The Bills added to their roster on Friday

The Buffalo Bills added to their tight end group on Friday, signing Johnathan “Bug” Howard to a contract. Terms of the deal have yet to be disclosed.

Howard, who is either 26 (according to Wikipedia and his official college bio) or 28 (according to the Bills’ release) entered the NFL as an undrafted rookie following the 2017 NFL Draft. Since then, he’s been with quite a few teams for tryout...

Buffalo’s star linebacker lands the number-two spot on our list.

We’re down to the final two players on our countdown of the top ten 25-and-under Buffalo Bills. It’s officially Pro Bowl territory now, and this entry features the cornerstone of the Bills’ defense. He’s a remarkable athlete and an every-down defender, and even though he’s entering his fourth season, he’s younger than half of the Bills rookies!

We’re back, baby! The Buffalo Bills reported to training camp on Tuesday and their first practice was at One Bills Drive on Wednesday with their second Thursday morning. It’s just helmets and shorts right now, and the press is very limited in what they are allowed to share, but they are back just the same.

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane spoke with the media earlier in the weekmorning followed by head coach Sean McDermott. After...

General manager Brandon Beane is confident in the third-year lineman

When the Buffalo Bills made Cody Ford the No. 38 selection overall in the 2019 NFL Draft, it was expected that they were drafting him to start. The question was at what position would Ford fit best. Some evaluators pegged him as a guard, but the Bills started his career at right tackle.

After an up-and-down year at right tackle as a rookie, Ford made the move inside to guard...

Well, is there any?

Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane spoke to the media on the first day of training camp and was asked a number of questions about the most burning topics of the offseason. Notably, Beane was asked about the possibility of a shiny, new contract for quarterback Josh Allen.

“Josh is in a great headspace and he’s ready to roll,” said Beane. “If for some reason we’re able to get something done, I’ll...

90 players in 90 days: CB Dane Jackson

The second-year man has a shot at starting this season

At the onset of the 2020 season, the Buffalo Bills had a familiar look to their depth chart at cornerback. They had a legitimate star at the top, followed by an older veteran looking to reclaim lost glory—that player would battle with their former undrafted free agent for a starting role—and then they finished it off with their slot corners, special teamers, and developmental projects.

This year,...

With two offensive linemen on COVID list, Buffalo Bills add two replacements

Earlier this week, the Buffalo Bills placed left tackle Dion Dawkins and guard Ike Boettger on the Reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive as they arrived to camp. One was vaccinated and one was unvaccinated. As a result, the Bills added two offensive linemen on Thursday.

Marquel Harrell signed with the Bills following the 2020 NFL Draft as an undrafted free agent. He was released as part of the final roster cuts a year...

What does improvement look like for Josh Allen in 2021?

Besides volume metrics with the expanded season

When your QB has an MVP-caliber season it might sound strange to think there’s room for improvement, but let’s do it anyway. In fact, with only three seasons under his belt it’s not that crazy to think Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen has a higher ceiling to find. Before we dive in, let’s get one thing out of the way first. We’ll focus on rate stats what with the whole 17-game season...

The big mauler is looking to make his first NFL roster

The Buffalo Bills have plenty of depth along the offensive line thanks to general manager Brandon Beane, whose philosophy on offensive line depth falls into line with a great Tom Petty album cut: Too Much Ain’t Enough. No matter how many players a team thinks it has up front, protecting The Franchise (in this case, Josh Allen) is essential.

In years past, the Bills were scrounging for players to...

The Bills have big hopes for this defensive tackle in 2021.

As you might expect, the list of the best young Buffalo Bills is going to be topped by some recent first round draft picks. It makes sense - these players have the college reputation, the athletic talent, the potential to dream on, and important roles on the team. If they continue to polish their skills, they can join the league’s elite someday. At number three on the list, we have a defensive tackle...

We thought they might bring in another veteran, but they still have not.

The Buffalo Bills kicked off training camp this week, and we are taking a look at the biggest battles on the board. Today we look at the starting tight end position.

Dawson Knox vs. Jacob Hollister (vs. Zach Ertz)

When the Bills picked Dawson Knox in the third round of the 2019 NFL Draft, most hoped he would develop into the tight end the team has needed for a long time. To this point,...

Buffalo Bills defensive end Jerry Hughes failed his incoming physical to training camp and will begin the year on the Non-Football Injury list. Hughes strained his calf between minicamp and training camp and was away from the facility, which is why it’s NF-I and not the PUP list.

Bills general manager Brandon Beane announced the information at his opening press conference. He didn’t seem too concerned that it would be a long-term...

The Buffalo Bills began their 2021 training camp on Wednesday, but two members of last year’s starting offensive line won’t be available to practice yet because of the coronavirus. Dion Dawkins and Ike Boettger have both landed on the COVID-19 reserve list, according to Bills GM Brandon Beane.
