This is the 10th and final part of a series looking at 10 questions facing the Buffalo Bills entering training camp, which begins Thursday. Today’s question: Which undrafted rookie free agent has the best chance to make the 53-man roster? Levi Wallace and Robert Foster showed last year that undrafted rookies shouldn’t be counted out when it comes to making the Buffalo B…

This week's Bills Mailbag focuses on LeSean McCoy's future, the biggest remaining position of need … and my son's golf game. Let's get right to it: Jim Eimer asks: Who will be the biggest surprise cut? If you were general manager, what is a blockbuster trade you would consider — either trading away or a position of upgrade? Jay: Both answers involve LeSean McCoy. The…

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…

Jordan Poyer had a message for Josh Allen on Wednesday. After the Buffalo Bills’ safety knocked down a pass in the end zone from the team’s second-year quarterback, Poyer yelled “don’t do that, Josh.” It wasn’t exactly clear whether Poyer meant don't attempt that throw against him, or in general. What was clear, though, is that the competition level for a June min…

When the Bills drafted Siran Neal, they called him a safety. But versatility was one of the things that drew Sean McDermott to the FCS product. Neal played wide receiver in high school, switched to linebacker in college, then moved back to safety and cornerback. He was an all-conference selection at linebacker in 2016 and safety in 2017. Neal played mostly special te…

It was with pride and pain that Buffalo Bills safety Siran Neal wore his new No. 33 jersey as a tribute to his late childhood friend, as the second-year pro spent an afternoon last week running around with a handful of teammates and horde of children at Hillview Elementary School in Lancaster. “My brother, he died, he got in a car crash right before I got drafted last y…

The Buffalo Bills' offseason has hit its first bit of adversity. When Sean McDermott started his news conference before the team's second spring practice session, he read an injury report that sounded like it should have come in Week 7 of the regular season. The good news is it's May. There is time for those players to get healthy. The bad news is, those injured play…

Buffalo Bills safety Siran Neal wore No. 29 during his rookie season. But he posted on Instagram this week that he switched to 33 as a way to pay homage to his brother. "I wear this number with pride and full of pain," Neal wrote. "I changed my number because last year right before I got drafted I lost my brother due to a car accident. He wore number 33 in high school. …

The safety position enjoyed a resurgence in the NFL this offseason. Big-money deals worth potentially more than $40 million over the life of the contracts were signed by Landon Collins (Washington), Earl Thomas (Baltimore), Tyrann Mathieu (Kansas City) and LaMarcus Joyner (Oakland). Those deals come after a year in which some top free-agent safeties languished on the op…

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…

HOUSTON – The matchup Sunday between Bills cornerback Tre’Davious White and Texans receiver DeAndre Hopkins was highly anticipated. So, too, will be the rematch, whenever that happens. White was outspoken after the Bills’ 20-13 loss against Houston at NRG Stadium. “I feel like I won the battle,” he said. “I mean, what he have, two passes for like 30-something yard…

The Buffalo Bills are down a pair of safeties Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. Starter Micah Hyde (groin) and top backup Rafael Bush (shoulder) were both made inactive about 90 minutes before kickoff. Both players were listed as questionable, but did not practice all week. Rookie Siran Neal figures to start in Hyde's absence, although the Bills' game-day roster does…

What a change from a year ago at this time. The 2017 Buffalo Bills season got off to a surprising 3-1 start, capturing the attention and imagination of the team’s long-suffering fans. That hot start went a long way toward the Bills ending a 17-year playoff drought. Fast forward to today, though, and it’s a different story. The Bills have started 2018 with a 1-3 recor…

Jordan Poyer equates what Siran Neal is doing to jumping from middle school to college graduation. The leap from Football Championship Subdivision Jacksonville State of the Ohio Valley Conference to the NFL is a massive one, which Neal has learned in his rookie season with the Buffalo Bills. “He's come a long way in terms of understanding our scheme, understanding ho…
