2021 NFL Draft: Finding a new John Brown

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

Deep threats aplenty in the upcoming draft

It’s become cliché at this point but NFL offenses should be built like basketball teams, and the Buffalo Bills are no exception. Cole Beasley, Stefon Diggs, Dawson Knox and John Brown all have differing skillsets that make them a fit for different routes and ways of attacking defenses. Since he joined the team in the 2019 offseason, Brown’s role on the team has been that of a deep threat who can stretch...

Buffalo Bills Links, 2/27: State of the wide receivers

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Does it make sense for Buffalo to create $8 million in cap space by cutting John Brown?

In today’s edition of the Buffalo Bills daily links, we turn our attention to the Bills’ wide receiver room, starting with a speedy veteran whose name has been mentioned as a potential cut candidate to save salary cap space: John Brown.

We break down the state of the wide receivers, led by All-Pro Stefon Diggs, talented slot man Cole Beasley, Brown, and rookie Gabriel...

Jake Fromm, Matt Barkley or both? Bills have decision to make at backup QB

Barkley has spent three seasons as Josh Allen's backup, but Buffalo could turn to Fromm if the 2020 fifth-round pick is ready for the role.

NFL salary cap: Buffalo Bills could save $8 million in space releasing John Brown

The Buffalo Bills are currently projected to be over the 2021 NFL salary cap. There are a few players on the roster they could move on from to save cap space for free agents and one of them is wide receiver John Brown.

Brown was injured during a large chunk of the 2020 season and the Bills’ offense kept humming along. Sure he has a great rapport with quarterback Josh Allen, but the Bills drafted Gabriel Davis and Isaiah Hodgins in 2020 for this...

Would you rather have one of these players instead of john Brown?

The Buffalo Bills will see Isaiah McKenzie hit free agency next month, and they could choose to release John Brown to open up $8 million in salary cap space. That presents the team with a choice: They could move to promote Gabriel Davis to a starting receiver, and sign a role player to fill either the speed or gadget roles that Brown and McKenzie contributed. Or they could look for a...

Can Gabriel Davis, Isaiah Hodgins, allow the Bills to move on from John Brown?

Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Buffalo Bills went into the 2020 offseason needing an upgrade at receiver in a loaded year for them in the NFL Draft. Instead, they traded for alpha dog Stefon Diggs who would go on to lead the NFL in receiving. Not a bad idea, but that’s not where general manager Brandon Beane stopped.

With two receivers over 30, Beane wanted to get younger at the position and took not one but two receivers in the draft on top of adding Diggs. Fourth-rounder...

2020 All-22 Analysis: Buffalo Bills wide receiver John Brown

A look at Brown’s second year with the Bills

The addition of Stefon Diggs helped soften the blow considerably but, no doubt about it, the 2020 season for John Brown was a disappointment. Not as a result of on-field performance mind you. Injuries robbed Brown of seven games during the regular season. He went in and out of the lineup, making it hard to maintain rapport. As a possible cap casualty in 2021, it’s time to check in on Brown as is our wont....

A talented group may look a little different next year

Just a few short years ago, the Buffalo Bills had one of the league’s worst receiving groups. Of the Bills’ top wide receivers in 2018, which was quarterback Josh Allen’s rookie year, only one—Zay Jones—even played a down in the NFL this year. He caught 14 passes for the Las Vegas Raiders this season.

Essentially, the Bills were trying to break in a brand-new Ferrari, but rather than giving...

J.J. Watt reportedly has an offer for $15 million per season, per report

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Could this be reaching a conclusion?

Former Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt has very little incentive to speed up his free agency process. With the league still more than two weeks away from opening up free agency, Watt can command the attention of Twitter, NFL teams, and the media without the money drying up and he can play teams off one another. Brilliant.

According to a report by Dianna Russini of ESPN, Watt already has a lucrative contract in...

Buffalo Bills performed better without crowds in 2020

Splitting statistical performance based on crowd vs. no crowd

Occasionally a question comes into the Buffalo Rumblings Q&A that merits a deeper dive. Joe From Buffalo posited on Twitter “It might just be me but I think we had much worse performances in front of crowds.” Joe wonders if the statistics back that up. The headline gave away the answer, but perhaps not the FULL answer. Cue the dramatic music as we delve into the most 2020 season stat split imaginable.

Beane to defer Allen contract activity until after NFL Draft

Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images

There’s a plan in place.

Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen was the runner-up for the NFL’s 2020 MVP award, which rightly has fans wondering whether a contract extension could be in the works. Allen’s red-hot season was the third on the four-year rookie contract he signed—and while the Bills could reward him in the short term by activating his fifth-year option, Allen has to be thinking about the big-money deals signed by Patrick Mahomes and...

Buffalo Bills Links, 2/25: What to do at backup QB?

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

Plus, general manager Brandon Beane lays out the timeline for a potential extension for Josh Allen.

After an MVP-caliber 2020, quarterback Josh Allen has firmly cemented himself as the long-awaited franchise quarterback the Buffalo Bills have been searching for since Hall of Famer Jim Kelly retired after the 1996 season.

But with Allen’s backup for the last two-plus seasons, Matt Barkley, set to hit free agency, the Bills’ depth at quarterback is less than...

In the latest episode of Breaking Buffalo Rumblings, I have plenty of thoughts to share as the Buffalo Bills get closer to the start of free agency.

The episode starts with some thoughts on J.J. Watt, and some feedback I had received from Bills fans about the thought of him signing in Buffalo. Things then shift towards the possibility of drafting Travis Etienne in the first round, and some surprising feedback I...
