Marker Pollock: Bills made right move declining Watkins’ option [11:20 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The Bills last week demurred on that option year, mostly because of Watkins injury history. If they picked up Year No. 5 they would owe him nearly $13.3 million, a figure he would earn even if he couldn’t pass his 2018 physical. That’s an expensive commitment for a player who might miss all or part of the season.'

Marker Brandon Beane gets second interview for Buffalo Bills' GM job (report) [1:55 AM]

Marker Report: Bills to bring in Beane for second GM interview [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Beane was Buffalo's first interview and had to come with an incredibly strong recommendation from head coach Sean McDermott, otherwise, this pairing would have had no shot of happening. Beane, very much in the mold of the Pegula's reported search for a Buffalo Sabres GM, fits the mold of someone with "new blood" that has plenty of league experience but has never held the permanent title of general manager before.'

Buffalo News reports: 'The troubling details of Kouandjio’s recent incident police, when he was found in a field partially clothed, is concerning.
