Found July 13, 2012 on The Football Fan Spot:
According to BuffaloBills.com, there is a 4 way competition for the Bills’ nickel cornerback job this offseason with 2012 1st round Stephon Gilmore and 2011 2nd round pick Aaron Williams expected to start outside at cornerback. The 4 players competing are Terrence McGee, Justin Rogers, Ron Brooks, Leodis McKelvin. McGee is entering his age 32 season and restructured to a 2 year, 4 million dollar deal earlier this offseason, after missing most of last season with injury. Brooks is a 4th round rookie. McKelvin is a former 1st round pick bust of the 2008 NFL Draft. Rogers was a 7th round pick in 2011. The Bills’ website says Rogers is currently the favorite, but it looks pretty wide open right now.

Hugh Douglas picks New York Jets to win AFC East

At least one analyst isn't buying the New York Jets' 8-8 season in 2011 as a jumping off point for a Jets tailspin. ESPN analyst and retired NFL defensive end Hugh Douglas has pegged the Jets as not only the biggest threat to knock off the New England Patriots, but he has outright picked the Jets to win the AFC East this season.

Dissecting the running back by committee of Spiller/Jackson

Don't let them fool you. They don't like each other. Alright, let me rephrase that. Everyone on this Bills team loves each other. You can tell by the way they engage with each other on Twitter. Even though the team has only won 10 games in two years, you never seem to hear any leaks about discontent in the locker room. No trying to throw the other guy under the bus. No...

David Nelson is winning

I can't tell you that I knew David Nelson would soon become a starter when the Bills signed him as an undrafted free agent two summers ago. I didn't know if his 6'5, 215-pound frame could get past the speed of NFL corners or if he would even get a fair shot. I do know that starters climb out of the undrafted pile once in a blue moon. I do know undrafted players rarely...
