That’s exactly the way General Manager Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott want it. “If you’re building your roster the right way, that’s what you want,” McDermott said after Thursday night’s preseason finale, a come-from-behind, 27-23 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. "You want those tough decis…

Devin Singletary was never the biggest or fastest player on the field when he played running back at Florida Atlantic University. The same will be true when he makes his professional debut soon with the Buffalo Bills.
