BY DAN BEGNOCHEIt's been three years since the Buffalo Bills selected Alex Carrington out of Arkansas State in the draft. The defensive tackle thinks Year 4 will be the year he shows the league why. (photo: Doug Kerr, Flickr)Since his third-round selection in 2010, Carrington has been stout contributor to the team's defensive line -- when given the opportunity. Despite participating in only 37 percent of the regular season snaps, Carrington has amassed four sacks, six pass breakups and a forced fumble.His proficiency hasn't been lost on newly appointed defensive line coach Anthony Weaver, who's seen solid form and untapped talent from the 26-year-old since his arrival."Loved him, loved him from the minute I put the tape on him," he recently told Chris Brown of buffalobills.com. "I know he didn't get a bunch of reps, but the reps he got he was doing work out there."Looking at his tape last year, he played with so much technique that it's am...

Jairus Byrd Tweet Makes it Look an Awful Lot Like He Won’t be Back

From (former?) Buffalo Bills Safety Jairus Byrd: #BillsMafia y’all are dope, i will always have much respect for you. — jairus byrd (@jairusbyrd) July 3, 2013   Nothing conclusive yet, but it’s tough to read that and not think that Byrd has played his last game for the Buffalo Bills. Players are usually too well coached to let anything that may affect negotiations slip. Jairus...

Bills Stock Watch #1

The Buffalo Bills Stock Watch (also known as the BUFFALO BILLS STOCK WOOWTCH) is a space for me to talk about some recent news and trends coming out of practices and Bills media. I won’t be writing this every week, but every so often when I feel like we need to check in on some things. These will probably include plenty more actual information and analysis of the team as we get...

Bills' Kevin Kolb: 'I don't buy what's being sold'

What's being sold is the idea that Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb is nothing but a mere placeholder for rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel, who many have assumed will be the starter in week 1. As the offseason so far has revealed, Kolb might actually be the better choice over unproven Manuel, at least goign into training camp. Manuel might be the long-term solution, but...

The Buffalo Bills Release UDFA WR Kevin Norrell

The Buffalo Bills have released UDFA wide receiver Kevin Norrell. Norrell, who played for Stony Brook recording 63 receptions for 1,388 yards last season, was signed by Buffalo at the end of April. Doing a quick search for Norrell led me to this highlight reel on YouTube. It’s pretty impressive and something tells me that he gets another shot elsewhere in the NFL. I hear the Raiders...

NFL Fantasy Outlooks: Buffalo Bills

QUARTERBACK It's a two way race in Buffalo between first round rookie E.J. Manuel and veteran addition Kevin Kolb. No fantasy owner should be relying on either one of these quarterbacks. Kolb is a very mediocre and injury prone quarterback, while Manuel could end up not starting. Even if Manuel does start, I'd expect him to have some rough weeks early on. If you have...

Buffalo Bills: Scott Chandler Ahead of Schedule, Eyes Training Camp Return

While the quarterback position for the Buffalo Bills is uncertain, one thing that is certain is whoever their signal caller is, could use a 6’7″ security blanket. Scott Chandler fits that bill and says he will be ready to go at the beginning of training camp. Chandler had ACL surgery and was projected to come back to the Bills at the beginning of the regular season, at the earliest...

Spiller surpass Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson as the best running back in the league this season? Let’s find out!

Chandler out to prove he's 'the guy' for Bills' QBs

BY DAN BEGNOCHEAt 6-foot-7, 260 pounds, tight end Scott Chandler is as reliable (and as deadly) over the middle as any of the Buffalo Bills' receivers. Now he's just trying to prove it to a new signal-caller. In 2011, 65 percent of his 389 receiving yards came in the center of the field, and in 2012, that rate was nearly identical with an increase in receptions and yards...

Buffalo Bills’ Big Name, Little Game List

Throughout the years there have been so many players that have signed with the Bills and I thought, “Great! This guy is really going to help us,” only to realize that their best days were behind them or their potential was just that…potential. The NFL has taught me that potential should never be confused with production. Here are some big name players (by position) who came...
