Buffalo Bills News - June 24, 2016

Marker Tyrod Taylor turns Bills quarterback nightmare into justified playoff dream [1:55 AM]
The Sporting News reports: '"He’s really made improvements,” quarterbacks coach David Lee said of Taylor after Buffalo's minicamp. “His eyes are in the right place. He’s looking for mismatches that he didn’t quite see all of the time a year ago. His ability to stand in there with stuff in front of him, he’s been doing a great job of that this spring and throwing the football over the middle with that stuff in front of him."'

Marker Ragland, Seymour could have biggest impact from Bills rookie class [1:54 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'We all know now that Lawson is going to miss all of training camp and then some regular season time after having shoulder surgery. Obviously, missing that much time his rookie season will set him back as far as getting acclimated to the defense and a feel for playing at this level and the speed of it. The positive is he can still take part in meetings and watch film and learn, so when he comes back he should at least have a mental understanding of what he needs to do.'

Marker Terrell Owens: 'Buffalo, you guys were awesome to me' [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: '"I wish I could have played a couple more years here, but that didn't happen. Buffalo is a great city, they've embraced me and I tried to do the same with my performance on the football field. Again, I wish I could have stayed longer. Obviously there were some coaching changes and they had some other things in mind for the team."'

Marker Bills new cornerback hoping to provide Moore [1:52 AM] reports: '“I’ve been in a few different locker rooms, so I know what it takes to kind of earn the trust of your teammates and coaches and show people what you can do,” Moore said. “You always have a chip on your shoulder, especially when you come to a new team, but I definitely think being in various locker rooms with different teams kind of helps me out.”'

Marker Dareus says he now doesn't 'have to think as much' in Bills' defense [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"It’s the second year, we’re going to play in the same defense; it’s the first time in my NFL career this happened," Dareus told SiriusXM NFL Radio Tuesday, referencing the Bills' multiple coaching changes since he joined them as the third overall pick from Alabama in 2011. "It feels good to know I can just do what I need to do and I don’t have to think as much. I don’t have to spend so much time trying to help this guy, help that guy or them doing the same with me.'

Marker Post-spring practices Bills 53-man roster projection [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Seymour was mentioned in the same breath as Darby by Ryan, so it's clear the Bills are impressed with what they've seen from the sixth-round draft pick out of Southern California. On paper, the depth at this position seems like a strength. Javier Arenas doesn't survive the cut in this projection, but certainly could play his way onto the roster as the team's punt returner.'

Marker On a new stadium, Bills remain in 'fact-finding mode' [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“When you look under the Christmas tree everyone wants brand-new toys, that’s easily said,” Brandon told the newspaper. “But when you go through the process and look to see exactly what makes sense for our community, that’s what we have to be very thoughtful of. With a new stadium comes a lot of things — public-private partnership, there’s PSLs (personal seat licenses), there’s cost increases across the board. We’ve been successful in Buffalo with a volume model; lot of seats in the building, lot of suites in the building, and we’ve been able to keep costs down because we’ve been able to manage a 43-year-old building and we’ve been able to do that very well. That equation, economically, changes with a new building.”'

Marker Can Tyrod Taylor pull a Cam Newton in 2016? [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'And it's a stretch to say Taylor — four inches shorter, 30 pounds lighter — will replicate Newton to a T. Up until a Super Bowl beatdown, Newton redefined his position in throwing for 4,333 yards, rushing for 686 and scoring 50 touchdowns with only 11 interceptions in 18 games, a MVP season that made Buddy Nix wonder "What if..." from afar. But with Buffalo's brutal schedule ahead, with plenty of uncertainty swirling around Taylor at other positions, the Bills will need him to be special in 2016. They'll need him to take a huge step forward.'

Marker Orchard Park board weighs police access to private lots [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'To run private parking lots, currently, residents have to obtain a permit from the town, one that has to be renewed each year. That much would not change, but there would be one more stipulation – the waiver allowing police access.'

Marker Pegulas' diverse company driving change in Buffalo [1:54 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '“I love to tell this story because it’s a great example of you don’t always need to do a lot to get things rolling,” Kim continues. “As much as people see us making big moves, whether it’s buying the Bills or building Harbor Center, I like to tell people it doesn’t take a whole lot (to make a difference, to effect change). You can do little things. The first thing that really spawned a lot of this was ‘the grass.’”'

Marker Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula discusses the possibility of a new stadium [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Pegula plays things close to the vest and didn't divulge much, but he knows the chatter is out there both from other owners in the league and the commissioner.'

Marker Bills' owner: NFL asked about stadium plans [1:53 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: '"I think they think we need a new stadium, that's where they're coming from," Pegula said. "You listen to that and you make your own judgment. Our stadium is one of the older venues in the league, if not the oldest."'

Marker Bills owner Terry Pegula on new stadium plans: 'We'll look into that' [1:52 AM]
ESPN reports: 'Multiple NFL owners, including the New York Giants' John Mara, told The Buffalo News at the owners meetings in March that the Bills should be making strides toward building a new facility.'

Marker Source: Bills, Taylor continue dialogue; both sides open to in-season extension [1:51 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'However, indications I've received are that Gilmore's agent is looking for a deal in the range of what Josh Norman recently signed with the Washington Redskins which made him the highest paid player at his position in the league. Norman got $75 million over five years with $50 million guaranteed. The Bills are unlikely willing to go that high for Gilmore, who hinted last week he could miss some training camp time over the contractual situation.'

Marker Bills’ Ryan encouraged by OTAs [1:13 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'Cynics, of course, will point to that fact that winning the offseason doesn’t seem to be the proper assessment of a team that won’t have its top draft choice (defensive end Shaq Lawson) until possibly halfway through the regular season due to a shoulder injury, with its top wide receiver (Sammy Watkins) recovering from foot surgery that will likely delay his starting training camp, its star second-year running back (Karlos Williams) grossly overweight, and with no obvious No. 2 wideout.'

Marker Dareus says Gilmore needs to be 'patient' in talks with Bills [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“I don’t want no outside distractions. I’m a pro now, I don’t need that. I have an agent, I have a lawyer, y’all talk about it with them. But other than that, I’m out here practicing, I’m on time, I’m working out, I’m getting in shape. Don’t bring it to me, I don’t want no outside distractions.'

Marker Bills shake up training, scouting staffs with Kelvin Fisher moving to new role [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Buffalo Bills announced a slew of changes to their scouting and training staffs on Tuesday, moving one of the higher members on the front-office totem pole into a new role.'

Marker 12 opinions on the MSG-Pegula Sports deal [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'PSE’s Mark Preisler and the Bills’ Marc Honan believe the move of John Murphy’s WGR radio show on the Bills to noon to 3 p.m. from nights will enable Murphy and a new co-host to get more players and coaches to guest on the program being aired live from studios at Ralph Wilson Stadium.'

Marker Keep the Ralph? The cost of a new stadium to Bills fans [1:56 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'But even then, with the threat of the team moving out of town if those seats weren’t sold, there were whispers that a new stadium might have been a smarter play than gussying up what soon became known as Ralph Wilson Stadium. And through the years, those whispers grew louder and louder to the point where, when the next major renovation plan was put into motion, there was clear opposition. Some of it was local, but most of it emanated from other NFL owners who thought it was foolhardy to spend more money on a stadium entering its fifth decade of existence.'

Marker Marcell Dareus' contract advice to Stephon Gilmore: Be patient and do your job [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"He's got to understand that it's a business and you've got to be patient," Dareus said. "You have to be patient, you can't just be like this, like that. You still have a job. You still have a job. Do your job and just come to be patient. Let things fall as they may."'

Marker Deal adds Buffalo Bills content, keeps Sabres games on MSG Networks [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'MSG also has the right to carry any of the Pegula Sports-produced programs in areas beyond Western New York where it is carried, meaning the programs could air in Syracuse.'

Marker Marquise Goodwin Is Making the Jump [1:53 AM]
SI reports: '“I know it is a risk,” Goodwin says. “I want a second contract. I’d love it to be in Buffalo. I love football. But I know how important it is to live your life like you want to. I know some organizations wouldn’t allow that, but Rex [Ryan] does and I’m so appreciative of that.”'

Marker Bills make changes in personnel department and training staff [1:52 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Pete Harris has been promoted to College Area Scout. Harris, who is entering his ninth season with the Bills, spent the past three seasons as the team’s BLESTO Scout. He spent time as a scouting assistant for the team during the 2011 and 2012 seasons.'

Marker Bills announce changes in player personnel department [1:51 AM] reports: 'Kelvin Fisher has been named Player Personnel Advisor. Prior to coming to Buffalo in 2013, Fisher spent 13 seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers after joining the team in 2000.'

Marker Bills announce promotions in athletic training staff [1:50 AM] reports: 'Bud Carpenter has been promoted to Director of Athletic Training Operations. Carpenter is entering his 32nd season with the Bills and served the past 21 years as the team's head athletic trainer. He was recently selected to the Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame. Carpenter, who originally joined the team in 1985, attended St. Bonaventure and SUNY Fredonia.'

Marker Offseason addition Corey White recommended by Rob Ryan [1:49 AM] reports: '“I can play pretty much any position: secondary, nickel, corner, free safety, strong safety, dom,” he said in the final day of mandatory minicamp. “That’s what we did with me in New Orleans when I was with Rob, so that’s what I’m here for. Just be that guy that can help out in any position.”'

Marker At right tackle for Bills, it looks like Jordan Mills' job to lose [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Right now, it's a case where Seantrel's sick and Mills has started at Chicago for me and started for us this year," offensive line coach Aaron Kromer said. "He's doing a solid job. He understands what to do and how to do it."'

Marker Zoo visit gives Bills rookies a chance to be kids again [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The event was part of the new NFL Rookie Transition Program hosted by each of the 32 clubs for drafted and undrafted rookies. The program replaces the Rookie Symposium, which was held in a central location (most recently in Ohio) and was open only to drafted rookies. The new program, which has the players hearing all sorts of cautionary tales about life as an NFL player, runs through this week, providing the rookies a chance to get to learn more about the communities in which they play and to give back.'

Marker Dezmin Lewis gains ground, Karlos Williams gains weight, Tyrod Taylor shines [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'EJ Manuel and Cardale Jones both struggled in the practices open to the media. Manuel threw multiple pick-sixes and was hesitant in 7-on-7 drills, a familiar sight. Jones unleashed one eye-popping throw deep, yet floated several passes high and short in addition to footwork problems in other drills. One play, he smashed into his fullback. Jones is clearly a project. Granted, a lot of teams would be waving the white flag if their starting QB went down but the back-up plan is especially worrisome here in Buffalo.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills Wake Up Call: If it can happen in Cleveland ... [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'If nothing else, the hope might feel a little more real than it did before. For many people, that will do. For now.'
