Marker LeSean McCoy on alleged role in bar fight: 'There's no excuses for it' [1:44 AM]
ESPN reports: '"You don't hear about other guys like Peyton Manning or Tom Brady getting into incidents like that.

Nothing came out of it. It just sucks that your name gets dragged into so much negative press, you know, for just being in a situation that you had nothing to do with. But I mean but that's life.

Marker Tyrod Taylor must take steps forward for Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Being the quarterback, guys look to you for motivation, they look to you for a number of things,” he said. “But more so, the execution starts with you. If you can get everybody in the right place, if you’re going out there and executing at a high level each and every play, the guys can trust you and rely on you. So it starts with me and I have to lead by example out there on the field and continue to spread the message to my teammates, offense and defense.”'

Marker Bills not among teams with interest in Foles [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'General Manager Doug Whaley has made no secret about the tremendous amount of faith he has in Manuel as a backup. He has gone as far as to describe him as the best No. 2 QB in the NFL.'

Marker Power Take: Listenbee, Goodwin could give Bills no speed limit [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Defensive coordinators are going to play a safety over the top of Sammy Watkins a lot. But if Listenbee or Goodwin is a legitimate threat on the other side, opposing defensive coordinators will experience extreme pucker factor. I have to defend elite speed on both sides of the field? And I have to worry about LeSean McCoy’s elite speed? If the defense has to respect all three of those speed options, it will be as if the field is 70 yards wide and 120 yards long. It would give Buffalo a critical mass of elite speed.'

Marker Power Take: Woods doesn’t look the part of No. 2 receiver [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Defenses will double Sammy Watkins and dare Taylor to make tough throws. He needs another playmaking wideout. Woods doesn’t fit the bill.'

Marker Get to know the Bills' opponents: Offseason recap of the Cleveland Browns [1:55 AM]

Marker Ragged defense gets Ragland [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“We’re in the elevator and my dad goes, ‘My son is going to be the next Bruce Smith,’ " Ragland said of the chance encounter. “It’s crazy how it worked out. I’m going to play like Bruce, be like Bruce, but at the same time I know I have to create my own legacy.’''

Marker Buffalo Bills are reportedly interested in free agent QB Nick Foles [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Foles would be an upgrade, though maybe not a drastic one. After a breakout season in 2013 in which he threw 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions, Foles has come back down to earth. He's started just 19 games the last two seasons and thrown 20 touchdowns and 20 interceptions.'

Marker Bills' Sammy Watkins says foot is healed heading into camp, plays pickup basketball [1:52 AM]

Marker Football is back! Sort of... [1:50 AM]

Marker New Patriots receiver Chris Hogan on why he wanted out of Buffalo [1:49 AM]

Marker Ryan banking on rookies to shore up defense [1:48 AM]

Marker Bills training camp preview: Defensive Backs (CB and S) [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'It appears as though Gilmore is healthy and ready to go, but we won’t know until we actually see him on the field after recovering from shoulder surgery. That is, assuming he will even be at camp as he could possibly make a statement about his contractual situation. I expect him to be there day one, or shortly after if he misses any time at all. And as soon as he is, he’s immediately the team’s number one CB with Darby right behind him and lined up across from him. Last year, that tandem made up one of the best duos in the league and both will get the unquestioned starters’ reps at Fisher.'

Marker Ryan: Adolphus to get First-Team Reps in Training Camp [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I think a veteran guy needs to probably be in that leadership role for the Bills to sign, but I'm looking forward to what they have. It's not like they don't have running backs back there. There are young guys, are you looking for a veteran guy? I don't know. At this point I would maybe just wait and see," he said.'

Marker Expectations among Bills staff are high [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"We went in [to minicamp" target="_blank"> with the idea that we're going to get better, focus more, and learn our assignments to the best of our abilities, and we did that," Ryan said on the John Murphy Show on Thursday afternoon at training camp. "As we were leaving, it was like, 'Man, I guess we got this little bump in the road called summer vacation.' Everybody looks forward to it, but to me, I couldn't wait for [training camp" target="_blank">, to get back with the players. It's good that they get away a little bit, but they did so well. I just can't wait to see how we are, and if, in fact, we're taking off from where we left off."'

Marker Thurman Thomas Weighs in Taylor, Bush, Drought [1:44 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I think a veteran guy needs to probably be in that leadership role for the Bills to sign, but I'm looking forward to what they have. It's not like they don't have running backs back there. There are young guys, are you looking for a veteran guy? I don't know. At this point I would maybe just wait and see," he said.'
