Marker LeSean McCoy not among PFF's top 101 graded NFL players [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"He had without a doubt an excellent season, but fell short of the 101 list by a narrow margin," PFF's Sam Monson wrote in an article explaining 10 notable snubs. "The single biggest thing that kept McCoy out was his performance as a blocker. This may seem like an insignificant thing for a running back, but in today’s league, backs need to be able to pass block, or their quarterbacks are in trouble. That’s why rookie runners often don’t see the field in passing situations, and it’s why complete backs are still such a valuable commodity — they can be trusted to keep their QBs upright.'

Marker No Bills stadium discussions occurring, Zemsky says [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"A lot of work and money have been invested in the stadium in recent years," said Zemsky, a Buffalo resident who also heads Empire State Development, the state's development arm.

Marker Sully's Mailbag: Bottoming out is best for the Bills [1:58 AM]

Marker Rival GM expects Buffalo Bills to draft QB in first two rounds, says Matt Miller [1:57 AM]

Incognito was a key part of the Buffalo running game, which was one of the best in the league, buoyed by QB Tyrod Taylor's ability to make plays with his legs. Incognito also allowed 23 total QB pressures all season."'

Marker Bills' chances of landing Tony Romo deemed 'long shot' -- but are they? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'On the flip side, under the "why this couldn't" work, it says "with the Bills likely to part ways with the quarterback who elevated the offense, ranking ninth in Total QBR in 2016 and seventh in 2015, it's hard to imagine they would then go for Romo: an older quarterback with a history of injuries who hasn't played a full season since 2014."'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Mailbag: With Taylor, it's an either-or proposition [1:57 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Kolby Listenbee ready for 'clean slate' after lost rookie season [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"For sure," Listenbee said. "I feel like I bring a lot of things to the field and to the team also. I jsut know I just have to work on small things like route running. Well that's a really big thing, and just confidence. Just knowing the whole entire scheme so I can go out there and make plays."'

Marker Buffalo Bills receive 'D' grade for 2016 NFL draft class from [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"In many ways," Orr said, "the 2016 draft followed the Rex Ryan playbook closely: defense, defense, defense and a raw, athletic quarterback who entertained Ryan in the lead up to the draft (but one the Bills will never spend the time or effort to develop). In the nicest of possible ways, the Bills could earn a grade of incomplete for their 2016 picks because first-round pick Shaq Lawson made it fewer than 300 snaps with a lingering shoulder issue (he finished with two sacks in 10 games), while second-round pick Reggie Ragland partially tore his ACL and missed the entire season.'

Marker Friday Feels: Five thoughts on the Buffalo Bills [1:53 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'The more the merrier is the way I roll when it comes to the NFL Draft. I’m also a fan of drafting quarterbacks. Trading back, grabbing a QB at some point and outside play makers for both sides of the ball would make me happy. But that’s in a perfect world, and the NFL Draft is rarely that.'

Marker Bills' brass has met since last week to decide on Taylor's future [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In fact, there was a push for rookie quarterback Cardale Jones to supplant Taylor as the starter for the final three or four games of the season, even though the Bills had yet to be mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

Marker PFF ranks Tyrod Taylor No. 1 available* QB this offseason [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The Bills structured Taylor’s contract in such a way that there is a significant financial incentive not to keep him, because they have to hand him over $25 million in cash if he remains with Buffalo for the 2017 season," Monson wrote. "The deal itself still only averages out at around $16 million per year over the first three seasons of his extension – which Taylor is clearly worth in the current market – but the fact that it’s so heavily weighted in cash terms for this coming season means there’s a decent chance they balk and cut him loose.'

Two, Lee is known to have been a strong advocate for Taylor dating back to the 2015 offseason, when he was signed as a free agent to be part of a three-way competition with EJ Manuel and Matt Cassel for the Bills' starting job. Three, Browns coach Hue Jackson is considered a quarterbacking guru capable of getting the most out of players at the position. Last season, he had another quarterback, Robert Griffin III, who, like Taylor, is known for his mobility.'
