Buffalo Bills News - June 2, 2017

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."'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: There still might be a place for Barnidge [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It doesn't take much to conclude that Barnidge is looking for more money than the Bills, and other NFL teams, are willing to pay at this point. He knows he has something to offer that the Bills could use, which is the ability to make a difference as a receiver. The Cleveland Browns cut him right after they drafted tight end David Njoku, and their youth movement didn't have room for the 31-year-old Barnidge.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Power Take: Bills' right tackle spot nothing to take lightly [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'For years, left tackle has been regarded as the premier spot on the offensive line and the pay scale (left tackles make double what right tackles make) reflects as much. The lofty status is rooted in the fact most quarterbacks are right-handed, and left tackles protect "the blind side." That was the title of the book, which became a movie, chronicling the life of tackle Michael Oher.'

Marker Jay Skurski's 3 Bills thoughts: ESPN's on to something, PFF's under-25 list, a yearly [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While it might look odd on the surface to replace so many players signed as a free agents this offseason, it would be worth it. It’s not like those players would necessarily be gone for good, either. Let’s say the Bills release Ducasse, Davis and Holmes before Week One. They would carry some dead money on the salary cap and potentially lose those players to other teams, but if they didn’t sign elsewhere, the Bills could simply bring them back in Week Two, which is exactly what they did in 2016 with fullback Jerome Felton. And if they do sign elsewhere? Oh well. A third-round pick is probably worth it.'

Marker Goodwin on what 49ers saw in him: 'I'm always open and I'm fast' [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“People assumed I couldn’t run routes. So when they actually see me run routes, they’re like, ‘Wow, this dude’s fast and he can stop fast and he can run routes, and he can catch.’ It sickens me that people would think I’m just this fast dude who can’t run routes or can’t catch.”'

Marker Darryl Talley explains how winners are wired, compares Sean McDermott to a young Marv Levy [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Talley is so excited about McDermott the 14-year linebacker said "he's the best thing the Bills have gotten since Marv. He reminds me of a younger version of what Marv Levy would have been like."'

Marker Vic Carucci: It's OK for players to like their coach [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"When players know that you’re pulling for them and trying to get them to do their best, that's usually a pretty good combination," he wrote. "I know I’d rather play for somebody I like than somebody I don’t like."'

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins on verge of becoming a bust, says FOX Sports [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Watkins is trending toward becoming a bust because he's missed so much time, and when he has been on the field, he's struggled a bit - particularly this past season. It's unfair to call a player a bust simply based on injuries, which is why Watkins has avoided that label up to this point, but another injury-plagued season - or one with fewer than 1,000 yards - and Watkins will be in the conversation after going fourth overall in 2014."'

Marker Buffalo Bills QB Tyrod Taylor under pressure before season begins, says [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"When the off-season began, it looked for all the world like Taylor and the Bills were headed for a divorce," said Burke. "Instead, Taylor agreed to a restructured deal that could keep him around through 2018--the final three years (2019-21) all will be voided, at a '19 dead-money penalty of around $5.6 million. He's penciled in atop the depth chart again, but the Bills have been hesitant to go all on him as QB1. Earlier this month, in an interview with The MMQB's Peter King, new GM Brandon Beane promised "open competition" under center. Taylor, 28 in August, is fighting to keep his job and trying to pin down enough value to buoy his post-'18 contract demands."'

Marker Breaking down the 90: Buffalo Bills cornerbacks (5/31/17) [1:51 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'However, don't expect Seymour to just be handed the job at nickel. That's where our 'Don't Sleep On' candidate comes into play: Leonard Johnson. The former Buccaneers and Panthers player, Johnson has familiarity with Sean McDermott's system and has even worked with the first-team during OTAs as the nickel corner -- over the likes of Seymour.'

Marker Marv Levy holds book signing for new kids book [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"Go Cubs Go" is Levy's new book described as a "heartwarming story about the journey of a Chicago Cubs fan", which echoes the life of Levy. The book teaches kids to never give up - much like the Cubs franchise.'

Marker New front office begins to shape Bills roster [1:49 AM] reports: '“It’s going great,” Beane told of his department’s meetings thus far. “I meet with my staff and we talk about a short list, who’s out there, who’s not. Then Sean and I talk about areas of weakness on our roster, not necessarily players, but positions where we’re looking to upgrade and fill spots.'

Marker Top 5 moments from the Bills 2017 Rookie Tour [1:48 AM] reports: ' “I was ecstatic,” said OL Dion Dawkins when describing his reaction to seeing Niagara Falls for the first time. “How close to nature I am and to just see how pretty the water is after it goes over the falls. I’m extremely excited.”'

Marker Bills Today: Darby expects more chances for picks [1:47 AM] reports: '"Last year I dropped about four or five picks, so you know, my season wouldn’t have been that horrible if I caught those," he said. "I've just got to work on my hands, and that’s something I’ve been stressing."'

Marker With Stephon Gilmore gone, it's Ronald Darby's time to shine for Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Stephon, he’s a blessed dude. Hard worker,” Darby said. “I learned a lot from him and I'm just going to carry that on. He’s like a true big brother. He's a really quiet dude until he opens up to you. Always here on time, his eating habits, his film study – we're just sitting in the locker room and he's on his iPad, looking at film, looking at film – he's just real driven, and it paid off. You see what he got.”'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: Much more long-term than short-term thinking behind roster build [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There are too many spots in need of upgrading and too many bloated salaries belonging to underachievers that have to be kept until dumping them won't have a crippling cap impact to expect rapid improvement. The Bills have said goodbye to half of the players who appeared in at least one game last season, and it's unrealistic to expect the replacements and the incumbents and the new coaches, with their new schemes, to all mesh in one year.'

Marker Football Outsiders editor: Bills will be 'measurably worse' in 2017 [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Departures will leave the Buffalo Bills depending an awful lot on rookies this year, and rookies don't always fulfill their potential right away (if ever). Two of last year's top three receivers are gone. Two of last year's top three cornerbacks are gone. And while LeSean McCoy is still around to keep the running game dangerous, Mike Gillislee was outstanding last year and losing him really hurts Buffalo's depth."'

Marker Sal's Bills' All-90 depth chart [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Here's how I see the depth chart on both sides of the ball and special teams for the Buffalo Bills after several weeks of OTAs and minicamps...'.

Marker Breaking down the 90: Buffalo Bills Running Backs (5/30/17) [1:55 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'As running backs go, you have to take it with a grain of salt because they are running without any fear of getting hit by opponents. However, the reason why O'Neal has stood out is due to his vision in the zone blocking scheme early on, in addition to how he displays both quickness and explosiveness when he plants his foot in the ground. There is a long way to go, but I've liked what I've seen so far.'

Marker Bills Today: Early signs positive on Dareus [1:54 AM] reports: '“The time that Marcell is putting in, you know, I couldn’t be happier at this point in time,” he said. “I really believe that. He’s bought in to what we’re doing and what Coach Waufle is doing on the defensive front. You know, that said, we have to continue to respect the process, and when you’re a pro that’s ongoing. You do it every day on a consistent basis over the course of time. So, that’s true of our entire team, myself included, so consistency is the key at this point.”'

Marker Jonathan Williams hears opportunity knocking in competition for Bills' backup running back job [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You know every day I just come out here and try to do my best,” Williams said after practice last week. “I’m learning from one of the best backs in the league in LeSean McCoy. This offensive scheme is a great scheme for any running back, so every day I'm just taking it one day at a time.'

Marker Buffalo Bills' LeSean McCoy predicted to win 2017 NFL rushing title [1:58 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Following an impressive campaign, two writers predicted that McCoy would win the 2017 rushing title.'
