Marker 4 - Can McCoy reach 2,000 total yards? [1:36 AM] reports: '“He’s a playmaker,” said fellow back Jonathan Williams. “He’s not just a running back. He can run the ball between the tackles.

Marker Bills Today: Beane and McDermott plan steady dialogue with Pegulas [1:36 AM] reports: '“We’ll set something up during the season that I think Sean and I talked about a little bit depending on what they’ve got going on and where they’re at,” said Beane. “If they haven’t been in town for the week, we’ll set up a call to talk about how the week went and a little about the opponent and what to expect in the game based on who we have available injury-wise and what’s going on versus them. Anything that could be changing roster-wise (will also be communicated), but Terry and Kim are better than I realized the day I signed up. That’s the God’s honest truth.'

Marker Training camp countdown: 4. What will Sean McDermott do about Adolphus Washington? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After preaching the importance of character since he was hired in January, how McDermott handles the situation with Washington will be closely scrutinized. Will the Bills simply let the legal process play out? Or will they try to make an example out of Washington, knowing that the second-year defensive tackle is a replaceable player?'

Marker Bills' Tyrod Taylor finds himself having to prove he's a franchise QB [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I feel like at my position, you have to prove it every year,” he said. “Contract or no contract, that’s my mindset.

Marker Bills' camp battles: five starting spots with the most competition [1:57 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'In a perfect world, rookie Zay Jones wins this job and the coaching staff knows they have a solid wideout for the next several years. But it's not a perfect world and there is certainly competition for the spot opposite Sammy Watkins.'

Marker How losing Brandon Beane may have played a role in the Panthers firing GM Dave Gettleman [1:56 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'According to the Observer, Beane, known to have a personality that allowed him to talk to and get along with players, coaches, and front office personnel, was a nice buffer between them and the blunt and less personable Gettleman.'

Marker 5 - Who will be the No. 2 wide receiver? [1:55 AM] reports: 'Arguably the most turnover on the Bills roster this offseason occurred in the wide receiver corps. The departure of Robert Woods, Marquise Goodwin and Justin Hunter left a serious hole in the Bills depth at the position. To remedy this turnover, the Bills brought in both veteran and rookie wide receivers. With many new faces, and plenty of roles to be had, the battle at wide receiver should be one of the best at training camp. With starting positions up for grabs, here are the three most likely players to factor into the battle for number two wide receiver.'

Marker Pollock: O.J.’s disastrous life continues as a free man [12:33 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Simpson was legally entitled to parole based on the reason for his being jailed in Nevada, so I wasn’t particularly bothered – indeed expected – that he would get it. My ire is reserved for the jury that got it wrong 22 years ago.'

Marker Training camp countdown: 5. Will Sammy Watkins be ready to go? [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Credit to Sammy, credit to our training staff and the way he’s attacked the rehab with them," coach Sean McDermott said at that time, according to the Bills' official website. "That has to continue, though. This is one step in that process of getting Sammy back to where he needs to be and where we need him to be."'

Marker Rick Dennison back to where it all started with Bills [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Through the years, Dennison would be involved in plenty of games, as a player and coach, at the stadium his current team calls home. “Some unfortunate ones and some good ones,” he said. But none would overshadow that first summer in Western New York, brief as it might have been.'

Marker New Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane took an early career risk that paid off [1:57 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills training camp capsule [1:54 AM]
AP reports: 'Too many changes to coaching staff and roster to expect McDermott building immediate contender and ending playoff drought in first year.

QB Taylor running out of chances to establish himself as long-term starter entering third year, and only after agreeing to pay cut by restructuring contract in March.'

Marker Thurman Thomas: "The most confident I've felt in a head coach" [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"Obviously that doesn't translate into win-loss records but I can tell you it'll be a more disciplined football team out there. They're going to play hard every single week. I know guys say that all the time but it just has a different feel with this guy and who the coach is and everybody that he's brought in."'

Marker 6 - Will Sammy Watkins have a career year? [1:52 AM] reports: '“Credit to Sammy, credit to our training staff and the way he’s attacked the rehab with them. That has to continue, though. This is one step in that process of getting Sammy back to where he needs to be and where we need him to be,” said head coach Sean McDermott.'

Marker Report: Bills to host WR Anquan Boldin on free-agent visit [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Boldin, 36, had 67 catches for 584 yards and eight touchdowns last season for Detroit. He ranks 14th in NFL history with 13,779 receiving yards and won the 2015 Walter Payton Man of the Year award for his work off the field. A 14-year veteran, he's a three-time Pro Bowler.

Marker Jay Skurski's Bills Mailbag: LeSean McCoy on his way to the Hall? The future at Fisher & a [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'McCoy has three years left on his contract (including 2017), with cap hits ranging from $8.875 million to just a shade over $9 million. The Bills can get out of the deal after this season for minimal damage on the salary cap in terms of dead money. Will the team's new front office want to pay that much money for a running back in his 30s? That's something we'll have to find out.'

Marker Ch. 2's Jonah Javad responds to criticism of his Gilmore piece [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Finally, I wouldn't have had as much a problem with Javad's initial story if he had noted most of the things he said in his Wednesday follow-up.'

Marker Buffalo Bills: Six positional battles to watch at training camp [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Let’s assume Sammy Watkins will be healthy. I know, that’s a bit of a leap. The other starter, and even the No. 3 position, are wide, wide open. Rookie Zay Jones will likely get the first crack, and if his college career means anything, he should be able to lock it down. Then, you’re looking at a hodgepodge of mediocrity led by Andre Holmes, Philly Brown, Jeremy Butler, Dezmin Lewis, Rod Streater, and Walter Powell. Yikes. Perhaps fewest drops wins?'

Marker Buffalo Bills to host WR Anquan Boldin on free-agent visit (report) [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Earlier this offseason, the Bills hosted free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin but Maclin ended up signing with the Ravens.

Marker Buffalo Bills linebacker Reggie Ragland reveals weight clause in contract [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'It's unknown why Ragland would have a weight clause in his contract.
