Marker Bills receiver Watkins intent to stay healthy this season [1:28 AM]

Marker Bills' Washington has learned from mistake after gun charge [1:27 AM]

Marker Bills take careful approach with Watkins, Glenn [1:26 AM]

Marker Watkins gets healthy dose of reps as Bills open camp [1:25 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Head coach Sean McDermott certainly has his defense thinking “takeaway” every play. Defenders’ hands were constantly slapping or punching at the football until the very end of every play. Of course, with no tackling allowed yet, it’s easier to do that and not worry about missing a tackle. But it’s noteworthy considering he’s made mention plenty of times this offseason about being a team that needs to be aggressive and take away the football.'

Marker Sammy Watkins on contract situation: "I've got to earn it" [1:24 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I haven’t even put in thought about it,” he said. “My job is to go out there and try to catch as many touchdowns and balls and help this team win. Everything else will play out and I have got to earn it.'

Marker McDermott: 'It's only going to get more and more intense' [1:23 AM]

"Again, this isn't my first year in the NFL... I've got a great staff around me, and we're going to work well together and I'm going to be banking on them for things, they're counting on me and I've got a great group of players to work with, so they make my job a lot easier."'

Marker Beane - This is real, I'm super fired up [1:22 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'While Beane is excited, he does realize that improving this team will not happen overnight, "I'm fired up to be in this position, I'm fired up about what we've done. Sean (McDermott) has done a great job even before I got here getting the culture going. It's not an overnight thing, we're not there, we're doing it day by day, practice by practice. But I'm excited to watch us grow. Really, the journey it has started, but the real football starts now... hopefully we see, day by day, incremental growth as an offense, as a defense, as special teams and as a collaborative team."'

Marker Bills' Washington speaks for first time since arrest [1:21 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '“I’ve learned from my mistakes and I’m going to keep trying my best to keep doing the right thing,” he said. “Probably just the environment I go in and whatever. I’m young, I’ll make mistakes, I’ve just got to learn from them.”'

Marker Joe B: 7 Buffalo Bills training camp observations, Day 1 (8/27/17) [1:20 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Watkins believes his foot injury is a thing of the past and exclaimed after practice that he doesn’t want to hear about it any longer. Along with him, both Andre Holmes and Zay Jones also took reps with the first-team, which sets up for a competition between the veteran and rookie as we go forward into training camp.'

Marker Top 3 things to know from Day 1 at Bills camp [1:18 AM] reports: '“I think it’s all been good,” said Peterman following his first training camp practice. “I have great teammates here – TJ (Yates) and Tyrod (Taylor) have all been so helpful to me. The speed of the game is definitely faster, but I think with all the work I did in OTA’s and coming out here (Thursday), I’m getting used to it and just got to keep working.”'

Marker Sammy Watkins reps will be managed [1:17 AM] reports: '“We’ve put together a rep count that will build up and at times come down a little bit just based off of the plan from the outset,” said McDermott. “But we’ve got to be flexible with that and see how he feels and that starts tonight.”'

Marker Sean McDermott: Naturally wired to succeed [1:16 AM] reports: '“I think if you look at the type of person that Sean is, the thing that stands out in my head the most is his determination,” Tim said. “He’s got a way of pushing beyond what most people can mentally or physically handle. Whether I saw that in football, in wrestling, in working out. At the point where most people would say I can’t, he had this amazing ability to push through a pain threshold that is incredibly high.”'

Marker 1 - Will the postseason be reached? [1:15 AM] reports: '“When you look at it there are a lot of teams that have been through that,” said McDermott of playoff droughts. “The number of turnarounds that are out there.

Marker Bills Today: Rambo ready to roll [1:14 AM] reports: '“It’s really where I felt most comfortable,” said Rambo of Buffalo in an appearance on the John Murphy Show. “It was a great group of guys, great fan base, great organization. That’s where I felt the most at home. So I’m glad to be back and I’m ready to get to work.”'

Marker Pollock: Position battles to watch at Bills training camp [8:38 AM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Brown, in his three seasons, has been decent but not shown the leadership expected from his position. Ragland, though highly coveted, hasn’t played an NFL down and is an uncertainty coming off a major injury.'

Marker Bills trade Cardale Jones to Chargers for conditional draft pick [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'On Twitter, Jones thanked the Bills and their fans "for showing me nothing but love and support" during his brief time with the team.'

Marker Bills designate Colt Anderson as active/PUP [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In 2016, Anderson signed a one-year contract with the Bills as a reserve safety and special-teams contributor. His season ended on Oct. 10, when he was placed on the injured-reserve list with a hand injury.'

Marker Training camp countdown: 1. Will Tyrod Taylor prove he is a franchise quarterback? [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Right fit or not fit, he’s a good player,” Dennison said. “He throws the ball well and he’s athletic so he can do some of the stuff that we want to do when we move him out of the pocket. But I’ve had quarterbacks that aren’t as gifted that can still get that done because they have to defend the run, and obviously with the guys we have up front and LeSean McCoy, I think we can run the ball pretty dog-gone good. They will have to defend a lot of the field.”'

Marker Internship with Super Bowl-era Bills launched coaching career of Juan Castillo [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In 1992, Castillo was a 32-year-old minority intern coach for the Bills when Bresnahan was their offensive coordinator/offensive line coach.

Marker Rex Ryan thinks the Bills could make playoffs, despite what experts say [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Yeah, it probably is not as raw," said Ryan, laughing when reminded of some of his comments. "I was still bleeding at the time. It was still very raw to me. As a competitor, I wanted to succeed. I don't have any regrets. The Pegulas are awesome. But Terry made a decision to go a different way and he has that right, he is the owner of the team. But believe me, I think the world of Terry Pegula and Kim. I didn't agree with it. I thought the team was close. It is what it is. I feel privileged to have the two years I spent in Buffalo and definitely was privileged to spend six years with the (New York) Jets as head coach."'

Marker Buffalo Bills trade quarterback Cardale Jones to the L.A. Chargers [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The Bills selected Jones out of Ohio State in the fourth round of the 2016 draft. He saw no action in the regular season until late in the third quarter of the season finale against the Jets. That was the game in which Tyrod Taylor was held out for business purposes to make sure he didn’t get hurt, and EJ Manuel got the start. Manuel played so terribly that Lynn, who was the head coach for that one game, inserted Jones.'

Marker Training camp is here, the Bills are hopeful, but is anything really different? [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'We’ve heard this saying around these parts a million times: No one sells hope like the Buffalo Bills, and they’re doing it again in 2017. The past is the past, and if you ask anyone on the OneBuffalo payroll, they’ll tell you Sean McDermott is exactly the kind of coach this franchise has needed for so long.'

Marker McDermott's 'training camp lite' not a good sign for Bills staying in Rochester [1:52 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Call me paranoid, but the Bills have scheduled two events at New Era Field in Orchard Park this training camp, a night practice at the stadium on Aug. 4 and a practice at their field house on Aug. 11. If it floats like a trial balloon and looks like a trial balloon, it’s a trial balloon.'

Marker Buffalo Bills trade QB Cardale Jones to Chargers for conditional pick [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It's hard, you know, without seeing a guy in a game," Lynn said. "But you watch him in practice. You watch him in individual drills. You watch his footwork and his arm strength. He's what you want waiting on the runway."'

Marker 3 thoughts and a grade for Buffalo Bills trading QB Cardale Jones [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'McDermott and Beane weren't tied to Jones, but they are invested in Peterman, who is viewed as a better fit for Rick Dennison's west-coast offense. Jones was a distant fourth on the team's depth chart during the team, so it makes sense to move on from him if he wasn't in the long-term plans. The Bills will now have a chance to give Peterman more meaningful reps in camp.'

Marker 5 reasons the Buffalo Bills traded QB Cardale Jones to the Los Angeles Chargers [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Simply put, Cardale Jones was a Doug Whaley and Rex Ryan pick. The quarterback had no ties to Buffalo's new GM and head coach combination and the writing was on the wall for Jones as soon as the Bills drafted Nathan Peterman. Peterman's selection came shortly after the team added T.J. Yates, a veteran with knowledge of Rick Dennison's offense.'

Marker 9 Buffalo Bills training camp battles to watch at St. John Fisher College [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Head coach Sean McDermott didn't rule out a competition at right guard according to WKBW-TV's Joe Buscaglia, but this is a battle that heavily favors Miller. The guard was Pro Football Focus' most-improved second-year guard in 2016 and one of the major reasons that Ducasse was running with the first team offense at OTAs was due to Miller dealing with an injury. If healthy, Miller could end this battle quickly.'

Marker Buffalo Bills' Tre White has fourth-highest Madden 18 rating among defensive rookies [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Despite being selected 27th overall, White fared better than the four cornerbacks selected ahead of him in the draft. Here's a look at how Madden rated every cornerback selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL draft.'
