Buffalo Bills News - June 18, 2017

Marker Jay Skurski's Bills mailbag: Tyrod Taylor talk, is Stephen Hauschka's job in jeopardy and [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Here's the thing, though: The Bills don't have any other options. The backups ranged from mediocre to brutal throughout the spring. Without Taylor, this is maybe a four-win team. The question of whether he is a franchise quarterback has been debated for the better part of two years now. The truth is, nobody has that answer, which is why the Bills brought him back, but only with a $10 million pay cut. If he shows he is, the team has him under contract for another season. If he shows he's not, he can be released with a moderate impact on next year's salary cap.'

Marker Buffalo Bills 53-man roster projection: Post-minicamp edition [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Cardale Jones is going to need quite the training camp to crack Buffalo's 53-man roster. He's clearly the team's No. 4 quarterback at this time and is the most likely to get cut by the Bills. Right now, T.J. Yates looks as though he'll be the No. 2 quarterback behind Tyrod Taylor, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Nathan Peterman surpass him on the depth chart in-season.'

Marker Maiorana: Bills are heading in right direction, but playoffs aren't likely in 2017 [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This team simply has too many questionable position groups, not enough elite-level players – only LeSean McCoy and Lorenzo Alexander among NFL Network’s recently-released top 100 - and a schedule that shapes up as one of the toughest in the league.'

Marker Buffalo Bills unveil 2017 training camp schedule [1:57 AM]

Marker Bills Today: Andre Holmes reflects on minicamp [1:55 AM] reports: '“One of the things is that we’ve been able to get into the classroom a lot more and been able to watch the film,” said Holmes. “Right on the same day of doing it and that’s kind of helped a lot. Really, exponentially as far as trying to understand just the system and that really has helped a lot.”'

Marker Jay Skurski's top 10 takeaways from the Bills' spring practices [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The backup quarterback situation for the Bills is unsettled, to put it kindly. T.J. Yates will head to camp as the No. 2, but his performance this spring didn’t inspire much confidence that the Bills will be in good hands if their starter gets hurt. Behind Yates, neither rookie Nathan Peterman nor second-year veteran Cardale Jones looked particularly good, either. Jones heads to camp as the clear No. 4 on the depth chart, which doesn’t bode well for his chance at sticking on the 53-man roster.'

Marker Bills notebook: Sean McDermott 'not into' winning offseason [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It's important that we win off the field first. That's how you set yourself up to win on the field. Now we handle this time off the field with class, No. 1, and then we put in the work to earn the right to win as a football team, myself included. That's what I expect. The players know that, the coaches know that."'

Marker Bills announce 2017 training camp schedule [1:57 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins entering make-or-break season, says Adam Schein [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Watkins just can't stay healthy," said Schein. "And it is such a shame. I thought he had superstar potential before the 2014 NFL Draft. Remember the hands and athleticism and body control?! The guy has flashed spectacular play at the NFL level. In 2015, he eclipsed 1,000 yards and scored nine touchdowns in 13 games.'

Marker Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott prefers 'process' over 'winning the offseason' [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I don't know if we won the offseason," McDermott said Thursday before the Bills' final minicamp practice. "I'm not into that. I'm into the process. I'm into where we are in our process and focused intently and only right now on that. That's what I'm focused on."'

Marker New-look Bills have a ways to go [1:50 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Here is where the Bills are: They still aren't good enough to compete with New England for the AFC East title, and unless several things fall into place, coupled with a few healthy doses of luck and good fortune, they probably won't make a serious run at a wild-card berth in the AFC.'

Marker Bills wrap-up 'hyper-competitive' minicamp; Next stop: training camp [1:49 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Wide receiver Sammy Watkins continued to increase his workload, getting more reps in 11-on-11 work against the defense. In one of those sessions, Watkins caught back-to-back passes, including a wide receiver screen.

Marker Coach McDermott press conference recap [1:44 AM] reports: '“Cordy remains week to week with the ankle,” he said. “That’s just all part of his rehab process, just trying to protect the area there. We expect him, anticipate him to be ready to go for training camp.”'

Marker What we learned at Bills minicamp - day 3 [1:43 AM] reports: '“It was hypercompetitive out there,” said Eric Wood after his ninth career minicamp. “There were a lot of guys trying to get better, a lot of guys competing. I would say it was the most competitive one I’ve been around. A lot of guys fighting for jobs. That happens when there’s a lot of turnover. Guys see openings and it paid off. We saw big strides from a lot of players out here and I thought it was run incredibly well.”'

Marker Bills announce 2017 Connors & Ferris Training Camp dates [1:42 AM] reports: '“The start of training camp is right around the corner and we are excited to return to St. John Fisher College, the summer home of the Buffalo Bills since 2000,” said Bills Managing Partner and President Russ Brandon. “We appreciate the hospitality that St. John Fisher and our fans in Rochester continue to provide us on a yearly basis.”'

Marker Bills Today: LeSean McCoy stands out again [1:41 AM] reports: '“He’s not just a running back. He can run the ball between the tackles. He can run outside. He can line up outside and threaten a defense there,” said Williams. “LeSean is a great guy, a great professional on and off the football field, so I’m just learning from him. He’s a playmaker.”'

Marker McDermott takes different approach to Bills’ discipline [11:49 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: '“There’s obviously value in continuity, and that comes through years of being able to do things the right way where you can acquire, you can develop, and then you look to retain those players,” McDermott said. “It’s our first year in this situation. That said – we’re not looking for any excuses, we’re looking to get the job done and be ready to play when that time comes.”'

Marker Jonathan Williams gets a small taste of what it will be like as Bills' No. 2 running back [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"This is something that can happen during the season," he told reporters. "You never know with the running back position, how physical it is. It could be an injury, or it could be an illness, or something like that and the guys have to step up."'

Marker Bills minicamp notebook: Cardale Jones a clear fourth string, Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde working we [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Jones is at a disadvantage in terms of knowing then offense when compared to Taylor and Yates, both of whom have previously played under offensive coordinator Rick Dennison. He was also drafted under a different front office and coaching staff than currently is in place, so Peterman is ahead of him in that regard, too. Considering all that, it's fair to put Jones squarely on the hot seat at training camp.'

Marker Fred Jackson to Prep Talk Awards audience: 'Never get complacent' [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"To be able to take part in something like this, enjoy it, but don't let it feel like the icing on the cake. One day maybe you'll end up back here doing the same thing I'm doing right now and you'll see how fun it is."'
