Marker O-line taking measured approach toward best fits [1:54 AM] reports: '“It’s a case where I want to get my hands on these guys and get out on the grass with them and get a feel for how they learn and how they pick up the things I’m going to teach them,” said Kromer. “I want to make sure that I get a feel for them on how we want to coach them and see what they can do from there. We have a talented room.”'

Marker Bills need to be ready for anything as Draft Day unfolds [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“As a general manager, you’ve got to create a sense of urgency among your scouts because there’s the human tendency to say, ‘Ah, we won’t get that guy and we won’t get that guy,’ ” Polian said. “You never know what’s going to happen, and you always want that information in the files anyway in case that guy should become free at another point. Then, the approach during Draft Day is to stay on top of things. You’ve got to make sure that no opportunity to move up or even move back is overlooked. You’ve got to make sure that you cover every base.'

Marker Was trading up for Sammy Watkins worth it? What the numbers & some pundits say [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While Beckham has become the standard to which Watkins will be held, Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans and Carolina’s Kelvin Benjamin had more catches, yards and touchdowns. Philadelphia’s Jordan Matthews, a second-round pick, had more catches and touchdowns, while fellow second-rounder Jarvis Landry had more receptions.'

Marker Bills’ draft spot better than a 50-50 proposition [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I don’t look at second- and third- round guys as backup players,” said Kelvin Fisher, the Bills’ director of college scouting. “The history that I’ve been in this business, they all end up playing, and some of them end up being great starters.'

Marker NFL seeks to be dropped from Jills wage lawsuit [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cooney said Ferrari and the other former Jills didn’t include the NFL in the suit initially because they didn’t learn of Goodell’s signing and approval of the contracts and the provision requiring the Jills to sign the cheerleading agreement until the Bills included copies of the contracts in the team’s unsuccessful bid to have itself dismissed as a defendant.'

Marker It may be early, but Bills QB competition has begun [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I thought it started when we all got back," said Manuel, who watched the Bills trade for Cassel and sign Taylor in free agency, a warning sign that he was about to enter the battle of his football life. "Even in the film room trying to grasp the offense, it's like a race to see who knows it the best and you want to know it the way (offensive coordinator Greg) Roman does."'

Marker Rex Ryan says nobody knows who will win three-man Buffalo Bills QB competition [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I thought it started when we all got back two weeks ago or three weeks ago," Manuel said. "Even in the film room and trying to grasp the offense because it's like a race to see who knows it the best. Obviously you want to know it just like coach (Greg) Roman does."'

Marker Buffalo Bills exercise fifth-year option on CB Stephon Gilmore [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'After an injury riddled 2013 season, Gilmore emerged as the best player in Buffalo's secondary in 2014. He intercepted three passes and allowed 61 percent of the passes thrown his way to be caught, according to Pro Football Focus.'

Marker Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley reportedly visits Baylor QB Bryce Petty [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Buffalo is obviously in need of a quarterback, and with pick No. 50 being their first selection in the draft, players like Petty are all that will be left. Petty, who turns 24 in May, was one of the most productive quarterbacks in college football over the last few seasons, but he has a few red flags that make him a risky option on day two. He played in a one-read offense and hasn't shown he can make plays when the first read breaks down.'

Marker Jets TE Jace Amaro responds to Rex Ryan’s continuous jabs [1:51 AM]
New York Post reports: '“To be honest with you, I really wasn’t worried about it,” Amaro said. “I had no intention of attacking anybody, especially Rex. I have the utmost respect for the guy. He gave me a chance to play in this league before anybody else. That’s an everlasting thank you to him.”'

Marker Jets' Jace Amaro on Buffalo Bills' Rex Ryan ripping him: 'That's the way he is, [1:50 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: '"I guess it's just one of those things," Amaro said Tuesday, as the Jets opened a three-day voluntary minicamp. "I'm not really sure what you want me to say. That's the way he is, I guess. I didn't take it as any insult. I really didn't even look at any of them [Ryan's comments], besides the first one. I'm just worried about this team and what we have to do now.'

Marker What similarities does Ryan Fitzpatrick see in Chan Gailey's Jets offense, to Buffalo Bills [1:49 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Gailey used a spread offense in Buffalo, and while it looks like he'll employ something very similar with the Jets, it's too early to determine exactly what the offense will look like.'

Marker Jets tight end: No issues with Rex Ryan [1:48 AM]
Bergen Record reports: '"I had no intention of attacking anybody, especially Rex," Amaro said Tuesday during the first day of voluntary minicamp. "I have the utmost respect for the guy. He gave me a chance to play in this league before anyone else, so that’s an everlasting thank you to him."'

Marker Bills pick up 5th-year option on Stephon Gilmore's contract [1:47 AM]
AP reports: 'Gilmore has been a three-year starter in Buffalo since being selected with the 10th pick in the 2012 draft out of South Carolina. He had a career-best three interceptions last season.'

Marker Jets' Amaro not bothered by Rex Ryan's criticisms [1:46 AM]
AP reports: 'Amaro took the high road when asked if he's looking forward to the two games against the Bills — in Week 10 at home and Week 17 at Buffalo — because Ryan is apparently planning to make sure the tight end is not a factor for the Jets.'

Marker Bills pick up option on Gilmore [1:45 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'Gilmore, the 10th overall pick of the 2012 draft, has been a key part of a Buffalo defense that permitted a league-low 16 passing touchdowns and allowed the third-fewest yards through the air last season.'

Marker Bills exercise Gilmore's option [1:44 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The sides can continue to work on a potential long-term deal.'

Marker Bills' Ryan seemed to really enjoy getting his team on the field [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'We all want to know who the starting quarterback is going to be against Indianapolis or maybe we want to know who’s the front runner. Ryan just isn’t going to give up that information right now, “All the guys and you can throw Tuel in there, but I’m being realistic, the three top guys in my opinion, you don’t know how it’s going to shake out. We might predict this or predict that and if you polled everybody, there’s nobody that’s going to be lined up exactly, so let’s let it shake out. I feel good about the three guys, but by the time we end it, there’ll be a clear guy at number one.”'

Marker Bills exercise 5th-year option on Gilmore [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The option being picked up means the cornerback will be guaranteed just north of $11 million once the 2016 league year begins. The team and Gilmore can also negotiate a long-term agreement to keep him in Buffalo. With players like Marcell Dareus, Nigel Bradham, and Cordy Glenn all entering the final year of their deals, that would be the ideal situation for the Bills to keep Gilmore and lower his cap number to free up money to sign others.'

Marker Report: Bills GM Doug Whaley to visit Bryce Petty [1:41 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Petty threw for 3,855 yards with 29 touchdown passes and five rushing touchdowns. Petty and the Baylor Bears lost the Goodyear Cotton Bowl 42-41 to Michigan State. Petty had 550 yards and three touchdown passes in that contest.'

Marker QB rotation begins at veteran minicamp [1:40 AM] reports: '“They all got reps,” said Ryan. “(Jeff) Tuel is probably the only one, he probably got a little bit shortchanged, but he did get a number of reps as well. But the top three were getting the exact same number of reps. Jeff (Tuel), he got plenty of reps, but it wasn’t the exact number those guys had.'

Marker Bills pick up fifth-year option on CB Stephon Gilmore [1:39 AM] reports: '“Because we’ve drafted so well (our attention) turns to our own players,” said Whaley on the John Murphy Show in the wake of their busy signing period in March. “Marcell Dareus, Cordy Glenn, Nigel Bradham, Stephon Gilmore, they will be our free agency next year.”'

Marker 5 Storylines to follow in Rex Ryan’s first minicamp [1:38 AM] reports: 'Ryan has said more than once that the quarterback competition will be balanced in its approach as the offensive staff makes a concerted effort to rotate the four QBs on the roster through in an effort to provide equal snaps. Still, there will be an order by which the signal callers rotate through. Who will be first, second, third and fourth on Tuesday, and will that order change on Wednesday and Thursday?'

Marker Bills waive Green [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Green was a January signing of the Bills.'

Marker Sammy Watkins not worth sitting out Round 1 [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'That all said, I'm in the camp that feels it wasn't worth giving up so much for Watkins. That even after a flurry of encouraging off-season moves, the overall state of the Bills would be better with those first- and fourth-round picks to play with this weekend had Whaley not gotten so aggressive.'

Marker Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly refuses to be sacked by adversity [1:57 AM]
Fort Wayne News Sentinel reports: '“I'm going charge everybody in this room: If you're going to see somebody sick or somebody struggling, go there to make their day better by what you say to them, how you act, the smile on your face,” Kelly said. “They might not be feeling good, but you can make that better, give them one more day where they're smiling.”'

Marker Busy offseason makes up for Bills lacking 1st-round pick [1:56 AM]
AP reports: 'Though Whaley insists it's his intention to take "the best player available," the Bills still have pressing needs at offensive line, defensive back and quarterback.'

Marker Bills should look to deal for 2016 picks [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Over the past three years, outside of first-rounders, there have been twelve trades involving future draft picks. Of those twelve, four of them (three involving the Browns) saw a team deal their pick in the current draft straight-up for one the following season. And in every single instance, that team got back a pick one round higher as a reward for their patience...'

Marker Bills should draft a quarterback [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Now, I'm not saying they should draft a quarterback for the sake of doing it in round two or three. But, if the Bills have a second round grade on a QB then grab him at 50. If the grade is lower than that spot on the board, trade down to acquire another pick this year or next year and then take the quarterback. Same story in round three at pick 81 in the event the next best quarterback after Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariotta on the Bills board has a third round grade.'

Marker Bills Seven Round Mock Draft [1:53 AM]
Bills Daily reports: 3-17 ( #81 overall) QB Garrett Grayson - Colorado St.
