Buffalo Bills News - May 21, 2016

Marker Bills Today - Predicting the Bills 2016 starters [1:55 AM] reports: '“I don’t think you want Darby and Gilmore switching sides of the field because they were so good in their respective positions. They feel Gilmore is Revis caliber because they got lucky and found another good corner. Or they scouted him and got another really good corner.”'

Marker Bills at WR: Caution the word with Watkins [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'With Sammy Watkins recovering from his second offseason surgery since joining the Bills as the fourth overall pick in 2014, it's fair to wonder whether there might be more than a little regret at One Bills Drive over not targeting a receiver somewhere in the first few rounds.'

Marker Fans short on trust for Bills’ brass [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I can’t speak for everyone, but it’s clear from my email and Twitter that fans are very upset with them about the Lawson injury. Either they lied about it on draft night (which I believe) or they allowed their own doctors to tell them what they wanted to hear.'

Marker Bills to open training camp July 30 [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Monday, Aug. 22 session is slated to be the last of training camp.'

Marker Return concern, Glenn's incentive & another vote for EJ [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'What is known is that the Bills placed Archer on their reserve/did not report list Wednesday, eight days after claiming him off waivers from the New York Jets. Attendance isn't mandatory at the Bills' offseason conditioning program. However, the exceptionally fast running back, whom the Pittsburgh Steelers made a third-round draft pick from Kent State in 2014, apparently missed a required physical examination and also indicated that he wasn't planning to show up.'

Marker Buffalo Bills bringing in free agent WR Andre Roberts for visit [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'With Watkins undergoing foot surgery a few weeks ago, the Bills need all the insurance they can get at wide receiver. Roberts won't necessarily be easy to reel in given the interest in him.'

Marker Buffalo Bills training camp schedule 2016: Dates, location, ticket information [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The team will have a total of 16 practices in Pittsford, including five night practices which will require a ticket for entry. All practices are free for fans to attend. This will be the 17th consecutive year the Bills hold training camp at St. John Fisher College.'

Marker Lawson loss shows Bills could be lost in first round [1:53 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'That leaves Lawson as the next one, and he’s not off to a great start, and the front office’s ability to nab a player in the first round in a “comfortable” way, is still up for discussion.'

Marker Report: WR Andre Roberts to visit Bills [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Roberts was released by Washington after making just 11 catches in nine games last season. In 2012, he managed 64 catches in Arizona. Rapaport reports he has other visits scheduled.'

Marker ESPN writer calls Bills a 'Super Bowl sleeper' [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"Buffalo is also a lot closer to having an elite passing attack than it might seem. Last season, Tyrod Taylor had eight games with a Total QBR of 70 or higher. He tied for fourth in that measurement, sharing the ranking with Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Kirk Cousins and Andy Dalton, some very strong company."'

Marker Bills to bring in FA WR Andre Roberts for visit [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Roberts, 28, played through his rookie contract with the Arizona Cardinals for four years, and then spent the last two seasons with Washington after signing there as a free agent in 2014. Washington released him earlier in the week, which made him an unrestricted free agent.'

Marker Bills hosting free agent WR Roberts, LB Lattimore [1:49 AM] reports: 'The Bills pursuit of improving their roster is a never ending process. That was made evident on Thursday evening when they hosted free agent WR Andre Roberts and LB Jamari Lattimore in Buffalo.'

Marker Bills place Archer on did-not-report list [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Now, the search for a consistently strong returner continues.'

Marker Bills at RB: Making a strength even stronger [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Consistently effective running is the Bills' offensive identity. And they clearly devoted a large part of their offseason to making sure that remains the case in 2016 -- especially when it currently stands as the best thing they do on either side of the ball.'

Marker Whaley, Ryan share the blame for gamble on Lawson [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Ryan certainly has to take a large share of the blame for this one. He’s the driving force in the organization. Rex needed an infusion of defensive help to shore up his reputation and help him get back to the playoffs. He wore a Clemson helmet to a news conference last year. His son, Seth, is the holder for the national runner-up. On draft night, Lawson talked about his close relationship with Seth Ryan.'

Marker Taking a risk, Watkins' fragility & who steps up at OLB? [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The questions don't end with the medical staff, however. Scouting is as much about gathering information as it is about the ability to assess talent and project whether it belongs in the NFL. Millions of dollars are spent by each team, including the Bills, to go through this intensely detail-oriented process to find out, with as much certainty as humanly possible, what you're getting: especially with your first-round pick. That's because millions of more dollars will be spent on that player.'

Marker Bills place Dri Archer on reserve/did not report list a week after claiming him [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Archer was also expected to be in the mix to compete for the Bills' return specialist gig. Buffalo is not without options at that spot, though. Gillislee, Robert Woods, Walt Powell, Marquise Goodwin and rookies Kolby Listenbee and Kevon Seymour could all be in the mix for that job.'

Marker Are the Buffalo Bills a sleeper to make a Super Bowl run in 2016? [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Joyner also notes that quarterback Tyrod Taylor could be poised to take another step forward in 2016. If that happens, the Bills could become the type of balanced offense every coach dreams about. Taylor already put together an impressive 2015 season, so if he continues to develop, the Bills have room to improve on offense.'

Marker Watkins' latest injury a worrisome sign for the Bills [1:53 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'Remember, the Bills nabbed Watkins in a draft that featured Odell Beckham, Jr. (who went 12th overall to the New York Giants), Mike Evans (seventh overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers), Brandin Cooks (20th overall to the New Orleans Saints) and Kelvin Benjamin (28th overall to the Carolina Panthers). Beckham, Jr. is already a two-time Pro Bowler and a former first-team All-Pro.'

Marker RB Archer fails to report to Bills [1:52 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'The Jets had signed Archer to a reserve/future contract in February, but he was cut last week and never arrived in Buffalo.'

Marker Quarterbacks with the most to prove in 2016: Buffalo’s Tyrod Taylor [1:51 AM]
SI reports: 'Last year, the Bills got an unexpected bargain by putting their faith in a former backup, who generated starter’s numbers for an $833,333 cap hit. This season, Taylor will either prove his worth as a long-term starter and raise his price accordingly or fall back to the middle and struggle to gain a foothold as anything more than a reliable reserve. The tape indicates that Taylor is more than a one-year wonder, but the circumstances surrounding 2016 undoubtedly make it the most important season of his career.'

Marker Bills place Archer on Reserve/Did Not Report list [1:50 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Archer originally began his NFL career as a third round pick (97th overall) of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 2014 NFL Draft. The Laurel, Florida native has played in 20 games in his career, totaling 10 rush attempts for 40 yards and seven receptions for 23 yards. Archer has also returned 23 kicks for 515 yards.'

Marker While Watkins is out, door is open for several Bills WRs to step up [1:49 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Tyrod Taylor’s former college teammate at Virginia Tech, Boykin really stepped up his second year in the league in 2013 after coming in as an undrafted free-agent in 2012. He caught 49 passes for 681 yards with the Packers that season, but hasn’t done much since. He didn’t play last season after being released by the Carolina Panthers right before the season started. Boykin has a lot of special teams experience and is seen as a good contributor there. But, with Watkins out, he will also have a chance to make an even bigger impression at wideout.'

Marker Bills place RB Dri Archer on Reserve/Did Not Report list [1:48 AM] reports: 'The designation opens up a spot on Buffalo’s 90-man offseason roster. The Bills will retain the rights to Archer until a resolution to his status with the club takes place.'

Marker Depth is biggest worry for Bills at QB position [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Better, worse or the same?: It would be easy to say the Bills stayed the same, because the top two spots haven’t changed. But it would be more accurate to say they’re a little bit worse.'

Marker Bills sign third-round draft pick Washington [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'General Manager Doug Whaley initially told reporters covering the Bills that Williams would compete for a starting job, but in a later interview with NFL Network, he said Williams would be a starter "right off the bus," along with Lawson and Ragland.'

Marker The day after: Questions about Shaq, rest a must for Sammy [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Right now, it sounds like Watkins may have suffered a Jones fracture, common in sports. NFL Network reported Watkins had surgery in Charlotte with Dr. Robert Anderson. The bone he broke was the fifth metatarsal, the same as Dez Bryant and Julian Edelman before him. The injury itself isn't too catastrophic. Watkins was quick to tell the world he's absolutely fine on Twitter by tweeting a photo of his feet. But problems do arise when athletes try to rush back too soon. Dallas' Bryant hurried back from his Jones fracture in 2015 and ended up needing a second surgery. The year prior, in the NBA, Kevin Durant did the same and was shut down for the season.'

Marker Power Take: Three simple rules for following the Bills [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Rule No. 1: Stop listening to them. What they say means nothing and often isn’t the truth, so it would be wise to disregard whatever comes from their mouths. It’s not just ignoring Rex Ryan, which is a given. It’s muting anyone in the front office who claims better days are ahead before providing evidence.'

Marker Injuries make for tough Monday in Buffalo [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Watkins' broken foot was operated on three weeks ago, according to multiple reports, but it's an injury that may have plagued him last year. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Watkins played through a stress fracture in the foot last year. Even if Watkins' injuries are adding up, it's tough to question his toughness considering the production he put up in 2015 despite battling, calf, ankle and foot injuries.'
