Marker Buffalo Bills match Rams' offer sheet to OL Ryan Groy (report) [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The price isn't crazy for Groy, who filled in admirably for the Bills at center after Eric Wood broke his leg. Groy started seven games and proved to be a solid option. With Wood entering the final year of his contract, and guard Richie Incognito getting older, depth is crucial for the Bills on the interior of the offensive line. With Groy and the signing of Vlad Ducasse, the Bills have plenty of depth on the offensive line, although right tackle is still a weakness.'

Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Well last year I learned that you have to be the same," Davis said. "You have to have the same mindset and recommit every week. If you're on a winning streak, you've got to approach Wednesday's practice the same. You lost a game, you got to approach Wednesday's practice the same. You got to go out there and compete with everything that you do.''

Marker Buffalo Bills hosting Temple CB Nate Hairston on pre-draft visit (report) [1:50 AM]

Marker Ex-Oregon State S Jordan Poyer sees 'great opportunity' after signing with Buffalo Bills [1:48 AM]
Portland Oregonian reports: 'Enduring a season like he did in Cleveland requires perseverance, toughness and builds character. Those are all good personality traits to have, but Poyer needed a change of scenery. "Coming out here, it's a new opportunity.

ESPN reports: 'The Bills believed Manuel could be their franchise quarterback when they selected him 16th overall in 2013, making the Florida State product the first quarterback chosen in what became a lackluster draft class at the position. No quarterback drafted in 2013 remained a full-time starter by 2016.'

Marker Bills are auctioning off locker room pool table after their new coach removed it [1:45 AM]

In his two years as a CB, Hairston totaled 38 tackles and 2 interceptions. As a wideout his first two seasons, Hairston caught 20 passes for 150 yards.'

Marker Pool table from Bills locker room up for auction [1:42 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The ad says the table has some wear and tear and the legs are detached while it is being stored. It may have a few dings, but the money is worth it - a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Buffalo Bills Foundation.'

Marker Hansen finds life balance, but still close to the game [1:41 AM] reports: '“I got asked to coach football and I’ve been through 22 years of organized football and it was just more than I wanted to do to be a coach,” Hansen said. “It takes time to be good at it, and my family was young at the time and I decided not to. Officiating was just a way that I could kind of stay involved. You don’t have to worry about injured kids or who you’re going to play, you just get the best part which is the game.”'

Marker Bills Today: Hokies get to tour One Bills Drive [1:40 AM] reports: '“Comfort is the main thing for me. You can’t really find that anywhere,” said Butler. “Just familiarity and previous relationships with Rick Dennison the offensive coordinator, (offensive line coach) Juan Castillo and especially Tyrod. He actually threw me my first preseason touchdown in Baltimore my rookie year. So that chemistry and relationship I think will give me a great chance to compete. I’m thankful for the opportunity.”'

Marker Free agent WR Andre Holmes disputes report that he signed with Buffalo Bills [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'At 6-feet-5-inches tall, Holmes is a definite red-zone threat. The Bills lost Justin Hunter, who signed with the Steelers on Wednesday, and Holmes has a similar skill set. While he wouldn't be an imposing threat opposite No. 1 wide receiver Sammy Watkins, Holmes definitely has enough talent to contribute if the Bills went down that route.'

Marker Buffalo Bills free agent LB Zach Brown visiting the Oakland Raiders (report) [1:51 AM]

Marker Todd McShay 2017 NFL Mock Draft has Buffalo Bills selecting WR Corey Davis [1:50 AM]

After losing Robert Woods and Marquise Goodwin in fre agency, the Bills' wide receiver depth chart consists of Philly Davis, Kolby Listenbee, Dez Lewis, Walt Powell and Jeremy Butler. If either Davis or Clemson wide receiver Mike Williams are on the board, the Bills will have a hard time passing on that type of talent.'
