Marker Syracuse trio trying out for Buffalo Bills a bit 'starstruck' by Rex Ryan [10:03 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Yeah, I was kind of the same way," Gulley said. "You see this guy on TV, and he comes into the meeting room and you can already see what type of personality he has. I can just see him, he's a great guy. He's laid back, but you can see that he's serious about what he's doing, but he wants us to have fun while doing it."'

Marker Bills get Darby up to speed on the pro game [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“His movement is outstanding,” Ryan said of the team’s second-round draft pick from Florida State. “He can run with probably anybody in this league, so that’s no surprise.”'

Marker Bills announce prices for individual game tickets [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'For gold games, individual ticket prices have gone up $7 -- from $68 to $75 -- for the cheapest tickets from 2014, and $2 for tickets in the most expensive, from $130 to $132.'

Marker Finally, a Bills roster that makes rookies earn it [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'They came from New Jersey to California, Texas to Minnesota. From Florida State to Utah State, Baylor to Bethune-Cookman.'

Marker Rex Ryan stays clear of 'Deflategate' questions at Buffalo Bills practice [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"For me to spend any time thinking about it, obviously that's a league issue and I guess when they determine whatever it is, if anything, then maybe I'll have some focus on it," Ryan said. "But right now, my focus is clearly on this football team and trying to get this thing better. Whatever the league comes up with, obviously we'll address when that happens."'

Marker Ronald Darby the center of attention, and 5 observations from Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"He knows what he's talking about," Darby said. "He wants to coach. He's not the type of coach that will sit back and let you do whatever you want to and try to talk to you later. He wants to fix it right there on the spot and give you a lot details. He helps you a lot."'

Marker Report: Bills, Jets among NFL teams to receive millions of taxpayer dollars to honor veterans [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '$5.3 million was paid by the National Guard alone to 11 NFL teams. A total of 14 NFL teams, including the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets, received money for the program.'

Marker Full roster and 5 things to watch for [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'If John Miller, the former Louisville guard the Bills drafted in the third round, is going to come in and compete for a starting spot, dominating at rookie camp would be a nice start. While the biggest criticisms of Miller center around his movement skills, he may not be tested in this area until he's lined up against the Bills' dominant interior lineman. At the least, the Bills hope to see the powerful run blocker they drafted look like the strongest guy on the line of scrimmage throughout the weekend.'

Marker Bills' O'Leary seeks to get out of grandpa Nicklaus' shadow [1:52 AM]
AP reports: '"His name will always come up," said O'Leary, who prefers to go by Nick. "And I don't have a problem with that. I love him. He's my grandpa. And he's the greatest golfer who ever lived. I mean, that's just how it's going to be."'

Marker Sights and sounds from Bills rookie minicamp [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '2nd round pick (the Bills first in the draft) CB Ronald Darby's hips and change of direction are on a clearly different level than anyone else at his position. His speed is obviously exceptional, but it was very noticeable how explosive he is and can get going, even changing directions.'

Marker Bills Announce Individual Game Ticket Pricing [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'This tiered-pricing system will include four gold games, two silver games, two bronze games and the preseason. Below is a listing of the pricing tier breakdown for the 2015 season, courtesy of the Bills.'

Marker Joe B. Observations: Rookie Minicamp Day 1 [1:49 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Heading into the rookie minicamp, the expectation was that it would be evident that second-round pick Ronald Darby was one of the most talented on the field. Darby did not disappoint in the least bit. You could see how easy he made movement abilities look throughout individual drills.'

Marker Rookie Minicamp: Day 1 [1:48 AM] reports: '“Yeah, that’s one of the small lessons that I’m quickly learning,” Miller said. “When I was in college we were taught to tuck our hands, so it’s kind of hard trying to break that habit. I want to adapt to what coach is teaching. Get your hands out quick so you can control the guy.”'

Marker Bills announce 2015 individual-game pricing [1:47 AM] reports: 'Based on remaining availability, the group ticket on-sale date is set for June 19. Individual game tickets are set to go on sale to the public on July 29. Tickets for some games may not be available.'

Marker Bills OT Cyrus Kouandjio looks to rescue young career [1:59 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"Honestly, it was tough," Kouandjio said. "They (the former staff) had to do what they had to do. That's the past, you know? I'm not really worried about that. You can't live in the past."'

Marker Buffalo Bills miss out on LSU OT La'el Collins, who reportedly signed with Dallas Cowboys [1:58 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills had a bigger need than the Cowboys on the offensive line, but Dallas was able to land the Louisiana native despite Ryan's highly publicized trip to Baton Rouge Monday. Ryan didn't seem interested in answering questions about Collins when asked Wednesday, and now he won't have to answer many more in the future.'

Marker How can Syracuse's Sam Rodgers speak at graduation and try out with Bills on Saturday? [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"They asked if I had anything going on this weekend," Rodgers said. "I just said, 'Nope. I'm free. I'll be there.' In my head I'm thinking, 'Well, I was supposed to speak at graduation.'"'

Marker Did the Buffalo Bills throw up a smokescreen with Bryce Petty meeting? [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Sometimes you do it even by strategy or if there is something with certain visits that you'll bring in people or you don't," Ryan said. "Sometimes we may go visit a school thinking there is a little smokescreen here. I went to visit a certain player that we didn't really think fit us."'

Marker Bills reset 2015: Rex loads up on veterans [1:55 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I'd rather have, in a perfect world, 'this is our guy,' but I'm excited about the competition," said Ryan. "You don't know how it's going to shake out. There's not anybody who knows how it's going to shake out. We're going to give them a platform that will showcase what they can all do, and let's see what happens. Is it a perfect situation? No, I'm not saying it is, but when we end it, it'll be a clear guy who will be No. 1. There are three guys in my opinion, who can be NFL quarterbacks."'

Marker Several players invited for tryouts with Bills [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills have not officially released any of the names or confirmed all of them as of yet, but we can piece together many of them from reports found online via media reports, their school, agent, or personal social media accounts. Here are some names that have been gathered...'.

Marker Rookie minicamp primer [1:53 AM] reports: '“I think when you look at (Ronald) Darby, he’s a guy that obviously has the traits that we look for in a man cover corner,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “I love the fact that he was criticized for not being thrown at. I thought that was pretty interesting to me. Generally, this just in, but you usually don’t throw to a guy that is covered. I like that about him.”'

Marker Former Bills LB Bryan Scott: Life after the NFL [1:52 AM] reports: '“The NFL is more of a job, not a career, because it doesn’t last very long,” Scott said. “If you’re blessed to stay in it, one thing is for certain: if you’re a player now, one day you will become a former player. Don’t make it your life. Enjoy it, live in the moment yes, and just understand that one day it will end."'

Marker Kouandjio puts lost season behind him [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I learned that you can’t mistakes,” he said. “You’ve just got to work really hard in the NFL. In college, you could make a mistake here, make a mistake there, you’re stronger, faster, smarter than the guy, you can get away with it. But here, it’s professionals. It takes a lot of work, and this is my job.”'

Marker Ryan defends Bills’ background checks on draft picks [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I had the benefit of meeting most of these players, and I feel great,” he said. “No player that we have in that locker room is perfect. Everybody’s had something in their lives they’re probably not proud of. I know certainly I’ve had more than my share.'

Marker McCoy’s revelations have no real merit [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It makes McCoy seem petty and resentful, like he’s too proud to accept the fact that Kelly got rid of him because he didn’t feel he was worth top running back money. Maybe what Kelly didn’t like was backs who don’t always hit the hole and run sideways at times.'

Marker Ryan mum on McCoy's comments, dinner with Collins [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"You see how fast he got rid of all the good players, especially all the good black players; he got rid of them the fastest," McCoy said, referring to himself and wide receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin. McCoy, who was traded by Kelly to the Bills in exchange for linebacker Kiko Alonso in early March, then added, "There's a reason he got rid of all the black players — the good ones — like that," though he didn't elaborate on what he actually meant.'

Marker Brady deserves four-game suspension [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Given the serious punishment handed out in Spygate (first-round draft pick taken from Patriots), Bountygate (a year's suspension for Saints coach Sean Payton), Textgate (four games for Browns GM Ray Farmer) and Noisegate (fifth-round draft pick and suspension of Falcons president/CEO Rich McKay from the competition committee), I'd expect at minimum a four-game suspension for Brady, the Patriots stripped of a first-round draft pick and some hefty fines.'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan explains why team took chances on Ronald Darby, Karlos Williams in NFL [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Well I had the benefit of meeting most of these players and I feel great," Ryan said. "I think there is a player we have in that locker room is perfect. Everybody has had something in their lives that they are probably not proud of. I know certainly I have had more than my share. It does not mean they are a bad person or whatever. These guys I know for a fact will respect the guys in the locker room and that is all I ask. We all respect each other and play your butt off. That is what they are going to do. As far as outside in the community, I expect them to be respectful of the people in the community and to be good characters. I believe we will have that."'

Marker Possible Tom Brady deflategate suspension could benefit Buffalo Bills [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'While the league doesn't have precedent for this type of issue, it's safe to wonder whether Brady could be suspended. Any time the star quarterback misses for New England would only help the Bills' cause of getting a leg up in the AFC East, but it's also worth noting that the Bills play the Patriots in Week 2.'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan won't 'put muzzle on' LeSean McCoy, any other player [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We are not going to be lined up, but I think it is better for our fans just like you guys reporting here—this goes to our fans and I would rather be honest," Ryan added. "We are not going to be 100-percent lined up. Why? Because we do not feel like we have to come out and, 'Here is a blank statement.' Somebody reads it and then he is going to follow it up."'
