Marker Power play: Bills sign fullback Conner [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“A lot of teams don’t even have a fullback, and we’ve got two of them,” Ryan said Wednesday, after the team announced it had signed Conner as a free agent. “Two of the best fullbacks in the league are on our football team. So I think that may tell you a little bit about the type of style of football that we want to play.”'

Marker Ryan’s approach to Week Two: Brady or not, here we come [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Your job as a coach is to prepare your team to the best of your ability and that’s what I did,” he said. “I saw the Patriots as obviously a very capable opponent and that was really how I prepared. ... Any time you travel to a team, you’re conscious of leaving playbooks, stuff like that around. You’re always conscious of that. So that would be no different than any other team, I think, as far as playing a team.”'

Marker Physical fullback John Conner signs with Bills [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"When you look at 'What kind of team are the Bills?' Well, a lot of teams don't even have a fullback," Ryan said. "We have two of them, two of the best fullbacks in the league on our football team. So I think that may tell you a little bit about the type of style of football we want to play."'

Marker What Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan said about Tom Brady suspension and the New England Patriots [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"One thing I can tell you is we will be prepared to play against whoever we play. I'm not feeling sorry for anybody. We're going to play. Whoever shows up, we're going to play against them and we're going to be prepared."'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign Rex Ryan favorite John Conner, waive Corey Knox [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Buffalo Bills' offense is going to feature a fullback under new offensive coordinator Greg Roman, but Conner is still a long shot to make the roster. The Bills signed fullback Jerome Felton in free agency, and he figures to get most of the action with the first-team offense.'

Marker Bills' Ryan wants win against Pats -- Brady or not [1:54 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"No matter who's there, we're playing the Patriots Week 2, they're playing us," Ryan said Wednesday. "(Coach Bill) Belichick's going to bring his team in and he's going to have them prepared. And I'll promise you, I'm going to have our team prepared, as well. So that's really all I think about it. All the particulars and all that stuff, I really haven't given any thought to it."'

Marker Time may have finally arrived for Bills' Powell [1:53 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Powell knows nothing is going to be handed to him. The Bills have a total of eight linebackers on the roster, and given Ryan’s hybrid schemes, several of them can be asked to play inside or outside at any given time. It’s also a young position group, with players doing whatever they can to get noticed and win jobs. That means there’s always competition for Powell. “They’re coming in to compete and take your spot. And it’s a long season so anything can happen from now to the beginning of the season.”'

Marker Bills sign FB John Conner [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Tomake room for Conner and keep the Bills at the 90-man roster limit, the team announced the released of FB and Buffalo native Corey Knox.'

WGR-AM reports: '“I do enjoy the coaching staff that we have here,” Goodwin told reporters last week after one of the team’s voluntary workouts in Orchard Park. “I am very confident in everything. The changes that the organization has made, I think they will benefit me a lot. Definitely a fresh start. I am looking forward to this season.”'

Marker Deflategate - Make It Stop [1:50 AM]
Bills Daily reports: I’m happy to see a richly deserved punishment be served, but the amount of whining, crying, nonsensical arguments that permeates things here makes me think another 110” of snow might be a good thing – at least there would be something else to talk about.

Marker 11 questions with Rex Ryan on the Patriots, John Conner, and Bills rookies [1:49 AM] reports: 'The good thing, and Doug Whaley and I talk about it all the time, is that we’ll keep the best players. If that means two fullbacks, then so be it. Both (Jerome) Felton and John, can they contribute on special teams as well? I think both guys can. Clearly we brought Felton in to be the guy, but it just so happens that John Conner is still sitting out there and you know what, I know John and he’s a heck of a football player. He’s an excellent teammate, so let’s bring him in, let him compete and I would not be surprised if John makes our team.'

Marker Free agent FB John Conner signs with Bills [1:48 AM] reports: 'Conner, 27, visited with coaches at One Bills Drive Tuesday and signed Wednesday morning. A five-year veteran, Conner began his NFL career under Bills head coach Rex Ryan with the Jets in 2010, but he was not re-signed by New York after the 2012 campaign. After short stints with the Bengals and Giants, Conner, 27, returned to the Jets in 2014.'

Marker LB Tony Steward trying to move past thrill of being a pro [1:47 AM] reports: '“I went down and visited my agent and had my girlfriend with me and we really just stayed busy all day,” Steward told “We didn’t even watch the draft and in a fit of perfect timing we went back to his office to check in with one of his assistants and as soon as we sat down is when I got the call from the Bills. We kept ourselves busy, but when it happened it was an awesome moment for me and my girlfriend, my agent and my family."'

Marker Graham could be safety net for Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I’m able to play safety,” Graham said last week. “I’m able to play whatever they want. I’m pretty sure we’re going to be able to be creative to get guys on the field. If they ask me to do it, I’ll do it."'

Marker Bills cash in on military salutes, local arenas do not [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'What the $679,000 bought from the Buffalo Bills is unclear.'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign 2015 draft picks Nick O'Leary, Dezmin Lewis [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Meanwhile, Lewis, a wide receiver who played at Central Arkansas, faces a bit of an uphill climb to make the roster. The 6-foot-4 wide receiver brings a size element that the Bills lack at wide receiver, but he will have to beat out 2013 third-round pick Marquise Goodwin just to be the No. 6 wide receiver on the depth chart. Even then, there's no guarantee the team will keep that many receiver.'

Marker ESPN '30 for 30' will feature Buffalo Bills' four straight Super Bowl losses [1:56 AM]

Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"They'll make a push, and I'm sure they'll have a really good team again next year, and that's good, because we have a lot of confidence in our team as well," Wood said. "I wouldn't want there to be a whole lot of excuses if we do pull that thing out."'

Marker Hall of Fame QB Jim Kelly gets, gives inspiration [1:54 AM]
Charlotte Observer reports: '“I’m just here to get people to understand the never-give-up attitude,” said Kelly, who recovered from a career-threatening arm injury his senior year at Miami to become one of the best quarterbacks of all time. “The bottom line for me is to make sure that people know that when you surround yourself with good people that good things will happen,” Kelly said.'

Marker Bills sign draft picks O'Leary, Lewis to rookie contracts [1:53 AM]
AP reports: 'Lewis was a three-time All-Southland conference selection at Central Arkansas. The 6-foot-4, 212-pound wide receiver finished his college career with 197 receptions for 2,618 yards and 24 touchdowns.'

Marker Bills' Wood surprised by length of suspension on Brady [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I thought it was pretty crazy. I didn’t know how harsh they’d come down on him. Anyone in the AFC, you know we never wish injury upon anybody to eliminate a guy. We never wish a suspension but the Patriots are less daunting without Tom Brady, that’s for sure."'
