Marker Bucky Gleason's Power Take: Beane should remember his message before signing Maclin [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills coach Sean McDermott knew Maclin from their two seasons together in Philadelphia. McDermott can assume his mentor, Chiefs coach Andy Reid, had good reasons for dumping Maclin. By signing him, Beane would run the risk of veering from his own message.'

Marker With each losing season, Super Bowl Era Bills die a little bit inside [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I’ve said it numerous times and others have echoed it, ‘We’re thrilled to be back here. It’s like you’ve gone home again,’ ’’ said Hall of Fame general manager Bill Polian, 74, the architect of those clubs. “But it’s time for a new generation of stars to step forward and make their mark. We’ve done our thing. Let’s have new guys step forward and do things and get that same feeling of excitement and pride that we’re so happy to have been a part of.’’'

Marker Thurman Thomas doesn't think Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is slowing down any time soon [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"He's a young 29," Thomas said at Jim Kelly's annual charity golf tournament. "I think he's a young 29. I know everybody says, 'Oh, he's 30 that's when he goes down.' With this guy, I don't see it. I don't see it happening."'

Marker Despite another change, Bills greats still trying to Bill-eve [1:54 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“(McDermott) wanted to know what we knew, he wanted to know what we thought. I like what they’ve got. Now it’s just a matter of the team getting the talent around him, or getting his type of guys, and learning the system,” Talley said.'

Marker Buffalo Bills’ LeSean McCoy makes $200K bet on Warriors [1:53 AM]
Las Vegas Review Journal reports: 'NFL players are prohibited from betting on NFL games and making promotional appearances at casinos, but are allowed to wager on other team sports, per the league’s gambling policy, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy confirmed in an e-mail to the Review-Journal.'

Marker LeSean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor putting full-court press on WR Jeremy Maclin to sign with Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'McCoy and Maclin spent six years together with the Philadelphia Eagles. As recently as a couple weeks ago, McCoy stood up in Maclin's wedding.'

Marker Tyrod Taylor, LeSean McCoy can see Jeremy Maclin fitting in with Bills [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Would love to have a guy like him on our team competing and coming out and making plays for us,” said Taylor, who was at Frontier Field with several other Bills to take part in LeSean McCoy’s annual charity softball game and home run derby. “Would especially mean a lot to our wide receiver room, putting another veteran guy with a whole bunch of talent and still potential left to reach his best. I would love to have him.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills in preliminary talks to sign free agent WR Jeremy Maclin (report) [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Buffalo's interest in Maclin should come as no surprise. Wide receiver is one of the Bills' weakest positions in terms of talent and depth.'

Marker Buffalo Bills LeSean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor trying to recruit WR Jeremy Maclin [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Not to brag, but I was the first guy he talked to when the news broke," McCoy said at his charity softball game in Rochester Sunday. "I kind of understand because I've been through it. Maybe not to the extreme of being released, but being traded. That's basically telling you, 'You're not good enough for us.' I understand that. He was hurt, but I played with him and I know the guys in the locker room and I know he can help us out tremendously. I've been doing my recruiting already. Don't be surprised if it happens."'

Marker Bills players recruiting WR Jeremy Maclin, report says team is interested [1:55 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '"You don't know the reason, but from what I know and what I've seen of Jeremy Maclin, he's definitely a great player,” Taylor, who was competing in McCoy’s event on Sunday, said to reporters. “Would love to have a guy like him on our team competing and coming out and making plays for us. It would especially mean a lot to our wide receiver room, putting another veteran guy with a whole bunch of talent and still potential left to reach his best. I would love to have him."'

Marker Report: Bills & WR Jeremy Maclin in 'preliminary talks' [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Taylor could benefit from having another threat on the outside. Prior to an injury plagued season a year ago, which limited Maclin to just 12 games and 536 receiving yards, in 2014 and 2015 he had back to back 1,000 yard receiving seasons and combined to score 18 touchdowns.'

Marker Fred Jackson: 'I'm not ready to hang ‘em up yet' [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '“I want to play and it’s one of those where we’ll see what happens,” he said during the Kelly for Kids Foundation Gala on Sunday. “Training camps are around the corner and if teams lose a back or two, maybe they’ll give me a call.'

Marker Happy and healthy in Buffalo, Bills RB LeSean McCoy chasing history [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You go from a place where you’re always there to somewhere else, you’ve got to adjust and adapt, and I’ve done that. This is like home to me.”'

Marker Jay Skurski's Bills Mailbag: All things Jeremy Maclin, new stadium talk and a playoffs timeline [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So what's the likelihood the Bills sign him? That depends on Maclin's price tag, for starters. The Bills have shown with their interest in tight end Gary Barnidge recently that they're not against adding to the roster at this point, but spending big money to do it doesn't seem to be in their plans. With about $15 million in space under the salary cap, they should have room to do just about anything they want, including go after Maclin, who should have some good years left at 29.'

Marker What they're saying: Early 2017 predictions for the Bills [1:57 AM] reports: 'National NFL reporters make some early predictions about the team’s 2017 record, LeSean McCoy’s chances to win the rushing title, and fantasy football prospects for Sammy Watkins, Tyrod Taylor, Jonathan Williams and Zay Jones.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: Taylor isn't under all that much pressure [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In his case, though, it's more about being able to preserve what is left of his stature in the NFL after taking a $10-million pay cut over two years to remain with the Bills. That only happened because the rest of the league, including some of its most quarterback-needy teams, spoke loudly about how it perceives Taylor.'

Marker Buffalo Bills roster shows strength on both lines, weaknesses at WR and DB [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Now, the group I’m most concerned about is linebacker. Lorenzo Alexander is nothing more than a third-down pass rusher, Preston Brown is mediocre, and Reggie Ragland is essentially an unproven rookie coming off a serious knee injury. They just signed Gerald Hodges. OK, whatever. Ramon Humber? Plus, neither of the rookie draft picks figures to play much. Let’s hope Doug Whaley was right about Ragland when he drafted him in the second round in 2016.'

Marker 5 reasons the Buffalo Bills could sign free agent WR Jeremy Maclin [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'No one can argue that wide receiver is one of the Bills' weakest positions. The Bills' top three receivers entering the season are Sammy Watkins, Zay Jones and Andre Holmes. Watkins is a dynamic player when healthy, but a foot injury limited him in 2016. Zay Jones should be a quality addition to Buffalo's offense, but the rookie is currently dealing with a knee sprain. Holmes, Buffalo's top free agent addition at receiver, is coming off of a 14 catch campaign. There's plenty of question marks with Buffalo's top three and beyond.'

Marker Bills Today: Beane leaves good first impression on MMQB [1:56 AM] reports: 'And so now, a less than a month later, it’s time to give Beane his share of credit. Not only does the organization have the alignment it’s lacked—assistant GM Joe Schoen worked with Beane in Carolina, and with VP of player personnel Brian Gaine in Houston—the Bills didn’t have to push candidates into jobs where they weren’t qualified.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: Too early to say Watkins is headed toward being a bust [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Watkins can't escape the fact that fellow '14 classmate Odell Beckham Jr., has produced overwhelmingly better numbers despite being selected eight spots later.'

Marker Bills sign cornerback Greg Mabin, release safety Jonathan Dowling [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Mabin joined the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as an undrafted free agent from Iowa. The Bucs released him on May 9.'

Marker Zach Brown aims for NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I'll make other head coaches pay for not drafting me or picking me up," Brown said. "I feel (people) still don't respect me, so for me I have to prove myself again. I always play with a chip on my shoulder. If you don't respect my game, I will make you respect my game.'

Marker ESPN Insider predicts Buffalo Bills' Tyrod Taylor to make biggest leap forward [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"OK, laugh, but I'll say Tyrod Taylor," said Graziano. "He has the eighth-best Total QBR in the league since the start of the 2015 season -- better than guys such as Russell Wilson, Matthew Stafford, Carson Palmer, Philip Rivers and Andrew Luck. And that has been with Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy missing 16 combined games over the past two seasons. Taylor knows new Bills offensive coordinator Rick Dennison from their time together in Baltimore, which bodes well for his ability to take another step forward in 2017."'

Marker Buffalo City Council President trying to spark change with Bills rookie tour [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Pridgen certainly has a valid point and one that should lead to an improvement on the tour. While the tour can be improved, the team attempts to coordinate a day-long event with multiple stops for more than 20 players. It would be unrealistic to see all Buffalo has to offer in that short time, but Pridgen's suggestions would be a step in the right direction.'

Marker Peterman comparisons: The ceiling is the roof for new Bills QB [1:54 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Peterman, a fifth-round pick (171st overall) in the recent 2017 NFL Draft, has a long road ahead of him if he plans to stick around in the NFL, or even become a starting quarterback.'

Marker Why Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins isn't a bust [1:53 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'In 2017, he'll get another chance to show us what he can do. And he should be healthy. As long as he stays on the field, he won't have to worry about these silly labels.'

Marker Bills sign a cornerback [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'To make room for Mabin the Bills have released defensive back Jonathan Dowling. Dowling was signed to the Bills practice squad at the end of the 2015 season. He tore his ACL in the third pre-season game in 2016, and missed the entire season.'

Marker LeSean McCoy wants 10,000 yards - and much more [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Well, Derek Boyko does a great job reminding me year-in and year-out,” he said with a laugh while gesturing to the Bills new PR Director who worked for the Eagles while McCoy was in Philadelphia. “I remember when I first got into the NFL as a rookie, he didn’t talk to me that much. Then my next year, when I was playing, he always would tell me that I have a shot. I have a shot, as a talent, to be a Hall of Famer. So that was kind of his motivation for me. Now we’re here and he feeds me the numbers and stats. The only thing we’re missing is a couple more years, a couple more thousand yards, and some winning games. You know, that’s what every player strives to do is have a great career. The only thing I’m missing is a ring and some more yards.”'

Marker CB Greg Mabin signs with Bills [1:50 AM] reports: 'A two-year starter in college at Iowa, Mabin (6-2, 200) is a long cornerback who posted 144 tackles, three interceptions, 19 pass breakups, a pair of forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. He saw a lot of passes thrown his way playing opposite Desmond King, a fifth-round pick of the L.A. Chargers.'

Marker Bills Today: TE Barnidge holding out for chance to start [1:49 AM] reports: '"Of course, I would love to be the [number" target="_blank"> one guy," Barnidge said. "I've showed the last two years, with multiple different quarterbacks, I was still able to produce without one single guy, whether it be injuries or just things not working out. I've shown I've been able to produce with multiple guys throwing the ball. But I don't think that's an issue, but if they want me to come in and help mentor, I've got no problem doing that, either."'
