Marker Expectations for Bills, already low for 2017, not much brighter the next two years, ESPN says [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Here is how Yates explained the team's positioning: "The Bills' organizational structure underwent arguably the most extreme overhaul of any in the NFL this past offseason, with GM Brandon Beane and coach Sean McDermott now in charge. Whether or not Tyrod Taylor is the quarterback beyond 2017, a primary task of the Bills' front-office duo is to upgrade at wide receiver. Sammy Watkins has just one year left on his rookie contract, and health issues have plagued his career thus far."'

"We don't want to complicate things for our players at all and what we're trying to get accomplished. We want our players to be able to play fast and they have adapted very well to the 4-3 and also some of the terminology that we've introduced them to is all things you're familiar with Bill and things we had success with in Indy.

Marker Why you should root for the Buffalo Bills [1:49 AM] reports: 'McDermott definitely has some work to do.

Marker 16 - Who are the training camp sleepers? [1:48 AM] reports: 'There is a different kind of opportunity on Buffalo’s roster this season.

Marker Buffalo Bills' linebackers and secondary ranked among league's worst by USA Today [1:57 AM]

Marker 17 - Who will start at outside linebacker? [1:56 AM] reports: 'Alexander was one of the starting linebackers during minicamp.
