Marker Bills 53-man roster projection (7/5) [1:57 AM]

Marker 3 reasons why Dez Lewis' game should take a big leap forward [1:59 AM] reports: '“He’s the type of guy that took a hold of everything,” said Lal. “Every little glimmer of knowledge, he took it, he wrote it down, he went home and did it.

He’s an example of a guy that no matter where you start, if you take the coaching that everyone in this building is giving you and apply it here, you’re going to make strides. He’s done that.”'

Marker 5 offensive playmakers to look for [1:57 AM] reports: 'Fans who will be watching for Shady at training camp may not see a lot of action, but be patient.

Marker Stronger Bills RG John Miller aiming for a big jump in Year 2 [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Asking him different things and asking him how he approached different things," Miller said. "You’ve got a guy who made the Pro Bowl, a guy who’s been a dominant offensive guard in this league. So I look at a lot of things he did and try to imitate it. Try to break it down and use it to the best of my ability. Everything is technical to me right now whether that’s footwork in the run game, head placement, all those different things help me improve my game.”'

Marker Luck's deal can only mean good fortune for Taylor [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Before Luck's agreement jumped into his briefcase, Taylor's agent, Adisa Bakari, was already well armed with plenty of ammunition from the Osweiler and Cousins situations. Bakari wants the Bills to come to the realization they have the best quarterback they've had since Jim Kelly and that there isn't anyone on the horizon who is going to be better. He's probably right on both counts, which is why he wants the Bills to make the kind of offer Taylor has no choice but to sign now or at some point before the end of the 2016 campaign.'

Marker From homeless and heartbroken to a shot with the Bills [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'On a drive from his Orchard Park apartment to Spot Coffee in downtown Buffalo, Lucas is stone-cold quiet. Only small talk about the early NBA Finals (“The Warriors couldn’t miss”), moving from South Beach to the boonies of Morgantown (“Big change”) and his linemen teammates here in Buffalo (“A great group”) break up long stretches of silence. Dreads pouring from a backward Bills hat, Lucas ambles inside the café, takes a seat and that steely exterior softens the moment he’s asked about his upbringing.'

Marker Colt Anderson looks to overcome odds (again) to make Bills' roster [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I was just patient and knew that a team was going to come around eventually and, fortunately, the Bills did," he said. "Great opportunity here. They take pride in their special teams, and it's kind of what's gotten me eight years in the NFL now, my special-teams play."'

Marker Like father, like son, expect Bills HC Rex Ryan to blitz a lot in 2016 [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So, first, Ryan drafted three players he hopes bring a Buddy-like attitude. Maybe Shaq Lawson, Reggie Ragland and Adolphus Washington provide the bite this defense needs. Lawson boasted that he once sent a kid in high school to the hospital: "Kids were crying. And they sent him to the emergency room.” Washington remembers one of his victims on the field squirming in agony. Ragland was used on offense as a running back early in games to set a physical tone. And, in Ragland, Ryan sees the type of player his father coveted.'

Marker Rex Ryan surprised by father's death, said Buddy Ryan was 'one tough son of a gun' [1:55 AM]
ESPN reports: '"When Dad looked at football players, he would take them in his own image," Rex Ryan said. "That's what he grew up around; that's what he was when he was a master sergeant in the Korean War. That's what I took, and that's what I want on my football team."'
