Buffalo Bills News - July 14, 2016

Marker Who are the training camp sleepers? [1:47 AM] reports: 'The tight end offers athleticism on par with Charles Clay. Slightly taller and longer than Clay, Annen demonstrated impressive speed for a player his size (6-4, 247) and sure hands. The coaches took notice as well as he was getting consistent reps with the first team offense in the spring practices. With a firm working knowledge of the offense after serving on the practice squad late last season, Annen could land a coveted roster spot at tight end if his play from the spring carries through training camp.'

Marker How big a jump can the passing game make? [1:46 AM] reports: '“Everyone has something to prove in this league and if you think you don’t something is wrong,” he said. “That’s how I play. Every time you practice you should feel that way too. …My goal as I said from day one is to better myself and better the team too and ultimately prepare ourselves and get after everybody to make a Super Bowl run. We know it takes a one game at a time and one step at a time…”'

Marker Jim Kelly clarifies comments on Rex Ryan, describes cancer surgery and pleads for Tom Brady to retir [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"But Rex is a great football coach. I've never once said that he wasn't a good football coach. I hope he can do it. He's got the players this year. I think you keep Tyrod Taylor healthy ... we have a very good chance, because our defense is pretty solid. We have some weapons on offense. I'm excited about this year. I'm excited about what Rex brings, I just hope that they stay healthy so that he can be here for 10 or 15 more years."'

Marker writer predicts nine wins for the Bills; here's why we agree [1:58 AM]

Marker Bills offseason report: Rex Ryan a bit tempered, but expectations are not [1:55 AM]
USA Today reports: '"I've changed a lot," Ryan said of his first season with the Bills. "I went back to knowing that, you know what, I'm a guy that believes in myself a great deal, and I believe in the guys that are around me. But the way that I grew up, my way of playing defense, in my opinion, is the best way. And I think more than ever, it showed me that, and I'm not blaming anything else.'

Marker Do the Bills have sustainable defensive depth? [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'By now we know full well about the strength of the team in the starters. Even without the likes of Mario Williams, the Bills are still have a talented enough group of first-team players, and in my opinion, they can be good enough to help the organization compete for a playoff spot. That is, if no one really gets hurt.'

Marker Training camp preview: Rex Ryan pushing Bills [1:53 AM] reports: ' For the first time, Rex Ryan enters a season in Buffalo with a presumptive -- and productive -- starting quarterback boasting NFL experience.'

Buffalo News reports: 'Based on previous sales to season-ticket holders and group sales, individual tickets may not be available for all games.'

Marker Should Stephon Gilmore hold out? LeSean McCoy's health and who might back him up [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If he did hold out, the Bills could fine him up to $30,000 a day. That's a situation neither side would want to reach. Gilmore's teammates will certainly be watching to see how one of the team's best players is treated, but recent evidence suggests owners Terry and Kim Pegula take care of their own. Running back LeSean McCoy, left guard Richie Incognito, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus and left tackle Cordy Glenn have all gotten big-money extensions recently. That shows the front office is committed to rewarding those who perform well.'

Marker Bills Announce Individual Game Tickets [1:57 AM]

Marker Can Aaron Williams return to form? [1:55 AM] reports: '“It just felt great to be on the field,” Williams told “To put those cleats on and put that helmet on and running around. Doing what I love to do for a living is amazing. The words can’t describe what it’s like to be out there. Making plays is what I want to do. It’s my job. It’s what I’m supposed to do. Being able to play another year I’m just enjoying the experience.”'

Marker 5 defensive playmakers to watch [1:59 AM] reports: 'As of late, the talks surrounding Gilmore are not of his play but of his contract. Let’s not forget that he is a top tier cornerback. Last year despite all the growing pains Buffalo had converting defensive schemes, the 25-year-old padded his stats. With 18 pass defenses, three interceptions and 36 tackles, Gilmore could be even better in a pure Rex Ryan system.'

Marker 5 players who would be coveted the most [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'One way to determine the quality of your roster is to look at the players other teams wouldn't hesitate to acquire if they were available.'

Marker Tyrod Taylor holds key to Buffalo hopes [1:58 AM]
Boston Herald reports: 'They’ll probably need Tyrod to be special. He’s going into a contract year, so he’s got about 20-25 million reasons to play well. If he performs, the (average) quarterback (salary) number keeps going up and up, he has the chance to really cash in.'

Marker Three ways Rob Ryan will help the defense [1:57 AM] reports: 'Who better to reinforce Rex’s defensive philosophy than his twin brother, Rob? The Ryan brothers have modified their father’s famous ‘46’ defense to adapt to the current NFL. But the principles remain: an attacking style, pressure on the quarterback, disguised and simulated blitzes, and organized chaos.'

Marker Trade secrets: Thurman Thomas shares all with a Bills rookie [1:59 AM]

Marker Several Bills carry question marks into training camp [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'RB Karlos Williams: He showed up overweight in minicamp, maybe 20-25 pounds overweight. Even Ryan said the Bills would need to set a realistic weight-loss goal for Williams by Day 1 of training camp which probably means he'll be starting practice conditioning on the sideline. Can he return in time to keep his No. 2 job behind McCoy? Nothing is guaranteed. The team drafted Jonathan Williams, Mike Gillislee finished 2015 strong and don't count out James Wilder Jr., a tall, strong back who impressed coaches during the spring.'

Marker LeSean McCoy won't be charged over Philadelphia club brawl [1:56 AM]
AP reports: 'In a letter to union president John McNesby dated July 7, Castor says he thoroughly reviewed the case and his office won't be taking it over.'

Marker 5 positions to watch [1:53 AM] reports: 'Dezmin Lewis and Gary Chambers have something that Buffalo wide outs typically don’t have and that’s height. With both standing 6-foot-4, the duo has an added asset of catching high throws above their defenders. If either, or both, make the team, red zone efficiency could see an uptick.'

Marker Bills' legend Kelly gets good news from biopsy results [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Under a photo of a smiling Kelly, sitting in a chair in a hospital gown and with his legs covered by a blanket, Jill Kelly wrote: "This guy. And that smile. We're back in NYC. Jim's last scans came back inconclusive necessitating the need for biopsy surgery today. Please pray for good results and NO cancer. Thank you!!! #kellytough."'

Marker McCoy's attorney: Pennsylvania AG's investigation into brawl allegedly involving Bills [1:58 AM]

Marker Could Gilmore skip training camp and even more? [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That scenario could very well end up playing out in Denver, where Broncos star outside linebacker Von Miller is unhappy that the club has not made him the kind of offer he'll accept to replace the franchise tag he is wearing. Despite Miller's Super Bowl-MVP performance, the Broncos appear to have no inclination to give him the kind of money that would make him the NFL's top-paid defensive player. Consequently, some people around the league can see Miller holding out not just for all of training camp, but for the entire season.'

Marker Update: Jim Kelly's preliminary biopsy results show no sign of cancer [1:55 AM]
