Marker Adding Boldin would add veteran presence to Bills [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If you want to add a veteran, let’s talk about receiver Anquan Boldin. He’ll be 36 in October. He’s probably waiting for what he feels is the ideal situation.

Marker 3 big questions surrounding tight ends [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'At this point, it's fair to wonder if the stat line Clay posted in 2015 is the indication of the type of player he is. He's an above-average blocker for the tight end position and a capable receiver who will never post 1,000 yards in a season or double-digit touchdowns. To be fair, Clay isn't featured in this offense the way other tight ends are in the NFL. He plays in a run-first offense and competes with Sammy Watkins for targets. Meanwhile, quarterback Tyrod Taylor didn't attack the middle of the field too often in his first year under center.'

Marker Bills' Watkins unsure when he'll return to field [1:49 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I don't know how much I'm gonna be doing or when I'm gonna be on the field, but I'm definitely going to be active and engaged," Watkins said at his football camp Tuesday, via ESPN. "I don't know what the schedule is like with me being on the field competing-wise, but I'm right where I need to be at - feeling good, healthy. Nothing is bothering me. Just really prepare for whatever they do.'

Marker Why Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan deserves to be on the hot seat in 2016 [1:47 AM]
Fox Sports reports: 'Ryan came to Buffalo promising to bring the franchise back to the playoffs. His sample size with the Bills is small, but his track record of late hasn't been great, even outside Buffalo. He hasn't made the playoffs since 2010 with the Jets and has zero winning seasons in the last five seasons. And as a head coach, he's never won a division title. Not once.'

Marker Sammy: 'Right where I need to be,' but WR still unsure of when he'll return [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Speaking at his annual football camp, Watkins said that even though he doesn't know how much actual on-field work he will do during training camp, he is “feeling great” and “right where I need to be." '

Marker With Bills RB situation in flux, Wilder says he "has to take advantage" [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I am aware of the position that I’m in now,” he said. “It gives me a shot to be able show a little more, maybe in preseason. Gives me that extra boost to make that 53 (man roster). It’s just a good opportunity for me. We’re not fortunate to lose both guys. It’s a bad thing. But it’s an opportunity for me and something I have to take advantage of.”'

Marker PFF's Moy: 'Bills have truly found someone special' in Taylor [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Tyrod alone is enough to make me very optimistic about the season,” Moy said.'

Marker Which undrafted Bills rookies might stick? [1:43 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills make offer to RB Reggie Bush, according to reports [1:57 AM]

Marker What is the NFL thinking? [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Congratulations NFL! You go on ahead and do your research about field goals while your fan base and coaches/players have no idea what a catch is anymore. That certainly isn’t a problem. Pass interference calls are so subjective, we should develop a book on officials to see which ones tend to let players battle and which ones are more likely to throw the flag. The interpretation of intentional grounding seems to be different from one referee to the next.'

Marker Report: Bills targeting RB Reggie Bush [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The 31-year old Bush played only 16 games over the past two seasons with the Lions and 49ers (only five last year in San Francisco) due to various injuries. The former 2nd-overall pick out of USC has over 9000 yards from scrimmage and 55 touchdowns in his ten year career.'

WKBW-TV reports: 'Bush, 31, suffered a torn ACL in November of last season and has not signed with any team at this point in the offseason. Rapoport added that Bush is weighing options, and is in "no rush" to make a decision.'

Marker How much can we expect from Bills QB Cardale Jones? [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'His plight will be all about knowing and understanding the NFL offense, deciphering NFL defenses, taking on the mechanical work that quarterbacks coach David Lee will put him through, and learning how to be a professional quarterback. With all of that needed in just a small time frame, the odds are against Jones making an impact enough to be the backup quarterback this year.'

Marker Buffalo Bills make offer to free-agent RB Reggie Bush [1:52 AM] reports: 'The Bills put out an offer to Bush, but the running back is weighing his options and is in no rush to make decision, added Rapoport.'

Marker 10 things to know about camp at St. John Fisher [1:51 AM] reports: 'If you’re looking for a fun getaway this summer, Bills Training Camp is the place to be!

Marker 3 reasons the offense will be better in the red zone [1:50 AM] reports: '“It really comes to how physical can we play,” said receivers coach Sanjay Lal. “In the red zone, there’s going to be grabbing, there’s going to be guys hooking people, so now if we’re strong and big and physical and nasty, how do we fight through it? That’s encouraging that you actually have the physical skill set to do it. It’s nice as a coach to have those tools.”'

Marker Get to know the Bills' opponents: Offseason review of the New England Patriots [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Can unproven backup Jimmy Garoppolo steer the ship the first month of the season while Brady is out? The opener on the road against Arizona will be tough, but after that New England has three home games against AFC opponents. If they can go 2-1 in those, once Brady returns things should be back to normal – with New England dominating the division.'

Marker Watch Marcell Dareus correct TV interviewer about NASCAR's Chase Elliott [1:58 AM]

Marker Like Redskins with Cousins, Bills can wait on Tyrod extension [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The other difference - and probably more important one - is that because Taylor was not yet a free agent, and not (yet) on the franchise tag, the Bills can sign him at any time - today, tomorrow, week six, immediately after the season, whenever - to an extension. They actually DO have the ability to see if Taylor can prove last year wasn’t a fluke. And that’s exactly what they intend to do.'

Marker Will Jerry Hughes make the Pro Bowl? [1:56 AM] reports: '“I’ll be standing up more so just understanding the depths and volumes that it goes into playing a linebacker,” said Hughes “It opens up the game for you a lot. You can have a lot more fun I’ll say when you’re out in coverage, when you’re out coming off the edge, really just playing with that look to kind of just mess with the offensive players’ heads.”'
