Marker Pollock: On Bills, Sabres, Big 30 football and long baseball [1:57 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'On the Bills’ current 53-man roster, only 19 players remain from Whaley’s reign (2013-17). Safety Colt Anderson just went on injured reserve, but that number figures to go back up to 20 this week as offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson returns to the roster after serving his 10-game suspension for using what he maintains was “medical marijuana” to counteract Crohn’s disease.'

Marker Seattle Seahawks approached Buffalo Bills about LT Cordy Glenn (report) [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Seahawks had previously approached the Bills about their left tackle, Cordy Glenn, but those conversations largely fizzled. While Glenn could be an option to be moved ahead of the deadline -- Buffalo has a plethora of tackles at a time most teams have a scarcity, and the team is high on several of its young linemen -- it would take a considerable haul to land him. That and his high salary made for a poor fit with the Seahawks.'

Marker Report: Seahawks inquired about trading for Cordy Glenn [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Glenn currently counts $14.2 million towards the Bills' 2017 salary cap. He's scheduled to count $14.5 million in 2018. According to the salary cap website Spotrac, if Glenn were traded he would still count $9.6 million against the teams' cap next year, netting them a cap savings of roughly $5 million.'

Marker Tre'Davious White witnesses historic LSU comeback on Bills bye week [1:54 AM]
KTBS-TV reports: '"Man it meant everything. It felt like I was playing. You can tell man I lost my voice and everything. Man I'm so, I can't explain it right now. When it comes to LSU man and it comes to my players and the guys that I left here, my guys from last year man and it means a lot to me and it means the world to me to have these guys come out with a big victory like this," White said.'

Marker Bills give the gift of game days through ticket donation program [1:53 AM] reports: '“For me, [I donate tickets to" target="_blank"> the Boys and Girls Club because my father always taught me how it was big for him. It was instrumental for him growing up as an adolescent. It kept him off the streets. It kept him from doing things he shouldn’t be doing. It was a nice safe-haven for him. Kids should go play, have fun, get out of the house [and" target="_blank"> just be a kid. I think that’s very important, especially in this time. We really need our kids to be active, have fun and just enjoy their youth.”'

Marker Bills Today: McCoy on pace for best receiving season [1:52 AM] reports: 'Through five weeks McCoy has caught 27 passes for 189 yards. He leads the team in receptions. If this production continues, McCoy would finish the season with 604 receiving yards. That would be a season-high for the nine-year veteran.'

Buffalo News reports: '“Man, we’re a couple plays away from being 5-0,” he says, smiling again. “So, why would I listen to the negative stuff?”'

Marker Tyrod Taylor unfiltered: More from the Bills QB [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Our fans are one of a kind, first and foremost. Energetic. Passionate about football. … Any fan, that’s what they’re emotionally tied into: wins and losses. No one’s more mad (when we lose) than the players – we’re actually going through it. But I understand the fans’ side.”'

Marker Inside the Bills: Analyzing Buffalo's newcomers, and departures, through five weeks [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We are going in a direction we’ve got to continue to move forward and that’s what you do in this business,” coach Sean McDermott said in August on the day after the team traded wide receiver Sammy Watkins and cornerback Ronald Darby. “You put one step in front of the other and we move on. I ask (the fans) to continue to trust me and our decisions in terms of what we’re doing.”'

Marker Bills Backers Club: Two bars, #OneBuffalo in Chicago [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We’re primarily a rock and roll bar, a combination of the original Pink Flamingo and The Continental,” said Delilah’s owner Mike Miller, a Kenmore West High School and University at Buffalo graduate. “We’re not a sports bar. If the Cubs are in the playoffs, we have one TV showing the game. But on Sundays, we show the Bills and we throw a party. We’re wedged in here, standing-room only, chanting, cheering and having fun.”'

Marker Bills alumni to visit ECMC health fair [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Booker Edgerson, Lou Piccone, Jeff Nixon and Ed Rutkowski are among former Bills who will be on hand for the Crucial Catch Day health fair from noon to 3 p.m. in the second-floor cafeteria at the hospital, 462 Grider St.'

Marker The Big Story: Problems & Solutions for the Bills offense [1:54 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: 'Possible solutions seem far and few between. I would like to see the Bills line LeSean McCoy up at wide receiver more often. He’s the only offensive weapon Buffalo has that’s a matchup issue for other teams.'

Marker 5 Questions with Preston Brown [1:53 AM]
WIVB-TV reports: '“Grapes that’s my go-to. More natural sugars with apples and grapes.”'

Marker What Bills fans should watch for on the bye [1:52 AM] reports: 'The three-way tie atop the AFC East will come to an end on Sunday as New England and New York square off at MetLife Stadium. As bad as the Patriots defense has looked, New England still has the number one offense in football and the number three scoring attack in the NFL.'

Marker Bills Today: Defense doesn't miss many opportunities [1:51 AM] reports: 'A major key to the defense's success has been the high rate of takeaways. They also cause a disturbance with their pass deflections and sacks. Buffalo ranks at the top of the NFL in most of the major categories.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Mailbag: Expect Marcell Dareus to be gone after June 1 [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'For the rest of the league, it's a simple case of waiting for the inevitable and signing him after he clears waivers.'

Marker Lorenzo Alexander asked for restaurant ideas. #BillsMafia didn't disappoint. [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Some tweeters gave serious fine dining suggestions like Mulberry in Lackawanna, The Grange in Hamburg, Ristorante Lombardo in Buffalo. Several others invited him over to their homes for a home-cooked meal.'

Marker Tyrod Watch: Escapability Index vs. Bengals, five-game update, plus time-to-throw numbers [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In Cincinnati, Taylor was not only kept in the pocket by the defense more than in any other game this season, he also seemed more willing to read through his progressions from the pocket than usual. That combination led to Buffalo's signal-caller having a significantly difficult time eluding pressure and escaping sacks.'

Marker Buffalo Bills 2017 snap counts: Player participation through Week Five [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Not surprisingly, Nick O'Leary saw a big increase in work after fellow tight end Charles Clay was hurt in the first half. O'Leary played a season-high 59 snaps and was targeted six times. He is expected to have a big role while Clay is out with a knee injury.'

Marker 7 Buffalo Bills questions for the bye: 1) Can the Bills get LeSean McCoy going again? [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Some have wondered if it’s his age finally catching up to him. To borrow a tried and true phrase from Rubeus Hagrid, that’s a load of hogwash. Codswallop, if you will.'

Marker 7 Buffalo Bills questions for the bye: 2) Can Tyrod Taylor lead the Bills to the playoffs in 2017? [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Fans have seen the same things week in, and week out from Taylor without much semblance of improvement from where he was in 2015, and definitely not a lot from 2016, either. Taylor has been a constant — a what-you-see-is-what-you-get type of quarterback that can get the ball where you need it to go when he has the players around him to make some plays and to not turn the ball over, either.'

Marker 7 Buffalo Bills questions for the bye: 3) Can the offensive line improve in 2017? [1:52 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Left tackle Dion Dawkins has been up and down — as expected — in his rookie season, right guard John Miller proved to be an untrustworthy option at right guard, Jordan Mills has continued to struggle at right tackle, and even Richie Incognito, while still solid, has played below the form we’ve come to expect from him over the last two seasons.'

Marker Seeking solutions in the run game [1:51 AM] reports: '“We’ve got to look at everything,” said McDermott. “It’s never just one thing. It’s never just the offensive line. It’s never just the tight ends, the wide receivers and the eight-man box. It’s all of that. It’s everything that we can do better.”'

Marker Bills Today: Milano makes the most of his first NFL start [1:50 AM] reports: '“I thought he did a good job,” McDermott said. “The first thing we look at is really the look in his eye and we talked about that. I’ve talked about that with coach [Bob" target="_blank"> Babich, our linebackers coach, and he said he had the right look in his eye on the boundary and I thought he handled himself well. It wasn’t too big for him and now, knowing Matt, he’ll continue to improve. He puts a lot of time into his job and again, another young guy that was out there on the field and did a good job at times for us.”'

Marker Mystique of the NFL bye week looms larger than its impact on wins, losses [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"When you have that bye week, it is a good chance to rest the players and get them refreshed," Levy said. "The players have been going for quite a while now, starting with training camp and the offseason work. The bye week should be a plus to allow you to refresh, to give you more time to prepare and to heal from some bang-ups that guys have."'

Marker A close examination of the Bills' run game after Week Five [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'First things first, offensive coordinator Rick Dennison deserves credit for putting his ego aside and not strictly utilizing his patented zone-blocking run plays. He's featured many of the same plays that were extremely effective for the Bills over the past two seasons, which are categorically different from the run-game philosophy he was brought up in as a coach in the NFL under Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak.'

Marker Thurman Thomas takes to Facebook to 'send a clear message' [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Anyone that knows me knows that I love my country, I have great admiration for our men and women in the military. I have traveled to Iraq as part of a USO tour to show my love and support for these brave men and women. I have been an honored and humbled guest on an F16 flight that landed on a Aircraft carrier in the Gulf of Mexico and was completely awed by the service men and women who operate these incredible machines. I was lucky enough to have visited Veterans hospitals and meet more true American hero’s. I have beloved friends and family members that have served or are serving in the military.'

Marker Dareus Review: Nondescript game vs. Falcons still earns Bills defensive tackle positive grades [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Thus far on the season, the former first-round pick is PFF's fourth-highest graded Bills defender. Playing in much more of a space-eating role than he did in Jim Schwartz's 4-3 defense in 2014, Dareus only has three quarterback pressures (one sack, two hurries) on 53 pass-rushing snaps.'

Marker Buffalo Bills are playoff pretenders in 2017 (What Bills fans are saying) [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Pretender. No offense, no run game, no pass game. Last years offense we go 12-4.'
