Buffalo Bills News - July 23, 2016

Marker 3 reasons to be excited about Buffalo Bills linebackers in 2016 [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Brown had an excellent rookie season playing in Jim Schwartz's 4-3 defense, but the transition to Ryan's 3-4 in his second year as a pro was not a smooth one. It's only fair to see how Brown adjusts after a full season in the system. He didn't back down from the public criticism and instead responded by showing greater vocal leadership and command of the scheme throughout spring practices. Now he has to carry that over into the season.'

Marker Bills arrive at training camp with questions to answer [1:56 AM]

Marker Bills receiver battles in camp should be intriguing [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If Watkins misses some or all of camp, there will be an even bigger opportunity for the players behind him on the depth chart. Watkins and Robert Woods are the only two receivers who are locks for the 53-man roster heading to training camp.'

Marker Aaron Williams makes plea for Bills to re-sign Fred Jackson [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'That decision will ultimately rest with General Manager Doug Whaley. It would be a reversal of Whaley's thinking from a year ago, when the team parted with one of its most popular players shortly before the start of the season.'

Marker Get to know the Bills' opponents: Offseason review of the Seattle Seahawks [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Will Rawls and Graham be ready to start the season coming off major injuries? Rawls, the undrafted free agent who took over at running back when Lynch was hurt, suffered a broken ankle and ligament damage, ending his rookie year early. He led the NFL with 5.65 yards per carry. Graham, meanwhile, tore the patellar tendon in his knee – a difficult injury to come back from. Even though his season was a disappointment when he got hurt, Graham led the team in targets at the time of the injury. It's clear both players are major contributors to the offense.'

Marker Bad news for Bills overshadows Rex Ryan's rosy outlook [1:56 AM]
AP reports: '"I thought we had a good offseason last year, but not like this. It's so much different," Ryan said. "I will challenge any team. I think we've won the offseason. But we need to win July."'

Marker Buffalo Bills capsule [1:55 AM]
AP reports: 'High hopes that followed Ryan's hiring last year have been replaced by skepticism after Bills lacked consistency and looked nothing like so-called bully coach proclaimed he would build.'

Marker Incognito: 'Ray Lewis hit me the hardest;' tells why he loves Rex [1:54 AM]

Marker Bills player campaigns for Fred Jackson's return [1:53 AM]

Marker Who are the Bills breakout candidates? [1:51 AM]

Marker 3 reasons Ronald Darby will excel in 2016 [1:50 AM] reports: '“I’ve seen a lot my first year. I’m more comfortable with recognizing formations and communication with vets and other guys on the field,” Darby said. “My second year being in the same defense will help me a lot.”'

July 21, 2016

Marker Bills plan safety net for Aaron Williams [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Even though the delicate procedure was a success and Williams has been cleared to return, he’s cautiously admitted that he won’t be 100 percent sure his neck will respond favorably to the physical demands of football until the pads come on and he takes his first hit.'

Marker James Wilder Jr. hopes to make a name for himself in the Bills' backfield [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'He’s not merely the son of James Wilder, a NFL great who rushed for more than 6,000 yards and 37 touchdowns. He’s not the practice-squad scrub in a state of depression. No, he’s an uber-confident, 6-foot-2, 228-pounder rocking an upside down, backward Bills visor and camouflaged shorts. He's the proud father now sprinting across this field with his daughter's kite, laughing with each stride. He’s the former No. 1 prospect in the country who really doesn’t care that his backfield in Buffalo is overcrowded.'

Marker Shaq Lawson responds to speculation on how much of his rookie season he could miss [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'At least so far, the network has a pretty good track record of reporting on Lawson's injury. When he was drafted, ESPN's Adam Schefter tweeted the following...'.

Marker Get to know the Bills' opponents: Offseason recap of the Miami Dolphins [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Can Gase work his magic with Tannehill? Entering the fifth season of his career, the pressure will be on Miami's quarterback to deliver a playoff team. The 38-year-old Gase has gotten a lot of credit for his work with Tim Tebow, Peyton Manning and Jay Cutler the past five years. Tannehill has started all 64 games in his career, has more than 15,000 passing yards and 92 total touchdowns against 68 turnovers. But he's never led the Dolphins to a record better than .500.'

Marker Enemkpali eager to start training camp [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I want to go back to camp and be in shape," Enemkpali said on the John Murphy Show on Wednesday night. "I just want to let my teammates know that we're here to win a championship. I want to go out and work everyday and handle myself like a true professional on and off the field. I just want to take my preparation, eating habits, and everything to the next level each year. You know, you want to do that."'

Marker How much time will Shaq Lawson miss? [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'However, a league source familiar with Lawson’s rehab told me that although there is no specific timetable for the first-round pick’s return as of right now, they are clearly not expecting him to miss that much time, and even expressed surprise at Riddick's comments.'

Marker Who backs up McCoy the first 4 weeks for the Bills? [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'While there are some reports that the Bills are interested in signing the 31-year-old Reggie Bush to the roster, fans should look no further than Mike Gillislee in the first four games. The mid-season pickup in 2015, Gillislee performed admirably for the team when pressed into the duties of the backup running back late in the year.'

Marker Will there be a sack resurgence? [1:52 AM] reports: '“I think a lot now is we’re going to try to dictate what an offense does,” said Manny Lawson, who is lining up at outside linebacker. “Instead of trying to mold our defense around the opposing offense we’re going to play our style of defense. We’re going to make the opponent game plan to stop our attack. You’re going to have to stop our attack to run or pass the ball.”'

Marker Which rookie will make the most immediate impact? [1:51 AM] reports: 'This offseason, the Bills filled up the roster with fresh faces. New talent on the field will contribute to the team’s efforts to come out on top this year. While the defense is focusing on turning a complete 180, the offense wants to piggyback off of the same success they achieved last year as the No. 1 rushing team in the league. Having the rookies on their side will give the Bills the push they need to hopefully get over the playoff hump this season. But who will play the biggest roles in that effort?'

Marker Sizing up the Buffalo Bills, the Browns’ Week 15 foe [1:50 AM] reports: 'The defense could potentially start as many three rookies next season and that could spell growing pains for the Bills if that’s indeed the case. It’s probably also worth watching how Taylor grows in his second season as the man in Buffalo and whether or not opposing defenses figure out a blueprint to slow down the dual-threat quarterback.'

Marker Sammy Watkins says he's 'right where I need to be' as training camp approaches [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Feeling good, healthy, nothing's bothering me. Just really prepared for whatever they do. I don't know what the situation is, but if they throw me out there, I just want to be prepared if they do. That's all I can do is prepare for it."'

Marker Signing of Bush would add another link of ’06 draft [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If they sign Bush, the Bills will have employed the top three picks of the 2006 draft, and five of the top 10. Mario Williams was the top pick in the ’06 draft. Bush was second. Vince Young, who competed for the Bills’ backup quarterback job in 2012 but was cut late in camp, was No. 3 overall.'

Marker Adding Boldin would add veteran presence to Bills [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If you want to add a veteran, let’s talk about receiver Anquan Boldin. He’ll be 36 in October. He’s probably waiting for what he feels is the ideal situation. It might not be Buffalo. But Boldin was superb under Greg Roman with the Niners in 2013 and 2014. He had 69 catches last season.'

Marker Tickets for Bills night practices available Wednesday [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: ' The limit is four per person.'

Rochester D&C reports: '"The more I speak and travel, I realize I don’t have it that bad. There are so many people that have it so much worse than I do," said the Pro Football Hall of Famer. "I just thank the good Lord for each and every day I have, and a lot of you guys do know me, I’m going to have fun. I might be going through a little pain, but who doesn’t? That’s all part of it. I played football."'
