Jim Kelly is starting to get back into his normal routine. This week he's been able to play with the kids at his annual football camp, running and throwing the football around. His journey back from cancer is going well. At his worst points, he prayed he would be able to feel the way he does now. "I feel awesome,"... Read More

One of the under-the-radar questions facing the Buffalo Bills heading into the 2016 season is who will return kicks and punts for the team. Of the eight players who did that more than once last year, six of them are no longer with the team. Percy Harvin retired. Leodis McKelvin was cut, as were Marcus Thigpen, Boobie... Read More

1. Stephon Gilmore's continued absence from spring practices has created a huge opportunity for sixth-round draft pick Kevon Seymour. Based on coach Rex Ryan's comments, the Southern California product is making the most of it. "He has already elevated, kind of like what we saw immediately with Ronald Darby," Ryan said...

1. Since joining the Buffalo Bills in a trade last year, LeSean McCoy has made more headlines for things he's done off the field than what he did during games. McCoy's first season in Buffalo was acceptable – 12 games, 1,192 yards from scrimmage, five touchdowns – but his Pro Bowl selection felt like it was awarded... Read More

Dan Carpenter has never been one to mince words. So it’s no surprise that the Buffalo Bills’ kicker didn’t have some deep, introspective explanation Wednesday for what was likely the strangest season of his eight-year career in 2015. “It’s black and white. You either make it through the yellow things or you... Read More

Ralph Wilson's support for the Pro Football Hall of Fame has continued since the founding owner of the Buffalo Bills died in 2014. The latest example of that will open in mid-July, when "A Game for Life" makes its debut. A theater experience two years in the making, "A Game for Life" is described by the Hall as a... Read More

1. After reading the most recent interview Rex Ryan and his brother, Rob, gave to Sports Illustrated's Jenny Vrentas, it's hard not to come away shaking your head. They are like the real-life versions of Eastbound and Down's Kenny Powers. Understandably, that doesn't sit well with all Bills fans -- some of whom would... Read More

The latest talking point for Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan centers on communication. Namely, how much better it will be in 2016. “I think we are a zillion miles ahead of where we were last year,” Ryan said this week, serving up a healthy dose of hyperbole. “That goes without saying, especially in the...

1. Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan should be applauded for the way he's handling Marquise Goodwin's decision to be away from the team while he pursues a spot on the U.S. Track and Field team for the upcoming Olympic games in Brazil. "My understanding is he has the number one jump in the world, I think, at this point," Ryan... Read More

It's five down, two to go for the Buffalo Bills in regards to signing draft picks. The team reached an agreement with second-round linebacker Reggie Ragland on Tuesday. The Alabama product was taken with the 41st overall selection, which the Bills traded up for by sending the No. 49 pick and two fourth-round draft... Read More

The Buffalo Bills' offseason program kicks into another gear Monday morning when the team holds its first of 10 "organized team activities." Although the sessions are voluntary, attendance at such spring practices is usually very good. The Bills, however, might be without one of their elite defensive players if... Read More

The Buffalo Bills have yet to hold even their first "organized team activity" of the spring. But with the draft now completed, the vast majority of players who will make up the 53-man roster are now on the team. The Bills can take 90 players to training camp, and currently have 89 on their roster. It's fairly easy to... Read More

Jonathan Martin and Richie Incognito will forever be linked. As the central figures of the 2013 bullying scandal that rocked the Miami Dolphins – Martin the abused and Incognito one of the main abusers – their careers have gone in vastly different directions. Martin has washed out of professional football, retiring... Read More

The Buffalo Bills started the process of signing their draft picks Wednesday, announcing a deal with cornerback Kevon Seymour. The Southern California product becomes the first of Buffalo's seven draft picks to sign a contract. Seymour, a 6-foot-0, 185-pounder, is a native of Pasadena, Calif. During four seasons with...

The Buffalo Bills never reissued four jerseys since last worn. Jim Kelly's No. 12 is retired. Bruce Smith's No. 78 will be honored at the home opener. Thurman Thomas' No. 34 should be retired next year. Three proper. Three righteous. The other jersey will not be retired. For that reason and some others, isn't... Read More

Nobody ever again will wear Bruce Smith's No. 78 for the Buffalo Bills. While that honor was understood since Smith's last Bills game 17 years ago, the Bills officially will retire his jersey at their Sept. 15 home opener against the New York Jets. The Bills will announce plans for the event this morning. The... Read More

1. The Bills could field one hell of a 4x100 relay team if they wanted. With new running back Dri Archer joining wide receivers Marquise Goodwin and Kolby Listenbee, the Bills have three players with Olympic-caliber speed. Goodwin, in fact, might participate in Rio, while the ever-confident Listenbee said he could if he... Read More

The Buffalo Bills have made a commitment to getting faster in the past couple weeks. After TCU receiver Kolby Listenbee in the draft, the team added another burner Tuesday in running back Dri Archer, whom they claimed off waivers from the New York Jets. A former third-round draft pick in 2014 by the Pittsburgh... Read More

1. First it was "all in," the hokey, uninspired new slogan of the Buffalo Bills that was force-fed to fans as a way of showing them "this year will be different, we promise." Now, the team's PR machine has turned its attention to how much winning the team's first three draft picks did in college. Sure, Clemson's Shaq... Read More

1. It's impossible not to notice the improved atmosphere around One Bills Drive these days. Perhaps it's because time really does heal all wounds, but the toxic environment around the team at the end of last season has been replaced by a really positive vibe. That's likely the case in every NFL city – spring is a time... Read More
