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 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.'

Marker Familiarity pushes Bills QBs forward [1:54 AM] reports: '“There’s a good reason he’s here,” said Lee of Manuel. “He’s here because we still believe in him. The general manager believes in him, the head coach believes in him, I believe in him, Greg does. He’s got a big arm. He’s one of the finest people I’ve ever met in my life. He’s such a great person, and he studies he does everything right.'

Marker Bills WR Watkins expects to be ready for camp [1:59 AM]
TSN reports: '“For training camp, I think I’ll definitely be available,” Watkins told “I might sit out two or three days. It’s all about how I feel within those days. The goal is to come back and be prepared for training camp.”'

Marker WR Dez Lewis: Pray more, worry less [1:58 AM] reports: '“It’s always good to be big and use my size to my advantage, so that’s the main thing. Just trying to stay big,” Lewis said. “My main thing is to give (the coaches) options, so that’s why I continue to stay in the weight room over the offseason and workout.”'

Marker A vote to stick with Rex [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'You can roll your eyes and shake your head. You can sigh, smirk, sneer, sniff, spit. Do whatever you like to express your disgust because your football purity has been violated by the suggestion a coach should stick around simply because he's great copy. But that's exactly what Rex is, and it's exactly what those of us who are expected to produce more and more Bills content need. Desperately.'

Marker Reggie Ragland has plans for his NFL break: Keep working [1:58 AM]
Birmingham News reports: '"This is the most important time for football players, especially in the NFL," Ragland said. "During the break, the guys who are going to stay disciplined are the ones that are normally successful during the season. So you've got to stay disciplined, get the extra cardio in, make sure you're ready for the conditioning test. Because when training camp comes, the next thing you know, a couple of weeks of training camp you're right into the preseason, and once the preseason's over, there goes the season."'

New Bern Sun Journal reports: '“It’s important, especially growing up here and knowing how it was when I was coming up,” said Reddick, who plays for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills. “We didn’t really have this but it’s good to be able to come back and do this."'

Marker Athletic TE Blake Annen making his presence felt [1:56 AM] reports: '“He’s a very gifted athlete,” said Bills tight ends coach Tony Sparano Jr. “His speed, his athleticism are there for all to see. But the fact that he’s able to pair that with his work ethic and with being as coachable as he is and being a student of the game that he is, is why I’m a big believer in his ability and his potential.”'

Marker Q&A with Bills QB Tyrod Taylor: 'I play this game to be one of the greatest players to ever [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I’m just trying to better myself. At the end of the day, I play this game to be one of the greatest players to ever play. I have goals for myself and I feel I can meet those goals if I do the things necessary. I take it one day at a time, just keeping a level head. Never getting too high. That’s what I did last year—never getting too high, never getting too low. Just staying even keel through all situations.'

Marker Rex & Rob Ryan go viral ... on a tandem bicycle [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'You probably have seen the tweet.'

Marker Gilmore standoff, Rex's psychology & Reed's read [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'But the point is, the Bills don't have to go to wall for Gilmore. Nor should they. He's a top-level cornerback, a critical component of a defense that requires its corners to constantly play man-to-man coverage. But just because he wants to use Norman as the standard for his salary doesn't mean the Bills have to.'

Marker Bills' Ryan is selling title hopes in summer ... again [1:56 AM]
Erie Times News reports: 'He's dressing up average and calling it exceptional. It's a lot of hot air floating even more hope.'

Marker Offensive tackle signed by Bills after minicamp tryout [1:55 AM]

Marker Bills add T Renfrow to roster [1:54 AM]
The Sports Xchange reports: 'Buffalo also designated safety Phillip Thomas as waived/injured.'

Marker Bills Top 20 Talents in 2016: No. 1 - WR Sammy Watkins [1:53 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'The Sammy Watkins watch will be on during the summer at St. John Fisher College. Watkins underwent offseason foot surgery and the Bills have yet to release a firm timetable as to when he's expected back in action. The Bills don't believe he's in any jeopardy of missing time in the regular season, but at the very least, it's a situation worth tracking. Once he's back on the field, Watkins hopes to combine with starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor to top the marks they had together over the final nine games in 2015. If they can recapture the magic, the sky is the limit for Watkins in 2016.'

Marker Bills Top 20 Talents in 2016: No. 2 - DL Marcell Dareus [1:52 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'For Dareus, it's a bit of a scheme switch for him in the upcoming season. However, with how the Bills have shown through minicamp that they're going to make their defensive linemen essentially interchangeable, Dareus won't be stuck at either nose tackle or at five-technique defensive end. Instead, they can find the weakness on an opponent's offensive line, stick Dareus there and exploit it all game if they so choose. With a healthier and talented front-seven around him, expect a few more flash plays from Dareus in the upcoming season.'

Marker Bills Top 20 Talents in 2016: No. 3 - CB Stephon Gilmore [1:51 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Following the conclusion of minicamp, the outlook for Stephon Gilmore this season is looking a little murky. Clearly not happy with only a one-year contract, Gilmore abstained from all 10 session of Organized Team Activities, and only watched practice from the sidelines during the three-day, mandatory minicamp. He even hinted that he might hold out from training camp if the two sides don't have a new deal in place. The short-term isn't looking good for Gilmore. However, if/when he gets back on the field, he's immediately one of the best the Bills have.'

Marker 7 Bills thoughts & 3 random thoughts, too [1:50 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Listen, as far as OTAs and minicamps go, we’ve all fallen into the trap of being fooled by standout play. The truth of the matter is this: offseason practices are a watered down version of football. There isn’t any hitting and contact is minimal, which allows some players to shine through. But with Tyrod Taylor, his offseason matters, and here’s why: Even in these few workouts, Taylor just looks different.'

Marker The Bills' Ryan brothers, a tandem bike, and Delaware Park [1:49 AM]
WKBW-TV reports: 'Some pictures are worth 1,000 words, and then there's this one.'

Marker Bills CB Mario Butler loves to give back [1:48 AM]
WJXT-TV reports: '"A lot of times kids in the inner city don't get enough credit," said Butler. "I was one of those kids that went against the grain but was able to come out positive. Now I want to be a positive impact on my community."'
