Buffalo Bills News - June 15, 2017

Marker Sammy Watkins looking mighty fine at Bills camp [1:53 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '“All I can say is he looked great,” backup quarterback Cardale Jones said. “I don’t want to compare last year to this year. The reps that he took yesterday and today — he looked good to me.”'

Marker Bills' Dareus makes 1st pitch in bid to put troubles behind [1:52 AM]
AP reports: '"We're just moving on," he said. "We're in McDermott's regime now, and we're going to do his thing. And we're going to make the best out of it."'

Marker Lawson: 'Very comfortable' with the 4-3 defense [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“I’ve always had my hand in the dirt, been an attack type of defensive end, not standing up and dropping back in coverage a lot of times'" Lawson said. "So that’s what I’ve been doing, that’s what got me drafted in the first round. I’m just very comfortable with it because I’ve been doing it all my life.”'

Marker Hyde embracing jack-of-all-trades role with Bills [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'As defensive coordinator for the Carolina Panthers, McDermott often ran wa package referred to as a “big nickel” or, ironically now that’s he’s the Bills head coach, “buffalo nickel." That’s using a hybrid safety/linebacker-type player in the box, close to the line of scrimmage, to line up against bigger tight ends or receivers, but also help in run support. Mcdermott often used linebacker Shaq Thompson in that role with the Panthers. At 6-foot, 197-pounds, Hyde isn’t as big as Thompson (6-2, 231), but he’s better in coverage.'

WKBW-TV reports: 'This is a crucial next few months for second-year quarterback Cardale Jones.

Marker What we learned at Bills minicamp - day two [1:47 AM] reports: 'On a day where the offense had five cracks at a game-winning opportunity during the two-minute drill segment of practice, the defense got stops on four of the five drives.'

Marker Bills Today: McDermott praises Taylor's leadership [1:46 AM] reports: '“When you look at [Tyrod Taylor], certainly this is not a new offense for him because of his familiarity with Rick Dennison from their time together in Baltimore. That said, it’s a new offense because the offense he was in last year was different than what we are asking him to do this year. I’ve really been impressed with the leadership, the intangible qualities that are inherent or must be inherent to that quarterback position,” McDermott said. “I’ve watched [Tyrod Taylor] develop in those areas and that’s important as we look to move forward. There’s leadership qualities at that quarterback position that are important to winning football games and I think he’s done a nice job in that area.”'

Marker What Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott said about pursuing WR Eric Decker [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Well, until that comes through via the league, we can't really discuss that - we're always going to look," said McDermott.

That's the pursuit of winning - that we have to stay hungry."'

"The way he comes in meetings and how he interacts with the other guys and how he passes on his wisdom to the younger players is the type of person you want on your team. He often tells the younger guys to not only be like him but strive to be better. This attitude all transpired after his trip to Haiti."'

Marker Bills being 'smart' with WR Watkins [1:50 AM]

Marker With Gillislee gone and McCoy out, Williams gets shot as top RB in Bills offense [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '“This is something that could happen during the season,” Williams said about his sudden opportunity. “You never know with the running back position, you know how physical it is.

Marker Bills' Crossman continues to lead special teams [1:47 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Crossman is the only coach held over from a pretty bad staff led by the Ryan brothers. He said, “It’s been outstanding so far. You never hope for change. Change is a part of this business, but the group that Sean has established here with this coaching staff. Everybody’s been outstanding to work with, great backgrounds, great history. Lot of different roles a lot these guys have done so it’s really made it enjoyable for me moving forward.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills WR Sammy Watkins takes another step in rehab process [1:45 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'We always have to do things in certain ways so that way we put ourselves into position to succeed, and rehab is no different when you have a player in this situation — and this situation we want to make sure we’ve dotted the ‘Is’ and crossed the ‘Ts’ — and in this case he’s worked, he just hasn’t been here. He’s worked extremely hard in the training room, attacking the rehab process… and these last couple of weeks we’ve been able to get him on the field. A credit to Sammy and our training staff.'

I’ll tell you the guy that’s really stood out has been Andre [Holmes]. He’s done a phenomenal job, not only on offense, but also special teams. Very solid performer day-to-day, consistent and just really – that’s been a nice pickup for us so far and I really appreciate his leadership.”'
