Marker What you need to know about the Bills 2017 schedule [1:23 AM] reports: 'Bills head coach Sean McDermott will be focused on winning the game, but he’s human too. There will likely be some emotions stirring within him leading up to the Week 2 date against the Carolina Panthers as his former NFC club hosts Buffalo Sept. 17th.'

Marker Cornerback important in McDermott's defensive scheme [1:22 AM] reports: '“Corner is an important position and you talk about affecting quarterbacks, right? I’m a big believer in trying to affect quarterbacks from the defensive side of the football, and cornerbacks are an important part of that in terms of that formula,” said McDermott. “That’s a position we’re looking hard at, just like the other positions. We’re taking a long time to detail our work and make sure we’ve got all the ‘I’s dotted and ‘T’s crossed.”'

Marker Bills Today: Jonathan Williams unfazed by Gillislee offer sheet [1:21 AM] reports: '“I’m just going to continue with my preparation,” said Williams. “Nothing changes. Mike was one of my closest friends on the team last year. I hung out with him just about every day last season. But every day is a competition and I was trying to beat him out. I work every day to be the best I can be. So my preparation isn’t going to change. I’m still going to try to be the best running back I can be.”'

Marker Analysis: Mike Gillislee dilemma starts with Jim Overdorf's mismanagement of salary cap [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The bottom line is, the Bills have the cap space if they want to match Gillislee’s offer, particularly with more breathing room opening up after June 1 following the release of Aaron Williams.'

Marker 3 reasons the Bills should draft: Albany State DL Grover Stewart [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Playing in Division II means there will be a big learning curve for him, but he showed at the NFLPA Bowl after the 2016 season that he can play at a higher level. Expectations for him shouldn't be too high as a rookie, but he should be a rotational player who could develop into more.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Wake-Up Call: Embarrassment over more Patriot pilfering real issue in possi [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Seeing the Patriots looking to reload for another Super Bowl run with the help of former Bills players is what makes the Gillislee situation harder for a lot of the team's loyalists to stomach. Seeing it happen with a restricted free agent for the second offseason in a row is galling to them.'

Marker 2017 NFL Draft: Mel Kiper Jr. makes his 3 ideal picks for Buffalo Bills [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Peppers would be a fun pick for the Bills at 10. McDermott still needs someone who can play the "big nickel" position in his defense. Peppers might be the only one in this draft who can do it given his experience at both linebacker and safety. He would give the Bills tons of flexibility in the packages they could run with his ability to play outside linebacker and also line up in the slot on passing downs. Will he go as high as 10? He certainly could.'

Marker 2017 NFL Draft: Ranking Mike Williams and top 10 wide receivers for Buffalo Bills [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Mike Williams is exactly the type of physical receiver the Bills need. Some question Williams' pure athleticism, but even without top-end speed, Williams was dominant in college. He consistently wins the battle for contested catches and would be a huge boost to Buffalo's red-zone offense. The top receivers in this draft could be ranked a few different ways depending on team preference, and the Bills should prefer the physicality of Williams.'

Marker Pats offer sheet Bills' RB Mike Gillislee [1:54 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'If Gillislee departs, Buffalo would grab an approximate $1.2 million cap space along with the fifth-round pick, which would bring the Bills back up to seven draft picks this season.'

Marker BDN NFL mock draft with Buffalo, Rochester contributions [1:53 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: 'Buffalo Bills: Mitchell Trubisky, QB, North Carolina.'

Marker Why such a hubbub about Mike Gillislee? [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'The Bills, who don’t have much cap space this off season, must not have been too worried about losing their backup running back. They could have practically guaranteed his return with another 900 thousand dollars. Perhaps they figured they’d much rather have the extra fifth round pick. After all, the Bills only have six picks in this years draft.'

Marker Joe B: NFL Mock Draft No. 5 (4/19/17) [1:51 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'As we get closer to the draft, I continue to believe that the Bills primary objective should be to move out of their first round selection at 10th overall.'

Marker Bills Today: Corry weighs in on Gillislee offer sheet [1:50 AM] reports: 'The Bills would add a fifth-round pick to their current lot of six draft choices in the 2017 draft if they ultimately choose not to match. In a draft that is uncommonly deep, including the running back position, perhaps it was Buffalo’s intent to have another team try to sign Gillislee in the hopes of adding another draft choice.'

Marker Report: Patriots give Bills' Gillislee $6.4-million offer sheet [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If the Bills allow Gillislee to join the Patriots, they will be left with four running backs (LeSean McCoy, Jonathan Williams, Joe Banyard, and Cedric O'Neal) and two fullbacks (Patrick DiMarco and Mike Tolbert).'

Marker One reason why Doug Whaley might push for a first-round quarterback [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In Whaley's case, it might also provide job security -- particularly if that player, be it Watson or another QB picked 10th, sits for a year behind Tyrod Taylor. No matter what happens in 2017, Whaley could point to that quarterback as "the future" and build a case that more time is needed to see if that's indeed true.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Wake-Up Call: First judgments coming for backup QB, No. 2 receiver competit [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The coaches will see how well Tyrod Taylor, T.J. Yates, Cardale Jones, and Josh Woodrum can throw and how the receivers who are healthy enough to participate -- which is likely everyone except Sammy Watkins -- can catch.'

Marker Who's Quavo? Why is he wearing a Bills jersey? And what does Bills WR Kolby Listenbee have to d [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Do the Bills have a new quarterback? Well, no, but if you saw this Instagram post of Quavo wearing a No. 18 Bills jersey with the caption "Buffalo called" Monday night, you might have thought about it for a second.'

Marker 3 reasons the Bills should draft: Temple QB Phillip Walker [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'After not getting invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, Walker needed to impress when the Owls' held their Pro Day. He did just that, with a 40 time (4.73 seconds) that put him among the leaders at his position. Additionally, those in attendance reported that Walker looked good going through quarterback throwing drills.'

Marker Buffalo Bills RB Mike Gillislee may be joining Patriots [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'On the positive side, the Patriots would owe Buffalo a fifth-round pick in the 2017 draft because the Bills gave Gillislee an original-round tender. Currently the Bills have only six picks at their disposal. Also, the Bills would get about $1.2 million in salary cap space. If the Bills were to retain Gillislee, they’d have to absorb a $4 million cap hit in 2017 which would drop them below $10 million in available cap space.'

Marker New England Patriots working over 'poorly run' Buffalo Bills, says Colin Cowherd [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"New England's completely, as a franchise, working Buffalo over," said Cowherd. "Two teams that New England has gone after: Cleveland's players and Buffalo's. Poor run franchises. Poorly run franchises. This is what the rich guys do. This is what the rich guys do. This is what the rich people in America do. They find the crevices. They find the weak spots and they go at it, at it, at it. Belichick keeps going right after the poorly run franchises, Buffalo and Cleveland, and cherry picking their players that are undervalued or underused or overpaid or underpaid at Cleveland and Buffalo and it's worked."'

Marker 2017 NFL Draft: 10 sleeper RBs Buffalo Bills could draft to replace Mike Gillislee [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'If the Bills lose Gillislee, they will end up with a need at running back. Second-year pro Jonathan Williams didn't do much as a rookie, and the team's depth chart looks a bit thin behind LeSean McCoy. Gillislee may seem like a huge loss after he burst onto the scene with 577 rushing yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. But the Bills could replace him. After all, they claimed Gillislee off waivers, and he was originally a fifth-round pick himself.'

Marker Patriots extend offer sheet to Buffalo Bills RFA RB Mike Gillislee (report) [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The Patriots signed Rex Burkhead in free agency, but have still been active in the free agent market at the position. LeGarrette Blount remains unsigned and the Patriots also with with Adrian Peterson.'

Marker Syracuse WR and kick returner Brisly Estime worked out for Buffalo Bills [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Estime, who stands 5-feet-8-inches tall and 186 pounds, made a name for himself at Syracuse with his blazing speed. He was one of the most productive return men in the country over the last two seasons. Estime led the ACC in punt return yardage for a second consecutive season, returning 16 punts for 283 yards. He also led the NCAA in punt return average with 17.7 yards per return. Estime also holds the ACC career record for punt return average with 18 yards per return.'

Marker Buffalo Bills' Doug Whaley listed as worst GM in league by Rotoworld [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Considering the reports surrounding Whaley and Buffalo's inability to get over the hump during his tenure, it's no surprise that one site views him as the league's worst general manager. Rotoworld published their best general managers list and Whaley came in dead last among returning general managers.'

Marker Buffalo Bills projected 2017 schedule: Who will the Bills face in season opener? [1:48 AM]
Auburn Citizen reports: 'We also don't know when the Bills' bye week will be. Last year, the Bills had a Week 10 bye week. It'd be a safe bet to say it will be earlier in 2017.'

Marker AP Source: Patriots sign Bills RB Gillislee to offer sheet [1:47 AM]
AP reports: 'The Bills lack experienced depth behind Gillislee, though veteran fullback Mike Tolbert could fill that role. Buffalo signed Tolbert and fullback Patrick DiMarco in free agency last month.'

Marker Patriots sign Bills RB Mike Gillislee to two-year offer sheet [1:46 AM]
ESPN reports: 'If the Bills decline to match Gillislee's offer, it is unlikely the Patriots will re-sign free-agent running back LeGarrette Blount, who led the NFL with 18 rushing touchdowns, which was the highest total in the NFL since Adrian Peterson had 18 in 2009. He was the Patriots' top power running back, totaling 1,161 yards on 299 carries in the regular season.'
