Buffalo Bills News - April 14, 2017

Marker Patriots hosted Buffalo Bills RFA Mike Gillislee on visit (report) [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'New England signed Rex Burkhead in free agency, but continue to show interest in adding additional running backs. The Patriots have met with Adrian Peterson and are supposedly interested in re-signing LeGarrette Blount.'

Marker Mock watch 5.0: NFL Draft less than two weeks away [1:49 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'The Buffalo Bills have added pieces in free agency, from recent signing of depth quarterback TJ Yates to addressing holes on the defense with signing such as defensive back Micah Hyde. Still, the Bills have more to fill and have at least six more players en route to Buffalo via the draft.'

Marker A look back at the best and the worst of Buffalo Bills drafts [1:48 AM]
Rochester Business Journal reports: 'Worst Pick: Aaron Maybin, first round, 2009. Sadly, there are so many flops from which to choose.'

Marker Source: Bills still deciding on Watkins' 5th year option [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'While exercising the option seems like a slam-dunk by most analysts and observers (and I still believe the Bills will ultimately do it), I’m told the reason the team has yet to decide is because the option is guaranteed against injury. Since the Clemson product entered the league in 2014 he’s had numerous ailments that have kept him off the field. He’s missed 11 games the past two seasons, including eight last year after breaking a bone in his foot and is currently recovering from a second surgery he had in January to repair that foot.'

Marker Examining the Bills' current salary cap situation [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '‚ÄčAs it stands right now, the 51st salary on the roster is CB Kevon Seymour's $565,089. The next-lowest salary is $540K, which is the amount of a veteran minimum deal for a player with exactly one year experience. So, essentially, any player signed to more money than that right now will count for his normal cap hit minus $540K, since that $540K will then fall below the top-51 threshold. Once a new threshold is established the player will count his cap number less that new amount.'

Marker NFL Mock Draft No. 4 (4/13/17) [1:45 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'S Jamal Adams, LSU.'

Marker Bills Today: McDermott's message well-received in Bills locker room [1:44 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"The vision is to compete every day. That starts with me," McDermott said. "I get up every day trying to earn the right to win. I believe in that process, and in this business it's six inches the difference between winning and losing every week. I think the average margin of victory in the NFL last year was plus-or-minus-10 points. The margin for error is very small, and that means we have to out-work our opponents."'

I always appreciated his text messages reminding me that ‘life is all about making memories.’'

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Power Take: I thought it was a bad QB class [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'There's virtually no chance any of the top QBs will be there in the second round. They could trade up, but they have limited resources. There's a one-year out in Taylor's latest extension, so they could take a QB at 10 and let him sit behind Tyrod for a year.'

Marker Mark Gaughan: Honorable Tom Modrak was a gray man in Bills' drought [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'What kind of job did Modrak do for the Bills? That's where it gets gray. Not good enough, for sure. That's a fact for everybody involved with the football administration of the franchise the past 17 years. But it's hard to make too many definitive statements about Modrak's contributions to the Bills' because he never was the one in full control of the team's personnel.'

Marker 3 reasons the Bills should draft: Notre Dame QB DeShone Kizer [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'He moves extremely well for his size. Kizer is nimble enough on his feet to slide and shuffle in the pocket to extend plays. He has great open-field quickness that allows him to run away from defenders and make big plays. But when moving behind the line, Kizer consistently maintains poise and constantly keeps his eyes downfield. He has had 18 rushing touchdowns in the last two seasons.'

Marker Former Buffalo Bills personnel executive Tom Modrak dies [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Modrak came to the Bills in 2001, shortly after that year’s NFL Draft. He rejoined Tom Donahoe, who was then in his first year as the Bills’ general manager, after the two had worked together for several years with the Pittsburgh Steelers. When Donahoe was fired following the 2005 season, Modrak was retained, and he went on to run the Bills’ drafts until his dismissal in 2011.'

Marker Buffalo Bills 'desperate' for a quarterback, NFL scout tells B/R's Mike Freeman [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Quarterback in play here in a big way. I think this is where (North Carolina QB) Mitchell Trubisky goes. In a normal year where there's a decent amount of [quarterback prospects" target="_blank">, a player like [Trubisky" target="_blank"> would go in the late first round. Teams like the Bills are desperate."'

Marker 2017 NFL Mock Draft: Todd McShay makes three picks for the Buffalo Bills [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Multiple scouts have voiced concerns to me about who Foster surrounds himself with," McShay said, "but he's one of the 10 best football players in the draft and worth the risk at this point. First-year coach Sean McDermott wants more speed at linebacker, and Foster certainly has that. He's an explosive tackler who can get sideline to sideline in a hurry."'

Marker McDermott: We have to work for every inch [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"The vision is to compete every day. That starts with me," McDermott said live in studio with Howard Simon and Jeremy White on Wednesday morning. "I get up every day trying to earn the right to win. I believe in that process, and in this business it's six inches the difference between winning and losing every week. I think the average margin of victory in the NFL last year was plus-or-minus-10 points. The margin for error is very small, and that means we have to out-work our opponents."'

Marker McDermott: 'Maybe these QB trips were just a smokescreen?' [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“It's kind of like hiding your gifts, the presents, from the kids. You kind of put them in different spots. It’s a big mystery at this point. No one ever really knows because you never know who's going to be there at number ten where we pick. So you’ve we just gotta go you gotta do the homework and study it up.”'

Marker 5 WRs Bills should consider on Day Two (4/12/17) [1:44 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'I’ll start this off by saying my first post-season exposure to Josh Reynolds, before digging into his work at A&M, was the Senior Bowl. To put it lightly, I was not impressed.'

Marker Bills Today: Cromartie up for the challenge [1:43 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“I control my work ethic, I control my attitude,” Cromartie said. “I took the situation and I made the best out of it. The journey has been long, but I’m still here. I take pride in that.”'

Marker T.J. Yates' addition could provide a big lift to Bills' QB room [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Yates instantly becomes the one player they have with a thorough understanding of the scheme of new offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. Yates learned it during the three seasons (2011-2013) they spent together with the Houston Texans when Dennison was their offensive coordinator.'

Marker 3 reasons the Bills should draft: North Carolina QB Mitchell Trubisky [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'He is built like a classic pocket passer, but has excellent mobility. His solid frame and strong arm are enough to make him attractive to any team seeking a long-term starter. It's the added bonus of his tremendous athleticism that sets him apart from other quarterback prospects. Trubisky's raw talent is immense, as is his confidence as a passer. No part of the field is ignored when he throws.'

Marker Buffalo Bills OL coach worked out Kutztown guard Jordan Morgan (report) [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Four-year starter at left tackle who was able to physically overwhelm much smaller opponents across from him. Morgan is a good athlete with the nastiness as a run blocker that is necessary to transition inside to guard, but he could be headed for early struggles mirroring NFL rushers in pass protection. Morgan could become a solid NFL backup with eventual starter potential if he improves his balance and stops lunging."'

Marker Buffalo Bills reach out to Chad Kelly to be part of local combine, says agent [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Although Kelly won't be able to throw for the next three months, the Buffalo Bills have expressed interest in having the quarterback attend the team's local pro day according to Kelly's agent.'

Marker 2017 NFL Mock Draft: PFF has Buffalo Bills landing Alabama DL Jonathan Allen [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Although it'd be tough to pass on Allen, the Bills would likely look to trade down if McGuinness' mock draft came to fruition. In addition to Allen, prospects such as Malik Hooker, Jamal Adams, O.J. Howard, Corey Davis and Solomon Thomas were all available at pick 10. Buffalo could move down a few spots and still land one of these prospects while also adding additional draft picks.'

Marker 2017 NFL Draft: Should the Buffalo Bills draft a quarterback at 10? [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'However, the Bills are obviously doing their homework. Dismiss it as a smokescreen if you want to, but McDermott has said from day one that he's going to be thorough and methodical in every aspect of running this team. He wouldn't be doing his job if he didn't get a close look at the best quarterbacks in this class. What if he's enamored with one or more of the quarterbacks in this draft? That quarterback could sit behind Taylor and take over in 2017 if the team cuts Taylor loose.'
