Marker Richie Incognito among 5 biggest question marks on Buffalo Bills offensive line [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Since joining the Bills, Richie Incognito has done everything right. He's been in attendance for every workout — both voluntary and mandatory. He has said all the right things to media and even managed to work himself into the bulk of the first-team reps at guard. While the off-the-field concerns are the main issue with Incognito, there also isn't a guarantee that he can still play at a high level. He's been out of the league for more than a year, so he's going to have to prove himself all over again.'

Marker Bills tell McCoy no-go on logo [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills official logo was included on the invite, which was deleted from Instagram shortly after the team released the following statement...'.

Marker What players can't afford a slow start at Bills camp? [1:53 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Any Tight End not named Charles Clay.'

Marker McCoy posts, deletes 'females only' party invite [1:52 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The party was scheduled for Sunday, July 26. The Bills are set to check in at training camp at St. John Fisher College on Wednesday. July 29.'

Marker Bills top 20 talents: No. 13 - LB Preston Brown [1:51 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Now with Alonso out of the way, Brown is in the clear to resume his role as a starter at linebacker. When in a 4-3 scheme, Brown will be the middle linebacker, and then just an inside backer when in an odd-man front. He'll team up with Nigel Bradham as an up-and-coming duo that will help stabilize Rex Ryan's defense. While Brown may not have as much potential for improvement as Bradham, he's still a solid product in his own right.'

Marker Bills top 20 talents: No. 14 - CB Ronald Darby [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'As it stands, there is no immediate playing time available to Darby at the start of training camp. Stephon Gilmore is the top cornerback, Leodis McKelvin is the other starter, and Nickell Robey has a firm grasp on the nickel corner position. For Darby to begin the season as a regular starter, he'll have to vastly outplay McKelvin through camp and the preseason, or, an injury will have to occur. However, Darby's talents indicate he should get a shot sooner rather than later. And with the way that McKelvin has struggled throughout his career in man-to-man matchups, it would be fair to think Darby could start as early as the second month of the season.'

Marker Can Buffalo’s Sammy Watkins be a star in second year? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In retrospect, the Bills probably could’ve stayed put at No. 9 and taken the ridiculous talent from LSU. Beckham Jr. averaged 109 yards and one touchdown per game. If Watkins was solid, Beckham Jr. looked potentially transcendent. Beyond him, Tampa Bay’s Mike Evans (68 receptions for 1,051 yards with 12 touchdowns), Carolina’s Kelvin Benjamin (73-1,008-9), Miami’s Jarvis Landry (84-758-5) and Philadelphia’s Jordan Matthews (67-872-8) all burst onto the scene.'

Marker Marquise Goodwin takes silver at Pan Am Games [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The 2013 third-round pick placed second in the long jump at the Pan American Games with a jump of 27 feet, 1 3/4 inches. Goodwin, who was a two-time NCAA champion at Texas, previously took 10th at the 2012 Olympics in London and fourth at the U.S. championships last month. Whether or not Goodwin looks to compete in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro probably depends on where his football career is at that point.'

Marker Dinosaur BBQ to serve at Bills games [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The deal between the team and the restaurant chain had been in the works since the Bills played the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium last October, when Bills officials spoke with Dinosaur owner John Stage about a possible sponsorship.

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Marquise Goodwin wins silver medal for long jump at Pan Am Games [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I like track and field for the simple reason that I determine my own outcome," Goodwin said. "I don't rely on my coach or the president or the CEO making a decision. I'm kind of like the CEO of my own corporation. I make the calls on if I'm going to be here or going to be there, as opposed to football where other people are making that decision. Other people are in charge of how much you play and what plays you get. In that aspect, I like that about long jumping."'

Marker Dinosaur Bar-B-Que to debut at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2015 [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The popular barbecue restaurant which opened a location in Syracuse back in 1988 and arrived in Buffalo in 2014, has been named the official barbecue of the Buffalo Bills and will now be featured at concessions stands inside Ralph Wilson Stadium during Bills home games. Dinosaur Bar-B-Que will also have a standalone concession stand inside the stadium operated by the restaurant's staff.'

Marker Late NFL owner aims part of $1.2B to SE Michigan causes [1:53 AM]

Priorities for funding include health lifestyles, early childhood and youth development, caregivers, community development and economic growth.'

Marker Ralph Wilson foundation dedicates itself to Mich., N.Y. [1:52 AM]

The Sports Xchange reports: '"My teammates give me a hard time about that all the time," Goodwin told ESPN. "'Hey, if you catch the ball and get in an open field, I want you to long jump from the 10 into the end zone.' ... I might make it happen one of these days."'

Marker Marquise Goodwin happy with 'surreal' silver medal [1:47 AM]
ESPN reports: '"I love long-jumping, and if I'm granted the opportunity without repercussions, then I will pursue it further," he said, "but I'm obligated to Buffalo Bills football and that's the main focus."'

Marker 9 Bills players to be excited about heading into camp [1:46 AM]

Marker Goodwin wins silver at Pan Am Games [1:45 AM]

Goodwin’s Team USA teammate Jeffrey Henderson won gold with a jump of 8.54-meters while Emiliano Lasa of Uraguay took home bronze with a leap of 8.17-meters.'

Marker Bills top 20 talents: No. 15 - WR Robert Woods [1:44 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Teams will be keying on Sammy Watkins, Percy Harvin, and LeSean McCoy, giving Woods a huge opportunity to beat a weaker defensive back in a one-on-one matchup. He won't exploit a defense completely and take over a game, but he is effective at finding open space and exploiting it for yards after the catch.'

Marker Bills top 20 talents: No. 16 - CB Nickell Robey [1:43 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'On defense, there is no arguing the Bills had a tremendous season in 2014, but Robey's potential output was sacrificed for that type of scheme. Now with head coach Rex Ryan, the man that took Pettine under his wing in Baltimore and then in New York, Robey's potential impact on the year as both a cover man and a blitzer is very high. If only he was a few inches taller. However, his ability makes up for it.'

Marker Will the run defense crack the top 10? [1:42 AM] reports: 'Last year’s success was encouraging, but Buffalo is undergoing another defensive scheme change, their fifth in five seasons. The good news is Rex Ryan has a proven track record against the run and the depth and caliber of talent is virtually unchanged on the defensive side of the ball.'

Marker Dinosaur Bar-B-Que to debut at Ralph Wilson Stadium in 2015 [1:41 AM] reports: '“We can’t think of a better way to spend gameday than smoking some BBQ at Ralph Wilson Stadium and being a part of the Bills fans and family. It’s going to be a great and exciting season” - Rene de la Garrigue, President & Chief Executive Officer of Dinosaur Bar-B-Que Restaurants.'

Marker Who will start at strong safety? [1:40 AM] reports: 'Rambo came to the Bills late last season, but made a significant impact. He picked off Aaron Rodgers twice in Buffalo’s Week 15 victory over the Green Bay Packers. While Aaron Williams was rehabbing this spring, Rambo took first team reps.'

Marker Analysis: pre-camp resolution not good for Kromer or Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'A pre-camp resolution would strongly signal the Bills aren't concerned with how the criminal case turns out. According to an NFL source, they are pretty well satisfied with the information gathered in conjunction with the league, and what they have learned doesn't make the situation look any brighter for Kromer than what was contained in a disturbing police report.'

Marker Wilson Foundation to announce spending plans [1:58 AM]

Olean Times Herald reports: '“It’s almost difficult to get your head around it.
