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…

Bills wide receiver Robert Foster suffered a foot injury last week, and the team is evaluating its severity. Coach Sean McDermott told reporters Tuesday on the first day of minicamp that he doesn’t think it’s a long-term injury but it’s “still early in the process.” Wide receivers Zay Jones will not practice and Cole Beasley will be limited, meaning three of the Bill…

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.,…

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…

A light bulb seemingly went off for Zay Jones last season. Through the first 11 games of 2018, the Buffalo Bills’ wide receiver was targeted 60 times and made 27 catches for 392 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The “bust” word was even whispered about the 2017 second-round draft pick. The low point came in a Week 11 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, when Jones was ta…

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.…

No one was in the house to hear Jason Milne laugh on that Friday night last October, with his wife and three young daughters out of town, and the former college defensive back felt compelled to share his joy. Milne rewound the televised game he was watching, hit play after a few seconds and held his iPhone vertically, pointing its camera toward the bottom right corner o…

Micah Hyde couldn’t resist a little trash talking as he met with reporters Thursday to promote his first charity softball game in Buffalo. “I feel like we, as a defense, are going to smash the offense,” Hyde said at Sahlen Field, which will be the site of the June 2 clash of Buffalo Bills teammates and other participants. “We know that the defense is a lot more skilled,…

The Buffalo Bills’ receiver corps got an extreme makeover Tuesday. The team agreed to contracts with both John Brown and Cole Beasley on the second day of the NFL’s “legal tampering period.” Both of those deals won’t become official until 4 p.m. Wednesday, at the start of the new league year. Brown’s signing, which was first reported by NFL Network’s Peter Schrager, …

A critical offseason is about to start for the Buffalo Bills. Year No. 2 of the Brandon Beane-Sean McDermott pairing produced a step back with a 6-10 record. That was not entirely unexpected, though, after the team moved on from starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor, replacing him with rookie Josh Allen. Perhaps more importantly, the front office also made the calculated de…

This is the first in a series on the Buffalo Bills’ key needs entering NFL free agency. This installment looks at wide receiver. It’s easy to point to wide receiver as the Bills’ most crying need. With Josh Allen being the face of the franchise’s long-term hope for success, the bulk of the blame for the Bills’ abysmal passing naturally falls on the catchers rather th…

This week’s Mailbag has a heavy emphasis on how the Bills should go about rebuilding on the offensive side. Let’s get right to your questions … Greg Tompsett asks: Do you think it makes sense to view the offensive line rebuild as a two-year project: a few free-agent signings and multiple draft picks, then further investment in free agency and the draft in 2020, viewing …

Welcome to the first celebrity Bills Mailbag. Check out the first question to see what I mean. Topics this week include the possibility of adding Antonio Brown in a trade, what the team might do with all of its cap space and what’s in store for Duke Williams. Let’s get to it … Luke Russert asks: Do you think there’s a mindset within One Bills Drive that the clock rea…

Bills

Sean McDermott is right to believe the Buffalo Bills are better off now, after finishing the season with a 6-10 record, than they were last year, after going 9-7 and losing a wild-card playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. “I’m not a good loser in terms of 6-10,” the coach said during his season-ending news conference Monday. “I’m not going to go there with tha…
