He did some things no quarterback had ever done before—and some that no QB ever should
Only a few practices in, but there are already a number of compelling figures among the 91 players at Bills camp. Players are scrambling to make the roster or attempting to lock-down starting positions. Young players are looking to take the next step in their careers. Players are rebounding from injury and some newcomers are just hoping to make a good first impression.
Antonio Brown's refusal to play in Buffalo might actually end up being a good thing for the Bills. After watching their trade attempt for Brown fall through last week, the Bills rebounded on Tuesday by basically getting a two-for-one deal. Instead of writing a gigantic check to Brown, the Bills are now getting two receivers in the form of Cole Beasley and John Brown, who have both agreed to terms with the team.
The Josh Allen era in Buffalo will begin in earnest this Sunday. Bills coach Sean McDermott announced that the rookie quarterback will start Buffalo's Week 2 home opener against the Chargers.
If we learned one thing from the NFL's predraft process, it's that Josh Allen definitely uses Twitter, which means there's probably a good chance he's going to find out about the scolding hot tweet that Jalen Ramsey indirectly sent his way on Friday. As you may or may not know, Ramsey loves to talk trash. Also, as you may or may not know, Allen kind of has a reputation for not being the most accurate passer, and when you combine those two things, hilarity ensues.
The Buffalo Bills traded up for Josh Allen, but the team isn't christening him the starter. Bills general manager Brandon Beane says Allen will begin behind AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman.
The Bills have signed AJ McCarron to a two-year deal, the team announced Wednesday. After several quarterbacks signed with new teams this week, Buffalo was perhaps the only remaining spot where the former Bengals QB could start.
Will Kelvin Benjamin make his Bills debut on Thursday night? How much does it even matter? Yes, the Bills certainly needed a boost at wide receiver. Second-round rookie Zay Jones’s development has been slow, and “slow” is a good word to describe the rest of Buffalo’s receiving corps. Benjamin, far from a speedster, doesn’t change that—he’s a big-bodied possession target, effective on slant patterns but not quick enough in his throttle-down and direction-changing to beat defenders with a full route tree. Also, he’s the type of receiver a quarterback must be willing to target when he’s covered, but Tyrod Taylor is not a tight-window anticipation thrower.
The Buffalo Bills' Week 1 victory over the New York Jets was expected. New York is considered one of the worst, if not the worst, team in the NFL. How much movement did the Bills make in various power rankings after their 21-12 win against the Jets? Here's a look at where various media outlets rank the Bills.
Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott gave a vote of confidence Friday to Tyrod Taylor after his performance in Thursday's preseason loss to the Philadelphia Eagles raised questions about Taylor's standing as the starting quarterback. "I have all the confidence in the world in Tyrod," McDermott said, later saying he expects Taylor to be the Week 1 starter.
Sammy Watkins is headed to L.A., and now Jared Goff has a No. 1 wide receiver. But it might be good for Goff and bad for Watkins. Here's why, plus fallout of who else is affected.
He knew what was coming, but true to form, Ryan wanted a say in his firing. Now, the Bills begin the process of moving forward.
The former Bills first-round pick, who has spent his three-year career in Buffalo in stretches of both injury rehab and on-field brilliance, could see some time against Jacksonville this Sunday, according to Bills head coach Rex Ryan.
The NFL's second-leading rusher will be out Sunday, and possibly beyond, with a hamstring injury.
Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins is dealing with discomfort in his foot, the same one he broke last season. Buffalo has a short week with a Thursday night tilt against the Jets coming up.
Bills rookie running back Jonathan Williams was arrested early Thursday morning and charged with driving while intoxicated.
