Buffalo Bills News - July 25, 2017

Marker Training camp countdown: 3. How many new starters will there be on the offensive line? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills wouldn't have moved up into the second round to draft Dawkins if they didn't think he could challenge for a starting job in short order. Mills was the Bills' lowest-graded offensive lineman in 2016, according to PFF. He allowed seven sacks and was called for four holding penalties.'

Marker Bills notebook: Boldin, 3 D-linemen visit; Washington pleads not guilty [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Boldin has 1,076 career receptions for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns.'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Power Take: O.J. Simpson is nothing more than a convicted felon [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Simpson is a narcissistic former football star, actor and con man was found innocent of two murders and later convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping. He's a felon who did his time. That's my two cents. He's not worth a penny more. Ironically, in my attempt to minimize him, he still made the headline.'

Marker 19,000 took part in Independent Health-Buffalo Bills challenge [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The series of six-week challenges – which started in the fall of 2014 – was designed to help people bring more physical activity and good nutrition into their daily lives. Prizes sweeten the desire for challenge participants, who are asked to meet three daily goals: Do 20 minutes of physical activity; eat five servings of fruits and vegetables; and drink eight glasses of water.'

Marker 10 questions on everyone's mind heading into Bills Training Camp [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Taylor is 15-14 as the Bills’ starter, as mundane as it gets, though he’s actually done better than most Bills quarterbacks throughout their history. However, he still makes more plays with his legs than he does his arm which is not what you want from your quarterback. And there are too many throws that he doesn’t make, or doesn’t make well enough, robbing the Bills of potential big plays. And yet, despite his deficiencies, he guided a Buffalo offense that scored 399 points in 2016, most in a season since 1998, a total that ranked them tied for 10th in the NFL. Their 46 offensive touchdowns were the fourth-most in team history, and the 12 turnovers set a new franchise low. Maybe new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who Taylor worked with briefly in Baltimore in 2014, can get more out of him this season. If not, his time in Buffalo will likely end.'

Marker Samsung Frankfurt Universe QB Marcus McDade works out for Buffalo Bills (report) [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'It's unknown why the Bills held a work out with McDade as the team enters training camp with Tyrod Taylor, T.J. Yates, Nathan Peterman and Cardale Jones already on their roster.'

Marker Buffalo Bills host Roy Miller, Leger Douzable, Devon Still on free-agent visits [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'All three of these veterans play on the interior of the defensive line. The Bills could be assessing their options in the event that second-year defensive tackle Adolphus Washington is suspended or the team decides to move on from him after his recent arrest. He pleaded not guilty to a concealed weapon charge after getting arrested outside of an Ohio water park a few weeks ago.'

Marker USA Today predicts Buffalo Bills to finish with NFL's third worst record in 2017 [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Buffalo currently owns the league's longest playoff drought so it's understandable that Davis and USA Today don't see the team making the playoffs, but 4-12 may be a bit too low in terms of where the Bills fall.'

Marker 10 Buffalo Bills veterans on the roster bubble entering training camp [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Among the offensive veterans listed, T.J. Yates may have the best odds of cracking Buffalo's 53-man roster. Yates enters training camp as the favorite for the Bills' backup job due to his knowledge of the offense, but he's no roster lock. If rookie Nathan Peterman outperforms Yates for the No. 2 job, Buffalo may have to think long and hard about whether they rather have Yates or Cardale Jones as their third quarterback. Jones' upside could prove to be more valuable than Yates' veteran presence.'

Marker 8 underdogs Buffalo Bills fans will be rooting for at 2017 training camp [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The battle for roster spots at wide receiver should be wide open at training camp, and don't be surprised if fans take a liking to Brandon Reilly. The former hockey player walked on to the Nebraska football team, so he's in a familiar spot as an undrafted free agent in Buffalo. He's a bit undersized and doesn't have the breakaway speed, but he makes a lot of tough catches and could stand out during camp.'

Marker Former Buffalo Bills TE Chris Gragg talks injury, future, being a free agent in 2017 [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '"It was really a freak injury. Most ACLs, most people do it non-contact when they're running and cutting. Mine came from an actual," Gragg said.'

Marker 5 storylines as the Buffalo Bills enter training camp [1:48 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Is Tyrod elite?: Just a little shout out to his former teammate Joe Flacco with the section header, but this is a vital year in quarterback Tyrod Taylor's career. As mentioned before, he's in a new offensive system and the team has doubled-up on first-round picks in next year's draft, presumably to grab another quarterback to groom with rookie Nathan Peterman. Additionally, Taylor, 27, is essentially on a one-year contract once again. What must he do to lock up a long-term deal?'

Marker Buffalo Bills: 5 things to watch at 2017 training camp [1:47 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'Peterman probably isn't going anywhere. The Bills could easily keep him as a No. 3 option. The question then is who will be No. 2? Will the Bills go with another young quarterback in Jones? Or will they sign Yates as a veteran option in case Taylor gets hurt? That's a competition worth watch.'

Marker 'We're looking to accrue good football players': Q&A with Bills' McDermott [1:46 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '“Well, it’s always a challenge because of the limited opportunities that we do get. We try to make the most of those opportunities and encourage the players to do the same. Even though they may start off at one position on the depth chart, and may have fewer opportunities than somebody else in the upper part of the depth chart, they can make the most of those opportunities. When they do that, that’s controlling what they can control. And that’ll grab our attention.”'

Marker Bills DT Washington pleads not guilty to weapons charge [1:45 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'A pre-trial hearing for Washington is set for Aug. 1, according to the Hamilton County Municipal Criminal and Traffic Court.'

Marker Adolphus Washington pleads not guilty to misdemeanor gun charge [1:44 AM]
ESPN reports: '"I believe the charges are factually and legally inappropriate," Washington's attorney, Clyde Bennett, told ESPN. "I don't believe that Mr. Washington committed any crimes. That is why we have filed a motion to dismiss. Our intent and plan is to have the charges against him dismissed."'

Marker Bills' camp questions: Can Marcell Dareus rebound from lost 2016? [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Hopefully the new regime, the new culture, the new way of doing things -- what you'd like to see is for Marcell to jump on board,” Beane said. “And not only do it himself, but he's been in the league long enough, you'd like to see him grabbing some others. First of all, before you can lead, you have to do it yourself. I'm not just talking about Marcell. That's anybody."'

Marker Bills DT Washington pleads not guilty to weapons charge [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Whether it's related or not to Washington, the Bills had three defensive tackles in for a visit on Monday in Devon Still, Leger Douzable, and Roy Miller.'

Marker Report: Bills host QB Marcus McDade for workout [1:41 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'There's no debate: Tyrod Taylor is the unquestioned starter heading into 2017. But it is fair to question what a potential signing could mean for Cardale Jones and Nathan Peterman.'

Marker Bills host WR Anquan Boldin on free agent visit [1:40 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'While Boldin's production in terms of yards were the lowest of his career (584 yards) he remained one of the most reliable receivers in the red zone with six of his eight touchdowns coming inside the 20, which ranked tied for ninth among the position.'

Marker USA Today predicts Bills to go 4-12, Patriots to have perfect season [1:39 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Now, a 4-12 record could be music to Bills fan's ears, especially considering the club owns two first round picks in the 2018 draft.'

Marker Bills DT Adolphus Washington pleads not guilty to weapons charge [1:38 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Washington's lawyer Clyde Bennett told 7 Eyewitness Sports Reporter Nick Filipowski the charges against his client are "factually and legally inappropriate" and that he's filed a motion to dismiss the case.'

Marker Free agent WR Boldin visits Bills [1:37 AM] reports: 'Despite being a 14-year vet, Boldin proved durable last season. He appeared in all 16 games and was on the field for 80 percent of the Lions’ snaps on offense.'

Marker 4 - Can McCoy reach 2,000 total yards? [1:36 AM] reports: '“He’s a playmaker,” said fellow back Jonathan Williams. “He’s not just a running back. He can run the ball between the tackles. He can run outside. He can line up outside and threaten a defense there. It’s just about matchups. How can you create a matchup?"'

Marker Bills Today: Beane and McDermott plan steady dialogue with Pegulas [1:36 AM] reports: '“We’ll set something up during the season that I think Sean and I talked about a little bit depending on what they’ve got going on and where they’re at,” said Beane. “If they haven’t been in town for the week, we’ll set up a call to talk about how the week went and a little about the opponent and what to expect in the game based on who we have available injury-wise and what’s going on versus them. Anything that could be changing roster-wise (will also be communicated), but Terry and Kim are better than I realized the day I signed up. That’s the God’s honest truth.'

Marker Training camp countdown: 4. What will Sean McDermott do about Adolphus Washington? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After preaching the importance of character since he was hired in January, how McDermott handles the situation with Washington will be closely scrutinized. Will the Bills simply let the legal process play out? Or will they try to make an example out of Washington, knowing that the second-year defensive tackle is a replaceable player?'

Marker Bills' Tyrod Taylor finds himself having to prove he's a franchise QB [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I feel like at my position, you have to prove it every year,” he said. “Contract or no contract, that’s my mindset. It’s a standard you set for yourself and a standard we set as a team and you want to go out there and prove that every week. That’s my focus, meeting that standard and even exceeding it as well.”'

Marker Bills' camp battles: five starting spots with the most competition [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In a perfect world, rookie Zay Jones wins this job and the coaching staff knows they have a solid wideout for the next several years. But it's not a perfect world and there is certainly competition for the spot opposite Sammy Watkins.'

Marker How losing Brandon Beane may have played a role in the Panthers firing GM Dave Gettleman [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'According to the Observer, Beane, known to have a personality that allowed him to talk to and get along with players, coaches, and front office personnel, was a nice buffer between them and the blunt and less personable Gettleman.'

Marker 5 - Who will be the No. 2 wide receiver? [1:55 AM] reports: 'Arguably the most turnover on the Bills roster this offseason occurred in the wide receiver corps. The departure of Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter left a serious hole in the Bills depth at the position. To remedy this turnover, the Bills brought in both veteran and rookie wide receivers. With many new faces, and plenty of roles to be had, the battle at wide receiver should be one of the best at training camp. With starting positions up for grabs, here are the three most likely players to factor into the battle for number two wide receiver.'
