Buffalo News reports: 'Felton is the forgotten signing, the one who inked a four-year, $9.2 million deal to serve as McCoy’s lead blocker. His position is going extinct elsewhere – but not in Buffalo where Rex Ryan plans on building a run-first operation. Heading into his eighth season, Felton is a survivor. He’s been cut. He’s been arrested. He’s been rushed to the hospital. He’s proving that, yes, teams should still carry a fullback.'

There might be a lot under the surface that we don’t know about.”'

Marker Bills’ Sammy Watkins says he’s injury-free [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I feel good and I’m ready to start,” said Watkins. “There’s a lot I have to make up.

It starts with the first day competing with the cornerbacks to see where I’m at.”'

With his personality, the way he runs his show, the way the players play for him, the way he is in the locker room, the feedback I got from the New York players about what kind of guy he is, I just knew it would be a perfect fit here."'

Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Whether it's injuries, replacing Da'Norris Searcy or simply disproving the notion that the secondary's success is simply the product of an elite pass rush, 2015 will be another year of the defensive backs trying to prove themselves all over again. Luckily, that's what they're best at.'

Marker Bills open camp with all eyes on quarterbacks [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I feel like daily I’m being asked about the quarterback competition, whether it's from friends, family, people on the street, whoever. And I literally have no idea. And I’m excited to see these guys in preseason games, in team settings in practice, getting to work with them with the pads on, with guys actually coming at them which is a big deal for a quarterback. I’m sure you guys are about ready for a starter to be named just like we are. But we got a whole lot of work before it will probably be announced.”'

Marker Who will be the Bills starting QB? [1:42 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'I can't say I have a strong conviction with this pick. I honestly would not be shocked if on opening day EJ Manuel or Tyrod Taylor are starting. The main reason why I chose Cassel is his experience. He has 10 years in the NFL and has made 71 starts so I'm thinking he could have an edge in getting a handle on Greg Roman's offense. I think the Bills are looking for a quarterback to manage the game and limit mistakes and I think Cassel, at this point, has a better chance of doing that than Manuel and Taylor.'

Marker Bills settle in for Camp Rex [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Attitude change, player additions, I think you would be lying if you said you didn’t see it or feel it. We’re excited about where we could go. But we have a whole lot of work before we get there. We’ve got a whole lot of work before we have that first game in September. Obviously, we’ve got some talented guys, but hopefully they understand that there’s a lot of work to get done before we can realize any kind of potential we have.”'

Marker Do the Bills have enough at quarterback? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“He’s not real accurate,” the executive said. “He has a weird, dart-throwing motion. For a big, strong-looking guy, he doesn’t throw the ball like one. … But sometimes it takes time. Sometimes, it’s tough when you’re thrown in there right away if you’re not Andrew Luck.”'

Marker Confident Watkins says it’s playoffs or bust [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“We have to show up. We have to win. Win games,” Watkins said. “Everybody’s buying tickets and everybody’s got this Super Bowl thing on us. We’ve got to come out here and win. Coming in Friday for practice, we’ve got to start it up. We’re not going to just go out there and win games because we have all these players. I think if we handle our business in practice, we definitely have a shot at the playoffs.'

Marker Bills depth chart: Analyzing the offense [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'This year, Kouandjio had the better offseason and is in the driver’s seat, but now the pads go on. Incognito solidifies the RG spot, and Miller, a third-rounder in 2015, has been a nice surprise who was plugged in as a starter from the day the Bills picked him. Wood and Glenn are locked in, and Urbik will be the key backup at both guard spots and center.'
