Buffalo Bills News - July 26, 2016

Marker Report: Stephon Gilmore to report to training camp [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That goes to show that there is still plenty of time for the Bills and Gilmore to reach a deal.'

Marker Tyrod Taylor, Stephon Gilmore make list of top 25 2017 free agents [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills could retain the services of both players by reaching a contract extension with one of them, which would then allow the team to use the franchise tag on the other.'

Marker Get to know the Bills' opponents: Offseason recap of the Jacksonville Jaguars [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'How close to finished is Caldwell's rebuild? It's hard to see the St. Francis product getting another chance if Jacksonville falls short of the playoffs this season.'

Marker Ryan brothers riding together again, this time with Bills [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Obviously our family name is huge,” Rob said back in mid-June during the first and only interview session he has had with local reporters since Rex brought him aboard in the off-season. “So of course there is a lot of pride in that. We are Ryans and we believe in what our name is and what we are all about.”'

Marker 3 defensive backs who need to step up for Buffalo Bills in 2016 [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Nickell Robey is might be the biggest film junkie in the Bills' defensive backs room. He knows more about the scheme and opponent tendencies than most do, and he's growing into himself as a leader. In 2016, the Bills know they need to communicate better, especially on the back end of the defense. That means guys like Robey need to lead the way. He played well in 2015, but he'll be the first to tell you that he, and the rest of his teammates, can be better.'

Marker Bills rookie to cops: My drunk driving was heroic [1:54 AM]
New York Post reports: '“I don’t want to mess with your integrity or anything like that,” Williams optimistically cautioned in the video obtained by TMZ. “The young lady in the car before me drank a lot of alcohol. I drank a 40-ounce of beer. I found myself being responsible trying to be able to take her home before she drove home because I was trying to look out for her. She was really intoxicated.”'

Marker Stephon Gilmore says he'll be at Bills camp [1:53 AM]
ESPN reports: '"I'm planning to go out to training camp," Gilmore told ESPN NFL Insider Josina Anderson on Monday. "I know what I am. [A new contract will" target="_blank"> happen eventually."'

Marker Bills training camp preview: WR and TE [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Easley is coming off a horrible knee injury and could very well start camp on the PUP list after not working in reps in any of the team's off-season program. But if and when he is healthy, his main attribute is as a special-teams player and that's where he will primarily be throughout the next month trying to secure his spot on the team again.'

Marker Sammy 'sprinting and moving 100%,' prepared for whatever is asked to start camp [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Gassers, 100s, everything in the workout room,” he said. “Any explosiveness, I’m doing that. I’m doing the cuts, but certain things are full speed and certain things aren’t.”'

Marker Report: Bills' Gilmore will report to training camp [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'As it stands now, Gilmore will play out the 2016 season under his one-year, $11.082 million for the Bills. He'll become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year in the NFL, in the beginning of March 2017.'

Marker Sammy Watkins ready for anything at Bills training camp [1:49 AM] reports: '“I’m prepared to do everything on the side by myself if I need to,” said Watkins of how things might begin for him in terms of workload at training camp. “I don’t know what they’re going to do, so I’ve got my mind right. They might throw me out there (with the team) I don’t know. I think if they do I’ll be alright. I know they’re going to do that just to test me.”'

Marker Can Buffalo's defense return to the top 10? [1:48 AM] reports: '“We’re all working together and I think everybody does a great job of keeping each other accountable as far as everybody knowing what they’re supposed to do,” said Aaron Williams. “We try to do our best to help each other out on the field. Whoever is out there on the field we want them to know what they’re doing at all times.”'

Marker Eight Bills veterans are on the bubble [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Any unused cap space can also be carried over into 2017 – an important factor to consider given that quarterback Tyrod Taylor and cornerback Stephon Gilmore are scheduled to become unrestricted free agents after the coming season.'

Marker Bills training camp preview: QB, RB, FB [1:58 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Behind Taylor, there also shouldn't be a question as to who the number-two is. EJ Manuel is entering his fourth year and last under contract with the team. Because they didn't go out and upgrade the backup spot in the off-season and only drafted Jones, the message is clear heading into camp that the 2013 first round pick will be taking the field again if Taylor gets hurt.'

Marker Bills training camp preview: Offensive Line [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The job could also be there for Kouandjio to take, but he'll have to beat out Mills who will start day one of camp.'

Marker Can LeSean McCoy dominate again? [1:56 AM] reports: 'Because the team needs him there when it matters most, his reps during training camp and preseason games are expected to be reduced as well.'

Marker Who will be the third receiver? [1:55 AM] reports: 'Both Little and Hankerson were coveted draft choices when they entered the league. Both had prominent roles within their respective offenses to achieve successful seasons early in their careers. However, both stumbled to get their footing after they parted with the clubs that drafted them. With Watkins sidelined by surgery in the spring, Little and Hankerson had more snaps to get passes from Taylor. Lal believes that their past resumes give them a chance to secure the third spot.'

Marker Bills coach Rex Ryan wraps arms around players others view as too risky [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We’ve all made mistakes. It’s 100 percent. Guys in our locker room, guys in the coaches’ locker room, all over the building, nobody’s perfect. There are a lot of really good people. Nobody’s perfect. Everybody’s made mistakes in their lives. It’s just you try to learn from them and grow from them.”'

Marker Increased communication has players optimistic of defensive resurgence [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I think it’s just really more so players taking ownership,” Lawson says. “We’re the ones that are out there on the field. If we don’t understand it, the coaches can’t play it for us, so we’ve got to do it.”'

Marker The bar can’t get any higher for Bills running backs [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It will be a great challenge, there’s no question,” coach Rex Ryan says. “But it starts with the players. We have really good players. We’ve got a great stable of backs, we’ve got a physical offensive line, and we’ve got a scheme that changes. So it’s not just that you’ve got to stop the power. You might have to stop the counter. Can we run zone plays? Yes. Can we run gap schemes? Absolutely. Can we run zone reads? Yes. We run it all, we run the gamut.'

Marker Filling Mario’s shoes looks like complicated process for Bills [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That leaves a gaping hole in the Bills’ starting lineup. Veteran Manny Lawson is most likely to get the first crack at replacing Shaq Lawson. Manny Lawson is a trusted veteran who has superior football intelligence. But he never has been much of a pass-rush option. Manny Lawson has just 24.5 sacks in 143 career games and only 2.5 over the past two years in Buffalo.'

Marker Bills enter camp hoping to avoid injury bug - for a change [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s ridiculous the amount of injuries we’ve had,” coach Rex Ryan lamented after the Bills were officially eliminated from playoff contention after an ugly loss to Washington in December. “Is that a contributing factor? Of course. And it would be ridiculous if you don’t think it is.”'

Marker Ten positions that figure to have the best competition [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'An undrafted free agent out of Georgia, Morgan can steal the job by showing the Bills he’s better than Carpenter (or at least equal to him) and cheaper. He may also save them a roster spot if he can boom his kickoffs, making Gay expendable.'

Marker Headed to training camp? Here’s what you need to know [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The interactive games area adjacent to the practice fields is a highlight of camp for youths. It is open whenever the Bills practice. There will be a Bills Super Slide for kids. Here’s a rundown of the challenges...'.

Marker A guide to the newcomers at Bills’ training camp [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Arenas provides cornerback depth, but to make the roster he’ll have to win the punt-return job. The good news for him is the Bills do not have a lot of proven options for that job. He has a decent chance of doing just that.'

Marker If Tyrod Taylor wants mega contract, Bills say prove it [1:51 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'If he gets off to a great start in 2016 and convinces the Bills he’s their man, perhaps the organization will try to complete an in-season extension and prevent Taylor from hitting free agency in March, similar to what it did with Ryan Fitzpatrick in 2011. On the flip side of that scenario, maybe Taylor will bet on himself by playing the season out and then jumping into the free agency pool to see what he can get from someone else.'

Marker Pro Bowler LeSean McCoy returns home to host Play60 event in Harrisburg [1:50 AM]
Harrisburg Patriot News reports: '"Fortunately for us, LeSean hasn't forgotten about his roots," said Paul Kreider, who helped coach McCoy at McDevitt and remains a close mentor. "His family is in the area, his parents live in Harrisburg. He cares about the place, and it cares about him."'

Marker Will Sammy Watkins make the Pro Bowl? [1:48 AM] reports: 'That’s if he can stay healthy. Sammy Watkins missed most of Buffalo’s spring workouts after having surgery to repair a broken bone in his foot. Earlier this week, Watkins told reporters in Buffalo that he feels good about his recovery and his chances of being ready for the start of training camp.'

Marker Roster turnover has Bills special teams rebuilding and aiming to bounce back [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You’d rather the cycle not have such an exodus,” special teams coordinator Danny Crossman told the team’s official website earlier this offseason. “You’d like to keep some guys and maintain that nucleus, but that’s just how it works sometimes. It’s going to be one of those years with how the situation has worked out that we’ll have a bunch of new faces, but it’s also exciting at the same time.”'

Marker Get to know the Bills' opponents: Offseason recap of the Cincinnati Bengals [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Is this the year the Bengals finally get over the hump in the playoffs? Cincinnati has won 52 regular-season games the past five seasons, but has lost on wild-card weekend every time. In fact, the Bengals haven't won a playoff game since 1991. The roster is stacked with talent, but so far, coach Marvin Lewis hasn't been able to get the most out of it when stakes are highest.'
