You don't want that.'

I've played long enough so I think it's gotta be the right situation. Teams are just waiting to see what they have too. Teams have all these young guys and they know what they're getting from me as I've played nine years... So they were just looking through minicamps and OTAs. I'm just waiting to see who's going to call and what the right situation [is], but every team is open right now."'

Marker Bills at RB: LeSean McCoy still looks to be at the top of his game [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The backfield did take a hit when the Bills, through some front-office bumbling, allowed standout reserve Mike Gillislee to join the New England Patriots as a restricted free agent. The loss likely would have been avoided had the Bills given him a second-round tender, costing just under $1 million in cap space, rather than the original fifth-round tender that motivated the Patriots to structure a $6.4-million offer sheet that was tough to match.'

Marker Jim Kelly says Sean McDermott brings discipline Bills 'haven't had in awhile' [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"From what I saw last week, the majority of guys are healthy," he said. "That's what we need. It's not like we have so much depth.

Marker Kelly: 'McDermott brings discipline' to Bills [1:55 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"I want to turn this thing around," he continued. "Not only for the coaching staff and the fans, but for the Pegulas. All the investment they've put into it, not only with the Bills but the Sabres and how they came -- I want to see if for them, too."'

Marker Ross hopes to be more than a returner [1:54 AM] reports: '“Coming out of high school I always wanted to go to Cal because of DeSean Jackson and Jahvid Best because Jahvid was from Vallejo, where I’m from,” said Ross. “But I always looked up to DeSean.”'

Marker Bills Today: Is Tyrod the most elusive QB in the NFL? [1:53 AM] reports: 'According to Pro Football Focus, Taylor forced the most missed tackles in 2016 with a total of 20.

Marker Jordan Poyer found it 'a blessing just to put the cleats on' during Bills' offseason [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After making a career-best 39 tackles and defending two passes in less than half of last season, Poyer is resuming his career with the Buffalo Bills. He treats the lacerated kidney, from which he says he's "one-hundred-percent" recovered, as more of a distant memory than one that still haunts him.'

Marker Bills' cap situation looking healthier for 2017 and beyond [1:58 AM]

Marker Top five questions Bills need to answer before training camp [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'McDermott didn't specifically mention Dareus when talking about being worried about the team's break, but it's natural that his name immediately comes to mind. The Bills need their franchise defensive tackle to actually play like one in 2017. That starts with Dareus actually being available. He's one failed drug test away from a 10-game suspension after sitting out the first four games of 2016 for violating the NFL's substance-abuse policy. For a new coaching staff that has preached how important character is, it would look downright terrible if Dareus were to find his way into off-field trouble again.'

Rochester D&C reports: 'Williams is a father of five and acting responsibly, humbly and treating others with respect is the example he sets for his kids. But he also knows it’s a big world out there, one with cell phones, cable TV and social media. It’s normal and healthy for kids to have heroes outside the home and many exist in the realm of sports and entertainment.'

Marker Buffalo Bills already in contention for 2018 No. 1 overall pick, says Bleacher Report [1:56 AM]

Marker Sean McDermott ranks near the bottom of head coach power rankings [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Granted, McDermott has never been a head coach. He's also taking over a franchise that underwent a front-office shift just months after he accepted the job. The Bills' new rookie GM, Brandon Beane, is a familiar face to McDermott, as the two worked together in Carolina. Worth noting here that McDermott's lack of experience as a head coach does not make him unqualified for the post. ... He just wrapped up eight straight seasons as a defensive coordinator (for the Eagles and Panthers), fielding a top-10 defense in half of them. Five of those teams made it to the postseason," analyst Eliot Harrison wrote.'

Cindy said they might have to find another section so they don’t blow their cover in their regular seats.'
