Marker Bartram Trail graduate Nathan Peterman signs contract with Buffalo Bills [1:49 AM]

Back in mid-April Kouandjio was found not fully clothed and in a field after climbing over an electric fence near the scene of an accident on Route 400 in Elma.

WGR-AM reports: 'The 2017 Bills are predicted to win six games or so, according to betting lines.

Marker Buffalo Bills release former second-round pick Cyrus Kouandjio [1:41 AM]

Marker Bills ink Peterman to complete draft class signings [1:39 AM] reports: '“Any QB, any player on this team that should be their mentality,” Peterman said. “They should go compete.

Marker Bills Today: Why Jordan Poyer needed a change [1:38 AM] reports: '“It was a rough three years in Cleveland,” said Poyer in an appearance on the John Murphy Show. “We didn’t win a lot of football games, but met a lot of good friends who I’ll have for the rest of my life. It’s hard. You play this game to win. That’s why you love the game. It’s hard to win on Sundays and it’s tough going into the locker room on Monday, loss after loss after loss and wondering when the switch is going to turn, or if it’s going to turn. I learned a lot and to just keep working and keep pushing and keep getting better.”'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: Whaley might have been reaching on self-congratulations over Darb [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'He conveniently forgot that Darby was drafted to fit Rex Ryan's scheme that asks corners to primarily play man-to-man coverage and that Darby is going to find himself in a different role in the zone-oriented defense of new coach Sean McDermott and defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier – a role that just might not suit him as well.'

Marker Bills host former Raiders WR Rod Streater for visit [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Streater has 127 career receptions for 1,755 yards and 10 touchdowns.'

Marker Jay Skurski's 3 Bills thoughts: Doug Whaley breaks his silence edition [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If there was any doubt the "one voice" policy was simply in place to keep Whaley as far from any live microphone as possible, that should have been erased after listening to the former general manager's meandering, 17-minute interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio on Monday afternoon.'

Marker Buffalo Bills host WR Rod Streater on free agent visit [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Streater, 29, is coming off of a 2016 season in which he caught 18 passes for 191 yards and two touchdowns with the San Francisco 49ers. Before joining the 49ers in 2016, Streater had spent the first four seasons of his career with the Raiders.'

Marker Reports: Bills host pair of veteran free agents [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The 26 year old Hodges was productive last year in San Francisco, racking up 80 tackles, 3 sacks, and 2 interceptions for the 49ers after not having nearly that kind of production for the Vikings his first three years in the league. He’s just about the exact same frame as former Bills LB Zach Brown (6’-1”, 243) who signed with the Washington Redskins, and he’s considered a very good coverage linebacker, exactly what new head coach Sean McDermott likes at that position.'

Marker Bills Today: BR ranks Bills run game high [1:54 AM] reports: 'Williams will replace Gillislee as the second halfback, and the 2016 fifth-round pick from Arkansas has potential as a power back. But the real interest in the Bills backfield will be how they deploy both DiMarco and Tolbert, two veteran fullbacks with wildly different characteristics. With the Falcons, DiMarco was a great blocker, but he would also flex from the backfield to the formation as a receiver everywhere from the slot to out wide.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: Adjustment likely bigger with offensive scheme [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The essence of what Dennison learned from Gibbs is the wide-zone blocking that will have the linemen doing far more lateral movement than they've been used to doing. Expect a noticeable increase in stretch plays that will have McCoy and other ball-carriers following the outside flow of blockers with an eye toward finding cut-back lanes in the defense.'

Marker Report: Bills hosting former 49ers LB Gerald Hodges on free agent visit [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Hodges could represent a good find this late in free agency. The 26-year-old is coming off the best season of his four-year career, starting 12 games and making 83 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions. In 584 defensive snaps, he posted the eighth-highest overall grade of any inside linebacker, according to analytics web site Pro Football Focus.'

Marker Whaley on why Bills fired him: 'We did not produce' [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I think the easiest way to try to get that production up is finding the quarterback," Whaley told co-hosts Jim Miller and Pat Kirwan. "I've always said, it's an easy business, but it's a hard business. It's an easy business, because if you get a franchise quarterback, everything else is a lot easier. But it's hard finding that franchise quarterback."'

Marker Reggie Bush, minus-3 rushing yards and all, wants to play in 2017 [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Going into year 12, I still feel like I have a lot left to prove, a lot left to give this game before I'm done," he said. "I don't want to put a number on how many years I have left. I think once you get past year 10, you just gotta take it one year at a time and go from there. I'm still excited, still looking forward to playing football again this season, still staying in shape, still working out. I plan to be somewhere in September."'

Marker Tim Graham's Power Take: Doug Whaley wasted our time [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Whaley reduced the problem to his failure to find a franchise quarterback. In explaining himself, Whaley revealed yet again he wasn't up to the task.'

Marker Fired Bills GM Doug Whaley takes full responsibility for his fate [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Great owners, great people,’’ Whaley said. “There’s nothing we asked as a personnel department that they said no to. I said it (before), it’s a production-based business and we didn’t produce well enough when I was head of the football operations department and I take full responsibility for that. I don’t blame anybody but myself for that and I wish the Pegulas and the Buffalo Bills all the luck in the world.’’'

Marker LB Andrew Gachkar making free-agent visit with Buffalo Bills on Tuesday [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The veteran linebacker has played in a rotational role throughout his career, but he's known as a quality run stopper. If signed by the Bills, Gachkar would contribute on special teams while adding depth to the position.'

Marker Did former Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley take shot at Rex Ryan? (6 observations) [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"They won't be beating themselves," Whaley said on the Bills under McDermott. "He will have them prepared as well as any coach in the NFL and the game won't be determined on them beating themselves because he will have them prepared."'

Marker Everything Doug Whaley said in first interview since Buffalo Bills fired him [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'I think putting all your effort into trying to find that franchise quarterback but also building that team until you get that. That's a tricky business and it's not easy. If I get a shot again I'm going to try to map out a road map to accomplish both at the same time but try to get that franchise quarterback as quickly as possible.'

Marker Why Buffalo Bills DE Shaq Lawson thinks he fits better in a 4-3 defense than a 3-4 [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Last year, I was going, dropping back in coverage," Lawson said. "This year, I'm pretty much hand in the dirt, set the edge guy and play fast. You don't have to think a lot when you play d-end. Just play fast. It fits me well. It's pretty much the same thing I did at Clemson. The exact same thing I did at Clemson. Set the edge, play fast and being very comfortable in what I do."'
