The Buffalo Bills have something that has eluded them for a long time: Stability. The team is entering the third year under the leadership of coach Sean McDermott. That means the same defensive system for three years in a row. Offensive coordinator Brian Daboll will return for his second season on the job, so the offense will have continuity that it has long lacked. Las…

LB Tremaine Edmunds Monday, April 15, 2019 Q: So Tremaine, in years past, we would normally get a guy like Kyle [Williams] out here early on, or maybe Lorenzo [Alexander].

Josh Allen was in his glory through the first few days of last month’s NFL free-agency period. The Buffalo Bills were stocking up on offensive players. Guys who would protect him.

So far, the Buffalo Bills' offseason has been dominated by a move they didn't make. The team's reported interest in a trade with the Pittsburgh Steelers for star receiver Antonio Brown never came to be, but it was a clear sign that General Manager Brandon Beane will be aggressive in trying to build talent around quarterback Josh Allen.

A good sign of just how much Josh Allen has won over Buffalo came at Thursday night’s Sabres game. When Allen was shown on the Jumbotron – wearing a Tre White Goalie Academy sweatshirt – the crowd inside KeyBank Center cheered as loud as it did all night.
