Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'm sorry man but you just don't flippantly accuse people of this," Glazer tweeted. "I think it's complete bulls*** and irresponsible as hell to bring into the equation. When you accuse someone, that label stays with you regardless of truth. Wrong for (McCoy) to go there, don't bring it into the equation. Didn't they replace McCoy with DeMarco Murray? I've known and trained with Murray since college and I'm pretty sure, actually I'm positive, he's black. Lecture over. Unless you're sure about something like that don't publicly label someone as it. You're guilty no matter what and it's wrong."'

You may have an idea who it may end up being, but this is just leading up and getting guys ready for training camp."'

Marker Bills awarded claim for QB Matt Simms [8:11 PM] reports: 'Simms, who was released by the New York Jets on Thursday, now joins a Bills team with the same head coach Simms had played under over the last three years in New York.

Marker Getting Kelly home was a game-changer [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I believe that this overwhelming love for my city and community was shaped out of the deep heartache that my family experienced during the life and death of my brother as well as my dad’s cancer battle. I’ve always loved Western New York, but never as much as I do now. And I’ve never witnessed people come together the way they did when my father battled cancer in 2013 and 2014. These aren’t the type of people who just rally with you during the good times. Rather, they see your need when you’re down for the count, and they pick you up off the ground and hold you up when you can no longer stand on your own.'

Marker Ryan loves Fisher, can't wait to get camp started [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I'm excited," Ryan said as he stood on the field inside Growney Stadium under a sun-filled blue sky. "The facilities are first rate for a training camp.

Marker Will the Buffalo Bills give Marcell Dareus a contract on par with Ndamukong Suh, Gerald McCoy? [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Is Dareus worth that much? He's been a step below those two in terms of production over the last few years, but not by much. The other factor at play is Dareus' history off the field. He'll be serving a one-game suspension for a drug arrest last spring, and that could affect how much guaranteed money the Bills are willing to hand him.'

Marker Chip: Tried to call LeSean, not worried about perceptions [1:53 AM]
Philadelphia Daily News reports: 'Asked if he has spoken with McCoy, Kelly said: "I reached out to him twice and he didn't accept my call. Then I talked to his agent (Drew Rosenhaus) and told him I'd like to talk to (McCoy) at some point in time, but I haven't had a chance to."'

Marker Kelly responds to McCoy's racism charge [1:52 AM]

Marker Eagles' Fletcher Cox: LeSean McCoy's comments about Chip Kelly's race favoritism a &a [1:50 AM]
South Jersey Times reports: '"If you look at the guys we traded; we traded one white guy (Nick Foles) for another white guy (Sam Bradford). We cut Todd (Herremans, who is white). We cut Trent (Cole, who is black). We traded (McCoy) and we replaced him with DeMarco Murray. I think it's all about the players, it's not about black and white. That's how I see it.'''

Marker Chip Kelly on LeSean McCoy's race allegations: 'He's wrong' [1:49 AM]
CSN Philadelphia reports: '"I've got great respect for LeSean,” Kelly said. “However, in that situation, I think he's wrong. We put a lot of time in looking at the characters and factors that go into selection and retention of players, and color's never been one of them."'

Marker Eagles' Kelly says McCoy was wrong to question his motives [1:48 AM]
AP reports: '"That doesn't hurt me," Kelly said of the comments. "I'm not governed by the fear of what other people say. Events don't elicit feelings. I think beliefs elicit feelings, and I understood what my beliefs are and I know who I am."'

Marker Rex Ryan using lessons learned with Jets to shape Bills tenure [1:47 AM] reports: '"I've had six years of experience," he said Wednesday, a few feet away from the field where he held his second OTA session as the newest coach of the Buffalo Bills. "So am I gonna be better now? Of course. You're not gonna be worse by having experience. The other thing is understanding what's important, because the second time, I was lucky -- I got to choose where to go. The thing about that was, go to an organization where you see the direction, and it's the same direction (you believe in)."'

Marker TEs Clay, O'Leary embrace new challenge together [1:46 AM] reports: '“There’s a lot to learn,” admitted Clay. “A lot of little minor detail things. It’s tough and you need to spend time in the books because it’s not something you’ll pick up overnight.”'

Marker Graham takes long range look at safety [1:45 AM] reports: '“We’ve worked him a lot at corner, we’re confident he can jump right back in there,” said Rex Ryan. “He’s going to need a lot of reps at safety. That’s where he’s going to be getting the majority of his work. I’m not saying he won’t go to corner, I’m sure he’ll play some there. We really want him to focus on safety right now.”'

Marker Dan Bylsma has a fan in the Bills football department [1:44 AM] reports: '“If you want it and you have a case for something to make the Sabres a better team, a team that can consistently compete for championships, don’t ever hesitate to ask them,” he said he would tell the new Sabres coach. “They will give you anything and everything you need to get the job done.”'

Marker Bills officially move Graham to safety [1:57 AM]

Marker Erin Kelly discover that crying can help build character [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'As his little girl I was tough too. Tough but shattered – with my tears coming from a kind of heartbreak I had never felt before. Nearly paralyzed, all I could do was sit there and pray, hold his hand, and weep with him. And in that rare, recklessly vulnerable moment, we threw away the playbook, and allowed our unguarded eyes to meet, my father trusting me with his tears and me hanging my broken heart on my sleeve. I’ve never felt closer to my dad, never seen him stronger, and I don’t think either of us have ever been more “Kelly Tough!”'
