s holdout from training camp with the Houston Texans has entered its second week. A former No. 1 overall draft pick, Clowney has yet to sign his one-year contract with the Texans, who used the franchise tag on him. That means he can’t be fined for skipping camp, as he did all of spring practices, and thus isn’t expected to report until closer to the sta…

Barring and unforeseen move, the Bills will enter training camp with 16 offensive linemen on the roster. It can be hard to keep them all straight. But if that sounds like you, you're in luck: Mark Gaughan's training camp preview of the offensive line sorts things out nicely. Here's how the position looks entering camp, from left to right across the line: Left tack…

The Buffalo Bills got an early start on their summer Thursday. Head coach Sean McDermott canceled the team’s final practice of mandatory minicamp and instead hosted a field day inside the ADPRO Sports Training Center. “I’ve been encouraged with the participation, with the attitude, with the work ethic,” McDermott said Monday. “The guys are coming together.” That’s…

The Buffalo Bills are serious about rebuilding their offensive line. The team agreed to a two-year contract with former Oakland Raiders guard/center Jon Feliciano on Tuesday night, according to a report from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. Feliciano, 27, is a 6-foot-4-inch, 325-pounder who was a fourth-round draft pick by Oakland in 2015. He appeared in 13 games with four start…
