The veteran seeks a promotion to Major...or a spot on an NFL roster for the eleventh straight year

The Buffalo Bills have been called the Carolina Panthers of the north at times, as they have filled out their roster with those who played for general manager Brandon Beane and head coach Sean McDermott when the two were together in Carolina. While that hasn’t always been a completely fair assessment, the fact remains that most NFL staffs will default...

The Bills have moved on from the oft-injured former starter

After placing him on injured reserve earlier this month, the Buffalo Bills have released cornerback E.J. Gaines with an injury settlement. He is now eligible to sign with another team when he can pass a physical.

On August 10th, the Bills placed Gaines on IR with a core muscle injury. Sean McDermott suggested it would be “weeks” before Gaines would come back, so the team placed him on...

Circling the Wagons: Bills/Panthers Thoughts, 2017 vs 2018 seasons

Bills/Panthers thoughts and 2017 vs 2018 discussion

In this episode, we discuss the Buffalo Bills vs. Carolina Panthers preseason game.

Or in some cases for mistakes to push you down the depth chart. Let’s check in on the latter as we review the penalties committed by the Buffalo Bills against the Carolina Panthers.

The chart is much like last week’s except for the...

Bills, E.J. Gaines reach injury settlement

E.J. Gaines landed on the Bills’ IR list earlier this month, but the cornerback will nevertheless have a path to playing time this season. The Bills reached an injury settlement with the veteran corner to remove him from their IR list, Field Yates of ESPN.com tweets. The Bills placed Gaines on IR due to a groin injury on August 10; they signed Captain Munnerlyn to effectively replace him on the roster. Once Gaines heals up, he will have a chance to sign elsewhere and play in 2019. This was...

Biggest winners and losers from NFL preseason Week 2

Cut day is coming soon, and teams are beginning to get a glimpse of what their final rosters may look like following a full slate of games in NFL preseason Week 2. Many of the league’s young quarterbacks have been shining brightly so far this preseason. Though, one of the most prominent had a humbling experience in Week 2. A team that struggled last year appears to have some pieces in place to make a run. Meanwhile, last year’s highest-scoring offense was stuck in reverse. These are...

Buffalo signed a three-technique defensive tackle to provide relief throughout the preseason

The pecking order at defensive tackle for the Buffalo Bills has been thought to be fairly well-established throughout much of the offseason. Ed Oliver, Star Lotulelei, Jordan Phillips, and Harrison Phillips appear to be the top four at the position, with everyone else serving as camp bodies and practice-squad candidates. So it seemed a bit...

Can Wade make the Bills’ roster?

Christian Wade has taken over the NFL highlight reels in his first two games playing professional football. The Buffalo Bills were assigned Wade as part of the NFL’s International Pathway Program, and with that come some roster limitations. With the rumors flying around and his strong play, we felt the need to clarify.

Wade scored a 65-yard touchdown on his first NFL carry in Week 1 of the preseason against the...

The Bills added some veteran depth along the defensive line—can he make the final roster?

The defensive line rotation for the 2019 Buffalo Bills seems to be fairly straight-forward heading into the regular season. Perhaps all that’s left to decide is who will be the fourth defensive end, and whether the team will choose to keep four or five players at the position overall.

With much of the competition seemingly sewn up, the Bills have a slew of players who...

Cole Beasley having a blast playing for Bills

It’s fair to say that Cole Beasley is really enjoying suiting up for the Buffalo Bills. The ex-Dallas Cowboys wide receiver admitted that he’s having more fun with his new team than he’s had at any level dating back to high school, raving about his teammates. Perhaps Beasley is quite happy that the Bills may have him in line for a larger role after he signed a $29 million deal to leave Dallas, where he’d been a secondary option. What’s clear is that he’s very much sold on his new...

Bills tight end Tyler Kroft could open season on PUP list

It looks like Bills tight end Tyler Kroft isn’t going to be ready for the start of the regular season. Buffalo signed Kroft to a three-year, $18.75 million deal back in March, and he was supposed to be their starter. He then broke his foot during OTAs, and the initial timelines had him coming back sometime right around the start of the regular season. He apparently isn’t too close to returning, as he hasn’t done any on-field work yet, according to Joe Buscaglia of The Athletic (Twitter...

The ninth overall pick had Bills fans and analysts watching closely.

He also started the team’s second preseason game against the Carolina Panthers. Let’s...

Buffalo Bills vs. Carolina Panthers Injury report: John Brown in street clothes; key players remain sidelined Buffalo Bills vs. Carolina Panthers Injury report: John Brown in street clothes; several key players remain sidelined

The Buffalo Bills’ Week 2 preseason game against the Carolina Panthers is under way, but a few key players won’t take the field for tonight’s match-up.

Wide receiver John Brown is in street clothes (undisclosed) in what is essentially a meaningless game for his roster status. Andre Holmes was the beneficiary, receiving first-team reps ahead of Robert Foster.

Linebacker Corey Thompson remains sidelined with a groin injury.

In what continues to be a theme, the offensive line and tight...

Watch: Will Grier throws ghastly pick-six to Kevin Johnson

Following up a so-so NFL debut last week, Carolina Panthers rookie quarterback Will Grier threw a terrible interception Friday night that Buffalo Bills cornerback Kevin Johnson took back 71 yards for six. The only person who could have caught that pass was Johnson. Either Grier threw to the wrong spot, or his receiver ran the wrong route. Regardless, there were two Buffalo defenders there. That ball never should have left his hand.
