Is "The Process" so 2017 for Bills coach Sean McDermott? Is "Earning It" the new wave for 2018? Throughout last season, the first-year coach uttered the word with such regularity that hardly an interview or news conference went by without him using the word. Win. Lose. The circumstances didn't seem to matter. After all, sensing the irony, McDermott at one point refer…

Robert Foster did not have the kind of stats in college that scream “NFL future.” As a redshirt senior wide receiver at Alabama in 2017, he made just 14 catches for 174 yards and one touchdown. The year before, he started just two games, finishing with five catches for 55 yards, making just two starts. He looked like he was on his way to stardom at the start of the 2…

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…

Sean McDermott hopes the Buffalo Bills can find the next Quintin Mikell in the 12 undrafted free agents who officially signed with the team Friday. An undrafted free agent out of Boise State, Mikell turned himself into an All-Pro safety with the Philadelphia Eagles during the time McDermott was on their coaching staff. “Really a credit to the way he approached his jo…

Head Coach Sean McDermott Friday, May 11, 2018 Q: Can you just go over what you’re hoping to get out of the two day rookie minicamp, Coach? A: Yeah, it’s good to get the guys in here beginning last night a little bit. You want to come in- it’s on two different levels: the first level being the drafted players starting to understand our schemes, our systems, our p…

Bills coach Sean McDermott started rookie minicamp Friday with a news conference with reporters. Here are some of the highlights: Overall:  "We are not where we need to be, and you can say the same for our roster." On Josh Allen: “Josh Allen has a strong arm, we all know that. ... I've been around the league to know it's one of the stronger arms, but there a lot o…

Once the Buffalo Bills finalize contracts with their 12 undrafted free agents, the team will have its 90-man roster set. That's not to say there won't be changes before September. June 1 is a key date for potential cuts around the league, and the Bills will surely have an eye on any players who hit the open market who could help. After figuring in contracts for their dr…

Sean McDermott is taking a no-stone-unturned approach to coaching challenges this offseason. McDermott's challenges were not a particularly big issue in 2017. The Buffalo Bills did not encounter as many controversial challenge situations as some teams. McDermott challenged only four plays, and one of those was overturned in his favor. Only four teams made fewer coach…

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…

Brandon Beane felt compelled to apologize to Brian Daboll. The Buffalo Bills’ general manager intended to get the team’s offensive coordinator some more help during last week’s NFL Draft. After taking quarterback Josh Allen with the seventh overall selection, however, each of Beane’s next four picks played defense. "We had to trust the board,” Beane said Monday durin…

The Buffalo Bills' 2019 first-round draft pick was a nonstarter for Brandon Beane. During an interview with WGR 550 on Monday morning, the team's general manager said two other clubs were "adamant" that the Bills include that pick in any move-up scenario during last week's draft. "I'm like, 'no, I'm not giving you both 'ones' this year -- a 'one' in this year's draft…

Grading an NFL Draft is a subjective exercise. What some analysts may consider a reach, others would contend is a steal. Such is the nature of evaluating prospects. Not surprisingly, then, there is a wide range of opinions about the eight-man 2018 class of the Buffalo Bills. One respected analyst gave the Bills his only "A" grade of the entire draft, while an analyti…
