Buffalo Bills News - July 19, 2017

Marker Stephon Gilmore's jab irks Bills fans, elicits TV response [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'On its own, Andy's tweet would be a decent response. But Ch. 2 sports anchor Jonah Javad went the extra mile. For the 6 p.m. newscast, he compiled a lowlight reel of Gilmore's time in Buffalo, showing everybody what they missed with the Bills not being on TV.'

Marker Richie Incognito explains why Buffalo Bills weren't ready for Rex Ryan [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"The culture change was needed," Incognito said. "I love Rex, I love what he brought to the team, but I don't think our locker room was ready for it. I don't think we had a veteran enough group to be able to adapt to Rex's system and to be able to make that work. So now we have a young and hungry team, and with coach [Sean] McDermott coming in and being detail-oriented and holding guys accountable, hopefully that helps us take the next step."'

Marker Buffalo Bills named a potential suitor for Washington QB Kirk Cousins by ESPN [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It would be tough economically, but not crippling, for the Bills to move on from Tyrod Taylor after this season," said Graziano. "Doing so would increase Buffalo's 2018 cap space to around $43 million, and the Bills would obviously need to look at free-agent quarterbacks. This is a wild card, but Taylor is, too."'

Marker Sal's camp countdown: Backup QB role appears up for grabs [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Yates has been the No. 2 QB throughout OTAs and and minicamp. I expect him to get second-team reps to start training camp, too. From there, he’ll have to keep the job. My sense is McDermott wants a veteran behind Taylor to steer the ship if he were to go down at all. Although the 30-year old Yates has only started nine games throughout his seven NFL seasons, he has started - and won - a playoff game. That holds some clout with the coaching staff and in the QB room. He'll get pushed for the backup role, but when it's all said and done, I think he keeps it at least for most of the season, if not all of it.'

Marker Ex-Bills CB Stephon Gilmore takes shot at Bills [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Patriots are among the teams that typically among the squads that are featured. The Bills, in recent years, have not been so lucky.'

Marker 10 - Who will be the nickel cornerback? [1:52 AM] reports: 'If Darby and White prove to be the starters outside, it’s highly likely that Bills CB Kevon Seymour will garner heavy consideration for the nickel position. Seymour was the Bills sixth-round pick in the 2016 NFL draft and he carved out a role for himself last season. Throughout his rookie season, the cornerback played in 15 games while making 22 tackles and also had three pass deflections.'

Marker Training camp countdown: Who starts at middle linebacker – Preston Brown or Reggie Ragland? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I know Reggie from tape in college and what he can do," McDermott said at the NFL owners meetings. "And what innately comes with that position is the leadership skills. He possesses those leadership skills to get us lined up, be the antennae, so to speak, of the defense.'

Marker Months after losing assistant GM Brandon Beane to Bills, Panthers fire GM Dave Gettleman [1:58 AM]

Marker Fashion Police: Bills QB Tyrod Taylor honored in Sports Illustrated's 2017 'Fashionable 50 [1:57 AM]

Taylor is expected to attend SI's Fashionable 50 event in Los Angeles on Tuesday. The issue will be available on newsstands Thursday.'

Marker Did losing Brandon Beane to Buffalo Bills play role in Panthers firing Dave Gettleman? [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'When Brandon Beane left for Buffalo, Gettleman lost a key member of his team who had performed many day-to-day functions of a GM, a role that allowed Gettleman to focus on roster building. In many ways, the fallout appeared similar to some of the stories that came out of Kansas City after the Chiefs parted with GM John Dorsey.'

Marker ESPN writer predicts Buffalo Bills' playoff drought to end in near future [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Maybe even this season. Buffalo is stronger on the lines than people give them credit for. Tyrod Taylor is better than you think he is. Sixteen games' worth of good health from Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy might be too much to ask, but if it's not, this is a wild-card contender under hungry and energetic first-year coach Sean McDermott.'

Marker New England Patriots CB Stephon Gilmore takes subtle shot at Buffalo Bills [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'During his time in Buffalo, Gilmore and the Bills were rarely featured in primetime games, so the cornerback has every right to be happy knowing his friends and family will get to watch him often in 2017. That said, Gilmore's tweet left a bad taste in the mouth of Bills fans based on the responses he received.'

Marker 12 - Will Jerry Hughes make the Pro Bowl? [1:59 AM] reports: '“In order to be successful in this league you need to rely on pressuring the quarterback with your front four. Bringing six or seven really exposes your secondary and makes it tough no matter who you have on the back end.” Frazier said. “So if we can get Jerry (Hughes) playing at the level we think he’s capable of playing and Kyle and Marcell and Shaq Lawson comes along, that could be a formidable front four. We think those guys are more than capable.”'

Marker USA Today's positional rankings not kind to Bills' defense, special teams [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Linebackers: "24. Buffalo Bills: They're switching schemes (again), with new coach Sean McDermott a 4-3 proponent. Lorenzo Alexander had a breakout 2016, but how will he adapt after thriving on the edge? Reggie Ragland is an unknown after a knee injury ruined his rookie year."'

Marker Jay Skurski's Bills Mailbag: Is Marcell Dareus buying in? Will Sammy Watkins be back? Just who [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And really, how much does it even matter what he says?

The truth is, Dareus is firmly in "don't tell us, show us" territory.'
