Marker Polian likes what he sees from Bills, 'but it's going to take a little time' [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"You can see the roster taking shape," Polian said. "It's going to take a little while. I know people don't want to hear that, but it's going to take a little while. Sean's got to install his way of doing things and he already has, obviously, but it takes a full season for that to take hold. He's going to have to get to know the players, so this year will kind of be a breaking-in year.'

Marker Bills notebook: Jim Kelly provides a health update, Cornelius Bennett plans to be around, Thurman Th [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '"I travel now, thank God. I speak more than I ever have by far, but when you go places, you see people that have the same cancer you have had," he said. "You see other people struggling and realize you don't have it that bad. I'm blessed that I'm able to go out and hopefully make a difference for others. I do understand that some people have that attitude that they're done, no more, but if I can change their mind and give their family a little more hope, then that's what I'm going to do."'

Marker Bucky Gleason's Power Take: Beane should remember his message before signing Maclin [1:57 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'Bills coach Sean McDermott knew Maclin from their two seasons together in Philadelphia. McDermott can assume his mentor, Chiefs coach Andy Reid, had good reasons for dumping Maclin. By signing him, Beane would run the risk of veering from his own message.'

It’s like you’ve gone home again,’ ’’ said Hall of Fame general manager Bill Polian, 74, the architect of those clubs. “But it’s time for a new generation of stars to step forward and make their mark. We’ve done our thing. Let’s have new guys step forward and do things and get that same feeling of excitement and pride that we’re so happy to have been a part of.’’'

Marker Thurman Thomas doesn't think Buffalo Bills RB LeSean McCoy is slowing down any time soon [1:55 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"He's a young 29," Thomas said at Jim Kelly's annual charity golf tournament. "I think he's a young 29. I know everybody says, 'Oh, he's 30 that's when he goes down.' With this guy, I don't see it. I don't see it happening."'

Marker Despite another change, Bills greats still trying to Bill-eve [1:54 AM]
Batavia Daily News reports: '“(McDermott) wanted to know what we knew, he wanted to know what we thought. I like what they’ve got. Now it’s just a matter of the team getting the talent around him, or getting his type of guys, and learning the system,” Talley said.'

I would love to have him.”'

Marker Buffalo Bills in preliminary talks to sign free agent WR Jeremy Maclin (report) [1:57 AM]

Marker Buffalo Bills LeSean McCoy, Tyrod Taylor trying to recruit WR Jeremy Maclin [1:56 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: '"Not to brag, but I was the first guy he talked to when the news broke," McCoy said at his charity softball game in Rochester Sunday. "I kind of understand because I've been through it. Maybe not to the extreme of being released, but being traded. That's basically telling you, 'You're not good enough for us.' I understand that. He was hurt, but I played with him and I know the guys in the locker room and I know he can help us out tremendously. I've been doing my recruiting already. Don't be surprised if it happens."'

Marker Bills players recruiting WR Jeremy Maclin, report says team is interested [1:55 AM]

Marker Happy and healthy in Buffalo, Bills RB LeSean McCoy chasing history [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You go from a place where you’re always there to somewhere else, you’ve got to adjust and adapt, and I’ve done that. This is like home to me.”'

Marker Jay Skurski's Bills Mailbag: All things Jeremy Maclin, new stadium talk and a playoffs timeline [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'So what's the likelihood the Bills sign him? That depends on Maclin's price tag, for starters. The Bills have shown with their interest in tight end Gary Barnidge recently that they're not against adding to the roster at this point, but spending big money to do it doesn't seem to be in their plans. With about $15 million in space under the salary cap, they should have room to do just about anything they want, including go after Maclin, who should have some good years left at 29.'

Marker Vic Carucci's Bills analysis: Taylor isn't under all that much pressure [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'In his case, though, it's more about being able to preserve what is left of his stature in the NFL after taking a $10-million pay cut over two years to remain with the Bills. That only happened because the rest of the league, including some of its most quarterback-needy teams, spoke loudly about how it perceives Taylor.'

Marker Buffalo Bills roster shows strength on both lines, weaknesses at WR and DB [1:58 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: 'Now, the group I’m most concerned about is linebacker. Lorenzo Alexander is nothing more than a third-down pass rusher, Preston Brown is mediocre, and Reggie Ragland is essentially an unproven rookie coming off a serious knee injury. They just signed Gerald Hodges. OK, whatever. Ramon Humber? Plus, neither of the rookie draft picks figures to play much. Let’s hope Doug Whaley was right about Ragland when he drafted him in the second round in 2016.'

Marker 5 reasons the Buffalo Bills could sign free agent WR Jeremy Maclin [1:57 AM]
Syracuse Post Standard reports: 'No one can argue that wide receiver is one of the Bills' weakest positions. The Bills' top three receivers entering the season are Sammy Watkins, Zay Jones and Andre Holmes. Watkins is a dynamic player when healthy, but a foot injury limited him in 2016. Zay Jones should be a quality addition to Buffalo's offense, but the rookie is currently dealing with a knee sprain. Holmes, Buffalo's top free agent addition at receiver, is coming off of a 14 catch campaign. There's plenty of question marks with Buffalo's top three and beyond.'

Marker Bills Today: Beane leaves good first impression on MMQB [1:56 AM] reports: 'And so now, a less than a month later, it’s time to give Beane his share of credit. Not only does the organization have the alignment it’s lacked—assistant GM Joe Schoen worked with Beane in Carolina, and with VP of player personnel Brian Gaine in Houston—the Bills didn’t have to push candidates into jobs where they weren’t qualified.'
