She named her cat Tyrod. Her receiving the game ball was cau…

Analysis

This is the first in series that looks at potential free agents at positions where the Bills have their greatest needs. Free agency is usually not the place to find a starting quarterback. There could be an exception – or make that exceptions – in 2018, though. An intriguing crop of candidates is scheduled to become free agents when the NFL’s new league year starts i…

General Manager Brandon Beane acknowledged as much last month at the Senior Bowl. “We're a long way from where we need to be,” Beane said in Mobile, Ala. “This year was setting the culture and expectations of what we need to get done.  ... We have a lot of holes to fill. We know that. We're going to do …

(This is the second of a three-part series on the Bills' salary cap heading into the 2018 free-agency season.) One look at the top seven players on the Buffalo Bills' salary table shows why the team still is a ways from title contention. The top two – quarterback Tyrod Taylor and left tackle Cordy Glenn — surely aren't part of the long-term future of the team, regard…

The Philadelphia Eagles' use of run-pass option plays was one of the storylines of their Super Bowl-winning season. It was not a storyline of the Buffalo Bills' 2017 season. The Eagles ranked No. 1 in the NFL regular season by using RPOs on 181 plays (17 percent), according to Pro Football Focus. The Bills called only 20 RPOs, which amounted to 2 percent of their …
