Marker Bills QBs get equal air time [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You just keep rotating your guys like that,” Ryan said. “So they’re all going to get to work with each other. It’s not that big a deal right now. But the big thing is you want to evaluate all your players, not just the first team or second team. You want everybody and give guys fair chances and a lot of times, the cream will rise to the top and you’ll see something.'

Marker OTAs focus on running as many plays as possible [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You’ve got some of your players on one area and some on the other, and it’s just boom, boom, boom,” Ryan said. “I tell my assistants, ‘Just coach off the tape.’ And you really get a lot more reps in that way. Usually, the third group may get seven snaps.” On Tuesday, “they got 30.”'

Marker Betting lines for the Buffalo Bills' 2015 regular season games [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'As of now, the Bills are favored in nine out of the 15 games for which odds have been set. They're still underdogs to the Patriots twice and the Dolphins once, so oddsmakers don't like Buffalo's chances of changing the guard in the AFC East.'

Marker 5 things to watch for during Buffalo Bills OTAs [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'There's no doubt everyone will be dissecting every throw Matt Cassel, EJ Manuel and Tyrod Taylor make from now until a starter is named. Each quarterback has questions to answer. How will Cassel look coming off his injury? Has Manuel really improved his accuracy and mechanics? Is Taylor ready to compete for a starting job? These practices may not shed much light on those questions, but offensive coordinator Greg Roman said last week that he thinks a leader may emerge heading into training camp.'

Marker Can Lewis be tall WR Bills have been searching for? [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I’m pretty sure I’ll be on a lot of special teams. That’s the main thing with rookies. You’re not going to come in automatically starting unless you’re ’that guy.’ I’m definitely willing to play special teams. I’m playing gunner and kickoff right now. We’ll see what happens when preseason comes.”'

Marker Bills begin OTAs today [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills will be on the field today, tomorrow, and Friday, with a voluntary offseason conditioning day on Thursday. The remaining seven days they are allowed to have OTAs will take place over the following two weeks. Here is the full schedule of Bills OTA dates..'.

Marker 'I needed the Lord in my life' [1:53 AM]
Catholic Online reports: '"Bottom line is, we all get thrown to our knees and I was a few times over, but I understand that I am here for a reason. I am a chosen father with a little boy named Hunter that through all of our experiences, we've been able to make a difference," he said. With the loss of Hunter to Krabbe Disease, Kelly explained that both he and Jill were lost, not knowing what to do, until God became the center of their life enriching it with faith.'

Marker Bills 'doubling down' on OTAs [1:52 AM] reports: '“As we know, it’s a three man competition, they all need work,” Ryan said on the radio show. “It’s not a true competition if you’re not going to give them work. I liked that today. And I can understand the drill. I’ll be excited to watch the video, too, because now you get twice as many snaps.”'

Marker Carrington begins anew with Bills [1:51 AM] reports: '“I knew there would be a phone call after the draft, after teams filled up rosters,” said Carrington. “I thought the Bills were a distinct possibility because of the defense and a lot of similar type players here. They were at the top of my list. I was like, ‘I’m going back to Buffalo.’”'

Marker Why Tyrod Taylor can actually win Bills' starting quarterback job [1:59 AM]
CBS Sports reports: 'It's important to recognize, however, that all this Taylor talk probably isn't just a way to motivate Manuel and to accelerate his progress. Don't simply dismiss it when the Bills say Taylor was brought there to compete for the starting job, because no matter how unlikely it sounds on May 24, we could be living in a world where Taylor is starting opposite Andrew Luck on September 13.'

Marker Thoughts on Alfred, Dareus and the Sabres coaching search [5:05 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'With all the complaining from Patriots fans about the severity of their team's penalties in Deflategate, the Bills got a break from the league office in the suspension of nose tackle Marcell Dareus.'

Marker Mario Williams preparing for another adjustment [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We all understand that part of the game,” he said recently. “Things change, personnel change, obviously coaches change. We pretty much just take from what we learned from” Schwartz “and kind of keep it going. I mean, that’s the only way you can do it in this league, because it’s pretty much a revolving door.”'

Marker PAT changes will set new strategies afoot [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Let’s say you’re in Buffalo and there’s a blizzard going on,” Oakland Raiders special teams coach Brad Seely told SiriusXM NFL Radio. “That’s going to maybe change your thinking. The other part of that is, you still have to score from the 2 in a blizzard.”'

Marker Eric Wood gives back to children with foundation [1:57 AM] reports: '“It was time to do something a little bigger than football in this area,” Wood said. “Dealing with families of sick kids and kids in general is something I am passionate about. It’s something that I grew up dealing with so I have compassion for those people. I felt like I could really make a difference in their lives.”'

Marker 6 questions going into Organized Team Activities [1:56 AM] reports: 'It’s a wide open, three way battle, between EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel, and Tyrod Taylor. And the Bills coaching staff insists no decision has been on a pecking order at the critical position.'

Marker Keeping guard up important for O-line [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It’s far too soon to conclude that the Bills fixed their weakest area on the team, guard, with the additions of veteran Richie Incognito and third-round draft pick John Miller. Or that center Eric Wood will rebound from what he would readily admit was the worst season of his career. Or that tackles Cordy Glenn and Seantrel Henderson will make the necessary strides to provide the consistency the Bills didn’t get from them last year.'

Marker Inaugural Kelly Tough run happens next Saturday [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Kelly and his wife, Jill, picked next weekend for the run because their daughter, Erin, recently published a book called “Kelly Tough,” ( and Kelly for Kids, another family foundation, will host a gala the evening afterward in Buffalo and a golf tournament June 1 in Batavia.'

Marker NFL's new extra point rule a welcomed kick in the pants [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The success rate for PATs from the traditional spot was 99 percent last season vs. 91 percent on field goals from 33 yards. What changes everything is that the defense will no longer take the extra point off. With a chance to score, and with no fear of the kicking team running a fake from that distance out, it will rush the house.'

Marker Buffalo Bills LB coach Bobby April says Ty Powell will push for starting job [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I think there's still competition for the starters, too," April said. "Ty Powell is having a good offseason. He's competing, he's playing hard for us. He's studying hard. He's smart. He's still in the mix. It's going to be a competitive camp, top and bottom of that roster. There's definitely opportunities there."'

Marker Should Buffalo Bills running back Fred Jackson retire? [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Jackson definitely still has a role, though. He's the best pass-blocking back on the roster and would be the team's first choice for carries if McCoy got hurt. Is Jackson completely safe? Maybe not, but he definitely shouldn't think about retiring this season. If the Bills, for some reason get rid of him, another NFL team could use his services in 2015.'

Marker Erin Kelly, in new book, tells what it's like being Jim Kelly's Daddy's girl [1:54 AM]
The Sporting News reports: 'I may not be “Jim Kelly big muscles,” but I am my dad’s daughter! I learned early on the wisdom and joy of doing what he said and striving to meet his expectations. For example, I can’t recall when I learned how to look someone in the eye and give a firm handshake but I’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember—because that’s what he taught me to do. “Erin, when I introduce you to someone, you look them in the eye and give a firm handshake,” he’d say sternly. And he didn’t just tell me once or twice; he made it very clear that that’s what Kellys do (and in case it hasn’t hit you yet, I realized I was a Kelly at a very young age). It’s called respect, and he made sure I understood what it meant and looked like in the most practical way from my most tender years—eye contact and a firm handshake.'

Marker TEs coach Sparano forging his own path [1:53 AM] reports: '“My father actually tried to do everything he could to convince me not to do it,” Sparano Jr. said. “He told me I was too smart for it and to do something else with my life so I didn’t have to move around and get involved with the hectic lifestyle that the profession can bring. As I got older it was the only thing I saw myself doing. It was my love, my passion, and I couldn’t see myself without the game.'

Marker Bills’ Powell wants to be more than special [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Powell has been the most impressive for me,” he said. “He’s just smart, picks things up quick. Obviously he was more of a special teams guy. Quite honestly, if he doesn’t play a snap, that’s fine by me because that means Preston Brown is playing. But I like Powell. He’s really jumped out to me.”'

Marker Dareus receives one-game suspension [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A suspension was not a surprise, and the fact it’s only for one game can be viewed as a win for the Bills. He’ll miss the game against the Colts, but will be back for the showdown against the New England Patriots in Week Two.'

Marker Why Sanjay Lal, Rex Ryan made the Buffalo Bills a perfect fit for Percy Harvin [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"We started fresh," Lal said at Bills offseason conditioning Tuesday. "We didn't listen to what the reputation was or what the media portrayed to be or any of that, because you don't know what actually happened."'

Marker Boobie Dixon chronicles Buffalo Bills' team bowling trip [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'But it wouldn't have been a Buffalo Bills' team building activity without a recap from running back Boobie Dixon, who used Instagram to update his followers on his team's bowling. Dixon seems to have lost a bet to veteran Fred Jackson, but neither was able to keep up with LeSean McCoy or Sammy Watkins.'

Marker NFL suspends Bills defensive tackle Dareus for 1 game [1:54 AM]
AP reports: 'It's unclear whether Dareus will face additional league discipline after being ticketed for crashing his car into a tree near a busy suburban Buffalo intersection also last May.'

Marker Bills' Dareus suspended for opener [1:53 AM]
The Sports Network reports: 'The third overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft, Dareus has started 60-of-63 games during his four-year tenure with Buffalo. The 25-year-old racked up 71 tackles and 7 1/2 sacks in 2013, then earned First Team All-Pro honors during his double-digit sack campaign last season.'
