Marker McKelvin happy Bills are returning to scheme he likes [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“Since when don’t they select a cornerback, you know?” McKelvin said of his reaction to the Bills taking Florida State’s Ronald Darby in the second round this year. “They’ve done it plenty of years when I’ve been here. ... It really doesn’t matter, as long as those guys come in and help contribute to what we’ve got going on, which is to get to the playoffs. That’s all I really care about.”'

Marker Getting Kelly home was a game-changer [1:58 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'I believe that this overwhelming love for my city and community was shaped out of the deep heartache that my family experienced during the life and death of my brother as well as my dad’s cancer battle. I’ve always loved Western New York, but never as much as I do now. And I’ve never witnessed people come together the way they did when my father battled cancer in 2013 and 2014. These aren’t the type of people who just rally with you during the good times. Rather, they see your need when you’re down for the count, and they pick you up off the ground and hold you up when you can no longer stand on your own.'

Marker Rex Ryan using lessons learned with Jets to shape Bills tenure [9:00 PM] reports: '"I've had six years of experience," he said Wednesday, a few feet away from the field where he held his second OTA session as the newest coach of the Buffalo Bills. "So am I gonna be better now? Of course. You're not gonna be worse by having experience. The other thing is understanding what's important, because the second time, I was lucky -- I got to choose where to go. The thing about that was, go to an organization where you see the direction, and it's the same direction (you believe in)."'

Marker Eagles' Kelly says McCoy was wrong to question his motives [8:55 PM]

Rochester D&C reports: '"I'm excited," Ryan said as he stood on the field inside Growney Stadium under a sun-filled blue sky. "The facilities are first rate for a training camp.

Marker Will the Buffalo Bills give Marcell Dareus a contract on par with Ndamukong Suh, Gerald McCoy? [8:48 PM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: 'Is Dareus worth that much? He's been a step below those two in terms of production over the last few years, but not by much.

Marker Graham takes long range look at safety [8:35 PM] reports: '“We’ve worked him a lot at corner, we’re confident he can jump right back in there,” said Rex Ryan. “He’s going to need a lot of reps at safety. That’s where he’s going to be getting the majority of his work. I’m not saying he won’t go to corner, I’m sure he’ll play some there. We really want him to focus on safety right now.”'

Marker Erin Kelly discover that crying can help build character [1:56 AM]
Buffalo News reports: 'As his little girl I was tough too. Tough but shattered – with my tears coming from a kind of heartbreak I had never felt before. Nearly paralyzed, all I could do was sit there and pray, hold his hand, and weep with him. And in that rare, recklessly vulnerable moment, we threw away the playbook, and allowed our unguarded eyes to meet, my father trusting me with his tears and me hanging my broken heart on my sleeve. I’ve never felt closer to my dad, never seen him stronger, and I don’t think either of us have ever been more “Kelly Tough!”'

Marker Ryan to give Graham a shot at safety [1:55 AM]
Rochester D&C reports: '"I'm not saying he won't go to corner, because I'm sure he'll play some there, but we really want him to focus on safety right now," Ryan said of Graham, who played corner, nickel corner, and some safety last year for Buffalo.'

Marker Matt Cassel brushes off questions about Patriots QB Tom Brady, 'Deflategate' [1:53 AM]
Syracuse Post-Standard reports: '"I'm really not going to get into that," said Cassel said at Bills OTAs. "Obviously that was a league decision and it's something that, the league came down with a ruling, and we're going to go out there and play against whoever's going to be out there on the field. But in terms of the actual penalty itself, like I said, you're going to have to ask the league about that."'

Marker Buffalo Bills DT Marcell Dareus on contract negotiations: 'Just turn on the tape' [1:52 AM]

Marker Bills' Ryan has his team practicing differently [1:48 AM]
WGR-AM reports: 'Offensive coordinator Greg Roman has brought something with him from the Niners. The coaches don’t correct mistakes on the field, it’s done during film work and meetings. That puts quite a few more reps on the field. Ryan said, “We have two drills going at once. It might be hard to follow, but the reps are so much different. The third group used to get only seven reps if I would’ve kept the same way of doing things and now they’re getting 30 reps, so it’s a big difference.”'

Marker Bills begin OTAs; sights and notes [1:47 AM]

Marker Rex Ryan talking up Tyrod Taylor [1:46 AM]
WGR-AM reports: '"Tyrod is a young man that I'm excited about," Ryan said.

You get all those reps, the more repetition we can get this time of year the better for all of us.”'

Marker Bills QBs get equal air time [1:59 AM]
Buffalo News reports: '“You just keep rotating your guys like that,” Ryan said. “So they’re all going to get to work with each other. It’s not that big a deal right now.

You want everybody and give guys fair chances and a lot of times, the cream will rise to the top and you’ll see something.'
