Marker Bills season ticket sales the perfect storm [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'You could sell oceanfront property in Arizona to a Bills fan.'

Marker Will LeSean McCoy live up to the hype for the Buffalo Bills? [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'It's tough to see the Bills keeping more than four running backs on the 53-man roster, despite how much they say they want to run the football. McCoy is going to take the bulk of the carries, and there won't be much need for a fifth running back. It's early to say Seantrel Henderson is on the outs with the new coaching staff, but he's certainly not off to a good start during minicamp. As for the nickel cornerback job, Nickell Robey pretty much has that locked down. The coaches like Darby as an outside cornerback.'

Marker 7 lingering questions for Buffalo Bills after minicamp [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills' offensive coaches have all said the quarterback competition will truly begin when the pads come on. EJ Manuel finished minicamp on a high note, but Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor are still very much in the mix for the job. The clock will start ticking on naming a starting quarterback when the team reports to St. John Fisher, and the Bills hope to find more answers in the coming months.'

Marker Rex wants players to 'detox from football' during break [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I am getting away from it, as well. I think it's good to get away with all the coaches and things. But you know things are never that far away from you. But I want to get away and I want everyone to get away. Then when you come back you are fresh as a daisy and you are ready to roll. The grind, you plan on working six months and maybe having two days off. Now you get away, all the coaches everyone in the building gets away. I think that’s a good thing.”'

Marker Bills Positional Briefs: Tight Ends [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Look out for MarQueis Gray. The former college quarterback has made a full-on transition to tight end, and a successful one at that. The Bills have really been impressed with Gray since he stepped foot into One Bills Drive in the middle of the 2014 season. He quickly rose up the depth chart last season, and in a short amount of time, to actually get reps on offense -- and he even made an impact on the passing game. Gray has an impressive amount of athleticism to go along with a big frame (6-foot-4, 242-pounds), and is developing as a blocker. Although still technically on the bubble, he has a fantastic shot to make the 53-man roster outright.'

Marker Bills announce changes in player personnel department [1:53 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Rob Hanrahan has been promoted to Director of Pro Personnel. Hanrahan is entering his 15th season with the Bills after serving as the team’s assistant director of pro personnel in 2014 and pro personnel coordinator from 2008-13. From 2004 – 2007, Hanrahan served as a pro personnel assistant after two years as the team’s scouting assistant from 2002 – 2003. He first joined the Bills as an intern in the media relations department in 2001.'

Marker 4 players whose stock is on the rise this offseason [1:52 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '““I’ve felt a huge improvement in my balance,” Kouandjio noted when the minicamp ended. “Being able to do what you want at a certain speed it takes a lot of balance, which requires a lot of core strength. It helps your game a lot. There are a lot of little things that I see in my game that I can fix. I still have a few things I can pinpoint that I need to work on during the break. It’s a process.”'

Marker Ryan gives Bills’ offense a chance to break on high note [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You have to get a couple new systems taught,” Ryan said. “You have to see what you have from a physical standpoint as best you can without putting the pads on, enthusiasm and all that type of stuff. And, obviously,” there’s “the physical conditioning of your players. I have been happy with all of it.”'

Marker Kouandjio makes offseason strides [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Coach Rex Ryan said Thursday the performance of the 2014 second-round draft pick from Alabama during offseason drills “probably puts him ahead” of Seantrel Henderson at offensive tackle. Kouandjio has worked at right tackle, where Henderson started for all 16 games as a rookie last season, during the three-day mandatory minicamp that ended Thursday while Henderson worked as a backup.'

Marker Bills mini-camp ends, QB dilemma rages on [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'None of the three quarterbacks in the running to be the starter, EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, or Tyrod Taylor, looked impressive whenever they had to go against the Buffalo defense in 11-on-11 drills. And that's with no threat of them being sacked. For that matter, they often struggled throwing against air, which means, when there were no defenders to go against.'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan explains why Cyrus Kouandjio is ahead of Seantrel Henderson [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I think he's making a lot of progress. That's the number one thing. Guy is coming in every day, showing up number one, showing up on time, working hard and showing improvement, and that's what he's done," Bills offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Wednesday.'

Marker Rex Ryan expects Buffalo Bills to sign former Jets OT Wayne Hunter [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Yeah, I think he'll be signed," Ryan said Thursday. "We're just putting him through the individual drills. We weren't putting him out there for any team drills. Just so he gets his feet wet and picks up some terminology and things like that. Where he will have a better chance is when we get back out there in training camp. It is good for a veteran player just to get out. I think he has impressed some coaches with how athletic he is. And he looks like he is in great shape. It will be fun watching him compete."'

Marker EJ Manuel lights up the backup defense, and 5 other observations from Buffalo Bills' minicamp [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'In the battle between second-year offensive tackles, Cyrus Kouandjio is ahead of Seantrel Henderson, who missed practice Tuesday because of a travel issue. Kouandjio again took all of the first-team reps at offensive tackle, and Ryan said it's because of the offseason work he put in. Henderson was not made available to the media for the second-straight day.'

Marker Rex Ryan holds Buffalo Bills defensive line out of minicamp practice to help quarterbacks [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"No, I wouldn't say that," Ryan said. "You guys posted every stat known to man in there, and I thought, 'That's enough. Big boys ain't in there today.' It's a little easier to function when that front four ain't in there, so we did that a little bit. When you combine talent with scheme, it's going to be pretty spectacular on the other side, I believe."'

Marker How soon does Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan need to name a starting quarterback? [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'That competition can complicate things for an offense. When three quarterbacks are dividing the reps with the first team offense, it's tough for any of them to establish rhythm during practice, building chemistry becomes a challenge and even evaluating their play is difficult.'

Marker EJ Manuel builds on adversity of 2014 [1:51 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '“You just have to practice it. I think it’s just making things muscle memory. Once you make it muscle memory, then you can just go out and do it, like in a two-minute drill. You have to think about what the defence is doing. You can’t think about your fundamentals. So once it becomes second nature, I think you start to play better.”'

Marker Famed Bills receiver Reed joins team as coaching intern [1:50 AM]
AP reports: '"I have a lot to give back to the game," Reed said. "I had a feeling I wanted to do something after I was done playing, even before that but my kids were too small and I think as they're older now I can devote more time to it if I want to."'

Marker Bills afflicted with high expectations [1:49 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"There's not going to be any separation until the pads come on," Ryan said of the three-man competition. "It's not going to be one until we get to playing real football. The No. 1 thing is to pick the right guy. Is time on our side a little bit? Yes, it is. In an ideal world would you already have your quarterback named by now? Yeah, that's an ideal situation, but you know what, we're not there, we're in an ideal situation to have competition at that spot and I welcome it."'

Marker Bills sign TE Mulligan, release DB Noel [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Noel was an undrafted free agent the Bills signed out of Wake Forest.'

Marker Manuel impressive on final day; offense works play-action [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Today in 2-minute offense, the former first-round pick made two impressive deeper throws that were complete. One was almost a carbon-copy of the one he threw yesterday to Gray. This time it was to Marcus Easley, and it went for a TD. That touchdown was the finishing touch to a 65-yard drive.'

Marker Bills Minicamp Observations, Day 3 [1:46 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'It couldn't have gotten any worse for the Bills on offense on Wednesday, but on the same hand, they couldn't have asked for a step forward any better than the one they got from EJ Manuel on Thursday.'

Marker TE Matthew Mulligan signed by Bills [1:45 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Mulligan, 30, like a good number of the free agents signed by Buffalo this offseason has a history with Bills head coach Rex Ryan. The tight end began his career with the New York Jets under Ryan in 2009 and played three seasons in New York.'

Marker Minicamp Notes: Day 3 [1:44 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Manuel put together one of his better practices Thursday and has improved in a couple of specific areas with respect to his personal game. He’s much less hesitant in his decision making and his accuracy is more consistent. Perhaps the area of his game that has seen the greatest jump is his footwork in the pocket and leading up to the throw.'

Marker Cyrus Kouandjio confident 2015 will bring marked progress [1:43 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“I think the work that Cyrus has done overall in the offseason probably puts him ahead right now,” said head coach Rex Ryan. “But again, the race isn’t over by a long shot, so we’ll see.”'

Marker Bills’ Incognito says he’s matured in time off [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You know, it’s six one way, half dozen the other,” he said. “I’ve definitely grown, definitely matured. I definitely did take some steps forward. But, you know, I think what this whole thing was, it really just shook me down to my core values, and really just kind of” made me think about “the kind of man I am.”'

Marker Bills quarterbacks have rough day in minicamp [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“A few drops here, a few protection issues,” offensive coordinator Greg Roman said when asked why the offense struggled so much to throw the ball. “There were some good plays, some bad plays. Very similar to yesterday. We didn’t throw the ball downfield that much today as we did yesterday, though.”'

Marker Chris Hogan ready to battle for Bills roster spot [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I see myself fitting in the same kind of role I had last year," said Hogan, who enjoyed a breakout 2014 when he was Buffalo's third receiver and caught 41 passes for 426 yards and 4 touchdowns. "I'm a guy that can play inside or outside. It's really going to come down to who does what the best and that's what we're trying to get to in these OTAs and mini-camps. For me, I'm going to try to do everything good and hopefully that carries into training camp and from there, I hope I can find my way onto the field."'

Marker Is Buffalo Bills guard Richie Incognito a changed man? [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Do I feel like I'm changed?" Incognito asked Wednesday at the Bills' mandatory minicamp. "You know, it's six one way, half dozen the other. I've definitely grown, definitely matured. I definitely did take some steps forward. But you know I think what this whole thing was, it really just shook me down to my core values, and really just kind of (made me think about) the kind of man I am."'

Marker Offense hits rock bottom and 5 other observations from Buffalo Bills minicamp [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'While some of that can be chalked up to solid defensive play, it's not ideal for the offense to take that kind of step back, particularly after a day when they showed some progress. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman isn't ready to judge the team until training camp. Still, it's obvious a break could do them some good.'

Marker Seantrel Henderson back but demoted [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Coach Rex Ryan didn't meet with the media Wednesday, and offensive coordinator Greg Roman didn't provide much of an explanation other than to say Henderson was a day behind after missing practice Tuesday because of a travel issues. The Bills did not make Henderson available to the media.'
