Marker McDermott's 'training camp lite' not a good sign for Bills staying in Rochester [1:52 AM]

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]

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.'

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.'

WKBW-TV reports: 'The most glaring, yet obvious fact about Cardale Jones and this move, was that the current regime -- head coach Sean McDermott and general manager Brandon Beane -- simply had no ties to Jones whatsoever.

Beane highlighted Taylor’s work ethic and showed a willingness to see how Taylor performs in camp and during the 2017 season. However, as we have grown accustomed to with the quarterback and this regime, there were no promises given to anything past this year — and that isn’t likely to change unless Taylor shows a heap of progress this season.
