Marker Whaley: Trading down ''highly more intriguing'' than moving up for Bills [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“Everybody says defensive line, and it is (deep),” he said. “But we feel like every position, if you are good evaluators you are going to find a guy in any round. Quarterback gets labeled as a deep position, every team is going to be different. But we do think quarterback and D-line, we do think it is good for those this year.”'

Marker As Bills look to address front-7, Whaley emphasizes need for quick LBs [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“In all. Just look at football in all,” the GM explained. "Those old-school MIKE’s (middle LBs) that take on fullbacks and blow up guards, you’re not finding them in college, because colleges don’t don’t that. And it’s getting fewer and fewer teams here in the pros.”'

Marker Deciphering Doug's code: the 2016 draft luncheon [1:44 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Bills can talk about the best player available strategy, which to a certain point in later rounds is a good one to take. However, it’s a lot more complex than just taking the ‘best player on the board’ in the first round, because more often than not, the grades between prospects at different positions are so similar that you start to bring in other, more team and draft specific factors.'

Marker 5 ways the NFL draft can affect the Bills roster [1:43 AM] reports: 'Whaley didn’t rule out a possible trade, but called the draft the “leader in the clubhouse” in how the Bills will add a signal caller. He also reiterated that no matter what quarterback might be drafted that Tyrod Taylor is the team’s starting quarterback in 2016.'

Marker Drafting a QB likely for Bills, but when? [1:42 AM] reports: '“The reason teams move up for the quarterback position and make moves like this, you could call it desperation, is because that’s the only position really that you could make up for several other weaknesses on your roster, if you’re really good there,” said McShay. “With the salary cap where it is now, it’s very, very difficult to build a complete team on both sides of the ball and no position effects more positions and like I said overcome other weaknesses more so than the quarterbacks. You could understand why teams get desperate and do things like this. The odds don’t point in their favor though. We’ll see.'

Marker Incognito despite past, now trusted Bills player [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I found myself looking back on it (Monday) morning,” Incognito said of his 18-month exile from the league stemming from a 2013 bullying scandal with the Miami Dolphins. “I was really excited about getting into the building and being around the guys. Eighteen months ago, I didn’t have that. (For) 18 months, I was sitting on my couch and training on my own and to be back here, where I’m at now, it’s another milestone in this journey and another chapter that begins.'

Marker Vic Carucci's 3 Bills thoughts: Legitimate interest in Lynch? [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And the Bills haven't been shy about showing their love for the 6-foot-7, 244-pound Lynch, taking him to dinner before the Memphis Pro Day, which offensive coordinator Greg Roman and assistant coach Chris Palmer attended. "They appear legitimately interested," a source close to Lynch said Monday night. With a big arm and surprising athleticism for his size, there's a lot to like in this potential future franchise QB.'

Marker Bills release linebacker Tony Steward [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Steward's departure leaves the Bills with only three inside linebackers: returning starter Preston Brown, projected starter and recent free-agent signee Zach Brown, who coach Rex Ryan said is the other starter as of now. The third is Kevin Reddick.'

Marker 7 Buffalo Bills off-season workout takeaways [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We need to forget about anybody’s feelings," Watkins said then. "We need to call people out. If I’m doing something wrong, call me out. If the line is doing something wrong or messing up, call them out. If the defense is doing something wrong, the defensive line, the secondary, call it out. Because at the end of the day, we’re doing it to win, not to get on somebody and make them feel bad. We’re grown men. This is our job. We get paid millions and hundreds of thousands of dollars. Forget the money. You’ve got to go out there each week and play for the guy next to you.'

Marker At rally, Ryan and Trump were great comedic duo [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Of all the people Trump figured would add to his credibility in Buffalo, he chose … Rex Ryan? Trump called Ryan a “great, great football coach” while ignoring a sub-.500 record for his career. If you can’t rile the masses, you might as well humor them. It’s only politics, right?'

Marker Bills safety Aaron Williams says he's healthy, ready to go [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“Looking back I definitely did go back too early,” he admitted. “But at that time I was young and trying to prove something; prove that I’m strong and that nothing can really faze me, but at the end of the day I’ve got to look at my health.”'

Marker Rex Ryan's stumping for Donald Trump troubling [1:53 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But hey, maybe Ryan was inspired listening to Trump on Monday night. Maybe he will get a wall built around Ralph Wilson Stadium to keep Brady, Bill Belichick and the Patriots out.'

Marker Sammy Watkins went to a casino in N.C. while Bills began voluntary workouts [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'If Watkins is serious about being a leader, it's probably best for him to report to One Bills Drive sooner rather than later.'

Marker Buffalo Bills release LB Tony Steward, further depleting depth [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Steward was a sixth-round draft pick of the Bills a year ago. With his release and A.J. Tarpley's retirement, the Bills now have just three inside linebackers on the depth chart. Preston Brown, the newly signed Zach Brown and Kevin Reddick will be tasked with manning the middle of the defense.'

Marker Bills safety Williams bracing for 1st hit after neck surgery [1:50 AM]
AP reports: '"We can do as many strength tests and as many mental tests as we can, but it's all going to come down to when we put the pads on," Williams said, after the Bills opened their offseason voluntary conditioning program on Monday.'

Marker Bills cut Tony Steward, further depleting linebacker depth [1:49 AM]
AP reports: 'A sixth-round pick out of Clemson last year, Steward had difficulty getting any playing time as a rookie. He was used primarily in a special teams role and appeared in just five games before being placed on season-ending injured reserve as a result of a back injury.'

Marker Bills release LB Steward two months after fiancee's death [1:48 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"Wow, life's curveballs are unreal! Haha on to the next.," Steward tweeted. "Extremely grateful to the Bills organization for the opportunity they gave me. Looking forward to the next chapter."'

Marker Fast-rising OT Conklin visits Bills [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Some see Conklin as a guard early-on in the NFL. If the Bills do, they probably wouldn’t invest the nineteenth pick in him. But I think most teams – including the Bills - will view him as a right tackle who may be able to move to the left side as he gets more experience in the league. He played both sides at some point of his college career.'

Marker If Bills have pick of Alabama trio in first round, who fits best? [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'All three show up in the first round of many mocks. And linebacker Reggie Ragland and defensive tackles Jarran Reed and A’Shawn Robinson could help Rex Ryan’s defense, all in different ways.'

Marker Bills release LB Tony Steward [1:45 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Clemson product was hurt in preseason last year and missed the team’s first five games. After playing in the next nine contests, he suffered a knee injury and was placed on injured reserve, missing the final four games of his rookie campaign.'

Marker Entrenched starting QB Tyrod Taylor benefits the Bills [1:44 AM] reports: '“Just having a full year under your belt and establishing myself as a leader on the offense and the team definitely brings more confidence and it brings more responsibility,” said Taylor.'

Marker Bills release LB Tony Steward [1:43 AM] reports: 'The club now has eight linebackers on their offseason roster.'

Marker For Taylor, it’s ‘all in’ for the Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“… The business side of it will handle itself. Whether that gets done or not, that has to handle itself. I’m just here to work and get better as a player.”'

Marker ‘It just feels right’ for Williams to be back in action with Bills [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“It’s been so long since I’ve been with the team,” he said. “Being back here, just working out with the guys, running with the guys, lifting with the guys, just feels right. Feels great.”'

Marker Rex Ryan introduces Donald Trump: 'He'll say what's on his mind' [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Asked if Trump had Ryan's support for the Republican nomination, the coach said, "I'm going to introduce him, that's a true statement. But I'm not going to say who my endorsement is and all that stuff. I will say this, (New Jersey governor) Chris Christie was my guy one hundred percent because we were the lap band of brothers. We both had that lap band and we are really pretty close."'

Marker Corbin Bryant signs RFA tender with the Bills [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“A guy who’s been out there,” Bryant said in February. “A guy who’s seen a lot. A guy who can break down film really well. A guy who knows the different tricks of the trade to figure out what teams are doing. And also, a physical presence out there as well. All the different parts that we have, everybody brings something great to the table and that’s what’s exciting.”'

Marker Bills QB Tyrod Taylor not concerned about contract status [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I can tell you this, our focus specifically with Tyrod is to get him the very best he can possibly be this year,” said Ryan. “There isn’t a person in this organization that doesn’t respect Tyrod Taylor, I can promise you that. Financial things, whatever, everybody’s got it. Whether it’s Tyrod Taylor, this player, that player, there’s always financial things that are very important to that individual specifically, but there’s a balancing act. And what’s best for a franchise may not be what’s best for an individual.”'

Marker Bills coach Rex Ryan introducing Trump at Buffalo rally [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Playing it coy when asked about this, Ryan said, “Well, we'll have to stick around and find out.” But then he came clean and said, “Yeah, it should be interesting. I'm going to introduce him, that's a true statement. But I'm not going to say who my endorsement is and all that stuff. I will say this, (New Jersey governor) Chris Christie was my guy one hundred percent because we were the lap band of brothers. We both had that lap band (surgery) and we’re really pretty close.”'

Marker Sammy Watkins among those absent for start of Buffalo Bills' voluntary workouts [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Wide receiver Sammy Watkins was not on the field while the Bills' went through light conditioning work at One Bills Drive.

Marker Buffalo Bills' QB Tyrod Taylor willing to play 2016 without a new contract [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"I know the contract I signed for last year," Taylor said at the first day of voluntary conditioning Monday. "I understand my contract fully. Like I said, the business side, whether I'm out there playing under contract or an extension, my preparation does not change mentally or physically. I'm here to get this team better, I'm here to better myself and do what I can to help our team compete for a Super Bowl next year."'
