Marker Tyrod Taylor: Wild-card in Bills QB battle [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Taylor is flattered by his new coach mentioning his skill set with Russell Wilson, and also sees similarities in their games. “I have definitely been around him, and I believe that is a compliment. He has played at a high level throughout his professional career. He has been to back-to-back Super Bowls so I take that as a compliment. Hopefully I can do some of those same things. As far as being capable, pulling the ball down and making moves with my feet—I am definitely capable of doing that. Like Russell, I can throw as well.”'

Marker Possible Bills shuffle on the O-Line? [1:56 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Regardless of position, the team must add another player capable of starting to the group. It doesn't matter if he's a guard, a tackle, or heck -- even a center. The important part is to find five offensive linemen that can keep the quarterback upright and make some lanes for running back LeSean McCoy.'

Marker Bills announce dates for 2015 offseason program [1:55 AM] reports: 'Each club may hold a rookie football development program for a period of seven weeks, which in 2015 may begin on May 11.

Marker Ryan is bullish on Bills’ O-line talent [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I feel good that we have two young tackles and I’m excited to see” new offensive line coach “Aaron Kromer work with them,” Ryan said of Henderson and left tackle Cordy Glenn, who is entering his fourth season with the Bills. “Those are two guys that you’d love to see what they’re going to do. They’re pretty darn good right now. Let’s see how far they can go. Both of them have phenomenal ability.”'

Marker Mock draft: Bills ready to call an audible [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'When Buffalo’s first turn to select comes up at No. 50 overall in the second round, there should be a good selection of offensive linemen to choose from. If Whaley stays true to his word, however, the Bills won’t be pigeonholed into taking one, and will instead select the best player remaining on their board.'

Marker Ryan talks a good game, but will wins follow? [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Ryan is a perfect fit for Bills fans, who are always ready to buy the gleeful notion that better times lie just ahead. Ryan’s hiring, coming soon after Terry Pegula bought the team and assured its long-term survival in Buffalo, sent people’s optimism soaring.'

Marker Buffalo would follow other NFL cities in tackling parking challenges [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Places like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Detroit and Cleveland have made downtown stadiums part of their cityscape and game-day experience. Parking challenges sparked creative ideas from new entrepreneurs.'

Marker 2015 NFL Draft: Buffalo Bills visit Florida State, two other pro days Tuesday [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Tight end Nick O'Leary could be on the Bills' radar, but he injured his hamstring in the workout. Buffalo is, however, scheduled to have a second meeting with Florida State running back Karlos Williams, according to CBS in Tallahassee. The Bills drafting a running back would be a bit of a surprise considering the already crowded depth chart.'

Marker Kyle Williams gives back to Ruston High [1:54 AM]
Monroe News Star reports: 'Ruston coach Brad Laird said helmets, shoulder pads and practice dummies were bought with the donation.'

Marker What if the Bills still had the 19th pick? [1:53 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'After trading for Matt Cassel, signing Tyrod Taylor, still having EJ Manuel in the fold, and knowing they wouldn’t get either Jameis Winston or Marcus Mariota at #19, QB would be out of the question with that selection. The consensus next few quarterbacks on the board, in no particular order, are Garrett Grayson (Colorado State), Bryce Petty (Baylor), and Brett Hundley (UCLA). None of which are worthy of first-round selections.'

Marker Bills roster drawing national attention [1:52 AM] reports: 'In a discussion on “NFL AM” Wednesday morning on the NFL Network, both former NFL CB Eric Davis and RB Terrell Davis agreed the Bills have the most talented roster in the AFC East.'

Marker Ryan, Whaley driven by ‘one goal’ [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“There’s no hidden agendas or anything else,” Ryan said during the recent NFL meeting in Phoenix. “This is who we are, this is what we want, and there isn’t anybody in this organization that doesn’t want anything other than building a championship team.”'

March 31, 2015

Marker Next goal for Bills: sign Dareus [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The team is expected to do an extension that would provide a hefty payout of guaranteed money to Dareus, but would also allow the Bills to amortize those dollars to fit under their salary cap. The Bills reportedly are $5.28 million under the cap.'

Marker NFL Hall of Famer Jim Kelly inspires at YMCA breakfast [1:58 AM]
South Florida Sun Sentinel reports: 'True to the breakfast theme, he urged the audience to keep a smile on their face when they're visiting someone like him in a hospital room. "The worst thing they can do is walk in with a frown," he said, adding "I feel pretty good."'

Marker Can the Bills keep Dareus? At what price? [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The one area the Bills may have concern about signing Dareus to a mega-deal is his off-field issues that have come up. If they’re going to invest that type of money in him, it’s imperative they feel comfortable his troubles are behind him. Dareus was suspended twice by former head coach Doug Marrone for repeated tardiness at the end of 2013. Then, last offseason he was arrested twice. The case of the second arrest (related to street racing) is still pending in Hamburg.'

Marker Bills' fans buy into off-season moves, trades [6:14 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'What happens on the field will ultimately assess the wisdom of hiring Rex Ryan, trading for LeSean McCoy, retaining Jerry Hughes and the free agent signings of Charles Clay, Percy Harvin, Jerome Felton and Richie Incognito. But what’s certain is, those moves clearly inspired season ticket sales.'

Marker Rex's buzz, Bills opponents offer plenty of schedule speculation [1:59 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'I’ll stick with what I just wrote and say they have, in my estimation, a 25% chance of opening at New England. If the Pats draw an opponent other than the Bills or Jets (like Pittsburgh), I think Rex Ryan facing his old Jets team is definitely up there on the possibility list. It could even be one of the two Monday Night games opening weekend.'

Marker Fan excitement evident in Bills season ticket spike [1:58 AM] reports: '“Obviously with where we are right now at better than 52-thousand the franchise record is certainly within our sights,” said team President Russ Brandon. “There is a lot of work left to be done. We certainly have points coming up here with the draft, players coming back for OTAs and minicamps and the schedule release, which will be factors when fans consider their choices. We obviously have a great bundle of benefits that come with purchasing season tickets, starting with price and value so we’re certainly going to take a run at it.”'

Marker Bills have few openings [12:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I think we invigorated the offense,” General Manager Doug Whaley said. “We’ve set it up where we can go anywhere in the draft just about and be happy with who we get. Because, if you look at it, in the second and third round, those guys are going to contribute, but besides guard, there’s not too many starting positions open.'

Marker Back to being a hot ticket [12:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With more than four months of selling to go, they have a realistic shot at beating the franchise record of 57,132 set in 1992, the third season of the Bills’ four-year Super Bowl run.'

Marker Bills alums team with sheriffs association for cancer awareness [12:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Ed Rutkowski, a former Bill and Erie County executive, is president of the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation. The group was founded in 1999 and includes past Bills players who have left an imprint on society during their football careers and want to continue to help their community.'

Marker Don't let suspended blackout rule see light of day [12:56 AM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'While the goal was more people in the seats, the NFL’s blackout rule did a lot more harm than good in recent years. Loyal fans, many of whom went to games each fall, were shut out, while the Bills’ lack of TV time hindered the team’s quest for regional expansion, especially in places like central New York. It’s hard to promote a team that fans can’t see play each Sunday. Only the Bills Radio Network benefited.'

Marker 10 ways free agency made the Bills schedule more interesting [12:55 AM] reports: 'The outpouring of emotion from Philadelphia fans when LeSean McCoy was traded to Buffalo shows how the talented running back was valued in the “City of Brotherly Love.” McCoy will lead his new team to Lincoln Financial Field for just the second time in Bills franchise history. The Bills lost in their only other regular season appearance at “the Linc” in the season finale in 2007.'

Marker Bills’ moves have effect on others [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'However, the coach who might very well be the happiest with the recent acquisition of a former Bill is Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints. Payton couldn’t say enough good things about running back C.J. Spiller, whom the Saints signed as a free agent.'

Marker League won’t stand pat on point-after [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The issue is figuring out another way to attempt an extra point or go for a two-point conversion besides the one that has been in place for many years: lining up at the 2-yard line.'

Marker What a year for the Bills since the passing of Ralph Wilson [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'A roll call: Rex Ryan hired as coach, Jerry Hughes re-signed, LeSean McCoy and Matt Cassel acquired in trades, Richie Incognito, Jerome Felton, and Charles Clay brought aboard via free agency, ticket sales pacing at a near record level, widespread praise for the stadium renovation, and the franchise not only thriving under the new ownership of Terry and Kim Pegula, but safely secure right where it belongs, possibly for generations to come.'

Marker Good riddance, hopefully, to NFL blackouts on TV [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'It's not right that people who pay cable and satellite TV fees should be denied the local NFL game, because everybody is paying for it one way or the other. Yes, the NFL is the only sports league that offers its games over free network TV. But again, who still watches three channels with rabbit ears?'
