Buffalo Bills News - May 13, 2017

Marker Air Force's Jalen Robinette lands in NFL rookie mini-camp with Buffalo Bills [1:43 AM]
Colorado Springs Gazette reports: 'Robinette expected to be drafted, but the Department of Defense altered its position to require service academy graduates to serve at least two years on active duty before pursuing professional sports full-time. The previous rule, in effect for just one year, had allowed athletes to immediately apply to serve on reserve status and play right away.'

Marker Beane foresees smooth transition in taking over as Bills GM [1:42 AM]
AP reports: '"I would bounce ideas of him of where we could get players. We were always talking about how to make our defense better," Beane said. "And now, instead of just talking about the defense with him, I'm going to talk about the whole team with him."'

Marker Beane era officially starts in Buffalo [1:41 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"We feel his vast understanding and experience in many facets of football operations will be invaluable to our club moving forward. We also believe his vision for the Buffalo Bills, combined with his detailed approach, will help build a foundation for sustained success."'

Marker Beane: 'This was an opportunity I couldn't pass up' [1:40 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"I went through the interview process with the Pegulas and I had never met them, and so that’s the first thing you do – you’re trying to figure out, alright, who’s the owners, who’s leading this ship? And I was blown away. You go into something, you’re kind of like, eh, I don’t know what it’s going to be like. When I left the interview, I wanted to be a Buffalo Bill. So when I got the call for the second interview, Hayley and I had already talked about it and it was just a dream come true and they (Terry and Kim) undoubtedly are going to do anything they can to help me and Sean and the rest of this team build a winner to what this team used to have back in the ‘90s."'

Marker Hey, rookie! Time to get to work! [1:39 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Of the 58 players on the rookie camp roster, chances are slim - at best - most of them will get that far. But that’s why they’re here. For that one shot. And they’ll all have three days to prove to the coaching staff they deserve to stick around.'

Marker White & Jones square off on first day of Bills Rookie Minicamp [1:38 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"I thought the drafted players were solid for the first day and that's what I was looking for," McDermott said. "You watched some competition out there with Zay (Jones) and Tre'Davious (White) out there and that was good to see."'

Marker Joe B: 7 observations from Buffalo Bills rookie minicamp (5/12/17) [1:37 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Granted, it was only the first day of the on-the-field learning for a player taking snaps at the most complex position in sports, but fifth-round quarterback Nathan Peterman didn't wow the reporters on hand by any means. '

Marker 5 takeaways from new Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane (5/12/17) [1:36 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'This is how the Green Bay Packers run their operation with GM Ted Thompson, and they've had sustained success for a long, long time. Consider me a fan of this way of thinking from the Bills new GM.'

Marker Beane's team building rooted in proven philosophy [1:35 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“You’re not going to see big splashes of free agency. Free agency sets you up for your draft. You don’t want to go into the draft needing a cornerback – needing an offensive tackle. If me and my staff do our job, we’ll look at where we have some holes after the season, we’ll plug a few holes, and then we’ll be able to draft for need when April comes.”'

Marker Rookie minicamp preview [1:34 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“I’m going to ask these players to battle every day,” said head coach Sean McDermott. “They’re coming in to earn the right to be on this football team and this roster and we’ll see where it goes from there. When you look at the players with Tre’ (Tre’Davious White) and Zay, they have that type of DNA over the course of their careers in college where they’ve earned everything that they’ve gotten.”'

Marker Bills Today: ESPN reporters tab Bills divisional draft winners [1:33 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Mike Reiss, New England Patriots reporter: I particularly liked the Bills’ approach as they laid the foundation for longer-term sustainability (e.g., trading down and picking up a first-round pick in 2018) and establishing the type of culture coach Sean McDermott believes in with the type of hard-nosed, no-frills players they are targeting. It seems they have a defined plan, and that stood out as something different from the norm.'

Marker Bills sign two draft picks, release three players [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Milano, a former Boston College standout, and Vallejo, who played at Boise State, are expected to compete for backup spots and contribute on special teams.'

Marker Zay Jones-Phil McGeoghan reunion begins at Bills' rookie minicamp [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Yeah, I would say Coach McGeoghan really got me pro ready when it came to this last year," Jones said during a conference call with reporters after the Buffalo Bills made him a second-round pick in last month's NFL Draft. "He introduced me to the entire route tree and just different things, and it has really helped develop my game becoming a complete wide receiver.'

Marker Gilmore sounds like a true Patriot in news conference [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Asked if it was "frustrating" to face the Patriots through the years, Gilmore said, "They did a lot of great things playing against them. I'm happy to be over here and learn from the guys and learn from the coaches. (We've) got great coaches. So I'm looking forward to it."'

Marker Buffalo Bills sign rookie linebackers Matt Milano and Tanner Vallejo [1:56 AM]

Marker 2 Buffalo Bills predicted to make All-Rookie Team by NFL's Bucky Brooks [1:54 AM]

Marker Bills sign rookie linebackers Milano, Vellejo; cut 3 players [1:53 AM]
AP reports: 'Buffalo freed up room on its roster by releasing three players, including Marcus Roberson, a third-year player who appeared in seven games with the Bills last season. Also cut were cornerback Marcus Cromartie, an offseason free-agent addition, and receiver Corey Washington.'

Marker What to expect from each Bills' draft pick in 2017 [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'White will compete for a starting job right away. But it’s not going to be handed to him. Ronald Darby should be the No.1 CB headed into the season with Kevon Seymour and White the clear front-runners for the spot opposite him. But it may not matter who ultimately winds up there, because new head coach Sean McDermott is most likely going to be playing a lot of nickel this year meaning three cornerbacks will be on the field on a high percentage of downs. So the only question would then be who plays inside and who plays outside between White and Seymour? Both can do it and both probably will in camp to find the best mix.'

Marker Bills sign draft picks Milano, Vallejo [1:51 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'These contracts mean a third of the Bills’ 2017 draft class is signed. Only Buffalo’s top three draft choices, Tre’Davious White, Zay Jones and Dion Dawkins and fifth-round pick Nate Peterman remain unsigned.'

Marker What they're saying: NFL reactions to new Bills GM Brandon Beane [1:50 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '"He's well thought of by the people in Carolina," Polian said. "He's well thought of by people around the league. He has extensive experience on all of the administrative sides of the game. Salary cap, player acquisition, rules, roster. The most important thing is he and Sean know each other. They obviously have a working relationship. That wasn't the case with Doug Whaley with any of the three coaches, really, under which he served or with whom he served I should say. So this will be a happy marriage and one that bolds well for the Bills. It's a good hire. He's not there simply because he knows and worked with Sean. It's because he's done a good job in his own right."'

Marker Bills Today: PFF has high grade on UDFA Marquavius Lewis [1:49 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Marquavius Lewis projects to play the defensive tackle position in the NFL and is a name to follow, as he tries to earn a spot on the roster for the upcoming season.'

Marker Beane to control Bills' 53-man roster, but McDermott will have final say [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'An NFL source said McDermott would function in the same manner as Reid, who gave McDermott his first job in the league with the Philadelphia Eagles and has long served as his professional mentor. Unlike his predecessor, Doug Whaley, who virtually disappeared from public view after McDermott became the Bills' coach last January, Beane is expected to be more visible, as is the case with Dorsey.'

Marker Vic Carucci's 3 Bills thoughts on Beane hire: Front-office overhaul isn't finished [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Terry Pegula pretty much gave an ominous foreshadowing of Overdorf's future with the Bills when, during his April 30 news conference announcing the firing of Doug Whaley, he said, "Jim Overdorf, we’re going to support him as much as we can, but that decision will be made by the new GM that’s coming into the organization."'

Marker Wilson Foundation establishes $5 million fund for youth sports [1:57 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The fund will provide annual and ongoing support to expand and improve youth sports and recreational opportunities in the city of Rochester, Monroe, Livingston, Ontario, Seneca, Wayne and Yates counties.'

Marker Buffalo Bills franchise in much better hands under Sean McDermott, says Adam Schein [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Are the Bills going to be good this year?" Schein asked. "Here's a hot take: I don't know. The roster is still leaky, thanks to the faux pas of former general manager Doug Whaley. But with Rex Ryan out and Sean McDermott in, there will be toughness and accountability. The Bills won't shoot themselves in the foot with mind-numbing penalties. Buffalo will resemble a football team that the long-suffering fans in lovely Western New York will be proud of.'

Marker Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane gets high praise from Bill Polian, Dave Gettleman [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"He's well thought of by the people in Carolina," Polian said. "He's well thought of by people around the league. He has extensive experience on all of the administrative sides of the game. Salary cap, player acquisition, rules, roster. The most important thing is he and Sean know each other. They obviously have a working relationship. That wasn't the case with Doug Whaley with any of the three coaches, really, under which he served or with whom he served I should say. So this will be a happy marriage and one that bolds well for the Bills. It's a good hire. He's not there simply because he knows and worked with Sean. It's because he's done a good job in his own right."'

Marker Buffalo Bills GM Brandon Beane, not Sean McDermott, to control 53-man roster (report) [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'That working relationship is the main reason to be encouraged by this Bills hire. Beane doesn't have experience as an area scout, but he has handled a variety of roles in football operations over the last 19 years with the Carolina Panthers. It's noteworthy that he'll control the 53-man roster, but the majority of NFL general managers control the 53. It would be naive to think McDermott's hands won't be all over every decision this team is making.'

Marker Late nights with Dave Gettleman prepared Brandon Beane for ‘good landing spot’ in Buffal [1:53 AM]
Charlotte Observer reports: '“I spent a lot of time with him watching film and teaching and doing those kind of things. And Brandon’s a sponge. He really listens. He’s very diligent. He works at it,” Gettleman said during a phone interview. “The only way you’re going to improve your evaluation skills is just grind tape. ... It was his willingness to listen and learn that really accelerated his progress in terms of becoming a general manager.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills player, Super Bowl champ James Ihedigbo opening daycare [1:52 AM]
Fort Bend Sun reports: 'Buffalo Bills safety and Super Bowl champion James Ihedigbo, along with his wife Brittany, are opening a new Kiddie Academy child care center in Rosharon, Texas.'
