Marker McDermott's staff gets good marks from Ex-GM Dominik [1:44 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“I think the good thing he’s got is he has guys who have been the head of their department,” said Dominik. “(Rick) Dennison has run that offensive department for so long and it’s very natural for him. Leslie (Frazier) has not only been a head coach, but a defensive coordinator before, so it’s not new to either of those guys. So I think that’s the most critical part. You’re not concerned and asking, ‘Is he going to be able to call plays?’'

Marker Bills Today: Taylor receives unsung hero honors [1:43 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'Conor Orr of NFL.com chose Taylor as Buffalo’s unsung hero of the season.'

Marker Bills non-committal about quarterback plans [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You look at it this way, I mean, right now, we have three guys under contract," he said of Taylor, EJ Manuel, and Cardale Jones. "We'll probably go to camp with three, maybe four. So, no matter what happens, we're going to do our due diligence on every quarterback in the draft, just like we're going to do on every position.'

Marker Whaley: Bills respect Watson's decision to skip Senior Bowl, will 'do more work on him [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You always want to get more information on a guy, especially in a setting like this," Bills General Manager Doug Whaley said. "But it's one of those things where, obviously, him and his camp decided that was the best for him.'

Marker Bart Scott: 'How can Whaley survive and not Rex?' [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I feel like Doug Whaley and Rex Ryan should have been joined at the hip," said Scott, an NFL studio analyst for CBS who has been at the Senior Bowl this week as part of Morgan Stanley's seminars for the players about money management. "How can he survive and Rex doesn't survive? (Whaley) made those decisions. You talk about the bad contract for Tyrod Taylor with the $30-million pill in it. He didn't even have to give Tyrod Taylor an extension; he was still under contract. So those are all decisions that he made. You talk about trading everything that you traded for Sammy Watkins. Who made that decision? Doug Whaley.'

Marker Chad Kelly: Playing for Bills would be 'once-in-a-lifetime opportunity' [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I mean, that'd be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, of course, to play for your home team, where you grew up and all through the years," the former St. Joe's standout said while here for the Senior Bowl. "It would be truly a dream come true, especially to follow in my uncle's footsteps. But you just never know. Wherever, I'd be very, very happy."'

Marker Buffalo Bills' hiring of Sean McDermott ranked as worst coaching hire by NFL.com [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"It's unfair to rank McDermott this low," Rosenthal said, "but someone has to bring up the rear. McDermott is well respected throughout the NFL, but he has the fewest tangible assets and perhaps the most difficult job of the new coaches."'

Marker Senior Bowl 2017: Everything Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley said (transcript) [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The process basically is, we're going to sit down with every position coach and the coordinator and the head coach, and they're going to have time to look at the guys on our roster right now, be them free agents, be them restricted free agents, and be them guys that are under contract. What we want to have them do is explain their vision of the player in their system that they're going to run. So that's the process. Then we go from there and assign a value.'

Marker Doug Whaley explains Buffalo Bills' philosophy on scouting underclassmen [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"You're obviously going to be aware of guys, but you really don't dive into them because what we like to do is be as efficient as possible," Whaley said. "So if you're going to spend your time on a guy that may not come out, then you're going to take time away from the guys that are definitely coming out. There's plenty enough time from January to the end of April to get these guys, these juniors done. If we can't get them done by us, that's our fault."'

Marker Jim Kelly draws on experience in campaign against cancer [1:52 AM]
AP reports: 'He's teamed with several cancer organizations and pharmaceutical giant Merck to produce a promotional campaign titled "Your Cancer Game Plan," which debuts on Wednesday.'

Marker After surgery, what's next for Watkins? Dr. Anderson explains [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'With that minimal surgery the usual protocol is to have them on crutches for one or two weeks in a boot for one or two weeks and allow them to return to running activity as soon as they feel good. Now even with that fairly accelerator program our studies have shown that 90-percent of guys will heal and stay stay healed. However, there are 10-percent of the guys that with that accelerator program may not be fully healed in the bone. And then after the season what we then do is go back and do a more formal bone grafting procedure to the fracture itself and then exchanging the screw, which also can be very, very successful.'

Marker Chad Kelly with the Bills? It ''would be a dream come true'' [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '“It’s interesting, but, you know, to be able to be around Buffalo would be a dream come true,” Kelly said Wednesday. “I think the coaching staff, they’ve got a great set of players, and the history is one of the best. So, to be able to play in front of your home team and where you grew up would be amazing.”'

Marker Bills Today: Timetable set to shape the roster [1:49 AM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: '“We’ve just set up a date where we’re going to sit down with them and say, ‘Okay give us your vision of your offense, the defense and special teams,’” Whaley told Buffalobills.com. “Then we’ll start incorporating their thought process of the players we have on the roster already and their vision of those players and how they fit into what they plan to do.”'

Marker Whaley: Surgery won't play into Bills' decision on Taylor [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: ' "Right now, the recovery's on schedule. He's been in the office, doing some rehabs, so that looks promising. Everything else is too premature. They just hired (offensive coordinator) Rick Dennison. They just hired (David) Culley for a quarterback coach, so when we get back from the Senior Bowl, then we'll sit down as a staff with the new coaching staff and just go over everybody on our team."'

Marker Whaley tries to clarify conflicting remarks on Bills' roster [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Here's what I said: 'We want to build a foundation that we consistently compete,'" Whaley said during Senior Bowl practices. "And I meant to say it as in, 'We're not one player away from getting over the hump.' We might be one player from getting from 7-9 to 10-6 and making the playoffs, but we want to have a foundation.'

Marker Bills scouts handle Senior Bowl, coaches stay back [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'As a rule, scouts find watching how the prospects handle the practice week more valuable than seeing them perform in Saturday's game. Numerous substitutions and an uneven level of competition against fellow collegians limit their ability to get a true picture of how the players will perform in the NFL.'

Marker Bills linebacker's defense in court: Fish Guy killed my fish [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And Bender cited one reason in court papers: Wolfson sold Spikes an $8,000 custom-made half-circle aquarium “that proved to be inadequate for the type and number of tropical fish owned by Mr. Spikes.”'

Marker 2017 Senior Bowl: Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley looks forward to meeting QB Chad Kelly [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Of all players, Kelly is one that will be put through the ringer in team interviews. He was dismissed from his first high school team and then dismissed from Clemson after getting in an argument with coaches. He committed to Ole Miss in December of 2014 and weeks later was arrested at a Buffalo nightclub after making gun threats and resisting arrest. This fall, Kelly stormed onto the field at a high school football game when his brother was involved in a brawl.'

Marker What Bills GM Doug Whaley said about Clemson QB Deshaun Watson not coming to the Senior Bowl [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Well, you always want to get more information on a guy, especially in a setting like this," Whaley said.

Marker Senior Bowl 2017: What Buffalo Bills GM Doug Whaley said about Tyrod Taylor [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"The process basically is, we're going to sit down with every position coach and the coordinator and the head coach, and they're going to have time to look at the guys on our roster right now, be them free agents, be them restricted free agents, and be them guys that are under contract," Whaley said "What we want to have them do is explain their vision of the player in their system that they're going to run. So that's the process. Then we go from there and assign a value."'

Marker Quarterback Tyrod Taylor named Buffalo Bills' unsung hero by NFL.com [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'The biggest knock on Taylor in 2016 was that the passing offense struggled. Buffalo finished 30th in the league in passing yards, but Taylor shouldn't receive all of the blame for the team's passing woes. Buffalo's offensive line struggled in pass protection and Taylor spent a good portion of the year without his top receiver, Sammy Watkins.'

Marker Buffalo Bills RB Reggie Bush said Rex Ryan was 'too loose' in 2016 [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Yeah, there were times when we just lacked discipline on the football field during games," Bush said. "It showed up. There's times where during practices, you usually can tell how your team is going to play based on how you prepare, right? I feel like there were a few times where maybe we weren't as focused. And it's not all on the head coach, because collectively there's a lot of other coaches there that have to do their job as well. I feel like there were times where it was a little bit too loose and we could have been a little bit more disciplined in this area or that area. Again, that's not to say that it can't work, it just didn't work for our team."'

Marker Buffalo Bills hire David Culley to coach quarterbacks [1:48 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Culley has not been a quarterbacks coach since he coached Southwestern Louisiana's quarterbacks from 1985 to 1988. He also coached Middle Tennessee's quarterbacks in 1982 but otherwise has spent most of his time as a wide receivers coach.'

Marker 2017 Senior Bowl: Justin Evans among 25 prospects Buffalo Bills should be watching [1:47 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'For the most part, this even is a great chance for players to boost their draft stock and an even better chance for teams to get closer looks at certain players. There's plenty to gain for the prospects but also plenty to lose in some instances.'

Marker Bills agree to hire David Culley to coach quarterbacks [1:46 AM]
AP reports: 'Culley will work under newly hired offensive coordinator Rick Dennison.'

Marker Report: Bills add former WR Hall to coaching staff [1:43 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Considering he’s only 30 years old and has never coached at any level, Hall may very well be hired for an entry-level coaching position, such as a quality-control spot. However, the team has yet to announce the status of wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal going forward.'
