This week’s Bills Mailbag is stuffed full of questions about Mitch Morse, LeSean McCoy, the wide receiver competition and plenty more. Let’s get right to it … Honor asks: The head coach and general manager talked a lot about deciding to get along even when they disagree strongly. Do you believe Sean McDermott was strongly against Brandon Beane signing Mitch Morse since …

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 …

The Buffalo Bills couldn't have asked for two better days to start training camp. The team practiced under perfect conditions at St. John Fisher College at 9:45 a.m. Thursday and Friday, and will do so again both days this weekend. The return of football brings with it my regular duty handling the Bills Mailbag. Let's get to your questions ... Brendan Sweet asks: …

This is the third part of a series looking at 10 questions facing the Bills entering training camp, which begins July 25. Today’s question: Is LeSean McCoy still the man at running back? Brandon Beane did his best to get out in front of the question before it even could be asked. Minutes after the Buffalo Bills’ general manager selected Florida Atlantic running back …

T.J. Yeldon entered the NFL with great expectations. He was a college star at Alabama, ranking fifth on the program’s all-time rushing yardage list, with 3,322, and became the third running back chosen in 2015 when the Jacksonville Jaguars used the 36th overall selection in the second round on him. After four years, though, it’s fair to say Yeldon hasn’t quite lived …

This is the second in a series previewing each position on the Buffalo Bills before the July 25 start of training camp. The Buffalo Bills have an overabundance of running backs heading into the start of training camp. Last year’s starter, LeSean McCoy, is back for what could be his final season with the Bills. His contract expires after this year. He’s joined by a…

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…

Losing Kyle Williams is going to hurt the leadership of any locker room. The Buffalo Bills, though, look as if they should be able to withstand it. Veteran linebacker Lorenzo Alexander figures to immediately step into that role, but he’s already announced the 2019 season will be his last. That means the Bills will be looking for another defensive player to emerge. As…

NFL teams usually dread the period between the end of minicamp and the start of training camp. It’s a time when players return home, unwind, and sometimes find themselves in trouble. The Buffalo Bills didn’t have to wait for that period to start next month, though, as trouble found rookie linebacker Tyrel Dodson last weekend. Dodson was arrested in Scottsdale, Ariz.,…

Props to you, the readers, for providing some great questions this week in the Bills Mailbag. A programming note: If yours didn't make it this week, I've got it saved for next week. Let's get to it ... Viva Los Bills #PonchoPower asks: What returning starter from last season is the most likely not to make the team in 2019? Jay: First of all, well done on the name.…

Bills

It was a (checks calendar) chilly start to rookie minicamp Friday for The Buffalo News. A total of 54 drafted rookies, undrafted free-agent signings, first-year veterans and tryout players practiced outside on the grass fields at One Bills Drive on a day that felt more like November than May. Enough of my complaining, though, let's get to this week's mailbag ... Nick…

Sixty-six rushing touchdowns in a 38-game collegiate career. How, Devin Singletary was asked, did he manage that? “Just growing up in South Florida (Deerfield Beach), playing little league football, it’s big down there,” the former Florida Atlantic star told reporters during a conference call shortly after the Buffalo Bills made him a third-round draft pick last Frid…

Bills

A crowded Buffalo Bills running back room will have to make room for one more. With its third-round pick, No. 74 overall, the team selected Florida Atlantic running back Devin Singletary on Friday night -- a pick that promises to produce plenty of speculation. Singletary joins a running back depth chart in Buffalo that already includes LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore, T.J. Yel…

The Bills entered the week of the 2019 NFL Draft with Keith Ford as their only running back under contract for 2020. LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore are expected to shoulder the load this season, but the plan beyond that seemed murky. With that in mind, running back was considered somewhat of a draft need for the Bills, whose top two running backs are both on the wrong side…

Bills

Running back might now be less of a draft need for the Buffalo Bills. That's because the team announced a two-year contract agreement with running back T.J. Yeldon on Monday. Yeldon, 25, is a former second-round draft pick of the Jaguars in 2015 who spent the first four years of his career in Jacksonville. In 51 career games, the Alabama product started 30 of those and …
