How long should the Buffalo Bills wait before letting other players use number 95?

Should they let anyone wear the number again?

After his successful 13-year career, Buffalo Bills defensive tackle Kyle Williams finally called the 2018 season his last. Williams was the bright spot on a team that went through a lot of gloomy seasons. Despite the teams struggles, he stuck it out in Buffalo when he could have gone elsewhere and he was rewarded in 2017, when the Bills broke their playoff drought.

Williams is going to be on the Bills Wall of Fame, but he won't be in the Pro...

Bills rank among teams with most needs according to Sports Illustrated

Thankfully the Bills have plenty of cap space and 10 picks to address those needs!

The Buffalo Bills took a step backwards in terms of their record during the 2018 season, finishing 6-10 and experiencing a three-game decline from 2017’s playoff-bound team that went 9-7.

That said, many Bills fans feel optimistic for the team’s future, with a slew of young talent like quarterback Josh Allen, cornerback Tre’Davious White, linebackers Tremaine Edmunds and Matt Milano, and more on the...

Close encounters of the Buffalo Bills kind

We took to Twitter asking Bills fans to share their most random player encounters.

Sometimes as fans, we tend to forget that athletes, coaches, staff members and even the owners of our favorite teams are mostly just regular people like us. Sure, they have wealth and fame and some drive vehicles we could never dream of owning, but many of them still live fairly normal lives.

The staff at Buffalo Rumblings began a conversation on this very topic, asking each other about some of the random...

Bills release TE Charles Clay

The Bills released tight end Charles Clay. The move was widely expected after Clay’s disappointing 2018 campaign.  Clay, 30, was set to enter the final year of the five-year contract he signed with the Bills back in 2015. Instead, the Bills released him in order to save $4.5M against the 2019 cap. Clay proved to be worth the expenditure in his first couple of seasons with Buffalo. From 2015 to 2017, Clay averaged 52 catches for 546 yards and three touchdowns. Last year, however, he was...

Bills announce the release of longtime TE Charles Clay

The Buffalo Bills are apparently going in another direction at tight end for young quarterback Josh Allen. The team announced on Friday that it has released veteran tight end Charles Clay after four seasons in Western New York. Clay, 30, originally signed a lucrative five-year, $38 million contract with Buffalo in 2015 after a near-Pro Bowl performance the previous season with the Miami Dolphins. Since then, he’s failed to live up to that relatively lofty price tag. Last season alone, Clay...

Bills release Charles Clay

The Bills opened up $4.5 million of cap space with the release.

Charles Clay has been released from his contract with the Buffalo Bills, after four years with the team. The team announced their transaction late Friday afternoon. Clay was due to receive $9 million in 2019 for the final year of his contract, but the Bills will clear $4.5 million of that cap space with his release.

Clay had his worst professional season in 2018, with 21 receptions for 184 yards and no touchdowns for the Bills....

All-22 review: Buffalo Bills cornerback Lafayette Pitts

We take a glimpse at special teams mainstay and primary backup corner Lafayette Pitts Lost in all the hubbub of Spencer Long was the fact that the Buffalo Bills re-signed cornerback Lafayette Pitts for one more year. Pitts was a mainstay on special teams and saw spot duty on defense. In two separate games injuries and other circumstances gave him extended auditions. The Bills must have seen something they liked, so we took a look to get to the bottom of Pitts. Play 1 An injury to Taron...

What would it cost for Washington to trade up with the Buffalo Bills

If they want an Alex Smith replacement, Buffalo could be sitting pretty. When Alex Smith was injured in 2018, it was apparent fairly early on that his recovery wouldn’t be like that of a normal broken leg. The bone was sticking out of the leg, leading to a greater risk of infection and multiple surgeries. With his leg still in a special cast, Washington has now said they don’t expect Smith to play in 2019 (but left out the more ominous “if he ever plays again”.) If Washington wants...

Spencer Long’s contract laden with incentives

The offensive lineman is betting on himself with a high-risk, high-reward contract. Two days after the dust settled from the Buffalo Bills signing offensive lineman Spencer Long, we have new clarification about the contract details thanks to the hard work of ESPN beat reporter Mike Rodak. Overall, Long’s contract is long on incentives and short on guaranteed money. The Bills are only on the hook for a single season, but two successive team options allow Buffalo to extend his deal up to two...

How defenses made Josh Allen look bad

A look at how three teams used similar concepts to make Josh Allen look bad

If Josh Allen is the franchise quarterback we’ve all been waiting for, it’s no secret he’ll need to improve on his 2018 performance. While there were flashes of talent that should give us hope, there’s no getting around the fact that the rookie turned in a few bad games. Priority one for the Buffalo Bills should be to determine what defenses did to make Josh Allen look bad, and then teach him how to beat it....
