Buffalo Bills News - April 22, 2017

Marker Seething Salvatore says NFL schedule displaces his annual Bills-Miami bash [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Referring to the many Bills fans who travel to Florida for the game every year, Salvatore also wrote, “The ‘New Year’s Eve Blunder’ will cost the city of Miami a lot of money, disappoint thousands, and for me personally, it has taken the heart right out of me."'

Marker Buffalo Bills should pass on Sammy Watkins' fifth-year option [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The fact that Watkins has battled at least seven different injuries and has been 100 percent healthy on a game day perhaps a handful of times in three years only exacerbates how dumb this move was.'

Marker Buffalo Bills made a debacle in first common draft 50 years ago [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'With Bills fans still stewing about the Lamonica trade, the folly of the draft commenced, and when it was done, the Bills picked 19 players over the course of 17 rounds. Only three would ever wear a Buffalo uniform, and only one — first-round defensive back John Pitts — would contribute in a somewhat meaningful way. The other two players who made the team as rookies in 1967, second-round lineman/tight end Jim Lemoine and fourth-round offensive lineman Gary Bugenhagen from Syracuse, played sparingly and were gone before the 1968 season began.'

Marker Buffalo Bills add Ohio State defensive back in 7-round mock draft [1:54 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Conley's draft stock has been on the rise. He has experience at both cornerback spots and could thrive in Sean McDermott's zone defense. The cornerback has good size at six feet tall and showed terrific speed by running a 4.44 40-yard dash at the NFL combine.'

Marker Buffalo Bills pre-draft luncheon: Sean McDermott talks Doug Whaley (5 takeaways) [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"You respect all," McDermott said. "You start off with that in mind. You respect everyone's opinion. That's why they're here. That's what leaders do. At the end of the day, that's a decision that will be made by Doug and I, together. We have to weigh all of the opinions that are in the room, and certainly Doug has great familiarity with the players because he's been looking at these players for a long time. I'm trusting Doug on that, and his staff, in terms of their experience around these players and what's happened on campus with these players over the course of the past one, two years - three years sometimes. That's a big part of it, for us, is making sure we know these players inside and out and then putting the information out there so we can make good, solid decisions."'

Marker Buffalo Bills claim safety Trae Elston off waivers from Cleveland Browns [1:52 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Elston went undrafted in the 2016 NFL draft, but was signed shortly after the conclusion of the draft by the New Orleans Saints. Elston made it all the way to the team's final cuts before being released by the team.'

Marker Buffalo Bills owner Terry Pegula cracks Doug Marrone joke at Sabres press conference [1:51 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Pegula cracked a grin when he said, "we all know how that started." Clearly he hasn't forgotten the way Marrone left, but he's also not too bent out of shape about it. Much like the infamous "tank," Marrone's departure is not something anyone in Buffalo will forget anytime soon.'

Marker Buffalo Bills and Sabres owner Terry Pegula seems to have learned from Rex Ryan mess [1:50 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Now Pegula has to actually deliver a winner. He's appeared in over his head with both franchises at times. Maybe he's starting to learn some lessons along the way. He's certainly leaning on discipline, structure and communication as his new buzz words.'

Marker Buffalo Bills holding private workout with Alabama safety Eddie Jackson [1:49 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'Jackson is projected to go late on day two by CBS Sports and early on day three by'

Marker Optimism crumbles easily for Bills fans [1:48 AM]
Canandaigua Daily Messenger reports: 'This carousel wheel of coaching changes isn’t doing the players any favors, nor any good for the team. Besides, wouldn’t a playoff berth this coming season be a nice high school graduation gift for the fans who were born in the same year the Bills last made the playoffs?'

Marker Bills claim safety Elston a day after being waived by Browns [1:47 AM]
AP reports: 'He has yet to play in an NFL game. Elston initially signed with New Orleans last year as an undrafted rookie free agent, after being a four-year starter at Mississippi.'

Marker Bills awarded waiver claim for S Elston [1:46 AM] reports: 'After being released a month later he signed to Cleveland’s active roster. Waived by the Browns in Week 15, the club signed him to their practice squad and then signed him in January as a reserve/future free agent.'

Marker On the Clock: Tapping into cornerback preferences [1:46 AM] reports: 'Cornerback looks like an obvious positional need with Stephone Gilmore, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Corey White no longer on the roster from last year’s squad.'

Marker Bills Today: McDermott sees progress at veteran minicamp [1:45 AM] reports: '“They’ve been very receptive to it. More so honestly than I would’ve thought,” McDermott admitted. “It doesn’t happen everywhere like that. We’ve got a lot of work to do and there will be days that are tougher than the last one and that’s really what professional sports is all about. Having a group of men and women that can hang together through the tough times."'

Marker Schedule says NFL isn’t optimistic about Bills [2:18 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'The Dallas Cowboys, one of the NFL’s marquee teams, play only two games with 1 o’clock Sunday starts. The other 14 are either Thursday, Sunday or Monday nights or in the late Sunday afternoon national television time slot. Buffalo is just the opposite, playing 14 games at 1 p.m. Sunday … including all eight at New Era Field.'

Marker Bills, Sabres media endure a bizarre day [2:17 PM]
Olean Times Herald reports: 'But the idea that the general manager, who’s closest to the scouting department and would seemingly be the de facto expert on college talent, isn’t part of a press conference dealing with the draft, was an unmistakeable snub of Whaley.'

Marker McDermott's solo act sets tone for different Bills draft [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"We have to weigh all the opinions that are in the room and, certainly, Doug has great familiarity with the players because he's been looking at these players for a long time," McDermott said. "So I'm trusting Doug on that and his staff in terms of their experience around these players and what's happening on campus with these players over the course of the last one, two years, three years sometimes.'

Marker Draft a QB at 10? Tyrod Taylor says he's not worried if the Bills do just that [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"Just like any other position, in order to do our job the right way, for us to just ignore certain positions wouldn't be doing my job, or" General Manager Doug Whaley "doing his job. We're going to look at every position, so that we know that 'X' player is sitting there, we know them inside and out and we can make a good, solid decision for this organization. Quarterback is no different."'

Marker Bills still debating whether to match Mike Gillislee's contract offer [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'The Bills have until Monday to make that call. The Patriots' offer is reportedly for two years and $6.4 million, with $4 million in the first year. The Bills last year elected not to match the contract offer to wide receiver Chris Hogan, allowing him to sign with New England as a restricted free agent.'

Marker Bills still mulling what to do with Sammy Watkins' contract option [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"The hardest part about that is, with Sammy’s situation, is there’s not going to be much different physically because of the limitations with the injury for us to evaluate prior to the deadline. That said, we’re still going through that."'

Marker Tim Graham: Got a mock itch? Scratch it yourself [1:55 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Seven of the first nine choices were defensive players. With no quarterbacks taken, I went with North Carolina's Mitchell Trubisky for grins.'

Marker Bills play brunt of AFC East games in December [1:54 AM]

Marker A dark, dreary, dysfunctional day for Buffalo sports [1:52 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'It's amazing to think Whaley is still employed and Murray is gone. Of course, Whaley has been diminished in the organization. From the day McDermott was hired, it has been clear that the coach's vision is now the one driving the football operation.'

Marker Jerry Sullivan's Hot Read: One GM down, one to go [1:51 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'While this latest purge is a bold and warranted one, it surely doesn't paint the Pegulas as a stable sports ownership. Maybe they'll get it right this time, but it perpetuates the general dysfunction of their two major pro franchises and heightens the perception that they're over their heads owning multiple sports teams.'

Marker 3 reasons the Bills should draft: Louisville S Josh Harvey-Clemons [1:50 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'At 6-foot-4, Harvey-Clemons is massive for a safety. Because of that, he could play some hybrid linebacker. In fact, he's worked out at both positions for teams during the pre-draft process. Scouting reports refer to him as a willing, physical tackler, which is a trait Bills coach Sean McDermott has mentioned he looks for (what coach wouldn't, right?).'

Marker Bills' Cyrus Kouandjio involved in bizarre incident with police [1:49 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Kouandjio was found in a T-shirt without pants, but wearing underwear, wandering in a field after climbing over an electric fence, authorities said.

Marker Buffalo Bills face tough finish to a difficult 2017 schedule [1:47 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'If the Bills are somehow in the playoff chase at this point, the final five games are going to be quite a test as they play division rivals Miami and New England in four of those games.'

Marker Bills' Cyrus Kouandjio admitted to Buffalo-area hospital [1:46 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'The News’ source said when the officers tried to detain Kouandjio, he yelled “Shoot me!” Thursday, an Erie County police spokesperson told ESPN that Kouandjio did not say that and was actually "compliant, courteous and polite." He was not arrested, but he was transported to the hospital to be evaluated. He was checked into the hospital and was reportedly still there Thursday.'
