Buffalo Bills News - July 22, 2014

Marker Sammy goes deep [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Once again, it was the Sammy Watkins Show. The rookie receiver from Clemson wowed the crowd with his speed, twice getting behind defenders for long touchdown passes from EJ Manuel, once in one-on-one drills and again in 11-on-11 work.'

Marker Sammy Watkins dazzles at Bills camp [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Might this have been a prelude to the upcoming Bills’ season? Fans sure hope so. So does the coaching staff, for that matter.'

Marker Buffalo native Naaman Roosevelt rejoins the Bills [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'He spent the past two seasons on NFL practice squads, with the Detroit Lions last season and the Cleveland Browns in 2012.'

Marker EJ Manuel getting comfortable with Sammy Watkins [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Watkins may be stealing the show early in camp, but there have been plenty of developments in the first two practices.'

Marker Toronto native Stefan Charles doesn't see why anyone would want to move Bills from Buffalo [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I like it here, so I don't see why the Bills would want to leave here," he said. "The fans are great, the city's great."'

Marker Sammy Watkins injury: Bills rookie gets poked in the eye at practice [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills have already had some bad luck with injuries, so watching Watkins go down put a scare into them for a second. Luckily the rookie won't miss a beat.'

Marker Bills receiving little love from national media [1:51 AM]
Watertown Daily Times reports: 'For a successful season — which is now measured by making the playoffs for the first time since 1999 — everything rides on Manuel’s ability. It’s only his second season but he’s under the gun to produce to make the franchise attractive for a potential buyer. Let’s hope it’s not either rocker Jon Bon Jovi, who wants to move the team to Toronto, or loudmouth Donald Trump, who would initiate the Buffalo Shuffle, namely “firing” a massive amount of on-and-off personnel.'

Marker Bon Jovi 'would do the right thing', keep Bills in Buffalo: Jaworski [1:51 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"I know for a fact Jon never said he was going to move the team to Toronto," Jaworski said in an interview at St. John Fisher College, before the Bills' afternoon practice. "I think there was much speculation because people tried to read the tea leaves and said he's talking to guys from Toronto, so he must be trying to move the team to Toronto.'

Marker Continually troubled Marcell Dareus fails conditioning tests [1:50 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"He's just a young guy, but at the same time we hold him accountable just like everybody else," star defensive end Mario Williams said.'

Marker Jon Bon Jovi in the running to buy the Bills [1:49 AM]
New York Post reports: 'Despite Bon Jovi’s Toronto-laden ownership group, the constant speculation around the league about the Bills moving there or to Los Angeles appears to be overblown and more than a bit misguided.'

Marker Spartanburg High product Cohen signs with Buffalo Bills [1:48 AM]
Charleston Post and Courier reports: '“We got it all figured out Saturday night, just a phone call,” Cohen said in a phone interview Monday night. “I'm familiar with some of the guys here, some of the coaches and a little bit of the scheme. I decided that this was the best fit for me.”'

Marker It’s in our interest for the Bills to stay in Buffalo [1:47 AM]
Montreal Gazette reports: 'If the Toronto group succeeds in acquiring the Bills and moving them to Toronto, it might be good for Toronto — but it would be bad for the CFL, CFL cities and Canada. The broad public interest in this country is to see the Toronto bid fail.'

Marker Welcome to Camp Hope [1:46 AM]
SI reports: 'Get the idea? The honeymoon idea? These people aren’t hungry. They’re famished. The Bills haven’t made the playoffs in this century. They’ve had nine straight losing seasons. Imagine not winning 10 games in the past 14 years. Fourteen!'

Marker The Sammy Show [1:45 AM]
SI reports: 'He showed why Whaley surrendered first- and fourth-round picks in the 2015 draft to move up five spots in the first round last May so the Bills could pick him. Smart? We’ll see. The price was beyond exhorbitant, particularly for a team that still plans to key its offense around the running game. Watkins’ talent is tantalizing. And for a team languishing in sub-mediocrity for the past 14 seasons, his arrival’s been like a B-12 shot: energizing.'

Marker Watkins Wows, But in the End It’s Up to E.J. [1:44 AM]
SI reports: 'How this team can be 12–4: Two big things have to happen. Very big. E.J. Manuel has to be more of a chance-taker with two good outside receivers, Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods...Second thing: Marcell Dareus, on the non-football injury list early in camp for failing the conditioning test, has to grow up.'

Marker Sammy Watkins already looks like 'The Guy' at Bills training camp [1:43 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'It's stories like those, and performances like the one Watkins had on Monday, that have this entire franchise giddy. In the midst of a 14-year postseason drought, five years removed from their last season in which they had more than six victories and a month after losing playmaking linebacker Kiko Alonso to a torn ACL, the Bills have plenty of hope. And Watkins is a major reason why.'

Marker Bills DT Dareus to enter substance abuse program [1:42 AM]
AP reports: 'Marrone provided the update after practice Monday, in the latest twist in Dareus' troubled offseason. Dareus was scheduled to return to camp in suburban Rochester later in the day.'

Marker Bills sign Landon Cohen, Naaman Roosevelt [1:41 AM]
AP reports: 'To make room, the Bills released receiver Ramses Barden and linebacker Nathan Williams. The free agent signings Monday come a day after the Bills opened training camp in suburban Rochester.'

Marker Bills sign WR Roosevelt, DT Cohen [1:40 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Cohen joins his sixth club in six seasons. He played for current Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in Detroit during his first two seasons. He also has spent time with New England, Chicago, Dallas and Jacksonville.'

Marker Bills DT Dareus failed conditioning test [1:39 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We're not just going to put him out there every day," Marrone said. "We'll wait until our weight coaches say, 'Hey, you know what, we're ready to go and let's go.'"'

Marker Bills' Dareus excused from camp for court date in Alabama [1:38 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“At the present time, I have excused Marcell,” the coach revealed. “He is taking care of some personal stuff, but he'll be like everybody else. You've seen him before on the side, training and getting ready to pass the physical.”'

Marker Bills' Marrone mum on Glenn's illness [1:37 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I don't know that. It's a medical condition. I'm preparing to go on as if he's not playing, which he's not," Marrone said. "I'm just waiting for the doctors, and I can't speak about the condition because it's something that happened outside of football."'

Marker Naaman Roosevelt back with the Bills [1:36 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Roosevelt will be joined on the roster by former seventh-round pick and defensive tackle Landon Cohen. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound Cohen played with both the Dallas Cowboys and Chicago Bears last season and has eight career starts since entering the league in 2008. He was added likely as a result of the Bills being without both Marcell Dareus and Alan Branch (Active/Non-Football Injury) to start camp.'

Marker Bills' Bradham gets first crack at weakside; devastated for Alonso [1:35 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Any way I can contribute to the team, I know they're counting on me to step up,” Bradham remarked. “They know what I can do and I know what I can do. We can't replace Kiko but you can have some guys step up and make some plays just as well, and that's one of the things you have to do."'

Marker Bills training camp observations: Day 2 [1:34 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Sammy Watkins picked a great day to have his best practice as a member of the Buffalo Bills. With the bigwigs at ESPN, NFL Network, FoxSports1 and the MMQB all in attendance on Monday afternoon, Watkins put on a show for all to see.'

Marker Buffalo Bills aiming to become NFL's next worst-to-first wonder [1:33 AM] reports: 'The situation here feels urgent. As Whaley alluded to, the once-proud Bills last played more than 16 games -- a birthright during the halcyon heyday of Jim Kelly and Co. -- in 1999, and the only owner the franchise has known, Ralph Wilson Jr., passed away in March. The team is up for sale. The brass dealt their 2015 first-round pick to move up five spots in May's draft and come away with Sammy Watkins. Last year's No. 1 was spent on a quarterback. The feeling here, very clearly, is that the time is now.'

Marker D turns up heat, Watkins shines [1:32 AM] reports: '“With the crowd noise and the music that coach Marrone has playing during practice it’s causing us to communicate and guys are just flying around to the ball,” Hughes told “When you turn on the film it’s looking great.”'

Marker Doug Marrone: Sammy Watkins ''a fearless player'' [1:31 AM] reports: 'We brought him in here to do that and he’s done a really good job. He has. He’s made plays in this camp. You guys have seen it. We just need to make sure that we continue developing him. He’s going against good players. He’s working with the first team, so he’s going against our corners and all of our guys. He’s a good football player and I think it’s one that, you sit there and the guy is making plays. I think a lot of people are excited.'

Marker Bills bring back WR Roosevelt, sign DT Cohen [1:30 AM] reports: 'Roosevelt (6-0, 200) returns to the Bills after spending parts of two seasons with the team from 2010 to 2011. He appeared in 16 games and recorded 25 receptions for 396 yards and a touchdown. The University at Buffalo product now gives the Bills four Buffalo natives on their roster, joining Derek Brim, Corey Graham, and Mike Williams.'

Marker Futures hang in balance at Bills' camp [1:32 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'But for those currently employed by the team — specifically, front office staffers, scouting personnel and coaches — there’s a more immediate reality. No matter, the team will have a new owner, possibly even before 2015. And those buying pro sports franchises — given their enormous value — have historically put their own people in the positions of greatest responsibility. That’s why there’s so much inferred pressure on President/CEO Russ Brandon, General Manager Doug Whaley and head coach Doug Marrone, in particular.'
