Buffalo Bills News - June 9, 2015

Marker Andre Reed Way, park to be dedicated this month [1:57 AM]
Allentown Morning Call reports: 'Allentown City Council voted last year to rename the street and park in honor of the former Buffalo Bills receiver who played locally for Dieruff and Kutztown University. Reed retired after the 2000 season and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August 2014.'

Marker Watkins can't wait to get started [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“We can stretch the field. We have a lot of fast guys out there,” Watkins told reporters recently. “You have (Charles) Clay now. You have (Robert) Woods. You have me and Marquise (Goodwin). You have (Chris) Hogan so it’s so many guys that you have to pay attention to. Not just one guy. You can have me and (Percy Harvin) on the same side and create a matchup so I can’t wait to get started with these guys.”'

Marker Greg Roman's Power Sweep [1:55 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Here, I break down how he used these in the 49ers week one game at Dallas last season, using two different formations after seeing how the first was blocked.'

Marker Bills Positional Briefs: Offensive Line [1:54 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'G John Miller - The rookie has done everything right since being drafted by the Bills in the third round. Miller has the intelligence for the position, and both the size and strength that the Bills covet for their guard positions. Even though he is just a first-year player, he'll be viewed as a favorite to start when the Bills get to St. John Fisher College.'

Marker New 'D' could make Lawson biggest beneficiary [1:53 AM] reports: '“I think two years ago I was playing multiple positions and had multiple roles and so you really couldn’t focus on exactly where 91 was and you didn’t know if I was rushing or I was dropping,” said Lawson. “Last year I had someone on me all the time. With a different scheme and different roles opportunities present themselves.”'

Marker Seeking a law so Jills can get a basic right [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Cheerleader pay can seem a trivial issue when fast-food workers are fighting for pay they can live on and nail salon workers are exploited with unsafe conditions. They shouldn’t need their own law to ensure worker rights already written into existing labor law. It’s even sadder that this issue has been around for years.'

Marker New 'D' could make Lawson biggest beneficiary [1:58 AM] reports: '“I think two years ago I was playing multiple positions and had multiple roles and so you really couldn’t focus on exactly where 91 was and you didn’t know if I was rushing or I was dropping,” said Lawson. “Last year I had someone on me all the time. With a different scheme and different roles opportunities present themselves.”'

Marker Bills’ Hogan welcomes new challenge [1:47 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I don’t short-change his athletic talent or speed or any of that,” Lal said. “We have all these competitions when they do weight-lifting and Hogan always seems to be top three, if not one. He’s one of the best athletes on the team, so I think he gets short-changed perception-wise that way.'

Marker As usual, it comes down to the quarterback [1:46 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And if the Bills’ season comes remotely close to the optimistic projections of Ryan and others, there won’t be a high enough draft pick to maybe find one that way, either.'

Marker 7 takeaways from conversations with Buffalo Bills' assistant coaches [1:45 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'It only takes a few minutes to realize how fired up tight ends coach Tony Sparano is about the players he's working with. In addition to newly signed Charles Clay, rookie Nick O'Leary and MarQueis Gray have been quick to pick up the offense. The Bills want their tight ends to be able to move around the offensive formation, and Sparano feels like every one of his tight ends is capable of doing it.'

Marker McCoy way off base on Eagles coach [1:44 AM]
Bucks County Courier Times reports: 'So clearly he is lashing out, sort of the way a child would when he doesn’t get his way. Instead of facing the music, McCoy has taken the child’s way out. The questions won’t stop, though, because of one angry media session in Buffalo.'

Marker New park brings crowds, ex-Bills star Andre Reed [1:43 AM]
Albany Times Union reports: 'The former Bills star explained he got his start in parks. "I wouldn't have become a Hall of Fame football player or even a football player if I didn't have those kind of (positive) people behind me," Reed, who grew up in Allentown, Pa., told the crowd. "Just to see this, I can see what this nation is all about. It's about coming together and doing the right thing. There are so many different things that are bad. This is something good that can turn into something great, so thanks for having me."'

Marker Al Bemiller at home in Buffalo and its' Sports Hall of Fame [1:42 AM] reports: 'When asked why he stayed in the Buffalo area after his football career ended in 1970, Bemiller had a quick reply. “The one main thing was the great people here. I met up with some great people,” he said. “Another thing, we didn’t make enough money to move.”'

Marker QB play will determine fate of offense [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'From what I’ve seen so far in OTA practices, the Bills don’t have a true difference-maker at quarterback and aren’t likely to have one emerge between now and the start of the season. EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor – the three vying for the starting job – have had, at best, decent stretches. But there have been too many times when their throws have been off target or they have simply been unable to find open receivers.'

Marker QB salaries put new spin on ‘hike!’ [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Before long, we could see quarterbacks making more money in a season than Kelly made in his career. It’s mind-boggling. Times have changed, indeed.'

Marker Take a guess at what else is for sale [1:57 AM]
Niagara Gazette reports: 'So the National Football League will salute the troops if they are paid enough to do so. I have come to assume not a step is taken in professional football unless money is somewhere being exchanged; a single attendance at a game confirms it. Will they go green, become an ecologically pure sport, if enough dough is thrown at them? Would they become the anti-war sport if a collection was taken for that cause?'

Marker New beginnings for Urbik in 2015 [1:56 AM] reports: '“He handled it like a pro should handle it,” said Glenn. “He did everything he was asked to do, and always tried to help out his teammates. He continued to do all the little things such as extra film study, staying after practice, things like that. I actually took notice of what he was doing and tried to implement it into my game.”'

Marker Why you should be excited for the 2015 Buffalo Bills [1:55 AM] reports: 'Excitement for the Bills regular season has reached heights that have not been seen in a long time. From the hiring of Rex Ryan to the trade for LeSean McCoy and the re-signing of Jerry Hughes, Bills fans have a lot to look forward to come September.'

Marker Jackson carries on for Bills in reserve role [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Now, his mainstay days are behind him. The marquee role in the backfield belongs to McCoy, who, after having his contract reworked by the Bills, is receiving $16 million. That’s the sort of financial commitment, along with the rest of the heavy spending the team has done in the offseason, that helps raise expectations on multiple levels. The Bills are expected to make the playoffs, something coach Rex Ryan is on record as saying. And McCoy should be expected to lead the league in rushing, or least be very near the top of that category.'

Marker Bills could resemble ’99 group [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Anyway, the parallels to 1999 are apt. That team rode a great defense – quite possibly the best in Bills history – and conservative, power running game to an 11-5 record and a wild-card berth. They won despite the fact that Flutie was in decline and unable to throw effectively down the field anymore.'

Marker QB Matt Simms looking for an opportunity in Buffalo [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"How I felt with the situation with the Jets is different than how I feel about the situation with the Bills," Simms said the other day. "I feel like here I'll have more opportunity to get more experience and get more reps on the field and to give myself a fair shot to succeed. Whereas I didn't feel I got that same respect there from the Jets the past couple months."'

Marker Full information for Buffalo Bills' joint training camp practices with Cleveland Browns [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"Joint practices give you more of a chance to evaluate players and do different things," Rex Ryan said in a statement. "It peaks the competition. We want these two days to be productive and we are excited to work against the Browns."'

Marker How Buffalo Bills WR coach Sanjay Lal is teaching Sammy Watkins the art of route running [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I don't think you can quantify a receiver's worth by yards," Lal said. "That's system-based, or I've seen a lot of teams that are behind the whole year so there's a lot of yards. He has a lot of room to grow and he can be one of the best route runners, because physically there's not really anything Sammy Watkins can't do."'

Marker Marcell Dareus back at Buffalo Bills' OTAs; Percy Harvin expected back next week [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'The Bills have had strong attendance thus far in OTAs. Guard Chris Williams is the only player who hasn't reported, and head coach Rex Ryan said he still hasn't heard from him. Meanwhile, a handful of Bills have been limited participants because of injuries, including safety Aaron Williams, tight end Chris Gragg and wide receiver Sammy Watkins, among others.'

Marker Bovada sets over/under on Buffalo Bills' 2015 win total at 8.5 [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Bovada recently set the initial over/under on the Bills' win total for the 2015 season, and it sits at 8.5. Those who think the Bills will surpass that total and have a winning season will get -130 odds, while the Bills going under that win total is at even money right now.'

Marker Bills to host Browns for 2 training camp practices [1:52 AM]
AP reports: 'Last year, the Bills held joint practice with Pittsburgh at the Steelers' training camp site.'

Marker Predictably, Ryan high on Bills [1:51 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Ryan said "when it's all said and done, we'll be fine" at quarterback. He said the situation is not ideal, and there is not one quarterback well ahead of the competition at this stage in the offseason.'

Marker Watkins on the mend from surgery [1:50 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I am not there every day with the guys running routes. So mentally I've got to watch the defense and the coverages, watch how things move, because I am going to be coming back soon and everything is going to be fast and I have to pick it up."'

Marker The Bills could be Rex Ryan's best team yet -- just ask him [1:49 AM]
ESPN reports: '"We're not tiptoeing into anything," Ryan said. "We expect to be good. We expect to win this year. We're not afraid to say it."'

Marker Roman: Kouandjio's arrow keeps pointing up [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'If Kouandjio’s arrow continues to point upward, and his play lands him in the starting lineup, that means one of last season’s two starters will be forced out and into a reserve role. For now, it appears the coaching staff does not want to move Glenn inside to guard as had been previously speculated, partly because head coach Rex Ryan said he’s “ecstatic” how rookie John Miller has played there so far. Richie Incognito is holding down the other guard spot.'
