Marker How-to guide for fans heading to Buffalo Bills Training Camp [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Note: Mendon and Sutherland will serve as primary lots and Barker Road and Calkins Road as overflow lots, with the exception of July 27, when Mendon and Barker Road will be the primary lots.'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign Bacarri Rambo, Sam Barrington, Karim Barton, release two [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Barrington spent the first three seasons of his career with the Green Bay Packers. The linebacker was a seventh round pick of the team in the 2013 NFL draft. He appeared in seven games as a rookie, but ultimately landed on the team's injured reserve. His best season came in 2014 when he appeared in 14 games (7 starts) and recorded 53 total tackles. Barrington was among the Packers' starting linebackers in 2015, but he would suffer a foot injury in Week 1. He'd once again land on the Packers' injured reserve.'

Marker 8 under the radar players who could earn roster spot with Buffalo Bills [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Jonathan Williams is the favorite to win the No. 2 running back job behind LeSean McCoy, but there are still one or two running back jobs to be won. Cedric O'Neal stood out at times during OTAs and is a player to keep an eye on at training camp. If O'Neal carries his strong spring into camp, the running back could land a spot on Buffalo's 53-man roster.'

Marker 5 position battles to watch at Buffalo Bills training camp [1:51 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Make no mistake, Tyrod Taylor is your starter, behind him is where this battle will ensue. The Bills have three more fighting for (likely) two spots. TJ Yates was added as a veteran presence as the journeyman has spent six years backing up in the NFL, including a sliver of postseason experience. Cardale Jones barely has six minutes of NFL experience, but the second-year thrower did make an appearance in the season finale last year. Rookie Nathan Peterman was selected fifth-round in this year's draft. Early odds has Jones as the odd-man out, but that could change in Pittsford.'

Marker Riverdale alumni, NFL lineman Cordy Glenn gives back to Alma Mater [1:50 AM]
Clayton News Daily reports: '“This is a very special deal for so many of our players,” Riverdale head coach Terry Herrod said. “A large number of our guys before today had never owned a new pair of football cleats. We have been recycling cleats for the past five years. Cordy impacted a lot of young men today with his gift.”'

Marker Bills sign 3 players, including safety Rambo; release 2 [1:49 AM]
AP reports: 'The Bills also signed offensive lineman Karim Barton and outside linebacker Sam Barrington. Barrington has four years of NFL experience and split last season between Kansas City and New Orleans.'

Marker Bills bring back Rambo, sign two others [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills have also released linebacker Anthony Harrell, while center Patrick Lewis has been designated as waived/non-football injury (knee).'

Marker Bills open camp asking familiar question: Is Tyrod Taylor their franchise QB? [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“If you look at the playoff teams, the consistent guys that at least qualify for the playoffs or are close every year, most of them have QBs. Most of them have a legit quarterback,” Beane said. “If you want to use the word franchise, whatever word you want to use, so I understand that. Cam in Carolina was, is, a franchise quarterback. If you’re a GM, you have to find a franchise quarterback. It obviously helps keep you on a consistent playing field if you have one, so I get that.”'

Marker Bills sign S Bacarri Rambo, LB Sam Barrington & OL Karim Barton [1:46 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Barton went undrafted in 2014 and has bounced around the league as a practice squad player.'

Marker 11 Bills selected as top players in the NFL [1:45 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'LeSean McCoy led the way for Buffalo, cracking the list at 52.'

Marker Bills sign Bacarri Rambo, LB Barrington, OL Barton [1:44 AM] reports: 'Buffalo brought back a familiar player in Rambo. The 27-year old safety played two seasons with the Bills (2014-2015) appearing in 19 games making eight starts over that span. His biggest game came in the 2014 season when he picked off Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers in a 22-13 upset win over the Packers.'

Marker Bills Today: PFF: Bills had most explosive rushing attack in 2016 [1:43 AM] reports: 'Since the NFL began in 1960, the world has seen some of the best athletes compete in the national spotlight. On the list comes in two Buffalo Bills players – One former and one current.'

Marker 3 - Can Buffalo's defense return to the top 10? [1:42 AM] reports: '“We’re implementing a 4-3 scheme and the guys have really bought into that and that’s what we’re practicing and that’s what we’re looking forward to,” said defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. “That’s what Sean [McDermott" target="_blank"> is most familiar with, with his experience in Carolina and our experience together in Philadelphia, and that’s what we’ve brought to Buffalo as well. We think it fits our players well.”'

Marker Training camp countdown: 3. How many new starters will there be on the offensive line? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills wouldn't have moved up into the second round to draft Dawkins if they didn't think he could challenge for a starting job in short order. Mills was the Bills' lowest-graded offensive lineman in 2016, according to PFF. He allowed seven sacks and was called for four holding penalties.'

Marker Bills notebook: Boldin, 3 D-linemen visit; Washington pleads not guilty [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Boldin has 1,076 career receptions for 13,779 yards and 82 touchdowns.'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Power Take: O.J. Simpson is nothing more than a convicted felon [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Simpson is a narcissistic former football star, actor and con man was found innocent of two murders and later convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping. He's a felon who did his time. That's my two cents. He's not worth a penny more. Ironically, in my attempt to minimize him, he still made the headline.'

Marker 19,000 took part in Independent Health-Buffalo Bills challenge [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The series of six-week challenges – which started in the fall of 2014 – was designed to help people bring more physical activity and good nutrition into their daily lives. Prizes sweeten the desire for challenge participants, who are asked to meet three daily goals: Do 20 minutes of physical activity; eat five servings of fruits and vegetables; and drink eight glasses of water.'

Marker 10 questions on everyone's mind heading into Bills Training Camp [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Taylor is 15-14 as the Bills’ starter, as mundane as it gets, though he’s actually done better than most Bills quarterbacks throughout their history. However, he still makes more plays with his legs than he does his arm which is not what you want from your quarterback. And there are too many throws that he doesn’t make, or doesn’t make well enough, robbing the Bills of potential big plays. And yet, despite his deficiencies, he guided a Buffalo offense that scored 399 points in 2016, most in a season since 1998, a total that ranked them tied for 10th in the NFL. Their 46 offensive touchdowns were the fourth-most in team history, and the 12 turnovers set a new franchise low. Maybe new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison, who Taylor worked with briefly in Baltimore in 2014, can get more out of him this season. If not, his time in Buffalo will likely end.'

Marker Samsung Frankfurt Universe QB Marcus McDade works out for Buffalo Bills (report) [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'It's unknown why the Bills held a work out with McDade as the team enters training camp with Tyrod Taylor, T.J. Yates, Nathan Peterman and Cardale Jones already on their roster.'

Marker Buffalo Bills host Roy Miller, Leger Douzable, Devon Still on free-agent visits [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'All three of these veterans play on the interior of the defensive line. The Bills could be assessing their options in the event that second-year defensive tackle Adolphus Washington is suspended or the team decides to move on from him after his recent arrest. He pleaded not guilty to a concealed weapon charge after getting arrested outside of an Ohio water park a few weeks ago.'

Marker USA Today predicts Buffalo Bills to finish with NFL's third worst record in 2017 [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Buffalo currently owns the league's longest playoff drought so it's understandable that Davis and USA Today don't see the team making the playoffs, but 4-12 may be a bit too low in terms of where the Bills fall.'

Marker 10 Buffalo Bills veterans on the roster bubble entering training camp [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Among the offensive veterans listed, T.J. Yates may have the best odds of cracking Buffalo's 53-man roster. Yates enters training camp as the favorite for the Bills' backup job due to his knowledge of the offense, but he's no roster lock. If rookie Nathan Peterman outperforms Yates for the No. 2 job, Buffalo may have to think long and hard about whether they rather have Yates or Cardale Jones as their third quarterback. Jones' upside could prove to be more valuable than Yates' veteran presence.'

Marker 8 underdogs Buffalo Bills fans will be rooting for at 2017 training camp [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The battle for roster spots at wide receiver should be wide open at training camp, and don't be surprised if fans take a liking to Brandon Reilly. The former hockey player walked on to the Nebraska football team, so he's in a familiar spot as an undrafted free agent in Buffalo. He's a bit undersized and doesn't have the breakaway speed, but he makes a lot of tough catches and could stand out during camp.'

Marker Former Buffalo Bills TE Chris Gragg talks injury, future, being a free agent in 2017 [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '"It was really a freak injury. Most ACLs, most people do it non-contact when they're running and cutting. Mine came from an actual," Gragg said.'

Marker 5 storylines as the Buffalo Bills enter training camp [1:48 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Is Tyrod elite?: Just a little shout out to his former teammate Joe Flacco with the section header, but this is a vital year in quarterback Tyrod Taylor's career. As mentioned before, he's in a new offensive system and the team has doubled-up on first-round picks in next year's draft, presumably to grab another quarterback to groom with rookie Nathan Peterman. Additionally, Taylor, 27, is essentially on a one-year contract once again. What must he do to lock up a long-term deal?'

Marker Buffalo Bills: 5 things to watch at 2017 training camp [1:47 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'Peterman probably isn't going anywhere. The Bills could easily keep him as a No. 3 option. The question then is who will be No. 2? Will the Bills go with another young quarterback in Jones? Or will they sign Yates as a veteran option in case Taylor gets hurt? That's a competition worth watch.'

Marker 'We're looking to accrue good football players': Q&A with Bills' McDermott [1:46 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '“Well, it’s always a challenge because of the limited opportunities that we do get. We try to make the most of those opportunities and encourage the players to do the same. Even though they may start off at one position on the depth chart, and may have fewer opportunities than somebody else in the upper part of the depth chart, they can make the most of those opportunities. When they do that, that’s controlling what they can control. And that’ll grab our attention.”'

Marker Bills DT Washington pleads not guilty to weapons charge [1:45 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'A pre-trial hearing for Washington is set for Aug. 1, according to the Hamilton County Municipal Criminal and Traffic Court.'

Marker Adolphus Washington pleads not guilty to misdemeanor gun charge [1:44 AM]
ESPN reports: '"I believe the charges are factually and legally inappropriate," Washington's attorney, Clyde Bennett, told ESPN. "I don't believe that Mr. Washington committed any crimes. That is why we have filed a motion to dismiss. Our intent and plan is to have the charges against him dismissed."'

Marker Bills' camp questions: Can Marcell Dareus rebound from lost 2016? [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Hopefully the new regime, the new culture, the new way of doing things -- what you'd like to see is for Marcell to jump on board,” Beane said. “And not only do it himself, but he's been in the league long enough, you'd like to see him grabbing some others. First of all, before you can lead, you have to do it yourself. I'm not just talking about Marcell. That's anybody."'
