Scratch one more team from the potential "Move to L.A" theory in the NFL.
State lawmakers and the Buffalo Bills announced Friday morning they've come to an agreement that will keep the football team playing in Buffalo, for more than likely at least the next 10-years.
The deal all but locks the team in, by stipulating any relocation would trigger a $400 million relocation penalty. Except---in year 7 of the deal. (odd-but not explained)
In return, the state will spend a good chunk of money to renovate the somewhat antiquated Ralph Wilson stadium, which will add to what the team and the city/county will add.

This is a pretty strong statement for a team considered high up on the potential relocation list. There was a lot of concern that when team owner Ralph Wilson passes away, his heirs would move the team to a more profitable location.

It leaves s...

Stevie Johnson's season has gone much like the one-handed catch the Buffalo Bills receiver made last weekend.
It looked marvelous: Johnson leaping over the middle to snag the ball with one hand, bring it in and control it before he landed on the turf for a 25-yard gain. Trouble is, the drive stalled and Buffalo lost the game.
''It's a pretty cool catch,''...
The Buffalo Bills continue to make their annual pilgrimage to the Great White North to play at least one official home game in Toronto, Canada per NFL season, but that does not mean that all of the players are on board. In fact, at least one Bills player is getting sick of this tradition.

The Bills have two divisional games left with equal caliber teams. They beat the Dolphins in Buffalo and now travel to Miami. They lost to the Jets in New York and now host them. Common logic says they should split those two games, which would put them at 6-10. I don’t...
This Sunday, the Buffalo Bills (5-9) take on the Miami Dolphins (6-8) in Miami at Sun Life Stadium.
