Marker Bills stick with cautious approach to Sammy Watkins in training camp [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We've put together … a rep count that will build up and, at times, come down a little bit, just based off of the plan from the outset," McDermott said. "But we've got to be flexible with that and see how he feels. And that starts" Thursday "night."'

Marker Bills will go with three QBs in camp, haven't considered Colin Kaepernick, GM Beane says [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Obviously Colin, he's had great success in the past," Beane said. "I've not looked into him or anything like that. We've had plenty of quarterbacks here. I like the mesh of the three that we have. We liked Cardale, but our our goal right now is just to let these three go and see how it goes at camp."'

Marker Bills OT Cordy Glenn 'on schedule' in recovery from ankle injury [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'However, the Bills are going to be careful with Glenn and, as they are doing with receiver Sammy Watkins and his recovery from foot surgery, they are going to "manage his reps," coach Sean McDermott said.'

Marker Adolphus Washington addresses media for first time since arrest [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"When we got here Tuesday or Wednesday, just to be back around the guys, it took my mind off of it," Washington said. " ... I forget about it. I try not to think about it. I'm trying to focus on my team and trying to help us move in the right direction this year for the football season."'

Marker McDermott, Beane disappointed in Washington after recent arrest [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We just wanted to hear his version," Beane said. "He had called us ... he handled the situation after it happened the way he should, as far as calling us immediately and letting us know. But we have not spoken to him since then and we sat down, the three of us. I'm gonna keep it private what we said, but he understands that we're disappointed the situation happened. At the same time we're thankful no one was injured. It could've been worse. He understands and we're gonna move forward."'

Marker Bucky Gleason: As training camp opens, message from Bills' brass has familiar ring [1:54 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Pardon me if I'm reluctant to believe the Bills will be decidedly different this year under McDermott and Beane than they were in past seasons. It has absolutely nothing to do with them. They're fine people and appear more competent, more professional, than their predecessors. I'm not questioning their sincerity.'

Marker What we learned at Bills camp: Day One [1:53 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Just one player -- safety Colt Anderson -- is on the active/physically-unable-to-perform list. Coach Sean McDermott said Anderson, who worked out with trainers on the sideline, is week-to-week with a sprained foot. The other 88 players on the roster took part in practice. Offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson left with a trainer, but returned about 10 minutes later, while defensive tackle Jerel Worthy left the practice a few minutes early, possibly for a cramp.'

Marker What They Said: Bills coach Sean McDermott & GM Brandon Beane at Bills camp, plus Taylor, Washin [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'My expectations haven’t changed. My expectations are that we’re going to work hard, we’re going to compete. We’ve got a lot of work to do obviously to your point. We’re putting together a roster –Brandon (Beane) and his staff – that’s going to compete, there’s going to be competition at every position and we look forward to it. That’s what training camp is all about. That brings out the best in true competitors. Those are my expectations. We’re going to focus on the process and that’s focusing on us and that’s what we have to do right now, that’s what’s in front of us.'

Marker Jay Skurski's start-of-training camp 53-man roster projection [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The top three of Watkins, Jones and Holmes have separated themselves from the rest, leaving eight players (not counting Powell) competing for five spots.'

Marker Vic Carucci's 3 Bills thoughts: Jones' departure inevitable, Peterman's promise & [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It made sense that the Chargers were the one (only?) team willing to make a deal for him, because their new coach, Anthony Lynn, was the Bills' offensive coordinator and interim coach during Jones' rookie year in 2016. Lynn saw what everyone else saw from Jones: big arm, but rawness everywhere else.'

Marker Buffalo Bills depth chart doesn't include much depth [1:49 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But one thing we know the two men have in common: A Buffalo roster with a whole lot more questions than answers, and as maddening as it is, several of the concerns Ryan dealt with last season are now McDermott’s problem as the Bills arrive at St. John Fisher College for their 18th training camp on the Pittsford campus.'

Marker Bills GM Beane likes his QBs but may wind up liking those 2 first-round picks better [1:48 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“With not having traditional two-a-days like we had, when you needed four and five quarterbacks, there’s just not enough time to have four and give them all the reps they need," Beane explained. “We would’ve been doing Cardale a disservice, so we found a win-win situation.".

Marker From Flutie to T.O. to Rex Ryan, Bills have had some memorable camps [1:47 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It has often been said that no one sells hope better than the Buffalo Bills. It's true, and Rochesterians lap it up when the team comes to our town. But sometimes hope is accompanied by genuine and well-placed excitement, and that's the case this year, because the buffoonery of Rex Ryan has been replaced by the hard-boiled, no-nonsense discipline of Sean McDermott.'

Marker Where to eat (and drink) near Bills training camp [1:46 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Village Bakery and Café: Tucked back behind a Starbuck's in the Village of Pittsford, this locally owned gem serves up hearty breakfast fare like open-faced egg sandwiches and stuffed French toast. It also has delicious pastries for breakfast on the run. At lunchtime, there are soups, sandwiches and salads. At 5 State Street, the Village Bakery and Cafe is open 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Marker Sammy Watkins healthy and ready as Buffalo Bills open training camp [1:45 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I feel great going out there competing and having fun, getting back in the work space, getting used to being out there with the team,” said Watkins, who has not spoken to the media since the end of the 2016 regular season. “I’m just going out, whatever they want, I’m going to do. They’ve got a plan and I’m following it.”'

Marker Adolphus Washington incident 'disappointed' Buffalo Bills' Sean McDermott, Brandon Be [1:45 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"In terms of Adolphus, right from the start has been great in terms of communication from the time that incident unfolded with us. Brandon and I both met with Adolphus and we wanted to know the full story. That's the key. Every situation is a little bit different. That said, this is obviously, as everyone knows, an open legal matter so I'm not going to go in any more detail at this time. I can't do that. I was disappointed."'

Marker Sean McDermott, Brandon Beane provide update on Anquan Boldin's visit with Buffalo Bills [1:44 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It was a good visit. We're going through that process. Those decisions normally take time on both ends so we're going through the process and we'll just see how it plays out."'

Marker Don't expect Buffalo Bills to sign free-agent QB Colin Kaepernick [1:43 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Obviously Colin, he's had great success in the past," Bills general manager Brandon Beane said. "I've not looked into him or anything like that. We've had plenty of quarterbacks here. I like the mesh of the three that we have. We liked Cardale, but our our goal right now is just to let these three go and see how it goes at camp.'

Marker How trading Cardale Jones was a sign of Buffalo Bills' confidence in Nathan Peterman [1:42 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I think it's a win-win, and that's what you want in a trade," Beane said at training camp Thursday. "A: Anthony Lynn's out there. He knows Cardale. He has a familiarity. I think that started this. They're watching what we're doing. Cardale's the fourth as we left on vacation. With not having two-a-days, traditional two-a-days like we had. Back then you needed four, maybe five quarterback. There's not enough reps really to have four and give them all the reps they need. I think we would have been doing Cardale a disservice, so we found a win-win situation. He's a great young man and I wish him the best of luck out there."'

Marker Sean McDermott, Brandon Beane provide update on Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins [1:41 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"We've put together between Shone (Gipson) and our training staff and the coaching staff, a rep count that will build up and at times come down a little bit just based off of the plan from the outset," McDermott said. "But we have to be flexible with that and see how he feels. That starts tonight."'

Marker Buffalo Bills training camp 2017: Overplayed and under the radar storylines to watch [1:39 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'There will be plenty of time to discuss whether Taylor is or isn't worthy of being the team's future at quarterback. His play in the regular season will dictate that conversation, and whether the front office decides to open up the check book will determine the answer to this question.'

Marker Cardale Jones reportedly cried tears of joy when Buffalo Bills traded him [1:38 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'This shouldn't be viewed as Jones slighting the Bills. In fact, he tweeted out a message of gratitude toward Bills fans after he was traded.'

Marker Rex Ryan: If you're against Donald Trump, you're against our country [1:37 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I have absolutely no regrets for doing the Trump rally," he said. "I was asked to do that by somebody that I know. I am proud to be an acquaintance of Donald Trump. I felt honored he asked me to speak. I'm not a politician I don't know politics that well. Just because I support Donald Trump doesn't mean I support 100 percent everything he has ever done. I'm proud I know Donald Trump and I support him. And by the way, he happens to be our President. And I think anybody who is against him now is against our country. Without question, I'm proud to be a proud supporter of Donald Trump."'

Marker Rex Ryan thinks Buffalo Bills will 'surprise a ton of people' under Sean McDermott [1:36 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I think any coach would be," Rex said. "I've never had that situation, but most coaches don't have that. He has a great owner. Terry is so passionate about his teams. I felt bad that I let him down, never got it done the way I wanted to. But he is a great man. He treated me well. The answer was 'yes' to many things that I asked for. Not all thing, but many things that I asked for.'

Marker Buffalo Bills training camp day 1: Sammy Watkins takes center stage (10 observations) [1:35 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'For the most part, it was a typical practice for Sammy Watkins. The fourth-year wide receiver caught three passes during team drills, included a contested ball, and otherwise showed the same burst and physicality that have made him a dominant receiver at times. After having a second foot surgery this offseason, however, seeing Watkins on the field looking like himself was noteworthy. It's tough to say the last time he's looked that comfortable.'

Marker What Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins had to say about his foot injury, contract [1:34 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I love Buffalo, they drafted me first round, fourth pick. You don't want to change teams. My job is to stay around here forever, and that's the goal."'

Marker 5 observations from the opening day of Bills training camp on Thursday [1:32 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'The Bills brought in wide receiver Anquan Bolding for a pre-camp visit on Monday but left Buffalo without signing a contact. The Bills brass of head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane were asked for the update. McDermott said the process takes time on "both ends" while Beane only commented it was a nice visit. Boldin is seemingly only mulling over an offer from Buffalo, so the situation seems like the 36-year-old is deciding between Buffalo and retirement.'

Marker Sammy Watkins breaks silence on first day of training camp [1:31 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '"Of course he’s an explosive playmaker, one of the best in this league, and having us on the same page definitely brings a lot of positive to our offense," Taylor said. "He’s fired up. I spent some time with him over the summer; physically, mentally he’s ready to go, so I’m excited to see what type of year he’s going to have."'

Marker Ex-Bills Gilmore, Gillislee figure to play prominent roles for rival Patriots [1:30 AM]
